When we arrived at this river in rural Maranhão, one of the first things I noticed, was this lone cow tied to a post on the rivers edge. While we played in the river, jumped from the bridges and sat & talked with each other, he just watched. When I went over to him, waist deep in the river I saw all of the lily pads and reeds lining the shore. The entire time I was taking his picture he just stared straight at me.

While in Maranhão we spent several days swimming in the clear rivers nearby. This little flower was tucked away under a bridge that we were swimming by. Day one it was late afternoon and the flower was in the shade. Day two just before 10 AM the sun was just hitting the flower and leaf dropping the background in the shadow of the bridge. Wading in the water up to my waist I made this image.

As I walked along the river I curiously watched a man wading out in it place a net stretching halfway across the width of the river. He then proceeded to make his way down the river. Using the long stick he had with him he brought the stick down on the water with a loud ‘Slap!’ to scare the fish into his net.
