this was cool







i have to admit,i usually only care about taking good flicks of graffiti i like, and i can be picky.

these shots were primarily about the photo, the station, the atmosphere.. or whatever. sowwy for the shit quality of the panels themselves if that's what you're after, Schnitzel

Thanks for posting them I'm a big fan of grilled subway systems so whatever shots you have look good to me. painted or un painted it's all good. just figured if you had heaps of painted one the passenger trains thread could use some help if you didn't wanna derail the thread..


boy I keep looking for a gap in the travel threads I've got india and vietnam to put up when the heat dies down!

i've had mate before and i dunno. it's ok. didn't see it much down there except for that stuff in a plastic container. those cups of water are funny as shit. i shoulda flicked one.

*i just found out russian visas are good for a maximum of one month. yay. that's going to be an adventure. dunno when yet though.



india and vietnam?! you need to just get on that. not much traffic in these parts.



and fuck yea. the bird park was awesome but i always feel pain for the captive animals in those things.

dope thread so far!


also went to some argentinian restaurant called "sigue la vaca" (follow the cow)...all you can eat meat ftw! /no homo


Siga la vaca was fukn dope, the one by the river? Yeah those all you can eat BBQ joints were the fukn bomb, like 99% meat and then a piss tiny lil salad bar :) Also mate tea is fukn dope. I still drink it but getting it imported to Oz is pricey.


Can we see some more BA metro shots pls? or can you post them in the passenger trains thread?


I know this ain't my thread but if people want lemme know. I got quite a few train flicks when I was there, trains can run for a few years over there, they just buff the windows. Some lines were crazy like old NY or some parts of Europe now where ya just sit and every train had a panel or 2 on em. I went to certain lines and just sat there until I'd seen every train. Good times

..and finally, onto Rio.


the security guy stopped me after i'd taken this photo, the last of like 5..

he was damn nice about it though.





two views from Sugarloaf/Azucar




the redeemer statued is in the clouds



and two from corcovado, which i thought was more stunning




(sugarloaf in the distance)



oh you redeemer you.

having a wide angle is so awesome. everyone was laying on the ground trying to get it all in. my man and i are playing like we're patting jesus on the head without even bending down.



yet another corcovado view

gaaah the beaches




probably should have brought a tiny tripod.




looking back, Rio is the picturesque, beautiful city. even though the Favelas sneak up on you.




by i liked being in Sampa more.


i'd love to go back, Recife, Florianopolis.. lotsa cities still to see. then there's Carnival.
