Bloco da Lama in Pictures

15 Apr

Okay, so I have been a bit crap in posting up some of my Carnival pictures – I can’t believe Carnival finished over a month ago!

In order to make amends I thought I would post some classic shots of the Bloco da Lama mud party in Paraty. This happens on the first Saturday of Carnival and is one of the most surreal yet incredible things I have ever been involved in.

Bloco da Lama

“Uga Uga” is what the people chant as they parade through the streets.


This is an actual person.



This guy was in the back of a horse-drawn carriage, which was legging it around the streets. His dog always looked quite confused.

I think you get the picture. It’s ridiculous!

    Wow, bro, your photography has really come along, great images. Which camera did you use to take these?

      Um, I don’t know how to break this to you bro, but I didn’t take these photos. I don’t even have a camera! These days I generally just find some appropriate photos on flickr and use them to illustrate my articles. Still, they are great images!
