Grand Canyon em foto panorâmica

Algumas vezes, tiro várias fotos em sequência de alguma cena para depois montar um panorama completo. Tenho usando (e recomendo) um programa chamado AutoStitch. Infelizmente só para Windows, mas funciona muito bem com o CrossOver Linux Professional.

Abaixo um panorama do Grand Canyon, a partir de 3 fotos.

“Um beijo no coração”, “sou brasileiro” e o Tema da Vitória

No seu blog, o Flavio Gomes escreveu:

Tem três coisas que não suporto no Brasil. Gente que manda “um beijo no coração”, torcida boiola que canta “sou brasileiro, com muito orgulho, com muito amor” e Tema da Vitória bombando na caixa para qualquer porcaria que tenha rodas.

Só discordo um pouco da parte “Tema da Vitória bombando na caixa para qualquer porcaria que tenha rodas.” Eu não suporto o Tema da Vitória bombando na caixa para qualquer coisa. Já ouvi o Tema da Vitória bombando na caixa até para jogo de futebol de areia amador.

Now what?

It has been a long time since I’ve posted anything new here. But why, you might ask?

There are basically two reasons:

1. The main idea behind this blog was to have a place where family and friends could follow my whereabouts during vacation. Vacation is long gone.

2. Work and other personal activities/problems have consumed most of my resources.

Now what? What will I do with this blog? Only update it while on vacation? I guess not. I will try to keep it updated with my random ideas, and publish here whatever I feel like. At least this is my plan for now. Maybe this is the whole idea behind a blog anyway.

By the way, don’t be surprised if you see some posts in Portuguese.
