Copacabana Beach - Today, 8:40 AM

I took these shots this morning at Avenida Atlantica in Copacabana Beach, here in Rio. Spring is around the corner for us and the weather has been beautiful recently. In the evenings you can still feel the chill in the air but daytime has brought sunshine and beach weather. I love seeing the kids play in the sand and the second picture shows a group of boys in "soccer school". There are several "little schools" - paid classes for soccer, volleyball, body-boarding, etc. - teaching kids and adults to play certain sports, along the beaches of Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana. There are also Tai-chi and regular exercise classes for the older folks. I also love the classic art-deco facades of the traditional buildings along Avenida Atlantica, reminding us of the glamorous "Old Copacabana". Enjoy!
