A random selection of crowd and local flavour shots from the FIFA World Cup in Brazil this summer. My son Toby (aged 11) and I spent three weeks watching games in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Belo Horizonte. Wonderful people, great atmosphere – and not a bad father-son bonding experience either!
These and the other Brazil photos in the previous post were shot on a pocket Canon Powershot SD1200 IS, iPhone 5 and iPod Touch.
