Parliament Buildings, Brasilia, Brazil, 1972. by 


The parliament buildings in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, as I saw them in 1972 during an extensive study tour to North and South America.
Brasilia was then in its early stages of development and construction as planned by the greatest of South American architects " Oscar Niemeyer" . Oscar was then in exile, so I met with the head of the Planning Commission instead.
I was arrested for an hour ( by some fearsome uniformed soldiers with sub-machine guns) for photographing this and other buildings – until I could summon help from the Planning Commissioner.
Incidentally, Oscar Niemeyer died in December 2012 aged 104.
Olympus OM1. Scanned and restored from Kodachrome 64 slides in 2011.
Viewed 513 times as at January 11, 2014.

Keen long term member of the Pakenham Camera Club located in Victoria, Australia; and I specialise in landscape, travel, garden and outdoor photography generally.
I use only Olympus SLR;s and DSLR’s and I process my images using Apple computers and mainly Apple software..

  • Hello Cat. Thanks for your comment. Strange place Brasilia. Acidic soil causes serious attack on the white marble finishes to the major buildings.
