Photographer's Note

We can choose five or more iconic buildings of Braslia, but for sure we can say the most symbolic building of the city is the national Congress, inaugurated in the same day of the city and visible at each day on TV, and ever hated by many as a symbol of the bad politicians.
Here I was at side of the Big Axis, the other half part of the big avenue is ahead, behind of the National Congress. It was a Saturday afternoon, it was empty.
The Congress skyscraper is composed by two twin buildings, but they aren't perfect retangular boxes. Inside them there are hundreds of offices, one for each deputy and senator. The lower part of the building is composed by the meeting rooms of the Senate and deputies chamber, these bowls you see are the roof of each one. Coincidence or not, the sunrise occurs exactly between these twin buildings in the day of the foundation of the city, April, 21th.
Why the grass is dry? Central Brazil has a climate divided in only two seasons: six months of rainy days and six months of drought. When I arrived in the city the drought was finishing.
Can you see the three men (four) seated in the chairs under the bowl ?

Podemos escolher cinco ou mais edifcios icnicos de Braslia, mas com certeza o mais simblico da cidade o Congresso Nacional, inaugurado no mesmo dia da cidade e visvel a cada dia nas nossas TVs, odiado por muitos como sendo smbolo da m poltica.
Aqui eu estava ao lado do Eixo, a outra metade da grande avenida est localizada atrs do congresso. Era sbado a tarde e por isso a rua estava vazia.
Os arranha-cus do congresso so compostos de dois prdios gmeos, cada um abrigando o escritrio de um senador ou deputado. Coincidncia ou no, o sol nasce no meio dos dois prdios no dia do aniversrio da cidade, 21 de abril.
A parte baixa do prdio abriga os plenrios e salas de reunio, cada bacia o teto de um plenrio.
Por que a grama est seca ? O clima do Brasil central tem apenas duas estaes, sendo seis meses de dias chuvosos e seis meses de dias de sol. Quando da minha visita a seca estava acabando.
Conseguem ver os homens sentados debaixo das bacias ?
