Honeymoon in Rio de Janeiro: Ipanema Sunset

Last night I realized I hadn’t finished showing you guys our honeymoon photos from Rio.

The photos today are very special to me.

Here’s the story behind them: Jorge and I had just been through one of the worst days of our lives as we missed our flight back to Mexico. I’d spent all morning crying at the airport and making desperate phone calls, then we went back to our vacation apartment for an afternoon nap. We woke up late afternoon, still with no idea how or when we were going to get home, and walked out toward Ipanema because that’s where the Subway shop was (extra vacation days = poor).

When I saw the sunset on Ipanema Beach, I knew that this was the reason we’d missed our flight. God wanted us to see this…

  1. Wow! That is BEAUTIFUL!
    The one where it’s kind of zoomed in on the sun and mountains, it’s a total framer!!! I’d blow it up too, if the file size allows for it!

    • It’s actually a tad blurry to be blown up since I took it with a bit of a close up on the camera… but no worries! I had something very cool done with one of these photos. I’ll blog about it next week šŸ™‚

  2. Oooh, i’ve been away for a while as it’s been crazy, but this is something I’ve been meaning to comment on. Every dark cloud has a silver lining and I’m certain, that day was blessed for you to receive despite the initial upset. i also like to think that we unconsciously sabotage ourselves when we really want to do something. In this case, there’s probably a big part of you both that just didn’t want to leave.
