  4. Há sempre fotografias que nos impressionam: umas porque nos encantam os sentidos e até libertam a imaginação... outras porque nos chocam profundamente. A imagem do rapaz dentro da mala é uma delas. Fiquei pasmada quando as vi num noticiário aqui há tempos.

  9. Amazing photos!!!!

    Acredite ou não, a que me impressionou mais - sempre acontece quando vejo cenas dessas - foi a do garoto contorcionista. Até me sinto mal a ver contorcionismos. E os chineses são perito nessa arte.

    Kisses and hugs, Pedro!

    1. É efectivamente impressionante, Graça.
      Asa horas que os miúdos têm que treinar, e as sevícias que sofrem, para conseguir aqueles resultados.
      Até revolta!
