One day I was a boy, in the buildings of Belo Horizonte.

For those who do not know, the title of this thread is a part (in english) of music of the L˘ Borges, a member of the Clube da Esquina (Street Corner's Club, in free translation), one of the biggest musical movements of Brazilian popular music, originating in the BH. I will not put the video here, but those interested can listen to music by clicking this link.

The thread is short, only 35 photographs, and consists of a photo the other day and night; simultaneously. The daytime photos were taken from a observatory of Raja Gabaglia Avenue and a Belvedere neighborhood. The night photos were all taken from the viewpoint of the Mangabeiras neighborhood.

All photographs were taken by me.

Really!!

Although Belo Horizonte (BH) is much smaller than SŃo Paulo (SP), I think that it's the city which looks like most with SP all over the world, because it combines the brazillian architecture and the seas of highrises, just like SP... Maybe, BH and SP are the only two cities in the world which combines these two features... I really don't know another brazillian city which has these seas of highrises in this level...

Congratulations for this marvelous thread!! It shows BH just like the real Brazil is, with wealth and poverty living side by side...

In spite of its problems (that every big city has), Belo Horizonte is fantastic!! So cozy, charming, warm, cosmopolitam and hospitable. It will be the host city of the semi-final match in the 2014 world Cup.

Charles, I guess this thread should be posted in the "urban showcase" link, because the photos were taken by you... Anyway, I'm not sure about it...

I hope one day you can make a thread showing street level photos and the inhabitants of this beautiful city... I can't do this because I don't have such a good equipment like yours.
Cheers!

Yes, BH is the Brazilian city that looks more like Sao Paulo, despite being smaller (5 million people in Belo Horizonte compared to 20 million in SŃo Paulo).

Thank you for comment!

Despite all the problems, the city is a wonderful metropolis, rich, dynamic, cosmopolitan, and their quality of life is above the national level, edging closer to some U.S cities.

This thread here shows a little what you are asking. I'm preparing more threads of the genre.

Words fail me. Just spectacular.

I can see why Brazil is, now, one of the world's fastest growing economies.

To hear this about my city, said by someone from the land of The Beatles, my favorite rock band, is music to my ears. Thanks, brother! I'm a real beatlemaniac and I'm looking forward to go to your land very soon... It's one of my dreams...

Yes, Brazil is growing alarmingly fast. And Belo Horizonte grows and improves the same level over time. Thank you for comment!
