The past year was tied for the second warmest since 1880 according to a new analysis of global surface temperatures by NASA scientists. Year 2009 was a small fraction of a degree cooler than 2005, the warmest on record (The full article can be found on ScienceDaily).
The hot summer of 2009 is followed by a cold winter. BBC Weather forecast for Kiev gives low temperatures all week, and night temperatures around -25°C (-13°F) for the next several days. Now is not the best time for many northern hemisphere naturists.
So, this weekend I’d like to blog the photos from the southern hemisphere, another side of the globe, where it is summer right now. And here are the photographs by Luiz Tadeu Duarte from Rio de Janeiro, Brasil (ltduarte on Flickr). These images are from his Ensaio 1 set on Flickr.

I would only say that, in my opinion, the photos are excellent and suggest to visit the Photographer’s gallery. When you see the work of a true artist, you begin to understand how art differs from anything else.
