brazilian carnival in the sambodrome São Paulo, 2001
XC1702, der carnival king of São Paulo 2001

The carnival in Brazil, colours, fantastic and imaginative dresses, samba, music, (almost) naked girls, dancing men (also valid for the street sweepers), swinging hips from young to old and all during night time, depending the city up to 8 following days and nights, non-stop, and business and political live are very restricted. The peak and highlight in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo are the shows of the procession of the samba schools inside the sambodromes. To get a little impression about this festival, we joined some photos together from the sambodromo São Paulo. Thereby we concentrated only on the 10 most important and popular samba schools.

Please some patience: The table of the photo gallery will build up dynamically and all 219 compressed images are load simultaneously. The total volume is almost 1 MB of datas plus processing management. Further explications, additional information as well as operating instructions at the end of this page.

By clicking the photos you get the enlargement of the picture itself. Images in broadsheet format are generally aligned on 98% of the window size, the base size in original format 1:1, means 560*840 pixels. The photo page is managed every time by the same program, only the imagem will be changed, so that there is no detailed description written about the shown scene. How the photo are build up and which options you have in service, are shortly joined together on the photo assistance page. On the page screen configuration you can organize the screen in that form that means the optimal adjustment and best organization of summary, photos, choice menu and external links for you.

To save memory and keep the loading time low, all photos are very high compressed. Please don't think we can't take photos, but the blur or out fo focus of the images are following reasons: the high compressing, the fast movements during night time as well as the scanning of slides. But the most important fact is the uninteresting making against unauthorizated copying and using for own commercial trades (unfortunately already happened). Anyway we hope you like our presentation and we are glad to get your feed-back and hear your opinion.
