"The Real Girl from Ipanema?"This street art is located between Ipanema and Copacabana in Praca do Arpoador (Arpoador Park) near the beach. I am not sure the exact translation of the text on the wall but basically it suggests that this is what the true girls from Ipanema are like. I 'd have to say that this depiction, while humorous, is not entirely accurate.
The Velosos Bar-Cafe (now the Garota de Ipanema) is located a half mile away on Rua Vinícius de Moraes. It is here that Antônio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes were purported regulars. Jobim first witnessed at tall tan girl pass by Velosos. It was 17 year old Heloísa Eneida Menezes Paes Pinto that Jobim saw stroll by on here daily errands as well as on her way to the beach. Jobim was inspired to write the music to "The Girl from Ipanema", Moraes penned the Portuguese lyrics and Heloísa became the original girl from Ipanema.
The photo was taken with a Nikon F100 film camera using a 28-200mm f 4.5 Tamaron lens. The film used for this image is FujiPress 800. The approximate exposure is f 8 @ 1/250th second.
