I’m submitting these photos to the event Thursday Special at Paula’s blog ‘Lost in Translation’.  Breaking The Rules. That’s what she had to say about it:

The theme for this Thursday’s Special is “Multitude”. It can be the masses (crowds) or multitude of just about anything (of animate or inanimate origin). It can even be a solitary (human) being with a multitude of worries drawn on his face. Get creative and have fun!

And here is what I selected:

My interpretation of multitude is based on this one:

the mass of ordinary people without power or influence.
noun: the multitude
“placing ultimate political power in the hands of the multitude”

I made these photos while being at Boa Viagem beach in Recife, Brazil. Here you will see ordinary people from young to old, working at the beach to make ends meet. Click on the photo see a larger version.

  2. “The mass of ordinary people without power or influence”. That’s a pretty powerful statement on its own.
    Those photos!! So vibrant! And so fitting! How did you find them all? Surely you hired people to make it a perfect fit LOL.
    These are fabulous.


  3. These are all great, and great fun!! The guy with the sunglasses…ha! But..what’s with the guy selling swimming pools…at the beach? How do you fill it with water? You do these prompts really well! Question: Phone or camera??
