The girl from Ipanema.

The girl from Ipanema.

This youngster ran through the frame while this pic was being taken on Ipanema beach. We were in Rio de Janeiro with my friend Andrea who wanted to catch some sun on one of the most famous beaches in the world during her January visit to Brasil. The real “Garota de Ipanema” from the famous bossa nova song still lives in Rio, and is somewhat of a local celebrity.

Fa c t o id: “Garota de Ipanema” was written by Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinícius de Moraes and won the Grammy Record of the Year in 1965.
