14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The background of my heart

The sunsets, the river, the beetle represent the greatest homesickness of my hometown.It is a city in the interior of São Paulo, underdeveloped and with an unbelieving population of a better future. But when I see this image I feel faith, and that gives me the strength to follow and believe that it is possible.
