Street Beauty

I am still chillaxing on the beach. In the meantime, enjoy this post courtesy of my efficient planning skills.

In September 2006, São Paulo passed an innovative law against "visual pollution," virtually eliminating outdoor advertising.

It's fantastic.

They have also made an effort to turn would-be graffiti artists into artists of a different sort. I commented on it in 2009, and here are some more lovely things I pass by routinely. Living in a megalopolis, I can tell you, it makes a big difference. I notice these pieces, and adore them.
