Most beautiful Porto Alegre photos ever. From a pro photographers forum!

Not many people visited the FOUND city photos forum. And less people yet reply to photo threads of relatively unknown (in US) cities like Porto Alegre.


But I felt these pictures, which I found in a forum about PHOTOGRAPHY (not about cities or architecture) are incredible and DESERVED to be seen here at SSP.

I hope you enjoy, and spread the word about this thread


All the photos were taken from this forum http://www.sulfotoclube.net/

I will put the name of the authors in bold, any additional commentary to a photo will be in normal caracthers.

thanks for the comments Mello. Yes, the old downtown has very interesting architecture, but unfortunatelly, lack of investments in the old downtown has made companies abandon it and move elsewhere in the city. Therefore, the old downtown lacks more modern buildings, which are spread in other parts of the city, as in Mostardeiros street and 3rd Perimetral Avenue.



some new pics taken by FARRAPO















one of the city oldest highrises
