One Lighthouse, 365 Clicks – A Photo Journal by Alves Filho

Alves Filho is a Brazilian photographer who spent a year photographing the Barra Lighthouse in Salvador, one picture each day. It’s the oldest lighthouse in the Americas and is part of a Portuguese fort (Forte de Santo Antônio da Barra), built in 1534 to defend Salvador from Dutch and indigenous attacks. It’s now a center of tourism and a prime place to view sunsets across the beautiful bay, Todos os Santos. Alves Filho’s 365 photos of this lighthouse are varied and creative, from straightforward shots of the lighthouse to more obscure, busy shots reminiscent of Where’s Waldo, only with a lighthouse instead of a skinny, smiling man.

Wow! Not only do I wish my photos came out this great, I wish I came up with an idea like this! When I first saw this post, I assumed the photos were going to be taken from the same position every time. This idea of not always having just the light house in the frame.
Thanks for sharing! This inspires me to think outside the box when I experiment with my photography.
