Photographer's Note

Here I capture a nice moment. The old guys friends walking and talking a lot on this famous street of Curitiba center. I really like to capture this moment, I'll in a near future made another version of the scene more close and in B&W.

Here we are in front of Avenida Palace at the Avenue Luiz Xavier. Luiz Xavier was the first elected mayor of Curitiba and he was extremely popular and accessible.

Under his administration, Luiz Xavier has endowed Curitiba with paving, gardening and made an important contribution to the development of water services and sanitation. He ordered the alignment of XV de Novembro street and Osorio Square, transforming a moor into an usable and integrated space. At this spot, the road became wider, thus unintentionally; he had created the shortest avenue in the world.

His name was given to the avenue in 1954 after death of Getulio Vargas president.
