Photographer's Note

Another view of my job facing sunset. This time the sun was going down above the municipal hospital, curiously I was born in a timber house at side of this building many decades before it was built.One of the worst aspects of pandemic in my town was the fact our only hospital was closed for restoration and we were using a first-aid post when the pandemic arrived and city hall was even obligated to use a ball-room as a provisional hospital for covid-19 patients in the worst days.
In the image you can see a black vulture above the hospital and in the wires a dove and some swallows. You can see plants growing in the wires too. Last September had the hottest days of our history with temperatures we never had seen as 40 Celsius.

Mais uma vista da porta do meu trabalho olhando o sol poente. Desta vez o sol estava logo acima das paredes do hospital municipal, curiosamente eu nasci numa casa de madeira ao lado do hospital muitas décadas antes dele ser construído. Uma das partes mais difíceis para nós na pandemia foi o fato de que o nosso único hospital passava por reformas e estava fechado e tiveram que usar um posto de saúde e nos momentos mais difíceis, usar um clube como hospital de campanha.
Na foto temos um urubu, uma rolinha e andorinhas nos fios bem como essas plantas nativas que crescem nos fios. O setembro do ano passado teve os dias mais quentes de nossa história, alcançando temperaturas que nunca havíamos visto, chegando aos 40 graus.
