The City of Samba

Here’s your latest city tilt shift video. This one is from Rio de Janeiro and is called “Tilt Shift Samba.” It includes various scenes from Carnival. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here. h/t Randy Simes.

In bonus Rio coverage, the NYT also did a long story on the operations center that enables all city services and conditions to be monitored from a single control room similar to a Network Operations Center. It’s worth a look.

    I’ve been here. It’s more gorgeous than it appears in this shifted video. I haven’t seen Carnaval, though.
