Mas que Nada

Latest picture on my screen saver 2013-02-06: art director Eric Gilbert presents the photos that he actually uses as screen savers (and that he has actually shot, also). Enjoy!

Brazil over Daytona… Mas que Nada… No way, indeed…

Who could have bet on a photo shot at sunset of a Ferrari 458 proudly sporting a Brazilian flag, racing full speed on the high banks of Daytona under the (more or less) watchful eyes of the RV crowd. In many different ways, I really do believe there is a magic in this scene.

For one thing, it captures the essence of Daytona: there is only one place in the world that this photo could have been shot and it's Daytona - I always enjoy photos that are 'track specific'. And even though Daytona is not the best looking track around, it does have some nice features and it's just a matter of good timing to get them right. This photo is also very colorful, another element that I enjoy. To get my (very short) attention, a scene definitely has to be full of bright colors. This one has them.
