Dive at Barra
Porto Da Barra is one of the more well known beaches in Salvador, Brazil, and on a daily basis is filled with both locals and tourists alike. The beach is set within a bay and contains a break-wall that keeps the water calm and great for swimming. This break-wall is a very popular place to dive into the water and is typically filled with people.

On this particular afternoon, I spent hours on the beach people-watching and relaxing. Eventually the crowd dissipated as evening fell. Only one individual remained on the break-wall and I enjoyed watching him repeatedly practice his dives. I could imagine the rush of adrenaline as he launched himself off the wall into the water. I snapped a few photos from the beach and was invigorated when I discovered that I had captured this moment in time.
