Friend of Towleroad Lewis Payton recently spent six weeks down in Rio and boy am I envious. I sent a few T-shirts with him and for the next few days I’ll be sharing a few of his stories and images of where those T-shirts ended up!
Lewis writes: “Rio is incredible, the most vibrant, passionate, sensual and alive city I have ever experienced. Everyone is so damned sexy! You just don’t know where to look, there is so much beauty. For a voyeuristic photographer, it makes for a dizzy time!
As you know, I was there for much needed R&R, so really didn’t want to pick up my camera this time (as much as I was inspired) but I couldn’t resist sharing [the] t-shirts with a few new pals. If these snapshots don’t get you on the next plane to Rio, I don’t know what will…
Cesar is a gogo star at the popular Copacabana nightclub Le Boy and a truly lovely guy. We met on the beach and when he found out I was a photographer he asked if I’d take a few shots of him. With that body, who was I to refuse?!”
