Feet on the Ground by Rudnei Barbosa. Rudnei took this photo of his feet and sandals on the street. The photo’s title, suggested by the photographer himself, alludes to the Brazilian people, always dreaming, but he stresses that, to achieve your goals, you need to set aside the illusions and put your feet on the ground. Rudnei, 45, was born in São Paulo, has lived on the streets for 30 years.
