Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Photograph by Zoé Fidji
“I took this photo while the Brazilian football [soccer] team was playing for the World Cup,” writes Zoé Fidji, who took this picture and submitted it to the 2015 Traveler Photo Contest. “The beaches and streets were all deserted; everyone was watching the game. It was kind of surrealistic to see this usually crowded beach at sunset completely empty except [for] this kid who was playing in the waves.”
