Macapá is the unique Brazilian state capital crossed by the Amazon River. After the high tide, old wooden posts become the goal of a soccer field popularly known as “foot-mud”. The water level goes down, the game begins. It rises, the game is over. The time of the watch has no sense. The rain and the tide offer us multiple shades. Between 3pm and 7pm the tide comes down and colors vibrate, an unique phenomenon in Amapá.
