The quest for the cure of inertia in photography

This is about “how was my day on 18Jan2018”.

*** Fuels were much cheaper and this man was preparing to cross Av São Carlos exactly at 09:59 … I had a cup of a nice coffee at Dona Julia’s coffee…
*** I loaded my car with gas exactly at 10:16 …

*** In my home town…

Upset at not knowing what to photograph? Cannot get motivated to shoot your own city?
Get out of this doldrums and feet on the street !!!
Practice cures inertia !!!


“All things must past,” as old Beattle, George Harrison, has already said, who has already ‘traveled the other way’ as the wise Rolando Boldrin says.

And old Beattle’s song says,
…. ‘sunrise does not last all morning’ ….
…. ‘a cloudburst does not last all day’ ….
and times go by … life goes by …

To think about:
“What shall we use to fill the empty spaces?
Where the waves of hunger roar?
Shall we set out across this sea of faces
In search of more and more applause?
Shall we buy a new guitar?
Shall we drive a more powerful car? ”

of “Empty Spaces” by Roger Waters

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
