Life is ephemeral

A poem by Mário Quintana (Brazilian poet; 1906-1994).

“Suddenly everything is getting so simple that it scares …
We are losing our needs, reducing our baggage …
The opinion of others, are really of others, and even if they are about us, it does not matter …
Let’s give up the certainties, because we are not sure of anything …
And, that does not make any difference …
We stop judging, because there is no right or wrong, but the life that each one has chosen to experience …
Finally we understand that all that matters is to have peace and quiet, to live without fear, to do what makes the heart happy at that moment …
And only that!”
by Mário Quintana.

Mario Quintana Poesia

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.
