If you are a photographer and like colors, why not color photography ?

Each day I am more convinced that we should not label our photography …. assign it to one or more genre. This is because photography is photography, nothing more than this.What if you like the various “genres” out there that are attributed to photography, why not photograph within these various “genres”? What keeps us from doing this?

These are tough questions I know, but I have a feeling about this:
It is that most of the time we do not photograph for ourselves, for our own satifaction in the first place. We are almost always in this stupid quest to satisfy others with our photography. We try hard to attribute “genres” to the photograph we make – and that we love so much – much more to satisfy others than to satisfy ourselves.

If you have read this post to this point, a word about this small sequence of photos: these are roofs, mountains and the skies of a small city in the interior of the state of “Minas Gerais”, Southeast of Brazil, called “Carmo do Rio Claro”.

I hope you enjoyed the photos and the story behind them.

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.
