Why street photography is worth it

Let me express some strong feelings that I have for street photography and, especially, for street color portraits.

The streets … always the streets … the streets always surprise a street photographer positively … they are the motivation and source of inspiration for a street photographer … they never abandon you … they always have something to offer you … just be there … always be there … regardless of your mood … regardless if it’s raining or the sun is shining … just be there with any camera … only invoke your instinct as a street photographer … as a hunter … or, if you prefer, as an observer … but, be happy !!!

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.
