Finding (small) needles in the haystack

There are many things, ie details, characteristics, visions, etc., of the photography that each one of us practices, something that always comes and goes on our photography, and within this sea of information that today it is possible to obtain on almost everything, INCLUDING PHOTOGRAPHY, of course, you sometimes find ‘some needles in that haystack’, like this one from Eric Kim’s blog:

“We need forgetfulness and naive optimism to continually produce new photos – the source of new creative willpower!”

Kim was talking about our quest for street photography for perfect photos and says, “No perfect street photos“. And he says that he does not care about it anymore and that his focus is on “creative productivity” because when perfection is attained there is nothing more to aspire to.

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.
