The strenght of geometry and colors in photography

Detail of mosaic by Bassano Vaccarini at Mercadão de Ribeirão Preto, SP-Brazil. Bassano Vaccarini (Milan, Italy 1917-Altinópolis, SP 2002) was an Italian naturalized Brazilian writer, painter, teacher, set designer, costume designer and filmmaker.

This wonderful work at Mercadão de Ribeirão has an impressive size larger than the detail of my photo that I am publishing as an example of the geometrical strength in photography. I also perceive colors, in this case, as forms, giving this photograph three-dimensionality. Shadow & light also helps enormously to creat this three-dimensionality sense.

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.
