textures for pleasure and grace in photography

I am crazy about textures on the walls of the houses I see on the street – usually from older and often very degraded houses.

But, these times of covid-19 have been the opportunity to be able to walk safely through several small urban forests in my neighborhood in the city where I live. And, I find textures on the tree trunks, on their barks that are full of rich textures.

Below I show some photos I took in a session yesterday.
Hope you like it!

Please note: the tree is a Libidibia ferrea, formerly Caesalpinia ferrea, and commonly known as ‘pau ferro’Brazilian ironwood, ‘morado’, or leopard tree, is a tree found in Brazil and Bolivia.

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.
