The slightly yellow and warm waters of the Paraná River (27° 16 ’09 “S, 58° 14′ 38” W), just south of beloved South America, bathe a region that is home to incredibly beautiful and important aquatic ecosystems (riverine and wetlands) for the ecology of many species of terrestrial and aquatic animals and plants of the world.Continue reading “Diary of a trip”
Much has already been written and photographed on hand gestures.
In this post I show some photos that I have done in this theme.
In some cases the photography gains dynamism, which makes it more attractive and gives it a touch of mystery too.
To fight against boredom in photography, macro photography can be fun.
These photos were made with my Nikon D500 + micro Nikkor 40mm f/2.8.
This is about “how was my day on 18Jan2018”.
*** Fuels were much cheaper and this man was preparing to cross Av São Carlos exactly at 09:59 … I had a cup of a nice coffee at Dona Julia’s coffee…
*** I loaded my car with gas exactly at 10:16 …
*** In my home town…
Upset at not knowing what to photograph? Cannot get motivated to shoot your own city?
Get out of this doldrums and feet on the street !!!
Practice cures inertia !!!
“All things must past,” as old Beattle, George Harrison, has already said, who has already ‘traveled the other way’ as the wise Rolando Boldrin says.
And old Beattle’s song says,
…. ‘sunrise does not last all morning’ ….
…. ‘a cloudburst does not last all day’ ….
and times go by … life goes by …
To think about:
“What shall we use to fill the empty spaces?
Where the waves of hunger roar?
Shall we set out across this sea of faces
In search of more and more applause?
Shall we buy a new guitar?
Shall we drive a more powerful car? ”
of “Empty Spaces” by Roger Waters
“Photography suits the temper of this age – of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who quickly and decisively acts decisively, accurately. “- Edward Weston
“Photography is great if you want to make art, instantly. To be decisive, without the delays of painting “- Eric kim
Edward Weston’s phrase, pinched beforehand, ‘represents an unique way of seeing photography as a genuine form of art expression‘ that is nowadays produced (almost) instantly.Continue reading “Seeing beauty in the ordinary and mundane (featured image: edward weston – toilet, 1951)”
“The camera sees more than the eye, so why not make use of it?” – Edward Weston
“The fun thing about photography— augmenting our vision and reality” – Eric Kim
Wise words from Weston and Kim.
Thinking seriously about them, I reviewed these three photographs I made a long time ago.Continue reading ““The camera sees more than the eye, so why not make use of it?” – Edward Weston”

“I give respect to the unimportant things and unimportant beings. I appreciate bugs more than planes.
I value the speed of the turtles more than the speed of the missiles.
I have this delay of birth in me. I was equipped to be like birds.
I have plenty to be happy about it. My backyard is greater than the world.”
(poem called ‘Respect’ by Manoel de Barros)
