Credit your creative artistic evolution

For me there is no separation between photography and life. Both go hand in hand. Parodying the great Brazilian poet Ferreira Gullar (“art exists because life is not enough”) I would say that “photography exists because life is not enough”.

Even on days when you don’t feel so inspired photography can enhance your day. Just before you open your camera’s diaphragm, open your head, your mind. Pleasant surprises always come to you.

Photographs: tree trunks of cut trees on the University of São Paulo campus at São Carlos (SP Brasil; the city where I live). These were very old trees that the university administration decided to cut them down to avoid risk to people.

These shots were made with my little Lumix LX100II using the dynamic monochrome setting. Shots were post processed.

Cascade of lights

Cascade of lights in the skies of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil.
It is not all day that you see such a sky. As I’m always with my little Lumix LX100II camera on board, everything I needed to do is look at the skies for this great sunset.
I live in southeastern Brazil and we are in the beginning of winter … a very mild winter, I must say, with pleasant temperatures. It only bothers the low atmospheric humidity of this time.
