Hands that paint, sculpt and burn

I have always been fascinated by the manual work of those people who daily, 30 days a month, 365 days a year are hard, but tenderly with their hands and arms.

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.

Street colors

You only realize how many colors there are on the city streets when you photograph the streets of the city in color.
It seems kind of obvious, but it’s the pure reality.
This series of photos has no post processing whatsoever and reveals the colors of the streets in the city.
I liked the result so much and decided to post.
Ready. Posted !!!

Contrasting colors and textures of cities

I’ve always liked simple records of city streets as scenes that show contrasting colors and textures and repetitive elements.
It’s as if these scenes come into my mind and get stuck there. To release them I feel this impulse to photograph them. If I do not do this, it seems they will not let me follow my walk.
