Man observes the oceanic horizon of São Conrado beach, Rio de Janeiro. April 2018.
Some more images that I did this week during the trip to the port of Rio de Janeiro. The sky with these clouds gives the landscape a special drama; the late afternoon light just crowned the moment, making one of the most beautiful photographic sessions I’ve done in recent months. I wish I had more time to visit picturesque places and witness late afternoon like this more often.
Just another day over here. I took this shot this afternoon. It’s being fun to have my camera always with me. I go to the streets looking for some new gaze into the ordinary things. The same old story…this thing to find something new among ordinary… I mean, It is an old story of photography, but everyone see a different thing every moment. That is why photography is so special.
I love landscape photography, specially the one that is in the mountains. Wild places really is a thing that has a power in my imagination. I am saying that because at the current moment of my life I have to stay in the city. There’s no possibility right now that I can just go with my backpack and tent, start a journey to places like Patagonia or Peruvian Andes, only to mention two places that I consider to visit in an abstract future. So, I have the seascape – the completely opposite object of my intro – but is what I have to practice exposure, framing, colours and other photography elements.
I do not really see myself as an artist. I am like a promise that is never fulfilled. Someone is always in the learning stage. This week I might print this landscape here from Rio de Janeiro. Just to remember that this city has beautiful curves when we look only for them … good week to all!
Happy to be back posting here on the blog. I was absent last month but now I want to slowly resume my blog posts here. In recent days I have discovered how cool it is to photograph clouds. They can acquire many artistic forms and invoke a strong abstraction. Ascend
When I decided to launch this blog, I wanted to make it a free space to express and practice of my photography. It’s a way of sharing my visual research, so that, over time, I can become a better photographer.
This blog is in its bengining, and I think this practice will include banal photographs too, like these ones I put in this post. Indeed, depending on who looks, such images do not means much, or nothing more than the simple representation of everyday scenes or places. It’s just a look, just a record. Both, anyone, but it is also possible that no one sees beauty in its banal scenes.
But as long as there is the possibility that only one person in the whole world can appreciate beauty in anything, it would have been worthwhile to be there and record the moment, even if it is nothing. I am here trying to justify the unjustifiable; are just images, nothing more, and the minimal practice of photography.
