fragmentos dos últimos meses

Hello everybody!
explaining the pictures: The B/W photo showing those three guys is a class of photography i was giving two weeks ago. The next image shows me crunching flower to make photography with it. The oter one (where I'm reading Anselm Kiefer's book) shows my brother and Nicole, a good friend of mine. The other where there's some people next to the kietsch painting looking like the school of Athens is the class where i had (along with Shin) the best classes of the fine arts graduation. The first one shows Marcela, a person i know for a long time and one of my closest friend...

um percurso

I was wondering "how can I describe the last weeks (maybe months) in words?" It's difficult as well to express the differences between NOW and the previous months; after all I'm more or less doing the same things... but the feeling of reality changes a lot from time to time (and from person to person I'm with).
The wakening up from monday to friday is the same, as the way from my house to my job (to put it in line is: the sunny sidewalk with chairs where i wait for the orange bus; the crowded bus, full of half-sleepers; the arrival at the Rebouças Avenue; the walk through Oscar Freire Street; the crossing point in Augusta street; Santo Grão café and finally the granite-steel hall of the building where i work.)

Then starts the waiting of dusk; the time when I come back to life and activity. The way back is usually wonderfull, so that I prefer to go by walking; and it's like to be a lost water particle in the middle of a river. Paulista avenue looks so calm with it's inherent crazyness and hush individuals; in a way is the same as observe an aggitated sea. You see the violence and movement of water, but it's something placid after all.

After 30 minutes of walk I reach the mute and dark part of the way. The Mato Grosso street has some dead office buildings in one sidewalk and the cemitery on the other. There's also a homeless half-crazy old woman who waits sitting on a half-bench in a half-park. I pass by and she don't notices me (so absorbed by her waiting).

Then I reach the block where on fridays happens feira (it''s a wonderfull happening in brazil; they closes a street from the morning till 14 p.m. to sell vegetables, fruits, pastel and sugar cane juice) It's amazing to feel the smells of the people and plants that were there some hours ago; visually there's nothing there but the smell remains clear.

O minhocão, the river I see every day

The "minhocão" is a highway that crosses São Paulo's downtown connecting the west to the old city center. I always lived near it, so it was hard to notice how peculiar and "beautifull" is this urban phenomena...

Every sunday the minhocão is closed and only pedestrians and cyclists are allowed to pass by. Retired people, middle aged runners, children and homelesses add a lyrical and melancholical tone to this place...

Hello People!

Olá a todos!

Some days ago I was having a look to the photos from Porto when someting wonderful happened: I found a folder I haven't seen yet, full of Anna's photos!
It was really nice to see everybody again, and to discover that many small yet beautyfull moments were kept in images...
Then I thought that it would be cool to post these pictures on a blog and to have a way to comunicate more frequentlly (and then maybe we could try to share more things with each other...).
The blog also makes possible to show images from the every day, or just to update how we look like (I don't know why but I'm so curious about the changes that occured to everyone! Specially Anna being pregnant; this must be quite a nice process to witness...)
So, in short form, this blog is an attempt to simulate the contact we had in Porto; the feeling of being together again...
P.S. This is how I look now. The photo was taken on my bedroom last monday at 18:00.
