“But the harshness of his steely glare was compensated by the softness of his cotton gloves,
so that, as he approached Swann, he seemed to be exhibiting
at once an utter contempt for his person and the most tender regard for his hat.”
― Marcel Proust, Swann's Way

The moment we pulled up in front of her apartment she had the door open.
She turned to me with the long, elegant, mournful face of her Puritan ancestors and held out her hand.
'It's been fun,' she said.'Yes,' I said, taking her hand. She was wearing gloves."

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. - C. S. Lewis

Street photography and telephoto lens Community Week
There is no “perfect” focal length for Street Photography
Many photographers are not a fan of using telephoto lenses in street photography. Generally they find telephoto lenses too impersonal, without the sense of intimacy that lenses with  focal lengths of 28mm-55mm (35mm and 50mm in particular) produce. The believe that these shorter focal lengths force you to get closer to your subject (sharing their human condition and feeling their environment).
However, if you analyze  the works of Leiter, whose street photography is shot with a relatively long lens you have to change your mind: he compresses his scenes creating a peculiar geometric vision
Here's what Leiter responds to Dean Brierly
D.B.: Many of your images have a compressed spatial perspective.

Selfie - Street Ethnography -[The massification has undergone an irremediable transformation:
the collective individualism has transformed the society into a global mosaic.

“I always think about what it means to wear eyeglasses. When you get used to glasses you don't know how far you could really see. I think about all the people before eyeglasses were invented. It must have been weird because everyone was seeing in different ways according to how bad their eyes were. Now, eyeglasses standardize everyone's vision to 20-20. That's an example of everyone becoming more alike. Everyone could be seeing at different levels if it weren't for glasses.”
― Andy Warhol

"DECISIVE MOMENT - JUXTAPOSITION"

American culture is probably the least Christian culture that we've ever had because it is so materialistic and it's so full of lies.
The whole advertising world is just, it's just intertwined with lies, appealing to the worst of the instincts we have.

'Cause I'm not a real street photographer: yesterday, as I was waiting for someone, with my nikon hanging around my neck, I started to take a look around. And that's how I got it. I'm a photographer of the wait. I don't look for shots. I find them in the pauses. That's why I love to take pictures in the subway, in bars: because I wait for the right shot, I don't look for it. All in all, it perfectly fits with my being. I'm motionless, it's life that changes my colour, my age. -Batsceba Hardy

perché non sono una vera fotografa di strada: ieri, aspettando una persona, con la mia nikon al collo, ho cominciato a guardarmi attorno. ed è così che ho capito. io sono una fotografa dell'attesa. non cerco gli scatti. li trovo nelle pause. per questo amo fotografare nella metropolitana, nei bar: perché aspetto lo scatto, non lo cerco. ma in fondo combacia perfettamente con il mio essere. io sono immobile, è la vita che mi trasforma, colora, invecchia. - Batsceba Hardy

soundtrack: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iucRHs…

I've stopped thinking. and i'm dumb waiting for the Great Mystery hug. I've been looking for it wandering about the streets in a city that doesn't belong to me, I've been looking for it letting water drop on me to shut my pain up. yet i've just met the other's rage and i've been annihilated. like i was annihilated as a child before someone raising their voice, a slap in the face i didn't understand. i'm not cut out for life. i don't have nails. i always expect understanding, explanations, love. but i can't change. and i'll keep on roaming with my disability to live, listening to the distant echo of the Great Mystery which will ease my pain. i don't know how to live but i know how to love. and i'll keep on walking trying not to to tread on the ant crossing my path.

Born. Raised. Some day dead




My dedication to photography is strong, mostly of the time. So strong that I don`t know what I do sometimes. A year ago, I started to get pain problems with my neck and right shoulder. Part of the problem was that I carried my photo gear almost all the time. So I took a decision to get a compact camera instead of my microfourthird system. Said and done. Well....it worked for two months, before I bought a dslr with two kit lenses. So far so good. The neck hurt a bit, but ok. So I got two more heavy lenses. Now it´s a problem. Constant pain. The photo quality is very nice, but my brain doesn`t seem to work so nice....
