What a great challenge…Life is happening in the Streets. That’s the subject i prefer to capture. The true moments are all there… I’ll post some stuff and explain a bit:

 

This first shot was in a protest here in São Paulo, Brasil. A Very patriotic time to be in the streets of the big city…

Now another aspect of it. A day of heavy rain mixed with poor street planning. Water all over and people risking by walking in the middle of the street…

I have a friend that used to say she would never have a kid. “Nothing as irritating as a kid screaming by your side on the airplane” she used to say. I tried to understand how someone choose to not have a kid. I really think it’s natural to want to have children. The spark in the eyes of a new father is undescrideable. After having babies new parents can stay months with no sleep and still be happy about it. They always say: “You will only understand when you have one”. Well… i’m planning on having one next year so i’m paying more attention than ever on parents of babies. I’m starting to learn that i hate mothers that go out to run with their babies on carriers. I’m learning that i hate mothers that go dining after eleven at night bringing babies with them. I’m learning that it’s not the babies falt that the scream. Well that i already knew. It’s the parents falt. Why bring a baby with six months to an international flight? Why bringing a baby to Disneyland? It’s too early for the baby to enjoy. The parents are just using the babies as excuse. So if i’m having a baby i gotta understand something my parents and most parents from the seventies never understood. You have to give up a lot. You can’t just have a baby and continue travelling and going out and working and being away all the time. Leaving the kids with the nanny is not an everyday thing. You gotta have time for your kids. But then i really get scared because i don’t have a clue if i’m good as a parent. I don’t know even if i can hold a baby. Anyway i’ll do it and i’m only sure of one thing: I’ll love him and i’ll rase him and i’ll prepare him to the world and eventually he will leave me. But that’s life!

Sometimes i wonder why most musics i have in my ipod are sung by women . I mean at least three quarters. I think the reason for this is the same as the one that makes me paint and photograph. My need to consume art in every form and to give it back with all forms of expression. There is a fascination for women in it’s spiritual essence. You can say it’s something about my mother. Maybe it is but we can discuss a little bit further. As for Us men i can say we are not very hot these days. Or ever. Women always used their power. Men are not smart enough to do that. We can start by the basics. Little girls learn they have to preserve their treasures for princes. Little boys learn that is their obligation to be always ready to please. Men don’t have “headaches” but women do. They decide when, where and how. They invented the first product display of the modern era. The high heels. They can have babies. Men can’t. But for some reason men dominated most of the important positions in this world since the beginning and i think that’s not just because man can be stronger. There was i time when being stronger would make the difference. But not today. Today the most important jobs and positions are occupied by the skills of the brain and less by the physical ones. I think the only reason men are not overwhelmed by women is because we are conceived and bred by women and motherhood is stronger than any other relation between humans. There is a clue. It’s part of the reason for my fascination in what makes women the way they are. The word unconditional has its roots on the feminine. Love has it’s roots on the feminine and women feeds love much more than men. They design passion. They welcome us into their bodies and even their orgasms are more intelligent than ours. I gotta say thanks god they’re our mother!!!
