Don’t expect any masterpieces anytime soon, just shooting whatever catches my eye while I can, without much filtering… these were taken on what was probably the last long walk with my dog for a while, as Portugal is expected to enter the state of emergency and impose a country wide lock-down tonight.
It seems like the last time I posted here was on a different lifetime… and yet it was just a week ago, how crazy is that?
I hope everyone’s staying safe at home these days, if your work allows it. In the midst of this Coronavirus pandemic, our routines are being completely shattered on a daily basis, and it can get pretty challenging to adjust so quickly.
Personally, I have to say staying home is the easiest thing for me to do… other introverts will probably relate, but it looks like we finally found an use for our “superpower”! 🙂 The toughest part is dealing with the uncertainty of it all and the constant worry with our elders.
Anyway, to keep my “photographic eye” in shape, I guess in the next coming weeks I will have to point my camera inwards, which will be a challenge in itself.
Last Saturday I had the chance to participate in a photowalk organized by Sean Tucker. If you don’t know who he is, I urge you to checkout his youtube channel and his instagram: not only he is an amazing photographer, but he also shares some very interesting photography-related contents on his youtube channel, a lot of it focused on the more philosophical side that rarely gets discussed.
I have to say when I first learned about this “instameet” I was unsure if I should go because I knew it was going to be pretty crowded and chaotic. But I’m happy I did because it was great to hear some of Sean’s thoughts in first hand and meet other like-minded street photographers.
Of course it was quite a challenge to get any interesting shots in the middle of large dozens of other photographers, but in the end it turned out better than I expected and I got a few keepers.
