“I no longer drink nearly as much as I used to but, still, my motto is Sine coffea nihil sum. Without coffee, I'm nothing.”
― Sarah Vowell

The brief story of an anonimous coffee.

    “Manliness consists not in bluff, bravado or loneliness. It consists in daring to do the right thing and facing consequences whether it is in matters social, political or other. It consists in deeds not words.”
    ― Mahatma Gandhi

    Just now I noticed I'm in the picture. Not easy to spot these "Easter eggs" on a cellphone screen under sunlight. :ello:

      “Friends are like bras, attached near your heart for support. Foes are like panties, deported, every now and then, when they get dirty.”

      I think I saw a lady building.

        Using a cellphone to take pictures is like taking classes again. You learn to see the world in a single focal length point of view, limited by the blindness of the sensor and by the lack of manual controls. It's fun though.

          Different days, same window, one week and one day apart. Two different points of view of a moody sky.

            I've taken these images including the one in the previous post in the same day. It was a beautiful afternoon. I had taken my dogs for a stroll and they ended playing with their kin. It was a lot of fun.

            “It isn't by getting out of the world that we become enlightened, but by getting into the world…by getting so tuned in that we can ride the waves of our existence and never get tossed because we become the waves.”

              I still haven't figure out a good workflow to put the photos I've taken and edited on my mobile equipment here. I currently shoot on iPhone, import and edit on VSCOcam and Autodesk Pixlr then I curate and export on iPad because of the bigger screen. It is somewhat slow and bothersome comparing to my other workflow (camera + Lightroom), but that'll have to do for now.

                Downtown Rio de Janeiro is getting too dangerous again. :disappointed:...

                Downtown Rio de Janeiro is getting too dangerous again. :disappointed: Last week, a man was stabbed four times in his back during an attempt of robbery. This is awful. It affects me in a way that I don't want to be exposed to this kind of risk while doing an activity such as photography that was supposed to bring me joy. That is why I haven't posted anything new in 11 days. :cry:

                I've been taking some mobile shots though and posted them on Instagram.
