I Want Everyday to be More Simple
> <center>"It may be a trap for the photographer to think that his best photos are the ones that are harder to capture."</center>

<center> My city scenes</center>


**That phrase was a "slap on my face",I thought that the best photos I photographed were the most difficult to capture. That photo which took me hours to find the "decisive moment" to occur, that picture that I stayed on top of some tree to take, the one I was under a storm or under a 40 degree sun, but no. Doing a comparison between the photos I photographed looking at the viewfinder of the camera and facing a thousand difficulties to capture it and those photos where I clicked the camera shutter, without looking through the viewfinder of the camera, the ones I photographed without commitment are much better**.

<center>This is a cart of recycled materials, the tool of work and the livelihood of many people in an underdeveloped country like my Brazil. At that time it is with cardboard, where it is taken for sale and the cents earned is for many its wealth.</center>

**It's like I said it once here in a post that sometimes, or often, the photo just happens. Today I understand that I don't need to do crazy experiments to capture a good photo. The composition, the light and the framing for me is enough, and this also applies to editing my photos. I usually don't use millions of filters to edit my photo. Minimal adjustments in brightness, contrast and saturation it's great. If I want a slightly different photo, on my camera I have some functions where it automatically adds filters like black and white and HDR which are my favorites and the ones I use most**.

<center>Late afternoon in the Bridges</center>

I believe that in photography and especially in today's digital age of image with so many manipulation programs, who dares to be simple, speaking the truth with his photos is king.

I am not at all an expert in photography. I admire the work of those who perform it, like yours. But as a simple spectator. I think the best photo is the one that speaks for itself. You do not need any fancy filter. There are photos that they make you feel things. Your photo of the cart of recycled materials, is that kind of photos. That photo speak .

I think being simple is a way of living. When one learns to enjoy the simplicity of things, one lives better. And if you live simple, your photos can do wonders valuing the simplicity of day to day.

cheers my friend! Greetings from Argentina.

Although I love taking pictures of things that catch my eye, I don't really consider myself "a photographer." That said, some of my best shots have been more or less "accidental," where some small element entered the picture and made it much better than I had originally thought.
