These are my 20 favorites pictures from my photostream...

I really love these pics, because they're really means something for me...

It's not easy to choose between more than 3100 photos, but I'm trying...

***************** TOP 3 ****************

1- Andresa at the Arno River, Florence * I think this one is my favorite picture because I love the light and the smile...And maybe cause it's for me the first time I felt myself a photographer..

Everybody needs a best friend, right?

2- The man of the street * Simply one of the best subjects on my photostream.. I love this, I printed it, I show it everytime I can for my friends...

The man of the Street - 2

3- Myself / Fade 2 Black * A dark period of my life before the revolution, I love this shot because it is full of emotion and feeling exactly as I wanted when I made it..

Fade to Black

**************** TOP 10 ****************

4- My Best One * Ipatinga, Brazil, Parque Ipanema.. in one of my best moment of the last years.. on vacation in my hometown. I think this is a great shot.. the light, the colors, everything is amazing in this shot.

My Best one...

5- Aeroporto di Madrid, going to Brazil on vacation...* I love it because it makes me dream..

Private Jet... maybe one day... A Dream

6- It's time to play - Ipatinga/Brazil * I always wanted to make Soccer Pictures and in Brazil is so easy to make nice shots like this, futebol is everywhere there..

It's time to play...

7- Symbolic light of life * I remember: I was alone at home, so sad and desperate when I turn of all the lights, took a lantern, the tripod and an egg to composite this shot that represents my desire of life, my will to live... and maybe reborn... A great Shot

Symbolic light of life

8- Paula and the Strawberry * On the train, me and Paula, we were eating some strawberries when I had this idea... when I make the shot I imagine the cut-out and the post-production exactly as we can see here.. An interesting shot..

Really excellent work, everytime I pick a favourite I see another and then can't decide. What I love about your photos is the lighting is often absolutely gorgeous and the composition original and fresh.
If I had to pick one it would probably be No.12 just for the wonderful composition and great use of colour.

One day we were at home, she was studying and I was reading the IKEA cataloghe when I had the idea to use this lamp to take a picture using the only light spot.. something mistic and romantic..

Paula is always ready to make photos so..she help me so much in this..

in the darkness


Always with Paula, I started a Series about Eve (EVA) and the apple, first sin and things like that.. and this is one of the first try about it.. a close-up portrait with the Apple... everything started here..

My Personal Eve (The Sin)

And following the series.. I arrived in this shot,,, for me it represents what I did want for this idea.. I love it.

Eve (Final Version) (Apple included)


What can I say.. this shot shows what I am.. Ironic and self-concentrated hhahaha
This series was a creation exercises about real life, my favorite theme.
