15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Bird`s affections

Nature can provide moments of reflection trough very subtil contrasting situations. The leafs were totally gone, the weather was really dry at the time. And then you can see warmness and love emanating from these two little birds. I live in the city and I opted to go to the fields with a single lenses, an old manual focus, in a symbolic and empirical way of reconnect myself to the pure pleasure of shooting nature, people, places and family moments. Because I am a professional photographer, I was extremely focused only on jobs, by a long time forgetting the meaning of taking photos without the sense of obligation. So it was perfect, my first shot at these reflective times.
