Photographing summer between heatwaves and terrifying thunderstorms, they are typical of northern Italy, but that doesn’t mean that I am used to them. 😳 Sometimes they are accompanied by hail and strong winds. The ensuing damages are remarkable on crops and wine production expectations. Luckily it does happen often at night time, leaving the morning […]
As said before I was looking for a new camera (Camera Shopping), and I was also up for a trip to New York, and when in New York the best place to buy a new camera is B&H. (B&H Photo Video – Electronics and Camera Store, located at 420 Ninth Avenue at the intersection with […]
I am looking for a new camera and the first one to know is Facebook. 😁 I need to replace my old Canon, one because it is not working properly anymore, and two–and probably because of–I’m not using it as often as it weights too much on my shoulder, hence I often opt to take […]
Venice is a hot destination, but if you live near-by the one thing you want to do is to avoid Venice in summer, especially after schools close. What to do then? Well the islands on the laguna are the alternative. Burano is also relatively busy, and if you visit for the first time you may […]
I’m talking about summer! Summer is for savoring and experiencing. But summer is also for the eyes. It means long days, more light, more outdoors. In summer I love to take pictures of all the bounty that is given to us by this generous season. The blooms, the fruits, and vegetables. I do feel healthier […]
Snapshots of the Tuscan countryside with an iPhone. This is the area of Montepulciano, and we can see the wineries lined up. Approaching Orvieto now.
Celebrating Spring When winter dies slowly in the spring, on the evenings of those beautiful clear days, happy, without wind, on which windows are keep wide open for the first few times and flower pots are brought on balcomies, cities offer one show kind and full of joy and poetry. Walking along the streets you […]
Venice is narrow. It has many angles, profiles, perspective, and framework. Always different and fascinating.
I looked back at my pictures in 2018, and these are the ones I choose as more representative of my year. Maybe not the best I took, but the ones that had more feelings in retrospection. For me at least. January, February, March, and April May, June, July, and August September, October, November, December Looking […]
I love to explore Instagram for ideas, trends, and good photographs to admire and be inspired by. Instagram provides tons of good example, if you know where to look. I’m quite selective in what to follow. No selfies! No nonsense! I found the #ihavethisthingfor on various subjects that I like. My number one favorite is […]
Finally the Fall is here. Two days of heavy rain and a significant drop in temperatures and we are in Fall. The leaves are yellowing and falling. We are changing the clothing, adding blankets to our beds, and storing the sandals for next year. A rainy fall day offers so many photo-ops. It is just […]
Fall is not coming this year. I was earnestly expecting a month of full colors, golden leaves, and the various shades of red, yellow, purple, black, orange, pink, magenta, blue and brown so typical of the Fall season. Instead the leaves are sticking to the trees for their dear life. Up to last week the trees were still green, the temperatures are around 65F, and there are […]
