No fishing, only photos

No fishing, only photos

Kelby’s photowalk 2019 in Galveston gifted us a great sunset in a pleasant Texan evening well worth the few miles. We met with the guys from BAPC (Bay Area Photo Club) and joined the stroll: Galveston knows how to entertain tourists and locals and we felt more on a vacation than just at the start […]

For the #MondayWindow fans, this picture taken in the beautiful Galveston while taking part to the Scott Kelby’s 2019 photo walk. I liked the contrast of the two buildings’ style while the incoming sunset painted a nice orange and blue palette. Taken with Canon 5d Mark III, 24-105 f/4. Post pro in Luminar3.

Beautiful Uglies

Beautiful Uglies

Graceless, ugly and horrible when looked too closely, so close that every detail is revealed. Sometimes it’s better to hold back, refrain from digging too much, enjoy the big picture. Bath in the radiant grace of the whole, behold from afar, position yourself beyond the misery of the tiny detail.

There’s a subtle and not negligible psychological difference between seeing a wild animal in a reserve, park or at the zoo and stumbling upon it while jogging down the street, a few meters from home. Now when the wild animal at issue is a rather ‘biting’ one such as this gator, one should at least […]

Got some tickets for the Astros last week-end when the home team played Seattle in a very slow game ended 2-1 for Houston. We chose the Saturday game to leave the Sunday for home-relax: a pity because the very next day the score was 21 (!!) to 1. Anyway, below our lessons learned from our […]

Truly US – Miller’s Cafe’ in Clear Lake

September 8, 2019

Sunday morning, we are wandering around Clear Lake and eventually ended up trying Miller Cafe’: I went in just for a drink but could not resist eating a decently sized grilled ham and cheese sandwich. When I say ‘decently sized’ I mean the equivalent of an adult’s full meal. Man, that sandwich was good! Also […]

Back to the Park – Cool Edits and new Software

Back to the Park – Cool Edits and new Software

We are back to the US after a vacation that was just too short. Early July in Italy was great and late July in Houston is incredibly mild, very pleasant especially in the evening. This won’t last and the triple digit will be back soon. Better I take the camera for a quick tour just […]

Crossroad of people, stories, memories and lives. Promises made, plans set up in the sand, washed away by a wave, swepet out by the fate, erased by the time. All pictures: Fuji XT-2 , Fujinon 56mm f/1.2

This is the last weekend before going back to Italy on vacation: for the next two days we have no plans whatsoever so I will challenge myself with an extreme street hunt. It will be street photography weekend: I do not know what the results will be but I will post the shots. Let’s get […]
