Snack out the weekend

Snack out the weekend

February 11, 2019

Cold Saturday here in Houston: on week-ends we usually like to skip lunch but now we need something to keep us alive before dinner. We try Panera: never been there before and I heard of it just from some friends stories. I bring in my Fuji X-T1 along with the resurrected Fujinon 35mm f/2. A must-have […]

Peace and Love

January 31, 2019

Thanks to ‘FunNight Photography Houston’ for organizing the #peaceandlove photoshoot in Houston’ East End Graffiti Park. We went there with almost no idea or previous experience and we did not know the organizers either (yes, Marta&Ruggero style!). As we parked the car it was immediately clear that that place had something ‘special’. Graffiti Park is […]

New Orleans!

New Orleans!

December 11, 2018

New trip on the road since quite some time: the destination is New Orleans and it comes 6 months after our last week-end escape to San Antonio at the end of April. We choose this date to avoid the crowd and be able to see this magic city in a more private and calm mood. […]

Grey Sunday turns to black and white

Grey Sunday turns to black and white

Short weekend and both of us with so many things to do and to take care of….this Sunday just did not start with the right sprint. It’s not Houston’s fault: fantastic sunny and warm day (is this December for real??). Some days things are just more difficult to get lined-up. We headed out to have […]

Lone star Bike Rally 2018 – Part 2

November 27, 2018

Time now for some characters from the Lone star Bike Rally 2018: in the Part 1 that we met in Galveston during a spectacular sunny day. Plenty of custom bikes, chromed rims and tough-looking riders who traveled from all around Texas for this edition of the rally. Excellent opportunity to test our self-confidence: approach some […]

September’s gone – Houston’s Strong

September’s gone – Houston’s Strong

November 5, 2018

Temperatures dropped 40 degrees in a couple of weeks meaning that the hurricane season is over. September’s gone (also October!) and this year no harm to Houston: Harvey’s memory still hurts but ‘HoustonStrong‘ is not just another slogan, it’s the way Texans live their lives. I chose this picture as a symbol of strength: it […]
