Champions or Nothing!

Champions or Nothing!

To fully understand this post you should see a spectacular movie from Paolo Villaggio (check it out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lohfp_XenDc; minute 1:54). Our approach to the UK culture started from the right place: the pub. Apart from the beer counter, the king of every serious pub is the snooker pool! Snooker is probably the most difficult […]

London won’t forget – Iconic UK 221911-02

Nice trip to London for our Birthdays. Although I am not a big-city person, I admit that London’s compelling charm is hard to resist… Moving around easily and finding dozens of interesting things to do, no need to plan in advance, is another perk that I rarerly found elsewhere. And then there are London people: […]

It’s just a matter of waiting for the right time of the day, when the sun trickles in…

Soul Reader

Soul Reader

Both Marta and I agree on Augustina’s power. At times, it feels like she can read your mind and soul. After all, cats’ genetic evolution in the past 5 thousand years was almost zero: with this in mind, we don’t have doubts – Augustina comes directly from the pyramids. If you want to see Marta’sinterpretation […]

Happy Saudi National Day!

Happy Saudi National Day!

Dedicated to all our Saudi friends and to all our friends who we met in Saudi Arabia, this picture was taken in Al Jubail on the 23rd of September 2016. Marta and I were walking on the corniche, enjoying the view of hundreds of happy young men and women celebrating their Country. As it happens […]

Iconic UK is a new project that I started in 2021: it features those pictures that, more than others, tell the story of our everyday UK life. Currently, there are 22 pictures and potentially a thousand more that I still need to process: it’s an ongoing project that will evolve, and change perspective with time, […]

Who you are with is all that matters

From my photo collection ‘Iconic USA’, back in the old days when walking inside a bar with a mask on your face would cause the police to have a talk with you… Carnival 2020 in Galveston, TX.

Preparing the 2021 List of Good Things…

This is just a placeholder for a post yet to come: as we are slowing down and approaching the end of 2021, it’s time to explore the year backward, looking for the many changes ad positive things that are now part of our lives. We won’t let the negativity drag us down, because there’s plenty […]

The restaurants in the area are becoming familiar with my tastes. The weekend is approaching: nothing better than a beer and some comfort food to properly close the week.

Street Photography (very British)

Street Photography (very British)

The first pictures taken in the streets of Wakefield, Horbury and Leeds, clearly belong to a very specific part of Europe (yes, I consider UK still Europe…). More than anywhere else I think that black and white is the way to go for iconic British Street Photos. So be it – camera, batteries and prime […]

Let’s move to West Yorkshire!

Let’s move to West Yorkshire!

Our new home since December 2020 is the very green, very British and very full of history…. West Yorkshire!!! Our adventure in UK starts from Wakefield, a rather big city, 20 minutes from the more famous Leeds. We’ve got a temporary accommodation, just a few minutes walking from my Site. It’s full COVID time and […]

God Bless America…

God Bless America…

I’ve been postponing this last post from Texas for 8 months now. Always looking for the right picture, the meaningful one before moving on following the story of our adventures towards another Country, City, Continent!! Well, apparently, I can’t find no picture that fulfills this ‘critical’ role, none that is meaningful enough. Possibly, I will […]
