On the Light, again

On the Light, again. Another post inspired by the light, by its effect on the environment and ultimately on ourselves and our feelings and mood

Shoot RAW!

Shoot RAW!

I recently read an invite to shoot with purpose, to go beyond the technical aspect of the picture and capture what really matters. The concept is not new and always actual: it might take the shape of a contrast between our gear and our soul to eventually break free from fake constraints or have a […]

Snack out the weekend

Snack out the weekend

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.

I chose this picture as a symbol of strength: it […]

Frida’s day – street photography session

Frida’s day – street photography session

The weekend has been planned by Marta: her choice is hard for me to accept but I don’t have alternatives. Unfortunately she found a couple of internet sites about Houston activities, with particular emphasis on the weekends: this means good-bye to the relaxing sofa and welcome to… Frida’s day in Houston! Of course the focus […]
