Change then lens, focus on the details – here and now. Let the time slow down, let the subject fill your eyes, free you mind and soothe your soul…

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 […]

Laura

Laura

In August 2020 Hurricane Laura brought death and mayhem to the Gulf. Unfortunately over 30 people were killed through its deadly path till the landfall in Cameron, Louisiana and over 70 deaths will be the final count. The forecast models predicted the correct landing point just a few hours before the actual touch-down (something around […]

A Special 2020 Texan Summer – Part 2

A Special 2020 Texan Summer – Part 2

Independence Day in 2020 was… well, just like any other celebration during COVID: a pale image of what it could have been under more normal circumstances. This didn’t prevent us from wandering around the Harris County looking for signs of the event to come. So ‘Big Daddy’ with his Texas Outlaw and Red Rhino Fireworks […]

A Special 2020 Texan Summer – Part 1

A Special 2020 Texan Summer – Part 1

OK, May 2020: another Summer is approaching and my Winter theory that the COVID would not stand the Texan heat is not supported by the numbers. For several reasons, none of which is of interest to this blog, my workload during the rest of the year ramped up exponentially. Add to this, the constant concern […]

365 Days Later

365 Days Later

Exactly 365 days since my last post. We were eating Blue Bell ice cream like there was no tomorrow, no idea of what the next days, weeks and months had prepared for us. At that time, it was 19 May 2020, there was not a vaccine for COVID yet, travelling to Europe was possible but […]

CoronaVoid

CoronaVoid

How things change under the effect of an adverse situation: usual urban landscapes transformed under the uncontrolled thrust of anxiety due to CoronaVirus.

Ordinary Weird: the Remake!

Ordinary Weird: the Remake!

This is another amazing photo remake of the original comic from Marta! Soon after landing in the US, we’ve immediately noticed how easy you meet people dressed up weirdly. I don’t mean when you put on the first shirt at hand just to go out 5 minutes and buy the milk, no. I mean: really […]

And the 2019 Winner Is….

And the 2019 Winner Is….

Awesome: this year my favorite picture is also the one that YOU have clicked the most. Cool: we have common tastes when it comes to photography! I chose ONE to close the 2019, a year that I will remember for several positive personal experiences and, photographically, for some longer term projects. Those projects will require […]

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. 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 […]

Lone star Bike Rally 2018 – Part 2

Lone star Bike Rally 2018 – Part 2

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 […]

Lone star Bike Rally 2018 – Part 1

Lone star Bike Rally 2018 – Part 1

Thanks to Kelly and Dave of the Bay Area Photoclub in Houston we break a multi-month photography abstinence and decide to go to the most impressive bike rally we’ve ever seen! A great organization 250,000 bikes in a sunny and warm Galveston. For the details: you can watch the news  and for the pictures just follow […]

September’s gone – Houston’s Strong

September’s gone – Houston’s Strong

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 […]

5 Steps for your Pet Photography at home

5 Steps for your Pet Photography at home

Kids and pets are one of the most challenging subjects for any photographer and a source of frustration for the average owner of a low-end, point-and-shoot camera. Yes the hard truth is: you want to take a few good shots at your furry friends? You better have a good camera: pet photography is not for […]

Sunday evening

Sunday evening

Remember when, many years ago, his Show used to make my Sunday nights light and cheerful.  

Home alone

Home alone

Marta is out tonight and will be back after dinner…. She has not prepared anything for dinner…. He’s been cooking just for himself… The fridge doesn’t offer viable options… Angelo’s pizza is my only hope!
