Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

gecko - 8th May 2016 ((OlyE30))

My father found this little guy in a bowl on the balcony

It looked more dead than alive, but still alive, fortunately.

I said it was cute, the rest of the family doesn’t agree with me.
The Webmaster sees a dinosaurs in it.

I’ll restrain to consider it a pet and just enjoy the fact I can occasionally meet one and try to take a picture of it before it runs away.

This one was kind or, more likely, tired enough to pose for a few pictures.

A cutie, indeed

I guess it’s time to be a little selfish

This blog languishes in a weird agony of silence!

Fortunately till a few days ago it was due to “lack of time for happy tasks”.
I spent 2 months and 1 day away from my sweet Sicily exploring how Beauty shines in the north-east of the USA and in the north-east of Italy.

Now travel is over, does it mean that it’s time to keep up posting?
Not really.

 I’d like to focus on Christmas time, pictures editing, new beauty hunting.
Above all I must focus on whatever it’s up for me next.
In any case many things have to change.

If doesn’t work, I’ll just clean whole pictures folder up (and this task can take several months), pack everything and go to the next “adventure”.

Sweet squirrel in Boston - 20th October 2015

All I know so far is that is totally useless I try to stop taking pictures at all. I tried to stop in order to save time, it doesn’t work, eyes will keep seeking beauty.

Yet, as I wrote in the title, feels like it’s time to be a little selfish.

Not a real damage for the world despite it seems loving darkness and lack of beauty more than it should.

See you.

Good and bad


Animals never fight with no reasons.

Humans are bad.

They fight with no reason and are never spontaneously good.

Today I spent a day in Boston, alone, and in different moments and places 3 people have been super kind with me, for no reasons (they gained nothing out of those kind acts)

Oh, just personal experience.

True, humans are not animals.

Am I serious?
As much as you desire truth.
Actual truth.

Seagull in Venice – Venice June2015

Venice Seagull - 26th June 2015

Yesterday was the turn of a baby seagull living on Lachea Island

Seemed logical to post the picture of an older seagull acting like a king in Venice.

Seagulls in Venice seem way more used to human presence, I can not say you can almost shake hands…well, hand-wing… with them, but close.

Few minutes after I took this picture I ate my lunch sitting under one of those arches you can see in the background.
Apparently The Webmaster has some appeal to seagulls, one of them thought well to come jumping around at about only 50 centimetres away from The Webmaster.

Little and defenceless

Little Seagull - 6th Jun 2015

First desire is going to hide somewhere
Stop caring of the “useless” or simply the not “popular” and “cool”
Not bringing new life to this hell.

Second desire is not to let darkness easily win.

Beauty pinch?



Beauty pinch - 20th April 2015

“My little mice”

Finally after several months we could meet again with Merins and her kids, actually the youngest was not there but it can just mean I have to take picture of him during a rugby match.

Anyway, I couldn’t help taking pictures…you know, I am still testing (read: “having fun using”) friend’s camera in different situations.

Tonight fun came also from the crazy lady who is old a “mouse” That is not actually a mouse a gerbil (those creatures that have a t-rex for snack).

I tried to catch the kind of moment you can see in the below picture because I want to record a drastic change of mind.
Assuming my memory is not fooling me Merins went
from thinking her children were gone nut for wanting gerbil at home,
to picking one of them and saying some funny silly things to those little creatures.

You can hear her saying “my little mice” when speaking about their 3 gerbils


I have some crazy friends.
That’s good craziness

“You are crazy”

Friends say  “entertaining”, when they want to be nice, but I guess 98% of the time someone ended up describing my behavior he or she used a word that express the concept of “craziness”.

That’s curious because I have a relatively “boring” life and I am partially grateful for it,
but sometimes it’s considered crazy even to be grateful of a quiet life.

It’s not up to me to say if all of those people who defined me “crazy” were right

but I thought to most of them when a few days ago I had lunch at home,
boring thing to do,
and I kept my camera under the chair while I was having lunch because
“I want to be ready to catch that blackbird who comes for lunch, I want to catch moment he(she?) picks food”.

Blackbird having lunch - 11th January 2015

I felt terrible sorry for some of those who called me “nut” because I await for similar events

Winter time

Seagulls, slice of beauty in winter time - 10th January 2015

Winter is coldest time of the year but, if the blessing of having food and a warm house is not enough to be glad…
Winter can also mean

– Days getting longer
I always see as a prelude of spring and summer time

– St. Agatha Festivity
Ok, that’s a special only for people from Catania, sorry
People in NYC might go to NYE to enjoy a great event

– Little trips toward sea to catch seagulls.
Or just to enjoy sea. I often choose trips to the sea as way to cure light sore throat

– If I get lucky and I have time: trip on mt Etna in search of snow pictures
It’s a pearl of Sicily. Should be enough as explanation.

So I guess next fight will take place in a relatively good period that can speak of hope.
Little hope in a little life but it’s something good yet.

Feels like being too busy is best way to not waste time to whine about past mistake and future fear.
