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.

“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.

The elegant arrogance

The elegant arrogance - 7th January 2012

I am envious

yes, I wish I were able to display and use the “elegant arrogance”

like this seagull that seems thinking

“The wave hits my rock in a way it bothers me?
No problema, I take off and get back when wave is gone”

I wish I had seen this possible meaning back to when I took that picture in January 2012

Only 3 years ago but too many years ago for a lot of reasons

back then I was just “gloomy captivated” by that dance,

of that elegant weird dance/game the seagull was playing with the sea

Now I just smile, see, record and go ahead.

Not sure this is a good sign.

We’ll see.

Hello Mr. Cormorant!

Mr. Cormorant - 28th September 2014

Finally I “caught” you in a picture

ok, ok, you kindly showed up

I can’t count the times I tried to take a picture of you,

well, more likely they were your relatives, not you exactly

yet it was hard even to get close enough to “steal” a little of you with my camera

Sure, now, I am grateful that this morning you were closer and not scared by my presence


just a question:

Is the new fashion among Cormorants to stay on street lamp and not on the rocks far away in the sea?

Who are you?

Seagull - 26th May 2014

I guess that the yellow-legged gulls deserve the Italian name “gabbiano reale” (regal/royal seagull)

Enjoy your lunch!

1st Nov 2013 - Seagull

I have been surfing through my HD to recover data for an exam, and I found this picture placed in a folder that was not thought for picture.

I think I took it on November 1st 2013

I am confused by my own picture.
It is both “eew”-triggering and charming

Nature, I guess
