The nth failure
Not surprising but annoying yet
I have the blessing to know people who dare to love
who dare to say: do your best, but you are not defined by this
So true… but I wish I were able to do more.
I have to keep doing my best, at least to thank for this love
At the moment all I have to offer: the slices of Beauty I see
And why not? Despite all I can still keep fighting to increase Beauty awareness
even if I’m going to contribute with just the equivalent of a drop in the ocean
At the end, if 2 seagulls can be the main characters of a something that made people see this Beauty more easily
Yeah, no one is trash.

some are just ignored
it doesn’t necessarily mean they are sad and not loved

Shocking how water looks like in this picture
I swear I changed nothing in the original picture, probably a slight change in lights, but the effects in the water was all there.
Now I just wonder if it’s a nice thing of just the consequence of not clean water.
Well, I was in a small port when I took this picture but maybe it’s just nature.

Not sure if this seagull resembles
a bizarre funny version of the Holy Spirit.

As planned 2 weeks ago, today was the “relax day” before the final sprint. Actually I’m about to get back to my meth-math because I’m too late (as always)
Lucky me today was the second really nice day in a row.
We headed toward Acitrezza, a town on the coast, not far away from Catania.
I found an half-peaceful place where a few seagulls were resting. It was like find a treasure!
I did my best to get as close as possible to them.
I got way more closer than hoped and I started shooting thinking
“wow, I went to Vendicari to take pictures to bird and there were nice ones not far from home. Well, ok, sure is that they are not flamingos”
thank you Mr. Seagull

Seagull – 1st November 2013
when studying (or dealing with work tasks) and stress get too oppressive
1 hour of just taking picture and feeding soul staring at beauty might be more powerful than you could imagine
I have already experience that taking pictures (or doing anything you truly love) is the best way to recharge
but it’s always an amazing surprise, an expected beautiful present.
Sure is that now I start wondering if i don’t have to walk with my reflex camera everyday.
Taking pictures today with my phone and my bridge camera was cool, but I do missed the DSLR freedom
(waiting for the friend saying “well…there isn’t such a big difference among DSLR and bridge pictures of yours)

or Calidris minuta.
Not super sure about the name.
I’m getting crazy at trying to understand the names of the birds I have seen in Vendicari.
Anyway, it’s a funny thing to do…actually it’s also a very useful activity because this way I am discovering amazing shots by other people that are giving me hints for improving.

It was amazing to see how their movements were at the same time elegant and clumsy.
Elements like long legs and looking light gave a sense of elegance,
but the general impression was the same lead by those clumsy movements we make in attempt to walk making no sounds
At least they are not reptiles, but actual birds!
These birds should be what we call “Cavaliere d’Italia”, the English name is “Black-winged Stilt”.
Somehow I prefer the Italian name that makes me thinking about knights and gentlemen
Definitely the less shy bird over there.
[Recall, I'm not a zoologist and I understand very little of this field, I just try to look for the names. If anything is wrong, as soon as I find the mistake I'll correct it]
