“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

50x70cm to overcome homesickness

The size of the poster that the webmaster will hang to his bedroom wall in a few days (hopefully).

His only request was “Just things from Sicily”.

Attempt to overcome homesickness a little 🙂

PosterPerEmaWhat does it shows?
From upper left cornerMt Etna, a sunflower after a rain of July.
A rose of last May. Water of Pantalica. Java, you know her.
A detail of a Catania fountain, a blackbird, a sunset seen from Catania port. Soap bubble
Ponte dei Saraceni, a garofano,
webmaster’s favorite cat living close to my bro’s house, this cat has just one long tooth and an incredible acting ability, despite it’s clearly properly feed he always asks you for something.
And, of course, a picture of the shadow of his girlfriend taken during our trip to Pantalica.

New breakfast friend?

Every day we leave a bit of food for sparrows.
We leave food for birds since winter 2008, actually it all started when I  have started taking pictures to sparrows.
With the passing of time I have taken a couple of pictures to, what i think is, a Capinera and other small birds

In the last 2 years we had to keep pigeons away from that food.

A new visitor, I think a blackbird,
after showing up very rarely and quickly for the past 3 years,
came to  eat some food and drink some water while I was having breakfast

It was  a nice way to start the day

(if you consider I live in a area of Catania with almost no green around it’s an event)
