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.

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.

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

Chasing after yourself

Seagull - 15th December 2013


I know it a little. A small little.

I know its effect. A bigger little.
Some friends’ lives, ruined by it.
They turned unable to see they were not alone.

It is scaring.

It was super scaring when I had the illusion that loneliness happens when you take pictures

You are there, just you, the camera and the subject.
You are alone with a drop to catch.

And the best.

And the best is when there is that dart,
like your soul punching from inside your whole body yelling

No time for thinking,
no time for chatting or anything else.

It feels like you are no longer taking a picture,
for a moment you wonder it is more like chasing after yourself, even if it is more than yourself


You don’t even realize it feels so.

You just “act and feel”

You realize all this only later…

Sometimes you find yourself wondering”what happened?”

Sometimes you are scared of how fast it had been

Less than a half a second.

If you get it.

All turns calm.


All is perfect.

Even if around you there are yelling people,
cars passing and whatever could happen in a city

You can ear nothing

It’s like they are elsewhere

It is exciting and relaxing at the same time

And technically it’s like you are isolated

but part of you,

forgive me the silly joke,

knows you could not be more focused on reality.

Yes because that drop you caught is something that speak of reality

it is something worth to share

it is something there stating

“You are not alone, it’s here for you too.
Don’t be greedy, go and show it to those who didn’t see.
And don’t worry, every piece of your body is still at the proper place”

A new spot

Seagulls - 15th Dec 2013

I love when it’s sunny in fall-winter Sundays mornings

Soon after Mass it’s easy to be “tempted” to go out for a walk and discover new spots of your hometown.

I ended up in a kind of open market inside a small port.
I already spoke about this port on this blog but today I noticed a little street that brings in another area of the port.
I thought it was not free access, but instead no one complained I was walking there (and sure you can notice a person walking with a camera+tele-lens)

In that remote area seagulls seemed almost posing for those who were there.

Not defined by success or failure

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.

Not every black sheep is considered cool

2nd November 2013 (Acitrezza (CT), Sicily

some are just ignored

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