I know it’s not Italian/Sicilian tradition but…

Baking cookies February 2015 - NKT_9734

I had planned to do something for St. Patrick day

cookies with something green, maybe pistacchio to merge Ireland and Sicily traditions

or go for the easy pasta with pesto, pesto is more of Genoa area but still Italian and super wow tasting.

It ended up I barely realised what day is so nothing happen.

Will be for next year…I hope at least.

I know, silly little thing.s
Well, to the world’s eyes, not to mine

Second chance

Dead grapevine - 20th February 2015 -  Nikon D700 test

It is good to have a second chance sometimes,
even if it’s for just a picture.

From the archive (gardenia)

Among the pictures selected for a friend who looked for b&w pictures I put this one

Gardenia b&w

A picture of gardenia flowers,
as already said, this is not among my favorite flower
but yet its shape it’s interesting, especially for b&w images

Who is about to leave?

Maybe both, or probably one of the two has just arrived

They sunbathe.
In October.
In Sicily
The sun is still warming the air quite well, you can stil use just a t-shirt.
It’s the 17th of October, the warm outside is lovely.
Only the cold wind you feel in shadowy places reminds you that winter is coming.

You keep on looking at that notice of a change.

You would avoid looking at it, but your eyes are staring.
You wonder if you sight is a little gloomy for something you hoped and didn’t happen,
or if it’s a little sad for something that you were scared of and happened.

While you are looking, a little voice breaks in your mind with a little laugh:
“Look at the way his hand is placed on the luggage”.

Everything change

Yep, his hand is not just resting,
looks like a lock,
for keeping under control the luggage.

A watchful rest,
a rest in a pubblic park.
You think “That’s exactly what I would do in the same situation…”

…and you smile.

A few days ago

while I was studying mom was cleaning up the kitchen.
She placed beside me a couple of  kitchen tools on the table …

Probably she should have never done that…

New header and car-related memories


Today we said “goodbye” to the car my parents bought about 20 years ago.

I have only a few seconds long memory about “the day the new car came” and a bunch of several memories related to this car.
One of the last memory is one of my first driving test, I fear I’m not really good at driving ^_^

I had spent about 2 hours in the car parking area, under a really “cooking” sun, trying to give a little of immortality to our car through pictures

All this meant a jump in the past for me, and a new header for this website.

This is a closing chapter for my family that, I hope, it’s leading to the start of a better one.

People at the “GdaÅ„sk 1980. Solidarność” exhibition

Among the pictures I’ve taken at The Meeting in Rimini, that’s one of my favorite shots.
