Lemon Christmas Tree

Lemon Christmas tree lights - Christmas 2013

Holiday time is over. I know.

I also understand that putting Christmas lights on a small lemon tree on a balcony is slightly away from tradition.

Generally we decorate the typical Christmas tree (a pine). We keep it outside to keep it fresh enough. Last one lasted a few years.

We display a nativity set at home, every year.
Actually we have several version of it…almost one per room.

As you can see, Lemon Christmas Tree is not for breaking tradition (we don’t need it).
It’s just to enjoy colors because lemons do look nice and bring colors to winter time.



A word is enough to the wise

Repetita iuvant: Alcantara 2013

In 2007 I went to the Alcantara park with parents. I took some pictures, mainly of dragonflies and some waterfalls.

During the following years I often said “Someday I want to go there again”

The day arrived yesterday.

This time parents and webmaster were my patient fellows.

Results are so so, I think (at least I like to think) that I could have done much better but definitely it had been a great day and results are still ok.


Sorry if I sound silly, but really, Sicily is amazing.

From childhood

I was looking for notes taken at university a couple of years ago when I have found a peculiar can…

I have started laughing at myself saying “I should take a picture and title it “lost childhood”…”
Mozzi and webmaster answered back saying “or “recovered childhood”…”

“Experiment” is a word that is often said by people around me.
I have grown up in a scientific environment
I had decided to study science
I am probably going to live the rest of my life in a scientific environment, indeed, the lack of money given to university in Sicily is going to change my life in 2 days.
This word is such a big part of my life that I often use it to describe what I do with photography… no, no, I don’t say “experiment” to sound like a smart-scientific-artist… it’s what I actually do since I have not the patience and probably the humility to open books or follow photography courses…
to be 100% precise I have to say that at first I looked at others’ works a lot (I still take inspiration by them),
that with time you get experience (a lot to do yet)
and the both last things help a lot to know what can you do with the camera and, therefore, to know toward which direction you can move with your experiments (like for a scientist that has to know how his instrument works).
But that’s what I essentially do: take the camera and see what I get and in some days i focus on specific “experiments”.
This is the long exposure time.
This is the first shot I am sharing that I took with a double polarize (tomorrow is the second).
This is the first shot on which I have started to work on, but that I decide to leave at the point I left it before dinner. It’s an incomplete work that tells to where stuck the conversation between me and the webmaster about this “new” method of taking pictures.
I don’t think I’m the first doing what I am doing, but i am sure that I have never read (so far) of people doing what I am doing and that I had this idea while talking with my webmaster in front of the sea in the late morning of October 31st.
Today I was still talking with him in front of this picture, while I was working on this picture… then we left for dinner… and I know that we won’t talk this close for a longer time from now.
I wanted to freeze things as they are.
I have other pictures to work on… and I will take more. For today, for another whole day spent with him I want to remember this.
Our chat in front of my works, or while I was taking picture that are just a mere mixture of topics.
