16th: Willy Bit and the rose

16th: Willy Bit and the rose

Willy Bit finally reached the rose.

The pink dog explained him that the rose is pride of the forest

When the rose is a little bud, it looks orange-red.
When it blooms it is yellow, with the passing of days it turns white
When is about to drop petals, the petals edges turns slightly red.

No one has yet been able to explain why these changes happen, but forest people do love their rose.

Weather is crazy.

Rain clouds and sun seem dancing on the notes of an endless music

They are alternating each other more than once in a few hours

Somehow mood is following this restless rhythm

Camera is turned off and I’ve no idea if I’ll ever turn it on again in the next weeks, maybe even months

If camera will kept off for this long I fear I can say “darkness is winning” or worse “darkness won”.

I’m trying to organise a taking picture day but I might fail…no time, even less energies

I’ve some pictures taken about 2 weeks ago that might be posted but little will to take care of them too

So, even if I know well that the thought”I’ll turn off blog” often triggers an avalanche of new pictures

I might quit activity for a while

Willy Bit?

I have a few of shots already baked and almost ready to be published but we’ll see.
Definitely not before the end of April.


It’s time to drop a (hopefully not) last slice of Beauty I found

Rain drops on rose and rose bud - 5th April 2014 (pseudo-HDR)

Have a peaceful Easter

Rain drop(s) - 5th April 2014

I love when it is silent if I have to study or I want to read

I have had very little access to silence in the last months.

It is true I love studying listening to music but music is not noise

I think these last two months turned off any will in me to the point I recall very little of what I was thinking while taking the above picture

But I recall one thing, it was quiet

A break of light between two rain moments

A break of silence between stressful noisy week-days

One of my favorite redundant day


Time is running too fast, I’m too late.


Another HDR.

It’s annoying that it’s wind the day you can take pictures to try to “create” HDR pictures of flowers ,but… experiments is all I can do.

A mother’s patience

Red roses 2013

Me: I need help to take a picture to the red roses

Bro gave no feedback

Dad: Have we red roses?

Mom: I’ll help you

We have been there for a little while, she held the roses oriented toward the sky (because the plant hangs outside the balcony gates) and I took some pictures.

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.

The endless activity

Cleaning up pictures.

Once again!

There are 2 main facts that make this “operation” an endless activity
1. If you keep taking pictures you’ll never finish to order them
(probably your pictures folder will be still messy the day you die)
2. If you stop at each folder to play with pictures…

you are kinda hopeless.

Just to not be silent

I wanted to write a post  about a picture taken today (May 13th) but I had to change mind.

I’ll get back soon.
