I already know some friends reaction that would be something like: Do you still have NYC pictures to publish?
Sure, even some unedited pictures too.
I wonder if I should force myself to the 10 pictures limit.
Well, ok, 100.
I might be forced to rise quality this way.
Or maybe not.
No, maybe this is not a good idea.
I’ll keep my “let’s do your best and full stop”.
Today has been a crappy day.
Leg and head pain and the say goodbye to the webmaster moment…
I decided I had to work on picture taken on Sunday at the Forre Laviche del Simeto, where my camera displayed the warning message of “it’s too hot to work”.
At recalling my camera complaint i thought it would have made sense publishing a picture taken in NYC, a picture showing people in winter clothes.
and it’s getting cold too quickly
An amazing little simple party
We had a lot of fun.
Really a lot
but mainly it has been a really friendly and warm evening
Just 1 regret: I didn’t take pictures good enough to show how beautiful it has been there.

It’s something I always lack of and always look for
Especially in periods like this, when I have to postpone everything for the nth time.
I feel like someone who is trying to run away from something and falls down on floor, gets up and rushes steps to overcome delay, failing.
In this process I end up hating even my pictures.
No, i don’t hate how they look like, I hate having taken those because, I tell myself, “If I hadn’t wasted time with photography…”
but, then again, only thing that calms me down is taking picture or working on older pictures.
To go ahead I need, as everyone else, the serenity that only who and what we love can give
I am slow, I need my time but at least, I can still see Beauty shining… or I know what to look at to remind myself that, despite all, there is Beauty.
Why the above picture of a musician during the Closing Night of the NY Encounter 2013?
Because it always made me thought of the calm and elegant joy that you can find at doing what you most love doing.

That place is curious.
On a side you have the marshes where you can see several birds
On the other side the old buildings ruins (some new, some rather old) and then the beach
Here is probably one of the oldest game ever.
A father, an uncle or any reliable adult receiving the request from a kid to be raised from water and then:
“1, 2, 3″
Funny how I was visiting the old building close to the beach and recognized the typical yells of this game.
Often ears help to take pictures

These days are again days of attempt to clean up everything in my room, computer and studies
So I had a little time to go ahead with my work on NYC pictures, even if it’s not over yet.
Today i wanted to post the above picture but I didn’t know what to write so I asked to the webmaster if he has any idea
“Staten Island ferry station: people in transit”
How I love physicists and mathematicians: ask them to comment something, they go straight to the definition of that thing.
No useless words or concept, no extra data that allow misunderstanding
wait for something to happen under your nose
(e.g. without leaving home)
Not a great technique, though
Already told that she is my favorite model, as well as I already said that she rarely pose (generally avoids my camera) but she has something, a way to be that is charming and I cannot ignore it.
Plus the umbrella.
That umbrella that on May 12th became the main character of her youngest brother’s birthday pictures.
What was she doing in this picture?
Well. The smiling balloon in her hand should give an hit
She was looking for a good place to throw that smiling thing, for the mere sake to take a picture of its explosion without causing damages to the park.
Funny is that she looked like she was posing for a bizarre home-made fashion magazine.
I couldn’t ignore that.
One of the kind of pictures I love to take… pictures seeming telling something that (clearing) they are not telling.
In theory I should aim to be a good and serious photographer, but so far I’d be happy if I could just spend another day with some friends doing silly and harmless things, and why not, even enjoying time together taking this kind of pictures
She is good-looking
but I still have a lot to learn about taking pictures.
It’s good for a photographer, or a pseudo-photographer, to have good-looking friends who don’t mind playing the model role.
Better if they actually enjoy it to the point to suggest possible pictures.
I have to say (or confess?) that the pictures-request-moment is one of those moment when I figure out if someone consider me as a “tool” or as a friend with whom it’s nice to spend time being creative.
It’s even better if these friends are crazy enough to walk through a public park with their great grandmother’s umbrella as it is the most beautiful and old fashionable umbrella in the world.
I’m not a real photographer, they are not real models and nowadays it’s common that young people “pose” for funny pictures. I know this.
But please, see what’s beyond the appearance: the passion that generally was a reason (for me) to be pushed away now it’s just another way to enjoy time with some friends.
Pulzella (the girl on the left) commented the picture saying: Funny, we look like two opposite world. Him is like “I am so beautiful, I can be a photographic model”. She is like “tralalla what a beautiful day it is”.
Just a nice brother and his sister enjoying time with friends.
