St.Agata 2016

St. Agata 2016

Just a sample of what I’ve seen, with a cute shade of “modern”.
A few years ago there were not so many screens, yet I find it nice.
A selfie forces people to stay with their back at the show they want to use as “background for ego”
During the festival days I saw almost no one taking selfie.
At least if St.Agata was close 😉

Surprised by humility

ApplePicking - 15th October 2015

We went to this place for “apple picking”…beyond laughing at myself that I cross the ocean and one of my first activities is to go picking apples, I had the occasion to observe from close a reality that the previous trip in USA definitely couldn’t offer.

The best comment came from The Webmaster who was pleasantly surprised by the humility and kindness of the guy running this place.

Glass magician

Glass Artist - Venice 28th June 2015

Ok,  there is nothing of “magic” in what this man does, it was a  show for tourists and, it’s obvious that actual work is much more complex and long.

it is really amazing to see
the elegance of those movements, sharp and delicate at the same time;
and to see how in few minute from a shape-less thing he can create such beauty.

It’s a wonderful experience to peek-in the window on glass art.

The dance

Making arancini - 8th August 2015 - (Nikon D700)

Tonight we decided to do an experiment: make arancini!

It’s a “typical” sicilian recipe (that I know).
I’m pretty sure there is not only 1 recipe of arancini and that every lady around will state “mine is the best”.  Who would ever dare to say otherwise in front of such ladies?

We just wanted to spend a nice evening and have something cool for dinner.

Years ago it was my grandma who made arancini for us but, unfortunately, she had to gave up this tasks long ago.
It had been observing mama’s and grandma’s hands while they were cooking that I learned to love that “dance of hands”. Those hands, out of raw material or semi-raw material, created some of the coolest things you can find in this world.

Tonight, observing mother’s hands doing this dance again has made me remember one of the main reasons I keep taking pictures.

I smiled, I have found intriguing it was happening that precise evening.

I have taken the above picture and a few others,

then I turned off my camera.

If maybe taking pictures will be my everyday activity, it’s time I start learning those dance steps seriously.

If all goes fine, someday mine can be a mother’s hands or a grandmother’s hands dancing in front of the eyes of a little one.

Once again the yearly event

Colletta Alimentare

A tiring day but yet it is amazing to meet generous people, from the poorest to the richest.

Beauty shining in one of the best ways possible

I had little time to take pictures,

but I feel happy for this

means there was a lot to do

Intersection of space-time subspaces

Intersection of space-time subsets - 12th August 2014 (in Palermo)

I’m a poet…
probably this is a side effect of arguing with Quantum Mechanics,

I was in Palermo when I saw this moment  and I thought
“funny, looks like in every section of what is in front of me time runs  at different speed”.

I wonder if I need a new brain, mine sounds “burned”.

I look for something…

Full Moon, Crateri Silvestri, People - 10th August 2014
that gives me a reason to get up,
that helps me to go beyond human weakness.

little boy fishing - 26th July 2014

Ok, maybe this is not healthy to fish there but it was amazing to see this little man.

He didn’t look to be more than 7-8 years old

He was dealing with that fishing rod
It seemed like it was his first time or one of first time he was using that tool.

A little boy jumping back and forth from beach to the sea.
He had such a big smile, proud like few can be

He was so applied to what he was doing that even his toes seemed focused on the act of fishing.

It felt like looking at something that is about to bloom, to start, but you have still to wait.

Trying, failing and starting over again.

Moment of struggling alternated with some moment of elegance,
probably the latest were the steps that made theory turning into practical action.

Learning with enthusiasm, at its best.
