Do you have black and white pictures?

A friend has a project and asked if I can afford a b&w picture for a project she is developing

I told her I have few b&w shots since I often take pictures to thing that in b&w would loose part of their beauty

Yet, I tried to create some b&w images out of pictures I had…doing so I discovered some “forgot” shots that were waiting for being edited

It had been a nice surfing through the archive moment.

When Sicily bores to death

Well, not exactly but I laughed at myself while taking this picture
I was in Castel Mola on the stairs that lead to a castle ruins,
then I saw something that trigger silly mood

I started jumping around repeating: “Postcard! Postcard!”

Took a postcard-like picture

Boring Sicily (Ironically) - 7th October 2014


Loudly laughing

Then I walked away saying

“Well, I just gained my room in the hell for photographers”

Men, the eternal little boys

They love to act as they were knights  (ok this is, sometimes, a good thing)
they often want to prove they have a mighty body/mind and so on…

fortunately they are also able of endless cuteness
(or maybe it’s their secret weapon?
😎 )

I asked to The Webmaster to choose topic and picture for his 2015 calendar.
He said “I want something that speak about summer in SICILY while I am in the land of winter, so yes, something about the sea in summer time, definitely I want that picture of the fish and the sole fish”

After a few days I asked something else about the calendar and he, with an expression you imagine possible only on the face of a 5yo, kept saying: “I want that picture of the fish…”
Yeah… I understand you love that shot, but you also said you want more than one picture in the calendar…

Ok, now I try posting the “famous” picture of the fish and the sole

The fish and the sole - 2nd September 2014 (taken with Olympus TG3)

maybe it works to get extra information


Sorry to any eventual angry woman who ended up here,
I tease “my” man but hardly hate is a good answer, especially in this scenario

Be content

I wanted to catch the full moon rising from the sea.
Clouds on the horizon stole the moment I have been waiting for

Full moon 12th July 2014

I guess I have to be content with the above shot


Next month I’ll try again.

Little victory

Capo Mulini, Sicily - 16th March 2014

Another little trip

This time a “new” spot for picture taking.

A corner in Capo Mulini

I have a cramp, while walking on rock to find a nice point of view I get a cramp.
What now? Well, ignore the light pain and go ahead with the idea

The idea is simple: taking a picture with the longest exposure time possible,
rough sea means running drops and this generally leads to interesting results

1/20 of a second longest time possible, without adding a dark filter  lens to the polarizing filter
I have no tripod.
1/20 is generally not a problem to stay still enough to get a nice picture but silly leg and a no tripod made me thinks that all attempts lead to no results.

Instead, a few hours later, I find out it went even better than hoped.

Unimportant little result, but it felt like a victory!

Seeking peace

Sunset, clouds and sea - 7th March 2014

I go to the place from which I can see it when I can’t stay home and have no will to go to university

Despite situation is not the most pleasant, it is lovely to study there and take some breaks to contemplate beauty.

Today weather wasn’t the most lovely possible but somehow it was relaxing to observe it

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.

Mt.Etna and Sea calendars

Yesterday I completed the Mt. Etna calendar

About 30 minutes ago I have started to work on the 7th and last calendar, but for some reason I came up with this unplanned result

I have to figure out if I want to put it in the group of the calendars I want to sell or create another sea calendar for the people.

Not that I want a personalized unique calendar for me  but I reckon that the union of such a B&W image and the colors of the days (even just the white and reds without any other specific event highlighted) can be really disturbing, unless both the picture and the colored days means something for you…I don’t know.

I think that it’s something that only a crazy mind like mine, that links to that picture a lot of little but relevant moments of her life, can like such a calendar.
