Rebel reality

Vendicari - 28th December 2013

Taken in “Oasi di Vendicari” (Sicily)

I went there to take pictures of birds.

That day (December 28th 2013) birds decided they didn’t want to show up close enough for my little tele-lens

I had to adapt.
I tried to take more pictures of the area

I repeat myself.
It’s one of those several moments that Beauty seems saying
“Listen, you cannot control reality but you can decide if really looking at it”

I tried but I am still waiting for bird picture.
Soon or later I’ll catch it.

Meanwhile, I’ll enjoy Beauty showing up in unexpected ways.

I can’t complain, it just means more “cookies” for my eyes

Vendicari first star - 28th December 2013
First “star”(*) for the first post of year 2014

This is one of those shots where Beauty seems yelling “enjoy if you can”

Not kidding, I wanted to take pictures of birds but no pictures of birds happened.

Instead one of the pictures I like more of that day displays something I thought impossible:
reflection of a star(*) on water.


(*)Actually it’s Venus, a planet.

Upside down

Vendicari December 2013 - upside down bird (duck?)

2-3 the total of pictures I think I’ll save from yesterday trip.

I want to take pictures of flamingos, no flamingos there.
I took pictures of situation I didn’t imagine.

I plan x and y happens.
Nothing new under the sun.

I fear I have to wait new year to figure out exactly what to with these pictures

So much to do in so little time.

At least, happy doing with friends and family.

Vendicari August 2013: gambecchio (Little Stint)

Vendicari August 2013: Pettegola (Redshank)or Calidris minuta.

Not super sure about the name.
I’m getting crazy at trying to understand the names of the birds I have seen in Vendicari.
Anyway, it’s a funny thing to do…actually it’s also a very useful activity because this way I am discovering amazing shots by other people that are giving me hints for improving.

Vendicari 2013: the beach area

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”


and splash!

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 🙂

Vendicari August 2013: Garzetta (Little Egret)

Garzetta (Little Egret) - Alcantara August 2013

It was amazing to see how their movements were at the same time elegant and clumsy.
Elements like long legs and looking light gave a sense of elegance,
but the general impression was the same lead by those clumsy movements we make in attempt to walk making no sounds

Go fishing to have chicken for lunch

Today I have spent the day at Vendicari, with parents and webmaster

Aim: trying to take pictures of amazing birds

After a couple of hours: no nice bird picture.

First semi-decent shot displays

Lizard - Vendicari 2013

 a lizard.

“so close”

Nice sense of humor Boss…

as always


not to bother…

it’s like one goes fishing and end up catching a chicken.

He won’t say no, but…after a thank you… why?

Maybe, as you laugh at physics books you enjoys zoology books as well?
