Probably it’s not the right question

Something- 24th February 2015- NKTest

In the last weeks I have been thinking a lot about what to do in the following months.

Future doesn’t look that bright…and it looks even darker when I realize 99% of people I know have similar problems and fears and most have way better skills than me.

I ended up “hating” the time spent dealing with pictures.

 I semi-intentionally lowered my “production”.

Yes, I am being sick so no photography trips.
I am busy with the last two little fights, so no time for photography

Yet, each time I had chance to deal with pictures I just did something else.
Read a book, listened to music and so on.

I was thinking “Not such great value and well, isn’t it silly to seek Beauty when everything around is crashing?”

No, it cannot be silly.
I might fail at finding Beauty but there can be no failure at seeking It

I saw an army of Ents at sunset

The army of Ents - 19th October 2014

But they are not Ents!
These are just normal trees on mt Etna

Well, sorry

 10 days ago,
I was at my country house
it was sunset hour
clouds caressing a nearby hill made trees looking like giant human-like figures

I couldn’t help thinking about Ents

Little big surprise

The little olive tree - 25th Sept 2014

Almost dead when arrived home

small, weak

an olive tree that didn’t look like a tree

growing slowly

because it was a tree and

a tree has no hurry

why it should?

twice or something more its size now

still small

there is no hurry

why it should?

still looking a little frail,


brings a fruit to the world

A little fruit,

a little meaningless thing to the eyes of most

a surprise

to cheer the day

To cheer my day

May it be a whisper of hope?

No deep meaning

A glass of wine - Summer 2008

A glass of wine on the base of an old column
I recall it was taking this picture but now i thought a few of possible sounding-smart but essentially empty meanings I could give to this image.

I love cleaning up my pictures folders

Because even laptops can be artists (!?)

Yesterday evening as soon as I click on save button to save a picture

I get this

My computer's art

Despite worries on health status of my laptop

I  loved imagining it wanted to create something new

Lack of imagination. Really?

It was Saturday early night

I was leaving a local version of a Walmart when I heard something

It was a complex discussion between two or more “people”

I tried to find the source of this discussion.

It was a little boy playing with something simulating what sounded like an epic fight at its peak

Nothing strange, but I was curious and I tried to discover who were the fighters.

To my surprise, they were simple small stripes of a box.

I could not hold the laugh

The kid wasn’t a poor kid.
His family was close there shopping and looked liked a common family (alike mine and many others)

The kid was creating an amazing fight story just using stripes of a box.
What a glorious hand for a box piece!

Why the laugh?
He couldn’t be more against what common sense want to think about kids since I was one of those
(or probably earlier)

I can’t count the times I heard this complaint

“The young ones.
They don’t know what means to use imagination.
They have computer and television, all is already there.
They can create nothing…
etc etc etc”

Yes, if they are not allowed to develop imagination, maybe, they can turn out as sad kids unable to use creativity

but so far, I have only seen kids who skip no occasion to use imagination.

To not speak about one of my first memories:
my older brother creating a little soldier

Cork soldier - 22nd January 2014

We still do have fun creating little cork soldier

Summer not over yet

I was taking a photo of this mushroom

Mushroom: September 2013

thinking: “Oh well, it’s a little early but if there are already big mushrooms means summer is over”

Then I realized that 5-6 over-sized tiger mosquitoes were trying to enjoy my blood while I was taking the picture.
