Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

gecko - 8th May 2016 ((OlyE30))

My father found this little guy in a bowl on the balcony

It looked more dead than alive, but still alive, fortunately.

I said it was cute, the rest of the family doesn’t agree with me.
The Webmaster sees a dinosaurs in it.

I’ll restrain to consider it a pet and just enjoy the fact I can occasionally meet one and try to take a picture of it before it runs away.

This one was kind or, more likely, tired enough to pose for a few pictures.

A cutie, indeed

I guess it’s time to be a little selfish

December 17, 2015

This blog languishes in a weird agony of silence!

Fortunately till a few days ago it was due to “lack of time for happy tasks”.
I spent 2 months and 1 day away from my sweet Sicily exploring how Beauty shines in the north-east of the USA and in the north-east of Italy.

Now travel is over, does it mean that it’s time to keep up posting?
Not really.

 I’d like to focus on Christmas time, pictures editing, new beauty hunting.
Above all I must focus on whatever it’s up for me next.
In any case many things have to change.

If doesn’t work, I’ll just clean whole pictures folder up (and this task can take several months), pack everything and go to the next “adventure”.

Sweet squirrel in Boston - 20th October 2015

All I know so far is that is totally useless I try to stop taking pictures at all. I tried to stop in order to save time, it doesn’t work, eyes will keep seeking beauty.

Yet, as I wrote in the title, feels like it’s time to be a little selfish.

Not a real damage for the world despite it seems loving darkness and lack of beauty more than it should.

See you.

Good and bad

November 19, 2015

Animals never fight with no reasons.

Humans are bad.

They fight with no reason and are never spontaneously good.

Today I spent a day in Boston, alone, and in different moments and places 3 people have been super kind with me, for no reasons (they gained nothing out of those kind acts)

Oh, just personal experience.

True, humans are not animals.

Am I serious?
As much as you desire truth.
Actual truth.

“My little mice”

March 25, 2015

Finally after several months we could meet again with Merins and her kids, actually the youngest was not there but it can just mean I have to take picture of him during a rugby match.

Anyway, I couldn’t help taking pictures…you know, I am still testing (read: “having fun using”) friend’s camera in different situations.

Tonight fun came also from the crazy lady who is old a “mouse” That is not actually a mouse a gerbil (those creatures that have a t-rex for snack).

I tried to catch the kind of moment you can see in the below picture because I want to record a drastic change of mind.
Assuming my memory is not fooling me Merins went
from thinking her children were gone nut for wanting gerbil at home,
to picking one of them and saying some funny silly things to those little creatures.

You can hear her saying “my little mice” when speaking about their 3 gerbils

Hello Mr. Cormorant!

September 28, 2014

Mr. Cormorant - 28th September 2014

Finally I “caught” you in a picture

ok, ok, you kindly showed up

I can’t count the times I tried to take a picture of you,

well, more likely they were your relatives, not you exactly

yet it was hard even to get close enough to “steal” a little of you with my camera

Sure, now, I am grateful that this morning you were closer and not scared by my presence

but

just a question:

Is the new fashion among Cormorants to stay on street lamp and not on the rocks far away in the sea?

Just a pinch of cuteness

September 27, 2014

I noticed 2 big eyes in the dark.

A little cat and his(her?) brother/sister.

I stayed still to see what they were doing

They get out of darkness and jump on the scooter

I then tried to get closer to the kittens

I asked them if they liked the scooter for being born in Italy

the kittens look was filled with curiosity and fear

I got closer trying to not look menacing

the kitten hidden behind some leaves

I started getting pictures and kept getting close slowly

One of them got back on the scooter.

In few minutes they accepted my presence

The kittens curiosity and inexperience made them trust me,

maybe a little too quickly.

At the end
one almost jumped on my camera.

I felt sorry for the scooter owner

I smiled and wished a good night to the little creatures

They kept ignoring me and started trying to catch the car lights reflected on the scooter

No wonder,
no introspective art,

Just a touch of cuteness (kittens) - 27th September 2014

just a pinch of cuteness.

New little one

July 6, 2014

Yesterday I bought a new camera.

It’s a kind a caprice, a little, I admit.
But, it’s also a things I have been looking for a while: a camera that let me free to take pictures in “dangerous for a camera” situation won, free from big worries.

At the end the camera that seemed best compromise as features-vs-costs-vs-actual”need” was the Olympus Tough (TG-3)

Sure is, today I loved to test the crazy macro function

Below pictures is not cropped much (just changed format from 4:3 to 2:3 and resized for web)

Ant - 6th June 2014 (taken with Olympus TG-3)

Now I just need to wait for the webmaster to come back in Sicily and go to the sea

Ladybug on tree

Lady Bug on tree - 21st April 2014

Playing with “old” pictures while waiting for the moment I can get back to picture taking
Ignoring Willy Bit Adventures pictures I don’t go for pictures hunting since April 21st

Yeah, it’s fun to plan my shots as I do with Willy Bit’s Adventures pictures, there is room for surprise even in that situation, but I guess I love much more just going out and wait for reality to surprise me

Maybe I’m just being lazy and dumb

We’ll see
