Little victory

March 16, 2014

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!

Repetita iuvant: Alcantara 2013

August 6, 2013

In 2007 I went to the Alcantara park with parents. I took some pictures, mainly of dragonflies and some waterfalls.

During the following years I often said “Someday I want to go there again”

The day arrived yesterday.

This time parents and webmaster were my patient fellows.

Results are so so, I think (at least I like to think) that I could have done much better but definitely it had been a great day and results are still ok.

Sorry if I sound silly, but really, Sicily is amazing.

Birthday and a little slice of Catania

May 28, 2012

Today I turn 25.

I should hide but… well… the webmaster is in town, at the end we have to be glad to be alive, we are not starving… why not going out and spend the whole day with him?

Then, why don’t just stop in front of a fountain that is “Villa Bellini” in Catania?
Say “uh-wow. Is it new?”
And hear the webmaster kindly explaining that the fountain was already there when we were kids, so it’s probably there since before we were born (or at least before I was born)…
Sometime, I’m slow … really slow…(at noticing things)

And why not trying to make an HDR picture using long exposed pictures?

I’m not so happy about the left part of the shot, I will check tomorrow if I can do something to fix it…
I didn’t want to cut the composition or cut the picture…I consider that ray of light, hitting the left part of the fountain, a challenge that has to be accepted and lived in THE right way.

The only thing I am sure about is that I can’t complain of my birthday.

 I just wish people were a little closer to that Beauty, whose reflex I look for…
