Christmas Time is here!

I like to live the Christmas period. All our cities deserve nice surprises, with Christmas lights everywhere and other initiatives.

I'm particularly fond about Madrid and I can't miss to go there even if it could be only for a few days.

In that period the City is incredibly nice and uplifting.

Last Christmas I passed there a few days and to have had the chance to see how the people enjoy themselves (particularly the children) was uplifting, indeed!
Here attached you can watch a video that I grabbed last year that can give you an idea about that!

"Uno sguardo al Danubio Blu..."

Szentendre (Ungheria). 16 Novembre 2011.
Sono stato alcuni giorni a Budapest, ed altre città nel circondario, per un viaggio fotografico. Tra tutte le foto che ho fatto, questa è quella che al momento mi attrae di più. A breve posterò anche altre immagni.

Photography and very Simple Creativity.

I like to collect all my pics on Flickr.
For each photographic trip, I create a Set with all the pictures. Sometimes I create specific sets choosing between these ones.
It's, for me, a pleasure to see my collections after a certain period. It's nice to see again places that I saw long time before.
Today, was cold outside and I've spent my time at home. I've seen many pics that I did in my last trip in Formentera. I went there in September 2010..
But today I've been to Formentera in a different way. A new trip. Almost different..
I've selected several pics. I've opened each of ones, one by one. I've examined each one zooming, enlarging the image..I've explored each pic and for any pic I've chosen a preferred detail.
At the end I've obtained a pleasant sensation: a new trip, through details that at the first glance I didn't notice the value in the original pics.
Here attached you can see some examples:

Street Photography

Hi, friends!
In this post I'd like to write about how I practice Street-Photography that is my passion!
As you know, in photography is important to know all the techniques and all the rules but in a creative situations, all the rules can be by-passed, if necessary to spread creativity. I intent to be creative.
I use a compact camera with a wide angle (28mm) and a big zoom (x12). I like to keep my camera in my pocket and to use it only when necessary. A wide angle, a big zoom and a large display are useful to shoot photos in easy way, almost anonymously, without disturbing the people.
Wide angle allow to catch wide scenes and frequently happens to observe interesting details when I look at the picture in my computer. Several times I've obtained excellent pics by cutting parts of the original pics.
A big zoom is useful to catch particular situations in which the presence of the photographer could disturb the regular happening of the events.
The value of a street-pic depend about several factors..and fortune.
I like to shoot photos in a way that I've called 'Low-Angle' with the camera on the pavement. I like the Spanish definitions of this technique: 'A ras del suelo'. I'm so fond about this way that has become prevalent in 'my creativity'.
As you can see in the pics attached below, the results of this technique are really interesting.
In Photography  there's liberty and anyone can choose the way to operate.
I follow several great photographers on the Net and I like to be up-to-date about all that is referring at the world of photography. Is really important to be part of this wonderful world that is Photography. It's really a pleasure to follow how the innovation is creating stunning cameras and accessories, and is important 'to stay in touch with the technological progress'.
Here attached you can find a link where you can download a free book titled 'Going Candid...', written by the street-photographer Thomas Leuthard.
I don't use the tecnique that uses Thomas Leuthard but in my opinion is a nice book to read.
Shoot me a message! Talk soon!

Vilnius (Lituania - Lietuva). Ex Carcere e Sede KGB Sovietico.

Vilnius. 22 Settembre 2011. 
Carcere e luogo di soppressione del KGB Sovietico.
Una visita a questo luogo farebbe bene, forse, a coloro che nel dopoguerra aspettavano Baffone. Facevano gli intelligenti e gli acculturati allora e si ripetono..e si riciclano..senza vergogna.

La Storia del popolo Lituano è da studiare. La lotta armata, proseguita anche nel dopoguerra, contro l'occupazione Sovietica, abbandonati dal 'grasso Occidente'. Le deportazioni, le soppressioni. Tutto.
