16 November 2022

A little walk in the neighborhood, before sunset. Yesterday the sky was cloudy so it wasn’t the best day for taking pictures (at least, until started to rain!). I rested a lot in front of the window of a Chinese restaurant, trying to play with the reflections and I realized a couple of images for my series “Raindrop Blues”. I enjoyed it. Then I went to the supermarket: as I told you before, it really was a little walk!

14 November 2022

I always loved taking pictures underground. Today I took the subway to meet a friend and, waiting for the train, I saw these men standing still under that warm neon light. It was a good scene for a photo, so I took my Ricoh from the pocket and I shot. It’s not the best photo I ever took but I’m happy with it.

The Pink Lady

Sunday I met some friends of Roma Street Photography community to walk together and take some pictures. When I was in Piazza Navona I noticed this pink-haired girl so I followed her to take some candid photos. The first is my favorite picture among those I took to her, do you agree?

Photography and Other Stuff – Chapter 9

October is almost gone and it’s been a month full of interesting things. The 17th edition of Rome Film Fest is over and I’m back to my usual life after ten days full of movies and passion for Cinema. It’s always nice to live in a “different dimension” where everybody talks about films and the problems of the real world seem to be far and distant. But, at the end, you have to come back to your life and so… Well, in this new chapter you will find a selection of my latest street photos from Rome, as usual, my photos at Rome Film Fest, of course, new portraits for my Film People Project, a new photo from my series Raindrop Blues (right below) and a lot more. Enjoy!

Photography and Other Stuff – Chapter 8

October is always been my favorite month, for a lot of reasons: summer heat is finally over, the light is amazing, I love autumn a lot, then next week it’s my birthday. In a few days a new edition of Rome Film Fest begins and I’m going to attend it once again, to watch a lot of (good, I hope) movies and take pictures. Actually it’s not a great moment for me and my photography, I’m a bit stuck, but it’s something that happens often in this job and I’m not really worried about it. So let’s find out what I have to show you in this eighth chapter of “Photography and Other Stuff”! First, an image of Monopoli that I realized for my series Urban Melodies: a beautiful sunset in Portavecchia area.

My Apulian Summer

Summer is gone: I’m back in Rome, to my “usual” life, and now I have to look back to my Apulian summer to watch the photos I took, the life I caught, the moments I tried to keep in mind (and in the camera). It’s been a beautiful summer (even if I got the Corona), full of things to do, waves to swim, friends to meet and streets to walk. Of course I took a lot of pictures, included something for my series Raindrop Blues and Film People (not in this post, but there will be in the next chapter of “Photography and Other Stuff”, coming soon). Here a small selection of some (maybe) good street photo of my summer in Monopoli (and other cities too), hope you’re going to like it! All the pictures are taken with Ricoh GR III Street Edition.

Photography and Other Stuff – Chapter 6

Last week of July. I don’t have great news for you, I took some photos here and there and I found a great offer on Amazon about a photobook I was looking for since longtime. I should walk more and take more photos, I know, but I’m in holiday and I’m taking everything very slowly. In August I’ll change my attitude and I’ll walk a lot more to take new photos from my summer residence in Southern Italy. I don’t miss Rome, so far, but I’m already thinking about all the things that have to restart with the new season. Here a photo that I took before sunset in Monopoli. A good place for relax and charge your mental batteries!

Photography and Other Stuff – Chapter 5

Hi everybody, here is a new chapter of our PAOS. I’m happy that you appreciate this new feature of the blog, so let’s go with a new post full of images and more. Well, I don’t have Corona anymore, so last week was more interesting for me: I went back to Rome for the weekend to attend a wedding (and take pictures to my just married friends), so I had the chance to take some photos in the train station and more. Than I came back to Monopoli, in the Southern Italy, where I had the chance to visit more towns not far from here: Polignano a Mare, Cisternino and Locorotondo. I close this introduction showing you a photo a took in Termini Station in Rome, sunday morning at 7am.

Photography and Other Stuff – Chapter 4

Welcome in a new chapter of PAOS (Photography And Other Stuff). I’m still in the Southern Italy, in Monopoli, and I spent part of my last week at home with an unexpected host: the f***ing Corona! I’m ok and I’m waiting to be negative in the next few days. I had the chance to take some pictures in these boring days and translate my feelings in photography: a nice experiment. Before this strange week I went to a town I never been before, Noci, where I took a couple of pictures. Next weekend, if I’ll be negative as I believe, I’ll be in Roma again for a wedding, but next time I’ll write to you I’ll already be in Monopoli again.
And you? How was your week? Feel free to write me your personal PAOS in the comments, I’d like to see this little space as a open forum with a free exchange of ideas and experiences.
Before I let you read more, I close the introduction with this photo I took today downstairs, when I made a little walk to move my bones.

Photography and Other Stuff – Chapter 2

A new chapter of my new feature PAOS (Photography and Other Stuff). Thank you for the feedbacks and the clicks on the first chapter, I’m happy that you appreciated it. I’m about to leave Roma for some weeks, like every summer, but I won’t leave you: the blog will be open and full of new contents also from the Southern Italy! I will open this new chapter with a picture I took last summer and I never posted before, it’s funny how sometimes you find in your folders some images that in the first place you didn’t like and then, after one year in this case, you find it nice. I took this one in the harbor of Monopoli.
Welcome in the Second Chapter!
