Unhappy Luna Park

I don’t like to take photos in a “standard way”: it’s very easy to go photograph the sea during the summer, while it’s more difficult do it in winter ( and not in Black&White … uuufffff such a banality!! I like B&W but the sea during winter in black&White is a very commonplace.  Following this “philosophy” some years ago I decided to take photos in a desert Luna Park during a rainy day

Geometric aerial photographs

I found a new kind of photograph: aerial photography. Of course I have seen a lot of that genre of photos, but I have never practiced it. But now I have a drone…and so…go ahead to discover this new universe!!

A little point

Can a very little point change the meaning of a picture? But, in the world of photoshop, did I add the little black point or did I remove it? 🙂 🙂

Answers: yes it can! Of course I added the little point. It was a “poor” photo but I noticed that the child was looking at the ground…so I thought to add a little black point to give a reason of curiosity 🙂 Now I have a more interesting picture…but did I do well? Did I do the right thing or I should have left it without retouching?

I like photographs where there are likeness, not only in a direct way but also in different conjugations. You know that I’m stingy with words…so a picture is worth a thousand words….so please see the following examples 🙂  In this pictures the likeness & similarities are clear: I insert some highlights to indicate what captured my attention.

Do you like a threesome?

A good exercise for street photograpy is to take an argument, also a little or, at the first sight, meaningless topic and develop it. In this case I chose the number 3…that is to say…a threesome 🙂

I saw three windows and I waited for three persons
