Likeness,similarity & analogy

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.

A difficult choice?

Some time ago I was walking on the Walls of the city of Lucca and I saw a very interesting place. As you can see in the pictures below there are geometry and simmetry:

So I decided to wait for a human presence: in the street-photography people are essential for a good picture. I took a lot of photos with my Fujifilm X100T before to find the “best one”.

Graceful Girl

I have always my camera with me…so, when I saw this pretty girl, I asked her to pose for me. She was reading a book and I liked the light on her face ( the light was reflected by the white pages of the book ).

I hope to be in time to partecipate to the weekly photo challenge Graceful 🙂 🙂

The criminal always returns to the scene of the crime.

The criminal always returns to the scene of the crime…and I return a lot of time in the same place..but in different season, in different time… The place is always different…as the editing is different. OK, I love this place: the Walls of the city of Lucca ( Italy).

After technicality some pictures with X100T: Street Humour

My favourite kind of photography is “Street-Photography” and in this type we can find a great variety of photos: serious, documentary, humour,  architectural, portraits … in the streets we can find a Universe! I like funny situations…so here you can find what I saw in the streets of my city: Lucca. I didn’t build ( create ) “fake” situations: in my snapshots there are only real scenes. In a next post I’ll describe my Street-photo tecnique.

On sunday I meet with my friends, we chat and we take photos. Below you can see my friends in action! In a little space there are a lot of interesting things 🙂

I waited a lot of time in front of the fountain….until here comes a guy ( I pre-visualised this scene in my mind, so I decided to wait )

The translation of “Cicciotto”  is “Chubby man”  ( I have always a compact camera with me! I cannot lost a picture.  )

Filters or not Filters? That is the question

Filters or not Filters, that is the question:
Whether ’tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The Aperture and Shutter Speed of outrageous Fortune,
Or to take Filters against an Exposure Settings of troubles,
And by opposing end them: a risk to not take a photo…

Below a JPEG directly from my Olympus OMD-EM5 camera:

One picture is not “better” than the other one It only dependes on what you want to achieve: an artistic picture? An easy “wow” 🙂 .. or .. a “normal” typical autumn day, a good colourful ( but standard ) image of your city? It’s up to you! Today there are Filters on all cameras…so why don’t use them?
