First of all… In 2 or 3 days i will launch a contest here… is not a classic photographic contest, but i hope you guys will like it… everybody can try to win the amazing prize, coz it is not one of those “best photo” kind of contest! in fact, you dont need a camera to win it 😀

Ps – I will only promote the contest if the posting of these photos won’t get me killed by my housemate David and my girl:

Jolly good time!

Talking about my penis maybe.

Or maybe she is just under the effect of some illegal substances.

Dramatic moment.


So… see you guys in 2 or 3 days 😉

After a conversation with Mr.Tome last night, when we where talking about streetphotography (conversation that had continued today at lunch), and after spending some hours at www.in-public.com last night (thanks again Tome for the tip) i decided to go out today to try to do some streetphotography. As you know i always do photos of friends, portraits and stuff… so i decided to give streephotography a shot… (pun intended).

Of course i dont have a leica, and its not always easy to be unnoticed with the big dSLR, but i did my best…

(oh, and i really dont understand flickr colorprofile…)

City is in danger? Call Batman.

Bla bla bla.

Im listing “Dont lose yourself” by Laura Veirs at the moment. And you?

For tome, since he is the reason of me making this post <3: ANDARE, ANDARE!

Huge lens, small… you decide.

ohhhnooozzzzz, izzzz a selfzzzz.

I guess the dog and the old men like different things. Thats why they get along so well.


This is streetphotography because i took it while i was on the street.

Im still listening to Laura Veirs. And you?


Nice position.

bla bla bla…

And thats it…

So, and i usually dont ask this, i would like you, dear reader, to leave a comment to let me know your opinon of my first attempt to streetphotography, or to leave a donation in my bank account since i broke.


Let’s get nostalgic…

As some of you know, is spring here… Or at least from 9am to 5pm… Spring days, Fall nights.

Spring means spending the day at the beach.

David (one of my flat mates) and Tony.

The camera of this little phone is… amazing, to say the least.

in fact i did this photo with that… and this is the jpg file as it came from the camera, with no post processing at all.

B latter join us…

And so did Enrico.


Cous Cous… amazing movie by Abdellatif Kechiche.

Smoking… such a bad habit…

Eating… such a GOOD habit!

Bike or horse? you decide!

Hummm… do you feel it? do smell art in these ones?


Im sure she’s explaining it right.

B. What a sexy nails polish you have there B!


And thats all for today folks… 🙂



There is a P.S.!

Tenho saudades tuas oh Bola de Berlim!!! 😛 (ok, ok, e tuas tambem oh Caro dos olhos feios!)

What have you been doing lately?

Besides of having my photos published in italian’s most important newspaper website “La Republica” (because of my internship at one of the most important sicilian’s “photonews” agency ), having my bike stolen during an assigment and shooting again at Massimo (the largest theatre in Italy (and the third largest opera house in Europe), were the final scenes of the film Godfather Part III were filmed), i’ve been:

Taking nice long exposure photos from my window…


Going to Franci’s countryside, along with her family…


Hearing Franci STILL talking about her nosering…


Taking photos of Franci, Tony and David with funny expressions…

Barbecuing fish (since spring is almost here)…

Cleaning the house…


By the way… im shotting a lot film lately, although im thinking on quiting, since i dont have here to print it, and shotting film to scan it and do digital prints its just ridiculous… So lets wait and see if i find a solution to this, coz i know that, as soon i quit film, i will lose a lot of friends like Bernhard, Tome, Suzan and Sebastian… (and the “how could i forget her” Kira) but, oh well, i guess that’s the price i’ve got to pay….

(btw 2- good luck for today artist!)

So this is the second part of the post about the people i’ve meet in my new city… Because in the last post there’s some people missing (and it still will be after this one, but whatever)…

B, Francesca and Franci, near the sea.

Chiara photographing Cristiano.

Cheking the nose-ring.


Cristiano, eating a typical (yet, disgusting) sandwich.

Checking the nose-ring, again!


So, i forgot his name. Im very bad with names. And other things too, as a matter of fact. His going to Porto next week or something… Erasmus, 6 months! Portuguese dinner day, Francesinha! (And, fuck it, it was really good! Auguri per Enrico, Franci and me!)




“I forgot his name too, but you can check it for me in the last post” messing in the computer.

Nice hat!


And that’s it for now… Enough “photos of people i know” posts for now… photos of the city and random people on next post(s).

Oh! Merry Xmas to all of you!
