Of course it's corny, so what

I took this Ektachrome X shot in Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral way back in 1972 with my Canon FT, my first serious camera and I used a star filter just for fun. I was younger and more carefree so bending the rules came more easily. Actually I'm still rather unorthodox in many aspects of my life. Rules are there to be stretched and at times broken because they only limit your freedom of expression. I like the shot corny as it is.

Roman Pine

Naturally the pines of Rome have been made famous by Ottorino Respighi's wonderful musical suite but it's true that these pines known in Italian as pini marini or maritime pines, do have a very special charm in this city. Of course these trees grow all over Italy but when you combine them with that magical Roman light the images that result are very nice. When they are captured at sunset all bets are off, as  they say. 

Che delizia / Have a delicious weekend

Cute faces

As my visitors know by now, I love to photograph children. I was fortunate to have among my clients, several social service agencies so I had the chance to photograph many very cute kids.

You add the caption

This is the kind of image where adding a caption other than place and time gets complicated. Please add your own caption in comments. This was a jellied apples vendor at the feast of San Gennaro in New York a while back.

Villa d'Este [ Tivoli Gardens ]

These gardens are truly magnificent and are a must if one visits Rome. They are not to distant from Rome. They are extremely relaxing.

A great image to start the week

I love this photo and I'm posting it again so that it may be appreciated. I think it's lovely. Of course the Brooklyn Bridge is a true architectural gem.
