Light pulls us in

One has to go to feel, I always say. I could have never imaged time square and the feeling it was to actually be there. I felt so small in the middle of so many people going up and down and bellow so many huge buildings. But to top it all is to be in time square at night, those billboards were everywhere and so filled with light. I spend numerous hours trying to model reality, but sometimes I think I am in some kind of virtual reality environment.

Gondole Gondola

Gondole, gondola… The infernal traffic on the Venetian channels.

Today I woke up with a melody on my head…. Gondole, gondola, … gondola, gondola.

This was the way the gondolier called clients in the middle of a Venetian Road to take a stroll on those beautiful venetian channels! As I responded affirmative to his call, I followed him to take this so typical gondola ride along the canals… and there I was in the middle of so many gondolas, stuck in traffic (can you imagine).

I have never imagined that in such a small space could fit so many gondolas. Hope to one day return to once again take a ride on the heavy traffic canals of Venezia.

Modelling, Seeing, Imagining & Photography

I believe that to understand a model we need to experience it, feel it even if it is in some very different way…. The more we experiment the more we can imagine and this is probably our way of modelling what we don’t know through our life inputs or the data we collect. Photography is all about the experimentation and imagination that make us build imaginary portraits that we materialize through a shot. My first photo experiment that I place here was the bokeh effect.

Round and creamy a mixture of color that gives a yummy taste on the nightly environment full of color and sparkling lights. Why are night shots so captivating that we forget everything around us?
