Weekly Photo Challenge: Fray

, , , , , ,

“Whatever is on my mind, I say it as I feel it, I’m truthful to myself; I’m young and I’m old, I’ve been bought and I’ve been sold, so many times. I am hard-faced, I am gone. I am just like you.” – Detachment

It’s a quote from one of the best movies I’ve seen lately. It talks about the complexity of human emotions and how we can get caught up in our everyday lives and get consumed by them. This is my entry to this week’s challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette (4)

Let me tell you the story of this man. He’s a poet and he walks around the city and whenever someone wants a poem all he/she has to do is ask him and he composes one right on the spot. One morning I was on my way to the university when two construction workers that were working on the renovation of the cathedral of Florence asked him for a poem and he started : “This mighty structure that graces our city everyday…”. He is one of the most well known and respected citizens of Florence.

I took this photo a while ago with a film camera, a Kodak retina 1b. A camera my grandfather bought in the 50’s and still works perfectly to this day.

This is my last entry for this week’s photo challenge. I hope the next one will be as exciting.

My second entry for this week’s photo challenge. Yet another foto I took with my phone. This time though, the light source is the river which is reflecting the light of the setting sun and the protagonists are the shadows of the buildings that are being reflected on water. I’m really enjoying this week’s challenge, it seems to be bringing out the best in people . As always I would love to read what you guys think of my photos.

My entry for this week’s photo challenge. Took this photo in Florence some months ago with my phone. The sky was particularly colorful that day and there was this amazing contrast between the profiles of the buildings and the rest of the environment. Hope you enjoy it. As always I’m eager to know what you think about my photos.

Once upon a time in Isfahan

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

These photos are from my trip to Isfahan back in 2008.  I was just starting to take intrest in photography. Isfahan is such a magical place. There’s a saying in Iran that goes like this : ” If you’ve seen Isfahan, you’ve already seen half of the world”. Now, that’s a bit of an exaggeration but it has some truth to it. Everything in Isfahan has been touched by the gentle hands of art. You can always find something facinating in each angle of the city.

A moment frozen in time.

A moment frozen in time, that’s what a statue is. Whether it’s the anxious look on David’s face after he has thrown the stone or the lifeless head of Medusa held by Perseus, it’s always about that moment, that instant in which everything just stopped and turned into stone.

Today I took my camera with me to take some photos of these beautiful statues in Piazza della Signoria in Florence. As always my 50 mm lens came in handy because I wanted to shoot these statues as if they were real people. The level of detail on these sculptures is just overwhelming. They work in perfect harmony with nature. The light made by the sun and the shadows made by these statues work together to create one of the most magistic things that a man can ever lay eyes on.

Recycled Fashion

Tags

, , , , , , ,

This is a photoshoot I did some months ago. The idea behind the whole thing was to recycle everyday objects that we all use, put them together and turn them into an elegant dress. The dress was made by Areta (the model) and my friend Sara (Visit her blog at www.7-sevendays.blogspot.it ). The skirt is made of plastic garbage bags while the upper part of the dress is made of  a copper plate that they shaped into a top. My friends at  http://www.bedarumica.org/ once again let us use their studio so a big thanks to them.

Please comment on the photos and let me know what you guys think. I can never get enough feedback. Bob.
