D300 - 105 mm, 1/80 sec f/2.8, ISO 200

Here I am,

perpetuating the separation of good and bad,

believing my ego is too big to be beaten

and not realizing that "I" isn't really me.

D300 - 12 mm, 1/100 sec f/22, ISO 640

Cornered, in a seemingly real existence

if only we could remember

our timeless and shared

Hangover from a "Bilder einer Ausstellung"

D300 - 300 mm, 1/250 sec f/4.0, ISO 1250

The boundary between photography, painting and dream has seldom been as blurred as in the recent exhibition (Seravezza, Italy, April 4th - June 7th, 2009) by Anke Merzbach. I must say it was my first approach to her work and I found it rather disturbing. Her very personal approach to photography and her superb technique in processing images cannot go unnoticed. This picture here is a very personal remake of her style, based on my memories of the event.

For the sake of coherence, I moved all italian blog links to my new blog, so that cross referencing can be done within the same language framework. Please update your own links to the new site if you see fit.

The dusty lens

D300 - 24 mm, 1/80 sec f/2.8, ISO 640

It makes me believe I'm seeing

what I'm only imagining.

D300 - 100 mm, 1/400 sec f/11, ISO 200

Repeating schemes hiding

the inconveniences of our inner chaos.

Unimaginative temporary

The monoped

D300 - 100 mm, 1/8 sec f/32, ISO 100

Behold, my friends, one of the most incredible discoveries of all time! A new species of humanoid has been recorded by my most advanced photographic tools, a species which I am now honored to name: monoped. Yes, once seen in their true form they are horrid to our eyes, but they manage to mingle among us probably because of some telepathic abilities.
It is still unclear how these species has evolved and I call upon you experts to find a convincing theory.
Preening, mating and mimetic abilities will be studied soon...

Under a quiet moon

D300 - 12 mm, 15 sec f/4.0, ISO 200

Under a quiet moon,

on my uneasy feet

I wait

for the silence outside

to melt my frozen self.

The earthquake

D70 - 70 mm, 1/180 sec f/5.6, ISO 200

Basilica di S. Maria di Collemaggio, L'Aquila, Italy.

Honoring the people and the beauty God's will bestowed to the unique region of L'Aquila, the eagle.

Memory is not enough
to hold colors,
laughs and smells.
Not even stones are dead
until you can only see them
through the inadequate eye
of a dusty lens.

Far and near: Nine

D70 - 105 mm, 1/320 sec f/8, ISO 640

Cotton candy, moth balls, crystalline, silver whiteness make-believe.
Trees whispering and walking in a land of fantasy and reality.

Summer and winter, love and hate:
Often they seem the same to me.

Storms of emotions, like candyfloss
So sweet, yet so dangerous.

Wind, frozen in time, captured in mid flight.
Angry at being caught, turned to the hard crystal stillness of ice.

In your spun sugar dreams,
Stray liquorice sticks in bloom fade into venerability.

Growing against a colorless grain
The orchard bears nought but grey-shrouded pain.

Sometimes dreams are woven
not in the sky, but on the ground.

Ready to receive,
from the generous earth,
to the generous earth.

Under springtime Sun
Earth is the bride.

Don't you dare ask me the dream in red....

D300 - 105 mm, 1/250 sec f/22, ISO 200

Slivers of truth

like sunlight glares appear

on this blurred sea

where I sail.
