so, it was about 30 years ago (sigh!) and i was backpacking in italy. i had borrowed an old pentax camera with 2 lenses, trying to transfer a growing interest in making pictures into practice. it didn’t go very well… one of my inspirations, and aspirations, was to make a poster with doors and knockers – so with the weekly challenge this came into mind again. i know i should have left it in the dusty bin it was stored in, the pictures are shamefully unsharp to start with. anyways, some 30 years ago i had an ambition, and as i say nowadays – ambition is just another word for failure.
this is what i long to see on the other side of the underpass, dopo il sottopassaggio – girasoli!
a couple of years ago i came across the venetian specialty spritz aperol, which now rapidly is spreading over europe as the summer drink of choice. quite understandably, it’s a great (but dangerous!) for those hot summer nights at the piazza, watching people walk on by. (and don’t let the letters fool you, the content is a spritz aperol and nothing else – the true orange passion)
hard to believe, but spring will come. i know for sure (that’s me trying to convince myself) that the cold morning frost will give away, the colours will come. the freeze outside is just a bad april’s fool game.
from the desert bloom to the setting sun
from the first deep breath of “I love you, baby”
colours will come
