Dublin, 2013

I’m really behind in my editing work, and I still have a lot of images from last year to process and share. This one is from Dublin in Ireland.

Shooting the St. Gerard Festival in Potenza

Every year I try to not miss the St. Gerard Festival when my town, Potenza, becomes alive and full of foreigners for five days. Last week I had the opportunity to shoot again this event.

People of the Grand Bazar

It as been over a month since I’m back from Istanbul, and I am sorry that I still have to write about it. Visiting Istanbul has been a great experience, and I had one of the most mesmerizing moments photographing the Grand Bazar (Kapalıçarşı), the greatest _suk_ of the world. In these images I wanted to portray the people of the Grand Bazar rather than its goods.

Aya Sofia at Dusk

It’s a few days since I’m back from Istanbul, and I have to say I already miss it. Istanbul is one of those places in the world that capture your soul. One of the places I enjoyed the most in Istanbul was Aya Sophia.

Sunset over the Sant’Angelo bridge in Rome

The Sant’Angelo Bridge links the Sant’Angelo Castle (former Mausoleum of Hadrian) to the left side of the Tevere river. It was built in the year 137 by the roman emperor Hadrian, in front of his mausoleum. In the background you can see the Basilica of St. Peter with its huge dome, designed by Michelangelo, and completed in just two years in 1587.

Castelmezzano is a village in the south of Italy, near Potenza. The town is perched on what is known as The Lucanian Dolomites, named after the famous Dolomites in northern Italy. The site is particularly attractive at dusk, when the artificial illumination makes the mountains seem on fire.

Photo: Deer of Nara

Deers are the symbol of Nara, and you can find them everywhere. They live in the wild, but they’re quite sociable, although the signs around the town say “beware of bites and kicks”.

Photo: Boy at the Fushimi Inari Taisha with a green umbrella

It was a rainy day at the Fushimi Inari Taisha in Kyoto, and almost everyone had an umbrella, but nobody looked as awesome as this young chinese boy with his green umbrella contrasting with the red torii.

Photo: The Falling Horse

This horse was a little nervous before going crazy, prancing and falling on his back. As far as I know, the horse is safe now.
