TRACCE DI UN GIARDINO

“Un curioso particolare quello che nota Giulia Bernini, la quale sfrutta come allusione di una parte per far intuire la presenza di un tutto che si deve così ricostruire nell’immaginazione dell’osservatore.
Diventa così sorprendente come una porzione di parete o di pilastro si trasformi in una superficie quasi magica dove sembrano apparire, tra le ombre dei rami, scene di un gioco riflesso, sognato, forse avvenuto, o tuttora in corso, lì poco lontano.”

(Laura Marcolini, Il Fotografo)

My first entry on Where’s my backpack?: this week’s theme is yellow.

Summer 2012, I tried my best to get out as early as possible to shoot some pictures in the first morning. I reached this bench in Innsbruck city centre before 8am: quite a record if you are on holiday!

I’m not a big fan of selfportraits, nor selfies, so you’ll get to see just my back!

I took it few years ago, during a roadtrip across central Italy, from one national park to the other, natural reserves and lee shores included.
Here I was sitting on a panoramic viewpoint inside Monti Sibillini national park, facing Fiastra lake.
If you’ll ever happen to be in the area, do not miss to pay a visit to Castelluccio di Norcia as well!

W.P.C.: Grand

Grand. As a sixth post on my brand new blog, I was looking for something more recent to show you, when I bumped into the Weekly Photo Challenge. It is asked to post “that special element: the ‘wow factor’ of a scene, that magical quality you’re always out looking for and so excited to capture with your camera”.
As you can imagine, in the past few years I’ve collected thousands (literally) of pictures, so picking a single photo for a challenge, is not always an easy task. Plus, I’m that kind of person who is likely to lose herself in every little thing, from a leaf to a small puddle, and that makes it damned easy to find ‘wow factors’ just everywhere!
Thus, I’ve tried to remember the last time I felt deeply stunned, while standing still in front of something. That something, is Pointe de la Parata, Corsica. The place is so much beautiful, that I would just call it magic.

It was a real rush to make it until there before the sunset. Of course, I couldn’t wait till the morning after, ’cause the light would have never been as good as at dusk. ;) However, before reaching the tower at the very end of the cape, I stopped running with my camera when I saw these flowers and had one of my ‘Alice in Wonderland’ moments (this post will help you a little to get it). A long one. Someone had to wake me up.
No idea of what kind of flowers are they, tho!
