Hi everybody!

This summer me and my wife went for a “two-days-off” along the Po river delta, in one of the naturalistic oasis.

It was mid afternoon, sun was high in the sky and the weather very hot.

We were “safe” inside our car, with the air conditioning at the maximum speed when we saw that bird on the horizon, on the pole, feeling blue and trying to find some fresh air waving the wings.

So I jumped outside the car with the camera and… got him!

Thanks to Grace and her “Early morning haze” that inspired my photo.

A Web of Wonder

Since moving to Ontario in July, I’ve been both appalled and fascinated by the prevalence of spiders.

While I avoid these creepy creatures at all costs, I can’t help but capture their wonderful webs early in the morning.

This quote is so beautiful and I didn’t know it’s true meaning until we got our new best friend. He has been with us only five days and yet he has managed to climb inside all our hearts. We love him.

This is a scan of an old family photo that belonged to my mother-in-law. When I first started photography as a hobby, prints or slides were the only way to view images in those pre-digital days. Like most photographers my age I’ve accumulated 1000’s of photos that really did take up too much storage space, I’m pleased to say that 99% of those I have now scanned. When I first got a digital camera I mainly just viewed the photos on my PC, apart from ones of family events, from some of those shots I got enlargements done. I noticed recently that Photobox.com sell lovely Polaroid style prints of your photos that really do look good, it’s great to see so many online photo services where you can get prints and accessories from your valuable images as you just can’t beat holding a photo in your hand. So next time you’re in a store that offers “Instant Photo Prints”, pop your memory card in the machine, then in 50 years’ time someone will find the print and say “wow, that’s looks like mum and dad in an ancient car”
