Bits of pieces

Amongst the most satisfying endeavours in photography is the coming back home with a roll (or a card) full of weird objects that were hanging around the streets, just waiting to be noticed, in order to write a photographic story of normal stuff left in weird places.

Unsurprisingly, this kind of photos is best taken with just an iPhone or a compact camera. Looking back at the small selection of bits and/of pieces collected for this post, I do notice the prevalence of images taken with an iPhone and the Olympus XA, that I haven’t been using enough in recent years.

Montemagno, Calci, Pisa, Tuscany, Italy; Summer 2013. A statue and a kids’ skater wait in front of a mansion. A “vendesi” sign suggests that the property is for sale. Scan of Eastman Double-X 5222 cine-film
