Ed's dream

…at the right moment of the day, when the light of the sky perfectly matched the paint on the hut.

Canary Warf underground station

It has been a long wait before I edited and uploaded this picture, but apparently it was worth it, since it has been accepted in the iStock Vetta collection.

I took the picture about three years ago with a Mamiya C220 that I do not own anymore. Because of the recognizable people, I never considered it suitable for stock. However, it seems that with the years I grew better at editing, and so I managed to realistically blur the people out.

Oh, by the way… I also grew tired of busy London, and today I would have not chosen Canary Wharf as a destination for a day out.

Una cava nei dintorni di Pisa

Con molto ottimismo, l’estate scorsa mi avventurai, a stento protetto dall’aria condizionata dell’auto, attorno a Pisa. Fui premiato da questa scena che mi affrettai a divorare con la mia Mamiya C220.


The Britons have a funny way of calling their plumbers.

Today the station toilet (New Eltham, of course) was “out of order”, and a notice politely said that “an engineer has been called”.

E` dura il mestiere dell’ingegnere, qui – dell’ingegnere vero, dico. Bisogna ch’io trovi un’altra parola per fare capire (o per cercare di far capire) cosa faccio. Senza offesa, ma non sono un idraulico.

I went into the woods…

I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life…to put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. ~Henry David Thoreau

Andai nei boschi per vivere con saggezza, vivere con profondità e succhiare tutto il midollo della vita, per sbaragliare tutto ciò che non era vita e non scoprire, in punto di morte, che non ero vissuto (John Keating tratto da Walden, vita nei boschi di Henry David Thoreau).
