Airborne In New York

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Weight(less)

The power of a my remote control, which allowed me to capture the exact moment I was airborne. But you know, gravity is working against me. So I have to tell you it didn’t last that long. Nonetheless, in this shot, I’m going to be forever weightless. Shot taken at the Lincoln Center, New York City, Empire State, US. December 2015


No Shit

In response to the Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Oops!”

It usually happens once in lifetime to get the chance to see one of the natural spectacles in the world. The Grand Canyon is one of them. Turned out the only day I had that chance, was a fucking unbelievably foggy day. At six out of the seven viewpoints along the South Rim, all I was able to see was a fucking white wall of fog.

No shit.

This shot was the one I could take at the last viewpoint, when finally I could get a glimpse of its magnificence.

Lost In Transition

Barcelona, August 2011

I have to say Barcelona isn’t my favorite city. But the second time I was there, wandering around the port I remembered the shot I took five years earlier, and I thought it might be fun repeated it. You know, to document the difference. I can tell you in 2011 I had five years of working out behind and in 2006 I hadn’t even started. I’m fairly certain you can’t tell any difference, so I’m starting to wonder if I’ve been wasting my time at gym. Other than that, the first shot was taken by my ex-ex girlfriend, and at that time I hadn’t started yet my solo traveling career. Instead I took myself the second shot during one of my first solo adventures. The only thing that didn’t change was the port and its boats in the background. I seem to be lost in thought. If you look at the big picture, I was lost in transition.

Treating Myself

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Treat.”

It might not sound as a compliment to myself, but I admit I’m a bit materialistic. That’s why I was very pleased when I got my new pair of Nike Zoom Pegasus. But resting on the shore of Lake Michigan, in front of Downtown Chicago, was the best part of it. And it felt so good. Shot taken in Chicago, Illinois, US. August 2015


Watch Out Man!

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Careful.”

Used to the Rome traffic I got to say I’m pretty confident wherever I go on this planet. Crossing streets where there are no traffic lights isn’t an issue. But always pay attention, too much self confidence might get you distracted. This is me, crossing Magazine Street. Shot taken in New Orleans, Louisiana, US. August 2015


The Symbol Of My City

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symbol.”

I could write millions of things about it. But the one I keep on thinking lately, it’s how much I miss the back old days as a kid, when me and my friends used to hang out inside at night, once we easily climbed over the fence. A mix of dark, quiet, and air that smelled of history. One of the best memories I got.


Dublin Doors

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Door.”

From time to time, people ask me what’s my favourite place in my city. Truth is, it’s unbelievably hard to pick one. Nonetheless, The Pantheon is one of the spots on the top of my list, which is pretty much endless by the way. That’s because it still amazes me how it’s still standing after 2000 years, emanating power, magnificence and beauty. A marvel of engineering students still study at colleges of architecture, it’s still the biggest concrete dome of the world. That’s why every time I’m around, I can’t help a shot.

Off Season

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Off-Season.”

I can’t think of anyone else so crazy to go visit Krakow in February. Nonetheless, hadn’t I been there off season, I couldn’t have been able to shoot a picture to its main landmark with no tourists around. Shot taken in Rynek Glowny, Krakow, Poland. February 2007
