#78 Chandelier bokehliscious

Not as much yellow as in other pics, but it is day 30 of yellow... I want other colors! Not happy with this image as it was taken indoors. I do not like to use the flash, but that leaves me with a longer exposure... did I bring my tripod? No. It is not something I carry with me everywhere. A soft focus is the result of my improvised work.

#77 Cinquecento

Finally my camera and the elusive yellow cinquecento met. Good thing my camera brought along her good friend the duaflex... Some TtV love for you.

#76 For ever

More locks left by lovers, this time on a fence by the lake. So many stories...

#75 Winter ride

A walk by the Varese lake took me to the closed carnival at Schiranna. I am atracted to the abandoned, the old, the used and forgotten objects around us. I let them tell me their implied story.

#74 Mostly sky

My first set of TtV (Through the Viewfinder) images. I finally made the contraption necesary to stop the glare. I use a Kodak duaflex II as my bottom camera, and my Nikon D40 to capture the image on the viewfinder. I don't have a macro lens, but the macro setting does a good job. I am very happy with my first images, more will come.

#73 I want to ride my bike, again

This image was captured in Milan during the Summer... I am missing the sun, the smell of flowers, and most of all, I am missing bikes.

The promise of spring covered in snow. These are the first flowers that bloom in my garden, I can't wait!

#71 Ordinary

A cloudy day, so the yellow is not as bright as it usually is. I see this house everyday on my way home, this is the first time that I found it interesting. It goes to show you that is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

#70 Wall

Just a simple close-up of a decaying yellow wall. Mother nature's art ways.

#69 Via Castello

The sun shinned for a little while this morning and I was ready!
This yellow? I adore this yellow, it is luscious and it brings the best of the shapes in the image. I like this composition, it is not the original one, some cropping occurred this afternoon... what can I say?

#68 Lock

In Italy lovers leave locks attached to verandas in beautiful locations, then they loose the key. It is a metaphor for ever after. This lonely lock is nothing of the sorts, a good image, that is what it is.

#67 Hazy sunset

Our daily dose of beauty reminds me that things are always espectacular even though it might not seem so. On those days when clouds hide the view, my job is to remember the clear days, even the hazy days...

#66 Yellow window

A somehow crooked window reflecting a little bit of the sunset sky. Yellow is everywhere; layers and layers of yellows...

#65 NYC twice

Mistakes are surprises, delightful surprises. I like the implied movement, the repetition. Now I have to learn to make it on purpose!

#64 NYC yellow

We had the opportunity to visit NY on our way back from Colombia. Six cold hours rushing through our favorite spots. The yellow cab came with us to its rightful place amongst all our nick nacks.

#62 Hide and seek

Yellow houses are plentiful in Italy... but sometimes they like to hide...

#60 Yellow in Arona

I'm back! It has been a month of greatness: family, friends, food! I miss you Colombia! I'm posting an oldie to get back, but tomorrow everything starts again.
