Morning mist

Early morning, going to work driving in the Asti area, the first silent mists were all around me. I decide to stop briefly to take some pictures. In my mind the evanescence of the far background, the few trees in the middle and the soft sunlight render well the idea of the upcoming autumn season.

Underground hallway

I took this picture inspired by the silence of the moment and the aluminium of the chair, a solitary presence in a solitary hallway. I think this description is a bit emblematic about some aspect of modern life.

I was tempted to convert the picture in B/W, but looking better I found the general “champagne” tonality of the image, which has anyway very few colors, appealing with this dominance, so I choose to keep it as is.

Sunrise among poplars

Travelling to Milan on the highway I was looking to the autumn sunrise. When I saw on the side a poplar field, I quickly stopped to take this risky photo with the sun among them. Why risky? Because the poplar are thin, and the wind easily move them, so a multiple HDR shot means having some ghosts in the image. If you look carefully, you can see them. They can be corrected, of course, but I found that they gave to the image some kind of 3D appearance, so I left them.

The new Remote Heating Plant built in the center of Turin (close to the Politecnico technical University), where it’s functionality is coupled with an urbanistic and architectural project. Mostly built in steel, it has a futuristic appearance.
