What’s behind the corner?

Looks an antique photo, even if done today, due the total lack of modernity signs (wires, lights,…). A very narrow road on the S.¬†Giulio island (Orta Lake). The curve and the light at its end may also ideally raise questions about what’s behind it, adding some suspance to the picture.

Frosted leafs

The autumn is leaving space for the winter. One of the signs of this period is the little frost you can find over a carpet of leafs in a public garden. Of course you need to wake up early in the morning to take this kind of pictures, because the frost is very delicate, and it’s quickly melted by the normal temperature of the period.

Heavenly light

I was looking from home window during a heavy rain period, and among a shower and another, some sun rays peeped out through the clouds. They were looking to me like a sign of presence of a superior authority. I quickly took my camera and shoot this image.

Straight to the sky

Often we do not note how many things are just over our normal line of sight. If you try to leave the horizon out, just keeping what points directly to the sky, a different world appears. That’s what I’ve done with this picture, where what looks like envious signs of the human attempt to reach the sky remains in their inadequacy if compared with the target.
