Today, 21-SEP-2014, Francesco Fornabaio, airshowman, pilot and poet, died in an accident during an airshow in Venice. This is the last photo that I took of him, one week before the mishap, and there will not be other more. It’s not the best one I have of him, but it’s the last, so this is my tribute to him. Requiescat in pace, Francesco.

“El Capitan” rock in France

I was wandering in Haute Provence – South of France, when I found this beautiful mountain. It remebered me the famous “El Capitan” rock in Yosemite National Park (this one is smaller, anyway) and the Ansel Adams images, so I stopped and found a good location where take this shoot, of course in black and white like the Master.This is a tribute to him and his art.
