Shutter Hub Open Exhibition 2017 At Retina Photography Festival

I am excited and honoured to announce that my photo The Day I Glimpsed Inside Your Soul will be part of the Shutter Hub Open Exhibition 2017, at the Retina Scottish International Photography Festival.

The Day I Glimpsed Inside Your Soul
The Day I Glimpsed Inside Your Soul
The photo tells the story of thousands of people who walked through the gate of Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Oranienburg, on the outskirts of Berlin.

Sadly, for too many of them it was a one way journey. Others were lucky enough to live through it. My husband’s grandfather was one of them.

He managed to escape from the camp, a few weeks before the Red Army stormed into Berlin. Without looking back, he started the long journey that eventually brought him back home in Italy, after five years of imprisonment.

The photo tells a personal story too, of a grandchild retracing his grandfather’s steps, from the train station through the gate, imagining the horror, the fear, the cold. The chill still painfully palpable.

Both men turned their back to the gate and never looked back, 71 years apart.

The exhibition runs from 1st – 30th of July 2017, in beautiful Edinburgh.

That Day On The Pier

After almost exactly one year, I’ve been back visiting the Adriatic sea. A series of favourable elements made it a good long week end.

Family, friends, good food, good weather.

Wind, waves, beautiful colours, relax.

Purple and Orange

There have been a lot of changes since my last post with photos of flowers and plants in my garden.

The Spanish Bluebells flowered.

For the first time since we moved here – almost two years ago – our Photinia × fraseri ‘Red Robin’ flowered too.

The Helios-44M’s bokeh is perfect for shooting flowers and plants, and I can’t seem to get enough of it.

Lunch time with the Helios-44m

I’m pretty pleased by the results of the Helios-44M, and by the fact that I can easily bring the camera to work without carrying too much weight.

Today I went for a quick stroll around the Science Park in Cambridge, found out there’s more than one pond and took some pictures.
