As Winter is in full force, with gloomy and cold days, I recalled the late August day I visited the Cambridge University Botanic Garden.
While we’re officially headed for the colder months of the year, I flicked through the pictures taken during a break this Summer.
From blue to yellow, here are some snapshots of Portsmouth during the Victorious Festival.
Being already content with the pictures made with Helios-44M lens on the Canon DSLR, I wasn’t expecting to see the surprising results I had with the same lens on the Fuji X-T20.
The level of details and smoothness are amazing. The camera’s manual focus is clever, easy to use and I look forward to use this magic combination more.
While the autumnal colours are still my favourites, the flourishing plants in the garden are a feast for the eyes.

For months, almost daily, I took pictures with my mobile phone of my commute to work. Some of them are published on my Instagram account. I wanted to have a recollection of the views, always the same but always changing.
Having started working for a company in Cambridge in July, and commuting every day with my bicycle, I saw the opportunity to take pictures.
Bringing a camera with me was never the best solution, therefore I relied on my iPhone. For months, almost daily, I published photos of my commute on my Instagram account, tagging them #mycommute and #onmybicycle.
Same views, different times of day, different seasons. Actually, I never stopped taking pictures, so this has become an ongoing project.
The commute involves going through Ditton Meadows and Stourbridge Common, along the river Cam. On my way, I’m often slowed down by cows, and gladly so. It gives me the opportunity to take in the views, the details, the change of seasons. I was never going to be very fast anyway, so better get the most out of it.
With this post I’m publishing the project, starting with the photos taken during the Summer months.

Starting 12 December 2016, until 22 January 2017, one of my photos is part of the Hot Numbers Open Exhibition in Cambridge.
