There are moments in history when we must very carefully chose our heroes. We have to be careful to not transform victims in heroes and vice-versa. Victims need to have justice, but heroes deserve to be remembered and be honored as examples for our lives. hero:1. a person who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. victim:1. a person harmed, injured, or killed as a result of a crime, accident, or other event or action. If we confuse the terms and forget the values that make a person a hero, we will have more and more victims. To have no victims we need real heroes to follow. . . . If you want to read the great story of Placid Lassie, take a look at the Tunison Foundation website. See you next time! .
There are cameras that remained the preferred, no matter if other cameras were better with more options. For me the Pentax MX is that camera.I used many cameras and some of them gave the possibility to do more things than the MX, but still, when I take the MX in my hands and I hear the click, something gives me the desire to take pictures. . . See you soon with the Pentax LX!
A couple of days ago I was reading the news here in Italy and I read a title that made me think: “The USA cancel the 4th of July”. The fight against Covid is not just a medical fight but a political one. To make mistakes in communication at this moment is perhaps more dangerous in the long term than making medical mistakes. . . . See you the next time! .
Slowly the Italian Covid jail is reopening and we are back to normal, included the normal absurdities of this country. A news in Italy was able to stay on the first page, even in front of Covid. Here my photographic answer! For the details watch the video, this time is very short and nudity is involved. Please note the irony, to pass a freedom message I had to censor the nipples in this video cover and thumbnail so social media will not censor my post. At least, here on this page I’m still free to show the beauty of the nude human body! . . . Until the next one… listen to Rodney Carrington hymn to freedom 😉 . .
From Italy in COVID lockdown another weekly tale. The perception of an image can deeply change when a psychosis is affecting an entire country. . . . See you next week and I hope from a better situation! .
Another week and another print from the Italian COVID-19 insulation. President Trump made a great tweet to express his sympathy to Italians during this difficult situation. Here is my personal answer. A little edit of my post after few days. Sadly in this world, specially in Italy, if I simply state that this is “my personal answer” to a tweet by President Trump, people wrongly assume it will be a polemic or negative answer before they even watch the video. So here the message to be clear: I love the USA and I really appreciated President Trump tweet!!! . . . Take a look at my Thunderbirds’ Portfolio here. Keep the fight for health and freedom my friends! See you next week! .
A little tale and some considerations about Corona Virus in Italy. Many friends from the USA asked me about how I’m dealing with the COVID-19 and how is the situation in Italy, so I chose a print that expressed how I’m used to deal with situations limiting my freedom of movement. . . . Follow me here on the blog if you like to have some first hand updates about the Corona virus in Italy. . UPDATE ABOUT CORONAVIRUS IN ITALY – 8th of March 2020 A lot change since I made the video, so I will try to do a daily update of the situation. I will keep this out of the Black and White Tale project to not infect it with the virus and the total craziness going on in Italy right now. .
