Three photos – Three cities:
The long walk from Brixton to Sloane Square on a glorious Sunday in January, armed with camera and comfortable boots.
Stopping in Clapham Old Town for lunch, then off towards Battersea Park after a little pilgrimage to the place where I used to live the first time I came to London, many lifetimes ago.
Warming up with cappucino and pastries at the italian delicatessen on Lower Sloane Street, before taking the tube back home.
Waiting for the last train, in a cold night in January, what better way to spend the time, than taking photos of the deserted station?
A few shots from a short break in the Lake District that we had at the end of November last year (btw, Happy New Year everyone!).
We stayed at the Swan Hotel and Spa at Newby Bridge and had a fantastic time. Lots of walking, lots of eating and lots of swimming as well. The hotel has a lovely swimming pool and we made the most of it.
I usually don’t go for Spas, preferring cozy bed and breakfasts or self-catering, but this is an experience that I’d like to repeat.
At that time they were doing some work of restoration, and the fine material used to shield some of the areas, combined with the light filtering through the high windows, produced fascinating effects.
Enough to distracting me from admiring Caravaggio’s Madonna di Loreto.
I have collected so many Hipstamatic films and lenses, I don’t even remember what they are, how they look. So I devised a little project: to use a particular combination and use it for a whole day (or week, or whatever).
This is a little selection done with the Watts lens and Rock BW-11 film.
Not Rome actually, but close enough.
A few details from my parent’s home in the countryside of Genzano di Roma.
