Someone in Google+ today asked me if it was possible to see a shot of Stinky looking straight at the camera. So this morning I went outside and I did as instructed. Problem is that Stinky is not just a very thoughtful cat but also very very lazy....This was the most attention I could get out of him.....
Have a great weekend friends!!

Hi everyone :)
As some of you may recall we just went to UK where I finally had my PhD viva (everything went well and thanks to everyone for the support) and then to celebrate we headed to Disneyland Paris. Everything was going well until the second to the last night when Luna (my youngest daughter) fell down from the bed and broke her collarbone badly.......As you can guess she wasn't a happy bunny, especially 'cause she missed her last day in Disney, poor girl. Anyway, she is now slowly recovering even though the bone's fragments don't seem to heal as well as we had hoped, at least she got to miss the first 10 days of school that should be enough to make up for the day she missed in Disney :)
Also in the last few days I have been quite busy setting up my Google+ account. I have to recognise that G+ has some good potential for photography, in just 4 days I got 1800 followers!!
If any of you already has a G+ account or think about making one in the future this is the link to my profile page in case you want to add me:
Have a good day everyone, it feels good to be back and I'll make sure to visit your streams soon.

A quick visit and a shot from the archives to celebrate my PhD viva that went very well :) Thanks for all the support my friends!!!
And the choice of the subject is not casual considering that to celebrate we are headed to Disneyland Paris!

Today I am sad because this week-end will basically be my last summer week-end (even though temperatures here in Sicily are supposed to stay well above 30C for a few weeks more...).
September in fact is going to be super busy with my final PhD viva the 9th and a few project and manuscripts to finish before the end of the month. Summer is already a blurred hazy memory for me......
At least I hope that you, my friends, will still have lots of nice summer moments, taking photos and just enjoying yourselves.

Stitch is a very thoughtful kitten :)
This was taken with my new/old Hexanon AR 50mm f1.7, the first of an "unfortunately" long list of legacy lenses that I will have the pleasure to try out in my Sony NEX-3 in the coming months. Considering that this was taken wide open at f1.7, I am quite happy with the lens (sharpness and bokeh are good enough for me).

Going around Sicily with our little/big Volkswagen Westfalia Joker T3.
If you haven't ever woken up watching the sun rising through the little window in the roof, listening to the sound of the waves, in some remote beach, you have been missing something really beautiful :)
Have a great Friday my friends!
Just testing the high iso capacity of my new camera.
And getting kicked by my wife when she'll see this :P "Oh but look at my hair....how did you dare!!"
Have a great Thursday my friends!

I don't usually compose my shots like this but in this case I thought it was working fine.
I didn't manage to focus well but we were "travelling"; on a huge 4wd truck driven by a madman :)

I particularly like this "portrait" of a singing white wagtail that I took during our recent trip to Finland. More than anything I like its almost melancholic mood.....at least this is the feeling that it gives to me :)
