If Mayas were right, I won’t even see the apocalypse coming, as busy as I am with all the deadlines and events in my jobs! I’m constantly on the move and I don’t see it ending anywhere before Christmas, driving from multiple locations for meetings, document writing, experiments and shootings. Put in the mix a city now hostage of its own, brutal traffic of people wandering around in the search of good offers for the tens of presents they are supposed to buy, and you’ll see how it happens that, today, my only free time was, indeed, while driving in the traffic.
I was moving so slowly on via Cristoforo Colombo, the artery of the southern neighborhood EUR, the major connection of the whole south of the city (and whatever stays southerner) with the center and its nice shops, that I could actually wait till I got to the perfect position to shoot this scene with the right, frontal perspective. I liked the colors, the lights, and the three people having a conversation in this cold(ish) December evening.
Now, if everything goes according to the plans (and the ongoing actions), by the first of January I should be less involved (and busy) with my research job so to devote more time (and energy) into my photography job. Things here are going fine, some days even more than fine, so I finally decided to give it a (proper) try. Fingers crossed, but not too much, since till December ends I’ll need all of ten of them to work rapidly on keyboards, since I still have a lot of documents to write!
