55/365(+1), a photo by Luca Rossini on Flickr.

Lens: Voigtlander color-skopar 35mm f2.5
Camera: NEX-7, ISO1600, f2.5, 1/13, raw

I happen to be quite a touchy person. I know that sucks, but there’s not really much I can do about it. I am opened to opinions and views sensibly diverging from mine, but if anyone attacks me personally I quickly become a super bitch. This is probably my worse fault.
So, you can imagine how bitchy I can get when some useless prick who shoots kitties, puppies, and plain sunsets, the kind of genius that feels poetic by getting a macro of a smoked cigarette or of a rotten glove over the concrete, well, when he (sorry guys, but girls do not act so stupidly), attacks one of my photos. The daily retarded is a guy who suddenly realized that the world is a mess because it is not aware of his opinions, and obviously felt the urge to shout them in my face, in the form of an angry comment to my Happy Easter pic (you’ll find it on Flickr, if you like). I would spend the rest of the day kicking him in his nuts. I get this kind of bitchy.
The daily shot has nothing to do with all of this. Tonight is full moon (maybe pricks get all geniuses as werewolves get beasties?). The moon rose behind the buildings and the trees of my neighborhood, right in front of my living-room. I was stuck cradling Agata to sleep, so I couldn’t change lens, or use a tripod, or even open the window. But I wanted to capture the mood. So I did my best to compose the shot with the 35mm, high ISO, and the reflections of the living-room. I like the result, the superimposition of in (home) and out (street, sky, night), the three layers of colors (the sky is blue, the building is yellow, the tree and the parking slots are green) and the textures. Sometimes limits can drive you to different perspectives and unexpected results.

  1. Well,

    As a photographer who shares his works online, one is always in the vulnerable place of being harshly critiqued by strangers. I don't know what he said, but if it was a mere “dislike” comment, that is life.

    However, if he went out of his way to attack the photographer's skills, he shouldn't be banned from Flickr. And as always, if you have nothing to say, good or bad that isn't disrespectful, don't just spout BS I guess.

    Anyhow, have a good weekend.

    1. Hi, thanks for your kind comment 🙂
      well, it wasn't a dislike, I can live with that. But I spent already too much time and energy on this thing, so I would prefer not to go in any more details…
