Photographing Around Me / Photos by Bernardo Ricci Armani / Thu, 22 Jun 2017 16:15:12 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Landscape of Marrakech Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:03:00 +0000 Marrakesh (Morocco). One of the things I loved most about Marrakesh: the contrast between the old buildings in the Medina, and the minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque. The firsts are decadent, without any sort of order, with parabolic antennas on the top which bring the…]]> 0 Traffic On the Canal Grande in Venice Fri, 16 Jun 2017 13:42:14 +0000 Venice (Italy). I actually have almost 120 photos ready to be published here in my blog, but I’m posting less than one of them per week. I don’t know why, perhaps I’m in a phase in which I feel I do not have too much to say.…]]> 1 Long Time No See (Roofs of Florence) Sat, 03 Jun 2017 13:42:15 +0000 Florence (Italy). Long time no see, Florence: I have been quite busy, but I still love you don’t worry. Long time no see, my dear camera: if I have not been bringing you with me for long time, it’s because there was nothing to photograph.…]]> 1 Bottom-Up View (Edison Building Staircase) Fri, 12 May 2017 10:06:23 +0000 Milan (Italy). As already said, I’m too busy in this period to go around with my camera and take photos. And it’s frustrating! But I always have a camera in my raincoat’s pocket – a Ricoh GR, such a great toy! Days ago, before going…]]> 0 Piazzetta Di Brera (Francesco Hayez) Thu, 11 May 2017 07:00:44 +0000 Milan (Italy). Sunday afternoon walk around home… Piazzetta di Brera is a hidden corner close to the famous Brera Museum. The statue represents the famous artist Francesco Hayez, which lived in the XIX century and was also professor at the Brera Academy Milano. Camminata pomeridiana…]]> 0 Roofs of Venice, With the St. Mark Campanile and Basilica Wed, 10 May 2017 16:43:48 +0000 Venice (Italy). Sad. But true. I’m clearly neglecting my blog. Personal engagements are putting the creation of new posts in low-priority mode, and even photographing – one of the things I love the most – is a memory (or at least I’m photographing the works…]]> 0 Urban Spaces (MUDEC) Tue, 25 Apr 2017 16:06:22 +0000 Milan (Italy). From a window at MUDEC (Museo delle Culture – or “Museum of Cultures” in English) in Milan. I found this glimpse quite interesting, and representative of Milan today: it’s an eye on a former city’s industrial area, which has been totally renovated and today…]]> 0 In Line (Psycoselfie) Mon, 24 Apr 2017 14:22:17 +0000 Milan (Italy). The title can be interpreted horizontally and vertically… Being in line is boring, but when there’s such an interesting wall in front of you, time can be used in a better way. This is what I did yesterday, waiting to enter at the…]]> 0 Efes and Tofas (Hidirellez at Ahirkapi) Sat, 22 Apr 2017 17:37:41 +0000 Istanbul (Turkey). A black and white photo taken some years ago (it was 2013) during a Hidirellez nigh photo-walk around Ahırkapı, a district of Istanbul near Sultanahmet (in the Fatih municipality). Hidirellez commemorates the arrival of spring and is a religious holiday for the Alevi community. It…]]> 0 Turkish (De)Lights (Suleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul) Wed, 19 Apr 2017 10:32:24 +0000 Istanbul (Turkey). Few minutes only just to share a photograph I found last night in my archive, and which dates back to 2011. It’s the beautiful chandelier at the Suleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul, one of the most beautiful sites in the old town of Sultanahmet.…]]> 0
