Playing War (Children from Balat)

Istanbul (Turkey). Today April 23rd is the Children’s Day in Turkey (Çocuk Bayramı). The country celebrates its children, and I think this is a wonderful tradition. I celebrate this special day with all my Turkish friends posting a photograph I captured two years ago during a walk around Balat, in Istanbul. I met these three children playing war: when I proposed them to pose for my camera, they did it in a way like “ok, but please be fast; we have to fight our enemy”. The huge contrast between their behaviour and their children’s eyes impressed me a lot. I found this photo quite symbolic: for this reason – once again – I use it to celebrate this important day: 23 Nisan Çocuk Bayramı kutlu olsun!!

Carrot Cake

Food photography is not an easy assignment. From one side, you must show that the product is “teasing”; from the other one, it must be as much real as possible. Furthermore, there’s the general composition… For this shooting, I agreed with the owner to choose a total white background and a minimal scene, in order to highlight the brown color of this carrot cake together with its ingredients (cinnamon, died fruit and walnuts). I think it is nice!

Dalmatian Fisherman in Lastovo

Lastovo (Croatia). I like walking along docks: I always bring a camera with me, and fishermen are one of my favorite subjects.

I met this men in Lastovo (the Italian name is Lagosta) and – no need to say – my attention was captured by the big fish (I think it was a snapper) and the man that was preparing it. Very close there are some good restaurants, and he was arranging the dinner for some customers (including myself). The clear sunlight of sunset was colouring the scene with a nice warm tone.

One curiosity: in Milan there’s a place named “Piazzale Lagosta“. I think it’s the same “Lagosta” of the Croatian “Lastovo”.
