A visual experience
Has tried to portray 5 of my pictures in classical elements of nature!
I believe our moods reflect the elements :)
Inspired from Deepa Mehta~!
From the recent Scot Kelby Photowalk
...Into this house were born - siamo nati in questa casa
Into this world were thrown - siamo stati gettati in questo mondo
Like a dog without a bone - come un cane senza un osso
An actor out on loan - come attori senza una parte
Riders on the storm - - cavalieri nella tempesta
Theres a killer on the road - c'è un assassino per strada
His brain is squirmin like a toad - (?) il suo cervello si dimena come un rospo
Take a long holiday - prenditi una lunga vacanza
Let your children play - fai giocare i tuoi bambini
If ya give this man a ride - se dai un passaggio a quest'uomo
Sweet memory will die - i bei ricordi spariranno
Killer on the road, yeah - assassino per strada
Girl ya gotta love your man - devi amare il tuo uomo
Take him by the hand - prenderlo per mano
Make him understand - fargli capire
The world on you depends - che il mondo conta su di voi
Our life will never end... - la nostra vita non finirà mai..

I told you this thing was getting epic, now I'm dragging strangers off the street to dance with me ;D
Kidding of course this is my buddy Paul (he has featured in my 365 before) he came to come and play, so I dragged his ass to the skate park and we danced :D
I'd say I out about 90% of the graffiti there, most of which is bits that I came across while I was in Rome :)
JUST DO IT!
The real sad thing about this photo, is that it was set up. Who really dances on the beach at sunset with their lover... just because. It's a shame we have to create these sort of scenarios just to show ourselves and others how much we're in love. Those truly in love would do this with no cameraman, no schedule and no motive. They'd do it, just because.
Please enjoy your weekend everyone. Enjoy the good times and move past the bad ones.

Work is defined as the energy expended when something is forced to move. It can be calculated using the equation work equals force multiplied by distance. In this image a can of tomato sauce is moved upward approximately four inches so technically work was done to the can. Taken with a Canon 35mm f/2 lens and enhanced with the Photoshop glowing edge filter.
Our Daily Challenge - Work - 1/24/11
This is quick shot of progress, if you can call it that, on this painting. The color of the "pipes etc." at the top of the red structure is too light in the shadow areas. The grassy area is too dark. Otherwise it's not bad. I've worked on just about everything since my last post of this one. Check out my notes.
Un particolare del lavoro in cartongesso che io e il mio compagno da tempo stiamo ultimando...

(soundtrack by David Gilmour - look out for guest players!!)
Thousand Islands park - (NY / U.S.A.): it's an area of literally more than one thousand islands on the St. Lawrence river. This is a castle built by a zillionaire in the European fashion. He also built a cottage for his mother-in-law... on another island!! (see the pic at the bottom)
Thousand Islands é un'area del fiume San Lorenzo, tra Canada e Stati Uniti (qui siamo dal lato U.S.A., Stato di New York), dove sono state identificate più di mille isole, isolette e isolotti (ossia: con almeno una casa o un albero sulla sua superficie). Questo castello é stato costruito alla moda europea da un multi-multi miliardiario (proprietario di non mi ricordo quale catena alberghiera) agli inizi del XX Secolo.
Tra l'altro, aveva fatto costruire un cottage per la suocera... su un'altra isola!! (v. foto in fondo)
Thousand Origami Cranes (千羽鶴, Senbazuru?) is a group of one thousand origami paper cranes held together by strings.
An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures (others include the dragon and the tortoise), and is said to live for a thousand years. In Asia, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family.
20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA "NAUTILUS" REPLICA
50th Anniversary Commemorative
Designed and Coordinated by Kevin Kidney & Jody Daily
Research by Richard Allsmiller
Sculptors: Richard Allsmiller & William Babington
Paint Master by Jody Daily
Cast Resin, Metal, on Wood Base
Released in Spring 2004. Limited Edition of 1000. © Disney
Our 1/96 scale replica of the Nautilus, is the most accurate representation ever offered by the Disney Company. Model builders William Babington
and Rich Allsmiller, who both have a strong affection for the subject
matter, constructed the model with painstaking attention to detail.
Allsmiller, an expert on 20,000 Leagues and the Nautilus, and who shared a
close friendship with its original designer Harper Goff, authenticated the model to
be as correct as possible.
to you all, since it is 20,000 visits I've got to my photostream in Flickr. Thanks to you all. To who I don't know (yet), to who I know, and to those who are quite close to me. Specially for the 20,000 smiles you gave me. Here is my hand for all of you.
a todos vosotros, ya que son 20,000 visitas a mis fotos en Flickr. Gracias a quienes no conozco (todavía), a quienes conozco, y a quienes estáis más cerca de mi. Espcialmente por esas 20,000 sonrisas que me habéis dado. Aquí está mi mano para todos vosotros.

I want to try to start experimenting more with artificial lighting and editorial style shoots, while still incorporating my conceptual style. On an unrelated note, this week has been exceptionally cloudy and foggy, and I have a lot of new work to share with you guys from the resulting shoots!
I think that this looks a little better on black.
Check out the close up of this that I posted on my Facebook page!
