Barche vietnamite in Hoi An

Queste tipiche imbarcazioni in legno sono molto fotogeniche, soprattutto se guidate da una donna vietnamita con il tipico cappello conico. Ad Hoi An, lungo il fiume, se ne vedono molte e il momento migliore per fotografarle. è la mattina presto, quando i turisti in giro sono pochi e la luce è morbida e delicata. Per queste foto ho utilizzato, sulla Leica M typ 262, l’Elmarit 90mm, per isolare meglio il soggetto, eliminando ogni elemento di disturbo intorno. L’acqua del fiume come sfondo, […]

Vietnamese boats in Hoi An

These traditional wooden boats are very photogenic, especially if guided by a Vietnamese woman with traditional conical hat. In Hoi An, along the river, you can spot many of them, and the best time to photograph. is the early morning, when there are only few tourists around and the light is soft and delicate. For these photos I mounted, on the Leica M typ 262, the 90mm Elmarit f2.8, to better isolate the subject, eliminating any disturbance around. The green water […]

Storia di un ritratto ad una donna vietnamita

Sono in Vietnam, nella splendida cittadina di Hoi An, e ho deciso di prendere una bicicletta per esplorare la campagna e i villaggi lontani dal centro.

La scena mi sembra subito molto bella, naturale e semplice, ma è la donna al centro quella che subito attira tutta la mia attenzione. Prima cosa, osservo […]

Story of a portrait of a Vietnamese woman

Vietnam, in the ancient town of Hoi An, it’s a new day of my trip and I decided to take a bike to explore the countryside and the villages far away from the city. While cycling through a small fishing village, to my left, I see three people sitting in front of the front door, intent on repairing a long green fishing net. The scene seems just very nice, natural and simple, but is the woman at the centre that […]

Juana la loca, quality tapas in Madrid

Today we are Madrid, enjoying a fun day out, walking between “las callas” of the city. At the end of the day, at sundown, we’ve started to feel that’s relentless desire to eat tapas, those delightful snacks or finger food, typical of Spain, excellent for an aperitif but often abundant even for a dinner, accompanied perhaps with a good “vino tinto”. But, how to choose from the vast jungle of bars and restaurants and avoid the most tourist and low quality […]

Juana la loca, tapas di qualità a Madrid

Oggi siamo nella splendida Madrid, e dopo una lunga e divertente giornata in giro tra” las callas” della città, al calare del sole, ecco inesorabile arrivare la voglia di tapas, quei deliziosi stuzzichini, o finger food, tipici della Spagna, ottimi per un aperitivo ma spesso abbondanti anche per una cena, accompagnandoli magari con un buon vino tinto. Ma come scegliere tra l’immensa giungla di bar e ristoranti, evitando quelli più turistici e di bassa qualità? Ecco, tra i miei appunti […]
