Un giro tra le luci di Natale in Lussemburgo

Passeggiare di sera a Dicembre, in Lussemburgo, con il freddo che sferza le mani e la faccia, non è sicuramente cosa semplice ma, con una Leica SL in borsa, è sicuramente una buona occasione per provare a catturare l’atmosfera natalizia fatta di luci, suoni e baite in legno dei caratteristici mercatini di Natale. Ed ecco qui qualche scatto fatto con l’ottimo Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–90 f/2.8–4 ASPH, una lente importante per dimensioni, ma dalla qualità decisamente alta, anche in condizioni di […]

Fun at Madame Tussauds in London, with a Leica Q

Last week I was in London for a pleasure trip with my sister and my nephew who had never been in the city before. Of course, it’s been a touristic stay, visiting the classic sightseeing, including the famous Madame Tussauds, where the waxworks of famous and historic people and also popular film character are exposed. I was not planning to do serious photography there, I mean, with my Leica Q, but only souvenirs snaps with the iphone. But, wait a moment… […]

Milano, street life – A collection of pictures, with a Leica SL

Milano, here we are! It took me almost 13 years before I could come back to the city where I’ve studied and lived for three years, from years 2003 to 2006. I have to admit, I’m not a fan of this city, but I cannot ignore the fact that is the only real big city in Italy, undoubtedly, the only city with a vibrant and dynamic life that flows between its streets. Comparing to 13 years ago, Milano has grown […]

Sneak preview of my photo shooting in the forest of Luxembourg

A sneak preview of the photo shooting I had today, totally immersed in a beautiful forest somewhere in Luxembourg. A very special place that seems to be coming out of a fairytale. Autumn is definitely the best time of the year to enjoy the green areas all over the country. The nature shows so many shades of warm colours and the underwood is full of different types of mushrooms. Guess, where am I?

I traded my Leica lens for another…Leica lens

A new lens is in my bag as for today, but this time, for the sake of my bank account, I’ve not spent any cents. Yeah, it is possible, even for a Leica lens. How can? Easy peasy, I traded one of my Leica lenses for another…Leica lens. An M for an R. Bad or good deal? mmh, to me, for now, very good, but will see in the future… Anyhow, one of my trusted shops here in Luxembourg, Fototrade, showed […]

My new old lens, promising a special bokeh: the Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Oreston 50mm f1.8 (test image gallery)

You know, I have a true passion for old vintage lenses and one of the reasons why I recently switched to the Leica SL is because this camera allows me to use almost any existing lens from the past. I own already several vintage lenses, but not only for collection purpose. Anytime I prepare my bag for a trip around the world, I open my box and I chose one or two vintage lens to carry with me. The advantage of a […]

Discorvering Cordova, photos and useful tips – Andalusia on the road

The third stop of my trip on the road to Andalusia is the historic city of Cordova, serenely lying along the Guadalquivir river and at the foot of the Sierra Morena. In contrast to the most dynamic Granada and Seville, Cordoba is in fact very quiet. Life around the majestic Mezquita and in the alleys of the Jewish quarter of Juderia, named World Heritage by Unesco, runs at a mild and quiet pace. Cordova in one day? Yes, the city of […]

20 street photos of the lovely Hoi An, Vietnam

Today I take you outside for a pleasant walk through the elegant and colorful streets of Hoi An, Vietnam. Declared UNESCO World Heritage Site as a well preserved southeastern commercial port, this small city has been subjected to influences by foreign settlers such as Portuguese, Dutch, Indian, Chinese, and Japanese. In fact, the delightful historical center, in addition to having a strong Vietnamese atmosphere, shows a unique fusion of local tradition and foreign influence. Chilling around with a Leica M […]
