beach moments

that one day when i headed to the beach with just my hasselblad and a roll of neopan acros (already in it)… and my kids decided to eat watermelon and the colors were just to die for.

exploring butrint

so much fun for the kids to climb up the ruins of this amazing place. wish i could have shot more film but the dangerous location had me chasing the kids around to make sure they stayed safe so i decided to stick to the digital camera after these shots.

oh alice. during our vacation you showered me with the drinks you insist on drinking out of open cups/glasses more times than you actually drank. i got mad. i know i’ll laugh about my jeans swimming in sprite about 1 hour from landing in zurich. we had been on that plane for 10 hours and i had slept none. my jeans dried while walking from one terminal to the other, to catch our connection to milan. people probably wondered how clumsy i must have been to have an entire leg wet.
but i love your need for independence. 😉

splash!

we would walk around beach almost every night until past sunset. it was amazingly relaxing. the kids loved to explore and throw rocks in the water (and occasionally get splashed by waves crashing on the shore). the beach is so different at night, when everyone is gone.

portraits of a summer afternoon

so we are back. it was an amazing month. filled with adventures and a lot of memories. yesterday i started developing some film. only got through two rolls before i became the afternoon jetlag victim. will get through the other 4 rolls soon. the bazillion color film rolls i shot will hopefully be mailed out today.

a word to my kids.

oh roberto, i have no idea how you were born so allergic to the camera. hope that changes soon.
love,
(very frustrated) mommy

alice, i love you. but you have to stop moving so fast, because manual focus ain’t that easy.

snaps from milan

drago verde. these things are so typical of milan but slowly disappearing, city renovation after city renovation. i really wanted to take a picture of one on our last visit. this was in parco sempione.

bits from tahoe

these are from back in april. first two shot on kodak portra 400, which turned really weird. i don’t think i checked if it was expired but either that or it wasn’t kept in a very cool place. plus, i see a light leak.

these two were shot on fuji pro 400h. i love the crisp look of snowy photos! (ignore the invasive watermark. long story short, some photo thieves have been really interested in photos of my children so I try to make them as useless as possible by marking right on their faces, mostly when i post on their blog www.piudue.it)

my snow bunny was so tiny.
