Stratford and Olympic village through my lens.

London for a photographer is fascinating because you will never get bored with it. There is always somewhere to go, something to shot, something to discover about the big city.

I have never been in northeast London and Stratford was a great discovery and I enjoy walking through the Olympic area full with people jogging, walking, dads with their kids. Full of life, no matter was early in the day. The area is still booming since the London Olympic Games with loads of building and improvements all around.

Walking through Westfield feels like to be into another city. Coffee shop, barbers, shops and so much to view.

London Stadium it’s massive, the aquatics centre it’s a beauty of curves and lines play in harmony with the early sun.

The Hertford Union Canal has been an interesting exploration too up and down discovering nice spots and situations to frame, bicycles, chairs, reflections and so much more to end with a walk at Victoria Park and all around back to Stratford station.

Clapham here and there.

If you are like me, loving wake up in the morning when the sun is rising and get out of the bed to spend an early walk through the city you will appreciate these photos I took last week in Clapham. I always blame myself for setting the alarm too early. The first eye open and the other is thinking about it. You realise it should be time to move on, one leg after the other but they move slowly just because I’m still not entirely convinced if should I wake up and go out.

But then when I’m out there a really nice walk through the fresh air of the morning, the early touch of the sunlight on your face that is still sleepy, change everything somehow. Shoot after shoot your senses come to life, your attention to details focused and then you start to enjoy the day and the empty streets, that slowly are getting busier. Earlier commuters going to work, trucks delivering foods and whatever shops need for the day ahead. Life is rising.

Clapham is a wonderful area of London, just south of the river and you can’t love it. It’s full of gorgeous shops, coffee bars etc.

Let have a look at some photos I took back last week and I hope you’ll enjoy them.

P.S. I’m still working on my writing, grammar and English but I hope that these posts are starting to make sense to you.

Italy. It’s just beautiful. Part TWO

Memories, postcards, people walking around you taking photos. In this second part of my post dedicated to my beautiful country, I want to take you around Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino and Camogli. Colours are all around you when you walk to Portofino. Blue, yellow, green. The smell of the sea, the sound of waves smashing against the rocks and on the beach.

When you walk just above the road that leads to Portofino for the first time you wonder what you would get once you there. There is this gorgeous path under the trees and you walk through shadows, sun shining over your head. It’s so beautiful. Then when you get there you see what’s all about.

Tourist everywhere looking around for the best spot to frame in their memories shoot on their latest smartphones. All the restaurants that 1 hour earlier were all empty with the waitresses wondering if at least one person will guest at their table, are now busy taking care of the customer. Spaghetti and seafood. This is it. This is the only thing you want to eat there right? Portofino in its small building and spaces it’s so gorgeous, romantic and it still looks a postcard of memories from the ’50s.

But Portofino is not the only pearl. Camogli it’s also a wonderful place. To be fair you can be surprised from this small beautiful corner on the sea.

I talked too much right now. Let’s enjoy some pictures now.
