“In nova fert animus mutatas dicere formas”

("I intend to speak of forms changed into

new entities")

                               —Ov., Met., Book I

The photo shoot of Metamorphoses took place in New York during a short two day trip in June 2013.

"Metamorphosis or transformation is a unifying theme amongst the episodes of the Metamorphoses by Roman poet Ovid. There is a variety among the types of transformations that take place: from human to inanimate object, from animal and fungus to human, from immature to adult, of sex, and texture and color."

Venice is great for photographers. Well, all Italy is full of pictorial historical places, landscapes, people, but Venice has it all together as well as the uniqueness of having all the traffic down the channels on water, hundreds of bridges and islands, thousands of boats. The architecture is like nowhere else with houses rising straight from the water. Corrosion from the constant unavoidable moisture destroys buildings, but creates beautiful colors. This is the best city for walking, since there are no cars, no traffic lights or signs, and pedestrians have all the streets for themselves.

Midland & 30,000 Islands

We had been delaying our trip to Lake Huron (Ontario, Canada) for a few weeks, but on the Thanksgiving long weekend the weather finally declared the beginning of Indian Summer and I recharged butteries for my camera. We made a reservation in Super 8, a nice new motel motel in Midland - a small town located on Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada

The Duomo (The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore) – one of the most magnificent architectural creations I have seen. The church exterior is decorated with the white, green and pink marble in very original Florentine style that can’t be found anywhere else, as far as I know. The Duomo had been built in 1296-1436.
The building is enormous. It occupies many blokes of the city and rises over all of the buildings as Gulliver surrounded by lilliputs. 4 million bricks were used in the construction.
Find people on the next pictures to get the scale of the place.

Holiday in Rome, Part 1

We crossed the Atlantic Ocean landing in Rome, dropped our luggage at the hotel, had a quick bite at the quite restaurant around the corner, and began our 6 day journey in the city of 2700 years of history.
The hotel was only 10 minutes walk to St. Peter’s Basilica, a great door to Vatican. A beautiful view was opening on the basilica from the Cavour bridge.
