Pillars on the shore

I just began to process the roll of pictures I've taken two weeks ago. There's a subtle pleasure in doing this job as it allows me to see the subject of my takes from a different perspective. It might sound weird but after walking around, in search for the perfect shot, the moment of post-processing is the first big opportunity that we have to consciously and thoroughly observe our photographs. We don't have all that time when we shoot: we have to trust in our instinct. Point and shoot. And I always ask myself if I took all the pictures I wanted, in the way I wanted.

When I'm home and the photo processing tool is ready, then another question always comes in and stands behind the door: did I really want to take this picture?

(Needless to say, these pictures were NOT taken with my mobile)

belle immagini
E' un po' come nella fotografia analogica
Il momento della meditazione sul proprio lavoro avviene durante la fase dello sviluppo e stampa
buona domenica
