Roma, il Mondo

the World / le Monde

Global Glowball Glowing In The Wind

for Kal

* * * * *
I am not able nor interested in setting scenes.
To me, photography is a matter of discovering already existing yet unseen visual meanings.
Research, more than illustration of some a priori concept.
Photography, the capability to notice the existent and its richness.
A matter of information, more than art.

Photography is to challenge the information noise, the nonsense around us.
A matter of chance, with its immense creative power.
To say it in one word, a matter of luck.

Luck, the mysterious quality sensitive individuals have.

I went today to get my midday coffee, with Kal's photo in my mind,
and noticed that set.
It was existing, yet non-existing before I saw it.

Yes, I must admit I am rather lucky, the humble photojournalist that I am ;-)

Oh my, the power of influence. Maybe it is in the wind, carried accross the sea..a wisp, a touch, a
breath,and then it is there. Glowbally enlightening, and the image;-)K

Yes, Ann said it well. A good photo must have a strong incredibility ratio inside.
Incredibility is information, all in all.

Yes,you are a (very)lucky man.

Makes me homesick for the old,
gone (& rotten) Chinese culture.

Luca, with your "Xiang-Qi vs Chaturanga" you win 1000 PBase points for the best comment till now.
Thank you.

Great shot! Nice meating between cultures. The light is great!

A Chinese lantern facing a European street lamp...a harmony exists between two cultures.

Zainudin, thank you for your "constructive criticism".
But if you were familiar with my work you'd know that the triangle of "free sky" in the corner is
the signature mark I put in most of my photos...

I am so attracted to this image. The two light source are well composed and filled up the space. You
have also included the the place, is it at Lot 234 Il Mondo? Probably you should clone out the light
at the left bottom. TQ.

I left my vote for this image. ~V~

Alem, by your photos you seem a very lucky man.
Like Kal, by the way ;-)

love the "wind"... it really makes the glowball turning like the world. Or like the fortune. Today
for you, tomorrow for me, Adal (well, I hope...) ;-)
