During the traditional Festival of Fire, 7-8th September, in Recco (Genoa, Italy), the main spectacle is done by a lot of sequential explosion whose effect is something like “the end of the world”, the final explosion is something impossible to describe with simple words. It must be seen.

“One night wandering in the Everglades…” since I heard this strophe from “Dance Of Death” by Iron Maiden I always desired to visit such magical place. When the road, casually, brought us in Everglades City (200 souls) we had the luck to assist to a incredible, unforgettable, terrific sunset like this. A thunderstorm was incoming, the clouds were getting heavier and heavier, a flock of birds was flying far from it, toward the setting sun. And we were there, wandering in the Everglades. Pure magic.

This over-stocked cigar shop in Little Havana (Miami), made me regret my decision to quit smoking.

Due to the weather I had not the chance to shoot a Miami skyline by night. Waiting for the next opportunity I need to settle with a daily one. Good enough?

What happens when one plays with long exposition, HDR, neons, on Ocean Drive? Something really really ‘OVER’… My purpose was to capture the essence and the colors of the neon lights of this famous street, so I decided to exaggerate every trick I know then combine them in an explosion of everything.

A thunderstorm surprised me just few seconds after I finished to shooting the sunset in the Everglades, close to Everglades City. The lightnings were were so frequent, that I captured one of them freehand, no long exposition, no triggered shot. The event brought to my memory a sentence: “the concept of one shot, one photo.”

Out for shooting! Will be back soon with new shots! Stay Tuned!
