No good resolutions, just acts. That’s my challenge for this newborn year.
I started with the one thing that I lamented the most, of not having shot around my city a lot and consequently not enriched our The Lonely Walkers tlog. It’s not always easy to look at the streets you walk everyday with fresh eyes, so last week I happily accepted an invitation from a friend and colleague of mine to go out a night and photograph at Luci d’Artista, Christmas lights all around Torino central streets made by famous artists.
It was lot of fun strolling around the city, laughing and taking pictures. It turned out to be a kind of improvised workshop, and I am glad I have helped my friends learn a bit more about photography.
These are some shots from that night.
Porta Palazzo and beautiful colourful reflections on the wet pavement.
A sea of lights over Piazza Palazzo di Città.
The sun is always shining…
Reflections of Piazza Carignano on my favourite bookshop window.
Detail of the light installation in Piazza Carignano.
It obviously was a good excuse to photograph more than just Christmas light installations, and be inspired.
Mysterious masks in the old University.
Colours flowing on the river Po
And here the four of us almost at the end of our peculiar excursion, exhausted but happy.
