Lately I have been trying to re-descover Torino, and walk through its streets with different eyes. After a funny night walk to capture Christmas light installations, this time I spent a whole afternoon walking through its parks, alone with some good music and my camera.
Torino is a green city. It has some beautiful and quite big parks, especially along the river Po. You can walk for hours and even forget to be in a city, which makes it a lot more relaxing and pleasant.
That day the river was flowing slowly and peacefully, dictating the rhythm of my steps, and a timid winter sun played along with the water, the trees and the last remnants of snow.
I enjoyed my long promenade so much that I almost forgot to shoot. Sometimes it’s good to let your camera down, and just rest the eyes and mind. Yet, I took home some photograph of this not very much known side of Torino.
The Lonely Walkers photo project is slowly growing. It takes time and patience, as our cities unveil its secret sides only when our eyes are ready to see their beauties.
