Swans of the cobalt blue lake
This is my vision of Lake Garda in Lazise, (verona) This photo represents my vision of lake, with these two swans that look like a couple of young lovers fleeing from something that comes, perhaps from the deep darkness of the lake or maybe from the frost that surrounds it. I took this picture almost casually and did not expect to grab these two animals in this perfect pose just as they step off from the water surface.
Author: I do not consider myself a photographer, really, I am not. I use photography as a means of communication and many times not to say something to others but to remember something myself. Having a "frame" of your worldview as you know it now, as you saw it two, five or twenty years ago is something precious! Time passes and memories run and fade away, replaced by the new "frames" of everyday’s life. It is very important to have clear, definite awareness of one’s own life. It means having pillars on which to support my knowledge today, in the present. I never did the "photographer's job", weddings, village festivals ... I do not think I can do such a thing, I find it too difficult to make pictures that please others. I like to make photos to people on the street, even without being seen, then i show them a couple of photo and often i send them some photos by email. I really like to say that I started to "shoot" almost accidentally. The first shots that led me to think of photography as a means of communication, have been made with a poor quality cell phone, received as a gift from my friend. I started taking photos a bit 'more seriously after a friend of mine gave me a Canon 40D. For last four years i live in Tuscany (Italy), and In this moment i work like the audio - video technician.
