Slow travel: from Luxembourg city to Mola di Bari, Puglia by train ( with a Leica Q)

Finally, It is time to be on the road again, or, in this case, on the rails… Yes, indeed, this time I’ve decided to start my journey at a much slower pace. because I want to enjoy and feel it.

When and how the idea was born

Before getting on board for my next long distance trip (I’ll tell you where soon…), I have few days free and I need to reach my hometown, Mola di Bari, in the south of Italy. Of course,  by instinct, the first thing I would do is to go to Ryanair website and book a direct flight that in only 2 hours will bring me home.

Let it snow, Luxembourg!

The first snow arrived tonight in Luxembourg and this morning everything was covered by a soft white layer.  I always have my camera with me and I could not resist while driving to the office: I want to capture it!

Of course, the trees and the rooftops are scenic, but I wanted to find something different. I was attracted by an old-fashioned roulotte, selling Christmas trees, not so far from where I live.

The minivan was totally immersed in this white scenario and just in front of it, there were suspended small lights that make the whole scenario cosier.

I also “used” a girl with an umbrella just crossing by, to add some life and dynamics, but keeping her out of focus.

Pressed by the time, I just took 5 minutes, a quick and dirty shooting, but I’m happy I captured the very first snow in Luxembourg for this winter.

Looking forward to taking more pictures in the city, hoping that it will continue to snow.

Ad occhi aperti, my day in pictures – 28 Oct 2017

Ad occhi aperti, means “with eyes open”, in italian, my mother language.

The aim of this blog series is to show and share, at the end of each day, what my eyes have seen and what captured my attention, what triggered my emotions above all.

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

All the pictures have been taken with my iPhone 8Plus.

The day cannot begin without an italian espresso and a delicious pastry made by my mamma

 

Searching for new and nice xmas decoration for my next photo shooting…

Just me fooling around in the shopping center 🙂

The shopping basket for the next photo shooting on the theme of Xmas.

This is the place where I often go to find props and decorations for my photography sets. A A second hand shop, in Luxembourg

Unpacking my new “toy”: Nikon PC-E 85mm f2.8 Tilt and Shift lens for my Food Photography

Back in the shopping centre, with my wife, as foolish as me… 🙂

Preparing the dinner, a speciality from my region: gnocco fritto (fried dough) and prosciutto di parma/ prosciutto cotto.

Finally relaxing with a good reading

Have a good night,
Sabino
