met Di today, a talented photographer (check her site) who left New Zealand a while ago to live first in Istanbul then now in Anversa. Apart from a number of exhibitions where her shots are framed and shown, she’s offering interesting workshops around the world exclusively for women, and the feedback on her site confirms her success!

She is, like me, deeply in love with the beauty of Genova, and its Città Vecchia. We’ve been in touch via email for some time and I was really looking forward to this face-to-face, lens-to-lens: two different people, a real pro (her) and a passionate amateur (me) spending lunchtime talking about a city like Genova, its history, its art, but mostly its beautiful people.

Time for tagliolini al pestoravioli al tocco. Time for cima with insalata russa and arrosto con purea. Time for a glass of red wine, Nebbiolo. Time to share how we approach photography, time to say how we speak languages, time for our backgrounds, our wishes, our mutual appreciation. Time to dream. Time to say that we trust life is a beautiful gift that we need to enjoy every single minute.

Different gears, same passion. Different background, same love. Different language, same feelings.

Thanks Di, I had a great time!

It's been almost 50 years that I travel across the word (and the 7 seas), on business or vacation, but always carrying with me a Leica camera. I started keeping this kind of journal a while ago. Even if sometime I disappear for ages, I'm then coming back with semi-regular updates: publishing is a kind of mirroring of my state and emotions, and you need to take it as it is. All published photos are mine.
