i’m not sure what made me do this. i wanted some kind of visual change on my blog.
this was shot out the window of my and my brother’s bedroom in lake como, northern italy. i think it was in 2001 or so. it is a very small part of our incredible vista, which included boats below, mountains ahead, colourful flowers that grew from the window baskets of the apartments all around. the header is a cropped version of that shot, which i took with a disposable camera….long before i knew about shutter speed, iso, or aperture. i just liked what i saw, so i pointed, looked, and then clicked.
now, i like the way this cropped header looks because of its depth (despite the pixelation), the progression of the shades, and the way you can see how the fog in the distance wraps itself around those mountains.
i’m going to start posting some more of my own photography again. it’s been too long.
