Ostia Lido

Ostia Lido, porto del litorale di Roma, distante circa 27 km dalla capitale, è composta da tre frazioni: Castel Fusano, Ostia Levante e Ostia Ponente ed è vicinissima al sito archeologico di Ostia Antica, l'antico porto dell'Impero Romano. E' stata fondata nel XIX secolo, dopo i lavori di bonifica iniziati nell'1884 lavoratori dell'Emilia Romagna, ma, anticamente era una zona di saline



Qui di seguito un breve video (girato con una Nikon COOLPIX A) del Pontile di Ostia Lido, simbolo del litorale romano, inaugurato nel 1940 e ricostruito più volte. Buona visione!

Streets & Sea

I'll return in a splendid church in the center of Rome, Chiesa S. Alfonso Liguori, to take pictures for a new project very soon and, meanwhile, now I post here some street snapshots taken in these first days of January 2015. I have to say street photography (including urban-landscapes) is very cool

Piazza della Repubblica

Night scenery of Piazza della Repubblica where there is the splendid Fountain of Naiads. Flanked by grand neoclassical colonnades, this landmark piazza was laid out as part of Rome's post-unification makeover. It follows the lines of the semicircular exedra (benched portico) of Diocletian's Baths complex and was originally known as Piazza Esedra. In the centre, this fountain aroused puritanical ire when it was unveiled by architect Mario Rutelli in 1901. The nudity of the four naiads or water nymphs, who surround the central figure of Glaucus wrestling a fish, was considered too provocative

Streets video

Street photos in Rome between 2012, 2013 and 2014, shooting almost with toy or little compact like SONY DSC W170. First period it was as real beginner phase on the way my amateur photography


Streets photos in Rome, urban landscapes and other, in January 2015, shooting almost with a DSLR NIKON D3200 or NIKON Coolpix A
Second period it was more of as beginner, but the way to improve my photography is long and often lack of time (work and family) and also lack of inspiration (fatigue and tiredness or photographer's block?) slows my progress


In any case in these recently months I started to use YouTube putting my favorite snapshots I have taken in the past three years on video

Aventino

Starting the New Year with a video about Aventine Hill, the most southerly of Rome's seven hills, a splendid elegant and contemplative part of town, with  many old charming streets and gardens where to enjoy relaxing promenades. Pictures taken last July 2014
