Once upon a time there was a girl traveling with a memory keeper and a notebook…
I confess I am obsessed with the royal life, well not the current royal life, I am talking about the royal life of the XV or XVIII centuries. Today we finally visited La Reggia di Caserta, a beautiful and huge palace just a few minutes from Naples. Kind of Versailles, this palace was constructed for the Bourbon kings of Naples and actually, is the largest palace in Europe with more than 2 million m3.
This amazing palace has 1,200 rooms, including two dozen state apartments, a large library, and a theatre, some of those still furnished by original pieces (Bed heads and linens, bathroom furnitures and a huge collection of antique books in the library). The gardens and fountains are pieces of art. Such a great place to visit, as a museum and gallery inside of the rooms (expositions changing once in a while) or just walking or riding thru the gardens.
La semana pasada estuvimos filmando para el proyecto final de la clase de Digital Video. Les comparto unos screenshots de la grabación.
Last week we were filming for the Digital Video final project. Here some screenshots of the day.
Spring break is over and we are back to the Institute. Tons of homework and now, developing final projects . Here an attempt to do a high speed photo using strawberries and bowl with water.
El break terminó y ahora estamos de regreso al Instituto. Con mucha tarea, proyectos para el fin del semestre, etc. Les comparto esta fresita, para clase de fotografía, que más bien parece un ensayo de un high speed.
Sueño, mucho sueño y los párpados me pesan.
One, two, Freddy’s coming for you…Three, four, better lock your door…Five, six, grab your crucifix…Seven, eight, gonna stay up late…Nine, ten, never sleep again
Tomorrow night is Halloween and of course we are planing to go out and wear weird costumes 🙂 Two weeks ago we went to Fiesole and I took this photo of my armenian friend, Mariam, and I just loved it.. She was there near to the church just looking and then… two photos made this.. I decided to post this until now cz remains me kind of out of cemetery or those haunted mansions 🙂
PS.. a week without post.. I’m sorry!!!
I took this photo last weekend at Fiesole -15 min from Florence-. The place is very nice, so quiet and with an amazing view. Since you arrive you can go up to visit the church and the convent, but the most amazing thing is the view!!!! Coming soon more photos but this time, just a part of G. K. Chesterton poem.
Up through an empty house of stars, Being what heart you are, Up the inhuman steeps of space As on a staircase go in grace, Carrying the firelight on your face Beyond the loneliest star.
