Once upon a time in a Royal Palace…

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.

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.

I really enjoyed this little vacation with my boyfriend and other two friends. Unfortunately we couldn’t visit Anna Frank’s house because we had just a couple of days and the line were too long. However we visited the Heritage where we could see Vincent Van Gogh’s works. Was quiet a fast trip, we tried to visit all the possible places and trying to do it I got very sick from the second night. But doesn’t matter when you are in a place as lovely as Amsterdam is.

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!!!

A poem

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.

From The Ballad of the White Horse | 1911
