What I know about photography....

Two days ago I took my camera, and I tried to take the same photo, look how a photo changes just because of the aperture...

1) In the first photo aperture f 5.6, ISO 100, shutter speed 1/125, here the flower is in the foreground and everything else is out of focus
Photo 1_ aperture f 5.6, ISO 100, shutter speed 1/125

2) in the second photo, aperture f11, ISO 100, shutter speed 1/40, even here the flower is in the foreground, but you can see something in the background (the branches of the tree are better defined risoect the previuos photo)
Photo 2_   aperture f11, ISO 100, shutter speed 1/40

 3) in the third photo aperture f36, ISO 100, shutter speed 1/8 almost everything is in focus (but the photo is a bit blurred, because I don't have a tripod....yet!)

Photo 3_ aperture f36, ISO 100, shutter speed 1/8
Isn't it magic?
I think I'm falling in  love with photography everyday a little more!

If you want to ask me something about photography, you're welcome!
I don't know a lot, but I would be very glad to share with you all I know about it!

Strawberry swing

And so this last weekend, Mr and I spent our time...gardening!!!
It's one of the most relaxing thing that I could do!
While we were preparing our strawberries for this summer, Mr and I talked about our week, about our future garden, about time, and how it flies when we are together....
Of course you're invited to taste our strawberrie marmalade, as soon as possible...

I hope you had a great Monday!!
Come on, the week is already started!! ;)

Spring is all around!

I wake up at 6 every morning.
And the birds sing. Every morning. A month ago, at 6 o'clock it was very dark. Now I can see something, and the sun wakes up every day a little bit early.
The weather is great, today I took my photography book, and I went to my park for studing photography, let me tell you, it has been a wonderful afternoon: the sun, warm air, photos, flowers all around me...

Oh, hello there!

Happy Saturday to all of you!!!
Well, in these days I had been a little bit busy, because I have a lot of (temporary) works, that keep me occupied!
(Good thing, let me tell you!)
Plus, the weather is so good, the sun shines, it's warm and so, all I wanna do is take my camera, take my bike and ride around the city, taking photos of what I see...
March started as a good month: days get longer, all the plants start to bloom, and I feel lucky for everyday I live, for the sun that kisses my pale skin, for a wonderful news in our family, for being at a park with a young little lady that conviced me that a cake made with grass and daisies is a good idea, for having a friend that wants me by her side in one of her most important days of her life, for being by my sister's side, for the time I spend with my Mr....
well, I'm getting too sentimental...
so, I put my coat on, I take my bike, my camera, and I do what makes me terribly happy....

These are 2 of  all the photos I took for my photography classes, we had to take a selfie!
Let me tell you, a good selfie, is not easy to take!!! ;)

HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY, to you all!!!

Welcome March! I was waiting for you!

Well, another month is finished, and we say goodbye to February!!!
March is here, and I couldn't be more happy about it!

Here's some random things I want to share with you...

I have some plans, about my photography, and I can tell you, having a plan, or a project, that depends just on me, it's something great! It gives me a lot of energies!

I spent a wonderful weekend with my Mr, we watched a lot of episodes of "How I met your mother, 7", and even if outside was raining cats and dogs, inside we were happy. Happy just of spending time together....
Happy Monday evening!!

This morning I dreamt about the dress I would have worn if I had been invited at the Oscars....

Tonight I dreamt about bees.....they say is a good signal dreaming about bees, finger crossed

I'm in love with nature and flowers, it seems that everything is blooming

Do you know I have a new book of recipe? I love them!

This weekend I discovered that painting is relaxing

Laissez vous aller, le temps d'un baiser *

And we turned 6!!!
Yeeees, six years!!!!Our lovestory can go to elementary school!!!
Thank you sooooo much, my Mr, for always been by my side in my ups and downs, for making me know what real love is, for texting me every night "sweet dreams, I love you", for waiting for me while I take photos, for all the adventures, for all the travels, for all the pizzas together, for all the dreams we share, for making me feel sure of myself, for all the flowers and the plants you gave me in these years, for teaching me swimming, for all the Sunday afternoons, for all the seasons of "How I met your mother", for the past, present and future, for being you.
And after all, yesterday evening you told me: "Well, don't you know that the best is yet to come?"
And I was in paradise.
