[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At least once in your life I'm sure it happened that you have lost your whole day among old letters, memories and, of course, photos.
When your are younger it is much easier to loose more time on the ex lovers memories, but when you start to be older than ...mmhh we say 35?...
then your sensibility to the flowing of time, which inexorably goes on, can easily catch your attention much more than anything else.
So, this time is my turn, nothing serious, please believe me, but seeing some old pictures like that... it is the proof that 11 years are gone...

As far as the shot, well, here I was in a beautiful park in Frankfurt, of course I dont remember the name, you know how far in time it was...;
It was taken by a friend after a long night spent in a party (you can see the stamp on my right hand...)
I tried a PP to highlight this nostalgic feeling with this BW-color mix.

I'm sharing with you all this feeling, well knowing that now I'm much more wiser.... ;)

Salut Marco,
J’aime bien ton regard de charmeur ou dragueur ?
Enfin c’est bien un regard matcho italien …
Superbe expression et émotion du portrait..

Hello Marco,
I like your glance of charmer or dredger ?
Finally it is well an Italian glance matcho... Superb expression and emotion of the portrait...


you seem to be relaxed Marco, that's right. The PP is interesting. Well done : )


i think even the look is nostalgic, well excellent mood i'd say

Hi Marco
It makes a lot of sense. I can relate to you a lot.
Regarding this pic i loved the feeling and B&W is making it wonderful. And offcourse if the photographer is himself a great looking model then you dont need any other model to pose for you. :)

eh si'.. ho passato ieri sera un po' cosi'.. persa tra vechie foto e ricordi... ma anche tra nuovi programmi e speranze :-)

this shot captures the mood of the morning after one of those infamous early 90's party perfectly.. (the slightly wicked expression on your face is adorable!) and the faded look reminds us all of the old photos that every now and then we lose ourselves in... very well done marco ^_^

abbracci forti,

Ah..that's natural, relaxed and a very mellow trip of nostalgia. And the cool mischievous expression of yours is just completing the mood. Great show Marco

Ciao what a relaxed pause and a marked contrast with your b/w mixed with colors and saying mmmmmmm "What a night!!!" ..

again, great moody picture, your eyes expression is simply fabulous, we cannot really see, if it is like jean-paul said, charmer, dredger, or just happiness of the past night! ;)))
simply very nice portrait
see you

Hi Marco,
When did you get hair? ;P (Oh, I see now, it's an old pic).
Mmmm...I know what you mean by the flow of time. But, I'm still younger than 35, so it still goes by without my knowledge. What's today? ;P Well...
Nice use of b&w with strange color--almost, but not exact like memory is. Good job.
