25th Hour

I do not need money.
I’m in need of feelings,
of words, of words carefully chosen,
of flowers called thoughts,
of roses called presences,
of dreams living in the trees,
of songs making the statues dance,
of stars whispering to the lovers’ ear.

I’m in need of poetry,
this magic that can burn the heaviness of words,
that can wake up emotions and paint new colors.

alda Merini

I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light


Somewhere. Sant.Angelo in Vado (PU).
Selfportait.. highly post processed.. just playing with contrast and light the most.

Hi Sergio,
I salute your come back with pleasure.
It is nice to see another of your unique self-portrait!
You looks good for her age! :) No wrinkles and clear eyes! :)
I like the strong post-processing you did. Good management of contrast.
As usual, your note adds such poetry at your work!

Nicely off centre, strong clear eyes and the post processing works a treat for me - very good portrait.

I think this is great and I'm very glad to see you again !

Good Morning Marco,

This is a most inspiring shot!
It is interesting to see how the shadow produces the light !
The portrait is quite riviting, I'm sure because of your eyes. They seem unchanged, constant in a portrait (or world) that is constantly changing!

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Caro Marco bentornato!
Torni alla grande, con un'originale opera. Bellissimo gioco di luci e ombre, messo in risalto dalla versione in B/N. Ottimo il PP work.
Senza dubbio il tuo bel volto e l'espressione intensa dello sguardo (mi sembri alquanto triste, preoccupato... e lo si capisce dalle note)contribuiscono alla perfetta riuscita dell'opera.
Ciao! Vanda

Hello Marco
This s/p is very powerful and poetic, remindinc the atmosphere of neorealitic eurpean films of the 40's, and I use it to wish you and your family Merry Christmas,
