My posts have been absent for a while. I have taken a trip to the old continent I am originally from and have discovered fantastic new places while making lasting connections. I have had the immense pleasure and chance to explore a bit of Sicily and then flew to visit my family in Romania. While coming back to Toronto via Rome I had a 5 hours wait so, in my thirst for more Italian vistas, I decided to take the train into town so I can breath a bit of Roman air. I got off the subway close to Fontana di Trevi which brought back memories from a few years ago when I last visited this charming city. Needless to say how loaded with history and art Rome is. I recall my first experience had such an impact on me as every corner I was turning, a new monument or sculpture would show up in the middle of a quaint piazza. How lovely to truly take so much history in…I did not have a lot of time at all, but I managed to walk around a bit, get some quick street shots and reward myself with a savory panini and a delicious latte. I wish I could stay a bit longer, but whenever this happens I remind myself there is always a next time. And I know for a fact that Italy is waiting for me to come back. I feel refreshed, happy and light after this adventure that reconnected me with my Latin roots.
Images from my Sicilian exploration to follow soon, just wanted to say HI to you all. Hope you are enjoying your summer! M
It is interesting how ‘explorable’ some places are. No matter how many times they get to be visited, there are still little surprises hiding around corners…this is the case with the Toronto Harbourfront. Mostly very busy, on the day of the shoot the usual crowds were somehow missing, maybe due to the rain threat. Lucky us, as the light was absolutely incredible. My very sweet ‘models’, Giselle and Anthony, were so good! Not only I diverted them from our original plan, but I got them to step on moving platforms, jump into docked boats, walk up and down little hills. I know they were tired at the end, but content with the adventure I am sure, as the colours were truly fantastic. Some of the photos even look like they could have been taken on the East Coast… Well, I guess sometimes mind travel is better than no travel at all
I look forward to your wedding this summer, dear Giselle and Anthony! Enjoy the warm weather until then and prepare yourselves for some fun! Yours truly.
