Plus One Collection III

Also this year Plus One Collection is back. +Ivan Makarov gives once again us the possibility to share our favorite shots and to support people that need help. Last two years I missed this opportunity but this one I will not. I hope that my humble work here below may help in this important charity project.

Bridge to a quiet place

www.lucagerardi.com

It's a long time I'm away from G+. Many things have changed along these months but just one remained unchanged: my love for photography! The quietness, the satisfaction and the deep feeling of contact with the most beautiful things of the world that taking photos brings in me are unique and I couldn't live without them

This here is the last shot I took during a wonderful trip to Portugal with +Francesco Gola and +Alessio Andreani in early 2013. I miss our photographic adventure guys!

This picture is for our #longexposurethursday   +LongExposure Thursday  page curated by myself and my friend +Francesco Gola

Even better if this journeys are walked through friend like I did in my last trip to Portugal and Lisbon together with +Francesco Gola and +Alessio Andreani. Thank you guys for that unforgettable days. I hope life will be full of adventures like these.

Essential!

This is a B&W experiment, I'm not used to shot in this way and I have to train myself in saying the world in black and white. 
I believe it is a good exercise not only for photographic purposes; we live in an over saturated world where everything is too much. This is an exercise to go back to the essential. The simple and more authentic part of life, those things that make life worthwhile to be lived.
This is my late contribution to #longexposurethursday  curated by my friend +Francesco Gola and me.

Three Friends

There are days when you feel everything too heavy to be borne and the future seems darker then a night without the moon. 
But then friends arrive and it happened that like a magic everything is enlighten by new colors, you find again the enthusiasm which is the pillar of men life! 
This humble picture is a contribution to #longesxposurethursday  +LongExposure Thursday and a tribute to the three friends that shared with me few days in Cote d'Azur (+Francesco Gola, +Alessio Andreani, +Eric Rousset).

Thank you for giving me the best gift a man can desire... smiles!

Still loading! mates :)

Where life is worthwhile to be lived.

Tellaro, Liguria, Italy

We are used to crowded cities and we run after something, maybe we do not even know, everyday. Then life change and changes are unexpected and sometime hurts you, sometimes makes you so happy. But when you find a place where your spirit can run free and breath deeply you understand that whatever happen it has been good to be there. Life is worthwhile to be lived.

It was a long time I was away from photography and it was a breath of freedom be once again close to the sea taking a shot in that magical surroundings with my friends. I should spend more time taking picture even though many times I believe that my capability and knowledge are just the reflected light of the one who brought me in this adventure of buying a DSRL camera. Could be... but I will never stop to say thank you to that "stupid thin man".

Home Sweet Home

www.lucagerardi.com

No sea this time, not a journey in a new and wonderful place but just the hills were I am living since 32 years. I spent good times and bad times here around and these places will be forever engraved in the deepest part of my heart.
This shot shows a little town named Castana in my beloved Oltrepò Pavese.

To a Friend

This shot is dedicated to my friend +Francesco Gola
Now he is going through a hard time but I would like just to remember him all the wonderful time spent together over more then 25 year friendship. 
We were together when I took this shot. Don't be sad cause you are not shooting pictures since last year. Consider this period as a "battery charging" time. We will be soon on a stunning reef discussing together on which is the best view or which filters we should use, and as usual you will complain me. :)
Your life brought you in many different places, your trip is still ongoing but I'm sure that the best one has still to come.

Not just a picture

I do love taking picture with my camera. I believe it's our way fix for ever a bit of beauty, the same beauty that will save the world. But a shot is just the final result of much more. A path, done with friend, moments spent together looking to the sun to find the best conditions. Every picture posted is tons of stories, of trials taken and smiles. It's something special that end up in a frame. Whichever is the result the time spent to looking for that shot is something never to be forgotten. This shot is dedicated to my friends +Francesco Gola, +Silvia Lanati and Alberto Politi.
Thanks for the long path walked together, I hope it has been just a small part of the whole.
