The Azure Window, in Gozo Island, Malta, a photo by Luigi R. Viggiano on Flickr. New year, new life. Got my camera bag stolen with all the gears in my hometown Turin. Yesterday I was looking back to the old pictures, and I found some good ones made with a 10 year old super compact […]

Another funny video I found around.

Sunset on Salzburg, a photo by Luigi R. Viggiano on Flickr. I got very positive comments about this picture I made yesterday evening in Salzburg. My only picture in flickr explore was another sunset I shot in Dusseldorf, and this one is getting good attention today, so I hope it will be my second flickr […]

Venetian Mask

Venetian Mask, a photo by Luigi R. Viggiano on Flickr. I made many pictures of those masks in Roman shops. In some shops I saw same sign saying "no picture please". Eventually the idea to shot those colorful masks is not too original, and the shop owners get tired of people coming in just for […]

This picture has been shot from the Rhein promenade in Düsseldorf. I remember I was having a bad day at home, so I went out for a photo walk, which extended to be till late evening. I come back with a lot of good shots. The sun was red and visible by bare eyes, and […]

I was in Aachen Cathedral the week before and it wasn’t half much as beautiful as the Liège Cathedral, use of tripod is forbidden and interesting […]

Those two skyscrapers are located in Medienhafen area in Düsseldorf. This picture is hdr processed from three shots, -2, 0, +2 exposure. The metal bulb at the bottom is the Pebble’s Bar, which by my understanding is managed by the hotel. What I like in this picture is the Blade Runner-like atmosphere and the sun […]

Sunday afternoon I made an excursion in the Unterbacher See and I made some nature photos. I found a restaurant where this typewriting machine, an Adler Model 7 of 1900, was lying on a table. So I took a picture and I tried to apply the texture photo retouching technique that I learned recently. The […]

Killepitsch liqueur can be tasted in the small bar “Et Kabüffke” near the brewery Uerige. I use to go in this place for a Killepitsch to complete the dinners with friends in the Düsseldorf altstadt (the old city). I’ve heard that Killepitsch is only available in Düsseldorf; I don’t know if this is true, but […]
