First of all, a big thank you to the wonderful J who is behind the Diary of an Aesthete (make sure you check it out, because it is nothing short of amazing) for the lovely surprise – a nomination of my site for an award!!!
Its always a pure delight to know my vision of the world resonates with souls of other people, making this experience ever more worth it and special.
I guess its time to answer the questions, so here we go then…
1. Where do most visits to your blog come from?
The leaders are USA, Italy and Belgium, followed by Australia, Portugal, Brazil and UK.
2. What is your favourite sport?
It has to be ice skating. I love the feeling of almost flying I get when gliding (even if ever so slightly clumsily compared to pros) on ice.
3. What has been a special moment for you in 2014?
My magical two weeks in winter Venice.
4. What is your favourite quote?
There are soon many, but a few favourites go like this:
I repeat for the last time: to understand me, you’ll have to swallow a world. [Salman Rushdi “Midnight’s Children”]
As an artist, I follow my heart, my soul, my gut, and do what the fuck I want to do. [Jared Leto]
Here are three words for being a better photographer: ‘Move your ass’ [Jay Maisel]
The pictures are everywhere. If you’re open they will come to you. [Jay Maisel]
5. What was your favourite class when still at school?
First one was English. This language simply infiltrated my brain and has stayed there without any intentions of leaving. And then I fell in love with history.
6. Anything you wished to have learned earlier?
Taking pictures and Italian.
7. What musical instrument have you tried to play?
The first one was violin and then piano followed. That was a long time ago. I wouldnt be able to play anything on a violin if my life depended on it now, but I bought a keyboard on a whim with intention to re-learn to play, however, I never got to doing that. I guess I should though.
Now Im supposed to nominate people for this award, but I know that some are not fans of nominations and things, which is why instead of nominating anybody, I will share with you the list of blogs I personally find absolutely fascinating (in no particular order of preference, mind you, because they all are equally special).
Lets start with the wonderfully savvy and charming Mr Bowie
For dream-like and ethereal portraits lets pay a visit to Teija
After that lets dive into the incredible street and travel photography stories of Alessandro
The fun and informative posts of Yvonne will make you learn many interesting things.
Want to walk around Venice and meet a charming devil? Michelle’s blog is the perfect place for doing just that.
For beautiful poetry lets head over to Anotnio’s blog here.
And my list would never be complete without the master of words Paolo M
So, here it is then – some questions answered, some award rules broken, but I hope its been fun, and I will see you in my next post!
