Obbiettivo raggiunto, le visite ai miei video su Nat Geo Adventure hanno superato la ragguardevole cifra di 100.000. Non so se rendo l’idea, i miei videos su Nat Geo sono stati visti più di centomila volte!!!
Grazie di cuore a tutti, è uno dei più bei regali di natale che abbia mai ricevuto. Ehhh, mo magari esagero, comunque, se è vero che “what goes around comes around”, qualcosa verrà fuori da tutto questo. Il tempo ci dirà (sto scordando l’Italiano, aiuto!!!).
Buone feste a tutti da Banff, Canada.

Andrehaero.

I made it, my videos on Nat Geo Adventure reached 100.000 plus hits!!
Thanks to y’all from the bottom of my heart, this is one of the best xmas present I’ve ever received. Well, I might exaggerate a little here, but if what goes around comes around, something will come out of this. Time will tell.
Happy holidays from Banff Canada.

L’area Schengen si allarga / Schengen expands (No Comments)

schengen area

L’area Schengen si allarga e include ora la Repubblica Ceca, l’Estonia, l’Ungheria, la Lettonia, la Lituania, Malta, la Polonia, la Slovacchia, e la Slovenia. Niente più controlli alle frontiere fino a qullello che meno di 20 anni fa era l’oscuro “Est Europeo”, il grigio oltre la cortina di ferro.
Nel 2008 festeggeremo l’adesione storica della Svizzera.

Sarò monotono e idealista, ma ribadisco il mio pensiero: i confini e le frontiere sono il segno che la nostra specie non è abbastanza evoluta, e non sfrutta l’intelligenza come potrebbe.

From BBC world:

The Schengen agreement, which allows passport-free travel across the area, now embraces 24 nations.

Some 2,000 people celebrated with the EU anthem, Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, and fireworks in the town of Frankfurt on Oder at Germany’s border with Poland.

The Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia joined the zone.

Imagine Peace (6 Comments)
John and Yoko, imaginepeace

Commovente messaggio di Yoko Ono, in memoria del suo straordinario marito, il mitico John Lennon. Dal video si scopre che già negli anni 70 fecero una campagna planetaria contro la guerra, usando manifesti, una propaganda vera e propria, simile a quella di Banksy o Shepard Farey.

La seconda foto è di ieri, 21 dicembre, era su un palo semaforico a Kamloops in British Columbia, Canada. La gente sta rispondendo e sta attaccando i mitici manifesti di John e Yoko. Bene così!!!

So for the holidays, be busy. Have fun. And remember to be kind and giving – to yourself first. For you are beautiful, and we love you.

We shall speak again after the New Year. Let’s hope it’s a good one without any fear.

With love, yoko

Los Angeles Impact (6 Comments)

English text below.

Lasciati i paradisi di Rarotonga e le Fiji, volo negli USA, dopo 5 anni. Los Angeles mi accoglie vestito di smog. Visibilità qualche km, che succede in California?

Tutto ok. Il giorno dopo il sole torna a splendere, 24 gradi al sole che bacia le freeways e le highways. Venice beach ancora uggiosa.
Il figlio di Mine e Ted Hughes, Eren, capisce già tre lingue, Martha gli chiede “donde estan tu zapatos?” e Mine la madre chiede la stessa cosa in Turco. Nel pomeriggio, Ted ha chiesto “the shoes” e Eren è partito in quarta a prendere le sue scarpine. Magnifico!!
Si torna a Burbank, la capitale mondiale dei Media. Da qui partono tutti i formats per tv series e programmi televisivi, in 5 minuti ero davanti alla Warner Bros, in 10 davanti ei disney studios, in mezz’ora a piedi Universal city. La capitale mondiale delle immagini in movimento.

E solo in movimento si può apprezzare LA…
Si comincia dalle Freeways a più di 6 corsie, si continua spingendosi su un longboard…

Si va verso Hollywood…

English

Left behind the tropical paradises of Fiji and Rarotonga, I fly to the USA, five years later. L.A. welcomes me dressed in thick smog, what happens in Cali?

All is well. The day after the sun is back shining, 24°C kissing the highways and the freeways. venice beach is still misty.
Mine and Ted Hughes son, Eren, understands 3 languages already; Martha asks him “donde estan tu zapatos?” and then Mine aska the same but in Turkish. In the afternoon Ted asked Eren “the shoes” and he dashed to pick up his shoes. Magnificent!
Back to Burbank, World Media Capital. All the Tv series and Tv shows formats are invented here, in 5 minutes walk Warner Bros, in 10 Disney Studios, half an hour and it’s Universal city. World moving images capital.

And only moving you can fully appreciate L.A…
You start in the six more lanes freeways, and you keep moving on a longboard…
Toward Hollywood…

David Cartier, free spirit chasing horizons and auroras. (8 Comments)
aurora borealis by David Cartier

Alaska Direct bus ride from Fairbanks Alaska, USA, to Whitehorse Yukon, Canada, along the Alcan highway. An amazing journey, with an surprising driver.
David profile on Flickr says it all about this amazing human being:

Canadian born and partly raised… (It’s a long story) … But … floated down the Yukon River for 3 months in my younger days and got trapped in Alaska for 25 yrs. Mostly in a remote Yupik Eskimo village, 600 miles from the nearest road. Spent the last few winters travelling in SE Asia, but missed the Northern Lights and am now back in the Yukon Territory, running the only transportation link between Alaska and the Canadian Yukon.

Borders irritate me …I prefer to think of myself as “Civis Mundanus”… a citizen of this beautiful WORLD.

I love to do amateur astronomy with my 5 inch refractor, read voraciously (history, science, Latin & Greek Classics) and play with all my ancient film cameras, especially in the dark of night.
I also love scouring the mountains of Alaska, the Yukon and Northwest Territories for the fossil remnants of ancient worlds … My next Flickr project is to photograph my fossil collection, if I ever get around to it.
I really don’t care for contests, prizes, etc…. am kind of turned off by all that ….. What I love about Flickr is the marvel of being able to share my love of nature with people all around the world……. As well as to see nature through their eyes….. As the last great American President , Thomas Jefferson,once said ….” There is not so much as a blade of grass, anywhere in Nature, that does not interest me”
In doing photography, I use a variety of interesting old film cameras and , most recently, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 digital w/ 10x Leica Zoom.
While I’m in awe of the art created by photographers using Photoshop, etc. I don’t really think of what I do as art …more like a loving chronicling of Nature, to which I like to maintain a certain fidelity. I like my images to be as true as possible to how they were experienced, especially my Northern Lights pix (all film shots), to which end i will occasionally mess with the brightness and contrast in Windows Photo Gallery, if Walmart doesn’t do a great job printing, but that’s about it.
I’m happy to share … anybody can use my images for anything they want,
My gratitude goes out to all who share my impressions of nature here….. I enjoy comments largely ’cause they take me to YOUR sites, where I am constantly amazed and inspired.

I’m Male.

Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada

His photos are amazing. He deserves full exposure, I’d love to see his pictures in a book or several ones. During the 10 h drive we stopped many times, to take pictures and film, and in beaver Creek, shortly after having picked up the only other passenger, we saw an Aurora. It wasn’t like the one in the picture above, but for me it was magic. The first Aurora I’ve ever seen. Congratulations David, keep it up, never stop chasing those wide wild horizons and those unique light shows above Yukon’s and Alaska’s wilderness.
