But anyway, it still can be a funny (if not pretty) spot to shoot, maybe for the sky and clouds colors, for my cat standing on it watching out what’s going on, maybe to experiment some new stuff (like long night exposures or holgaramas as you see…). But I have to confess you that most of these pics I took from this window were simply the consequence of my ever growing addiction to photography (any addiction gives birth to some kind of dependency) and that feeling it gives me sometimes (and I’m sure you do feel it too): I’ve got to shoot! And which better and faster way to satisfy this feeling? I’m sure you have a window…

In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
