Touring Paris in my dreams looking beyond the tour Eiffel, Louver, Montmartre, Notre dame.
Paris – the city of love – Eiffel tower, Louvre, Sacre Coeur and on and on are a must see. In the sheer expanse of this city there is much more to discover, however. since i wouldn’t consider myself the typical tourist that is after a photography of each major attraction that i can hang next to the post card of the Eiffel tower i bought 5 years ago in little Italy. So what makes Paris a special place for me?
It is what makes lomography special to me. It allows or sometimes even seduces me to look at the world in a different way, as if i was some instrument with slightly blurred, infra-red vision. It makes me want to make love with the people and objects i am seeing, dance with the street musician, fly over the roofs of paris, becoming michelangelo’s slave. As lomography, so is Paris an orgasmic unification of the old and the modern – graffiti on 400 year old walls, glasses pyramids in the midst of the louvre. It is in this unification that the charm of Paris is born – once it takes hold of you – you are hopelessly lost. It calls your name in your sleep and softly embraces your dreams.
Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.
This month, after waiting for three years, my city Como hosted the Tour of Lombardy, an important event in the male elite road cycling tour. With my Fed 3 loaded with black and white film and equipped with ultra sharp Industar 50/3.5 lens, I documented the parade of cyclists who went to the starting line after they registered. Take a look after the jump!

Since the dawn of time humans have strived for impossible situations: Icarus's wings, a magic carpet and green tomato ketchup (it does not taste the same). Multiple exposures are an excellent way for us to create visions beyond our wildest dreams.

In many of the places I've travelled, I've seen small, yellow amphibious tour buses -- the ubiquitous 'Ducks.' In some places the pleasure cruisers are encouraged to blow duck whistles, but everywhere they tour on land before descending into the city's waterway. I decided to become a tourist in my own town and ride the London duck.
