The golden rule in Life has always been, "treat others the way you want to be treated". And there's no better or more fitting day to remind ourselves this than today, November 13 -- internationally acknowledged as World Kindness Day.
In its very core, World Kindness Day is observed to encourage people to “look beyond ourselves, beyond the boundaries of our country, beyond our culture, our race, our religion; and realize we are citizens of the world”. It is for us to exercise compassion and empathy towards all living things.

For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
