    The Land Down Under: Koala Cuddles

    When I went to visit my friend in New Zealand, we also took a trip to Australia. We travelled from Brisbane to Sydney in a little camper. As we drove, we constantly saw these traffic signs warning us that we had to look out for passing kangaroos and koalas. We were really hoping we would see one but when this didn’t happen until we visited the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Fig Tree Pocket.

    Redwings Rescue Center

    Pick a hot, sunny, sweltering day to capture an out-of-place feeling that you are somewhere else than Warwickshire, UK. Shoot the horses, the donkeys, all rescued and who all will capture your heart. Then, move out to the wide, open fields to experience a feeling that you are the only person around in this wide-open space.

    Every year in the beginning of September, a small Italian town situated a few miles from my city of Como hosts an ancient fair dedicated to the Virgin Mary: the Fair of Our Lady of Rogoredo. This series of images fresh from my darkroom was taken using a roll of HP5+ film loaded inside my wonderful Horizon Perfekt.

    Donkey Sanctuary

    The Sanctuary was established in 1987 to provide a safe, permanent home for any donkey in distress or otherwise in need of care and attention. I just love this place, apart from a lot of sad looking donkeys in some fields there's not much else to see, but the donkeys are so lovely and friendly - even though they look melancholic and depressed - and they just love to have their ears and backs scratched. They make this extraordinary "Hee-Haw" noise that guarantees to bring a smile on your face. When the donkeys are hungry they will try to eat anything, Lomo cameras included, if only they could reach them.

    Santuario Fatima

    It was May 13th 1917 when the Virgin Mary appeared for the first time to three shepherd children at Cova da Iria, a few kilometers from Fátima. It certainly was a turning point for the small village that nowadays receives more than 7 million visitors every year and it is one the most important religious tourism destinations in the world.
