a silent game



L'Aquila, December 24, 2008

de kinderen,
ze zijn naar huis
gegaan

het is koud,
zeggen
de moeders

zien ze de zon dan niet?

de beheerder,
hij sloot
de hekken

de schaduwen,
ze spelen
een stil spel


the children,
they've gone
home

It is cold,
the mothers
said

can’t they see the sun?

the warden,
he closed
the gates

the shadows,
they play
a silent game

Because of HCB



L'Aquila, December 24, 2008




Henri Cartier Bresson made some beautiful photographs in L'Aquila. I saw them years ago and promised myself to go and see this town one day. This is one of these photographs - I couldn't find it on the net, so I took a photo of it. Just to give you an idea.



This is how it looks now.

Keep smiling



L'Aquila, December 28, 2009

Back home, sorting out the photographs I made in L'Aquila, Castel del Monte, Celano and Rome and fighting off a very nasty cold I took with me from Italy.
