Blab Photos of Blabbers Blabbing from every corner of the World


If You have beeb blabbing chances are that you may be on these pictures. I have been on blab.im just for one week but this new video chat platform connected with your +Twitter  handle seems to be the craze of the moment. The secret must be its simplicity and the fact that there are very few things you have to know about videochatting in order to participate actively. +Mike Downes  and I go a long way back to the very beginning of +Google+  #Hangouts in 2011. Today we aren’t hanging out as much as we did when the videochatting platform was  launched. The reasons may be many. Today we are happy about this new platform and the success that blab.im is having shows that there is always need for something new on the Web and people are really willing to hop in and try something that is well done and simple to use. +Team Blab  is doing a great job, and I’m pretty sure these are days of bug squashing, pints of coffee drinking,few hours a day sleeping, wghile sorting all the suggestions coming in from everyone. My suggestion is to keep it simple. There are a couple of features I would love to see if I may suggest: A) An invite button, so that I could invite my friends over to my chat on Blab. B) a sound annoucing when someone wants in the room. In a multitasking world it would be very helpful.C) the possibility of screen sharing. (It could be a fifth window where anyone could share their photos or links, or desktops. That is all. I am a  street photographer This is my collection on G+ so I will keep taking screenshots of blab.im Blabbers blabbing from all over the world.

Oderzo Perla del Veneto ispirazione per un fotografo di strada


APR

Oderzo Perla del Veneto. La sua gente le sue strade i bellissimi spunti per un fotografo di strada

Ieri in un gruppo al quale partecipavo su Facebook il moderatore ha postato un “Codice Etico per l’uso delle foto ” che ritraggono persone per strada. In queste ultime settimane mi ero permesso di pubblicare dei “candid shots” di gente presa così, mentre cammina per le strade di Oderzo. Precisando che se a qualcuno avessero dato fastidio avrei subito provveduto a rimouverle

Vengo spesso in questa bellissima cittadina del Veneto; mi rilassa la sua Piazza Grande ancora a misura d’uomo e ricordo anche le accese polemiche che ci furono negli anni 80 quando si paventò l’idea di renderla pedonale. Allora ero il fotografo del +Gazzettino  ed ho seguito la vicenda con passione. Sono felice che alla fine abbia prevalso il buon senso, regalandoci una delle più belle piazze della provincia di Treviso.

Una piazza che per un “fotografo di strada” come mi piace definirmi adesso è sempre una grande attrattiva.
All’inizio della mia carriera di fotoreporter d’assalto frequentavo luoghi più pericolosi. La guerra Serbo Croata mi ha insegnato che bisogna stare attenti alle mine anti uomo che sono verdi e sembrano dei grossi freesbee. L’Intifada in Israele mi ha insegnato che vivere o morire in certi casi è una questione di piccole decisioni prese in fretta, e così via.

Adesso sono tranquillo e ho famiglia. Le foto di guerra le lascio fare agli altri. Mi piace cogliere certi momenti nei quali la gente si ritrova anche così per caso come in questa foto fatta davanti al Duomo, dove due vecchi amici, un uomo e una suora si ritrovano per uno scambio di idee. Non ho ascoltato quello che dicevano ovviamente ma la loro conversazione era cordiale e genuina

Ho pubblicato decine, centinaia di foto come questa e non ho mai avuto nessun problema di Privacy o di ritorsioni legali per averlo fatto. Ho sempre pubblicato le mie foto usando un grande rispetto e puntualizzando (come ho fatto nel gruppo Facebook) che se avessero dato fastidio a qualcuno le avrei subito rimosse. I commenti sono stati tutti positivi e questo mi ha spinto a pubblicarne di nuove visto che incontravano il favore della gente di Oderzo. Fino a ieri, quando il moderatore ha deciso di insegnarmi cosa dovevo o non dovevo pubblicare. Ho deciso quindi di uscire dal gruppo e di pubblicare le foto della gente di Oderzo su questo blog e sul mio profilo Facebook (cercate se volete pio dal cin e mi troverete facilmente). Nel libro che ho pubblicato a dicembre +Cuore Veneto Codognè Treviso   “Codognè Cuore Veneto” (lo trovate nelle due librerie Opitergine) ho fatto un accenno alla bellezza della città di Oderzo. Nel prossimo volume in uscita a Natale ci sarà un’ampio spazio dedicato a questa “Perla del Veneto”. Ci saranno luoghi, scorci e personaggi. Se qualcuno si sentirà offeso dalle mie foto si accomodi pure e adisca a vie legali. Non accetto però lezioni di etica da nessuno e tantomeno da chi non è del settore. Per me la fotografia è stato e sarà uno stile di vita e una passione bruciante; un virus dal quale non sono mai riuscito a liberarmi. Non saranno le parole di un moderatore di un gruppo Facebook a farmi desistere a continuare a scattare e pubblicare le mie foto, come sempre nel grande rispetto di chi sto ritraendo. Non sono un Paparazzo, sono un fotografo di strada.

Pope Francis will clean the Vatican like San Francesco


(by pio dal cin)March 15th 2013 00:18 a.m (Rome Time GMT+1) As Pope Francesco begins His Papacy with a visit to the Church of  Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome to pay respect to Mary Mother of Jesus. known to the people of Rome as

Maria Salus Populi Romani.


 
Pope Francesco boarded a simple car instead of the Official Vatican Car and with a simple bouquet of flowers in His hand went to the Church to pray silently for about ten minutes in front of the Altar.
 
His simple ways highlited here by The New York Times appeared immediate as He choose his papal name as Francesco as the Greatest Saint in the History of the Church.

Even the +Dalai Lama  made a +Google+  post to acknowledge that He knows and Loves Saint Francis of Assisi for His discipline,simple ways, and Love for All Creatures.

Being the first Pope ever to choose  such a Great Name puts Him on a very important spot. Not easy to manage.

The need for a simple Man that can embrace the Original Message of Jesus through the New Testament withnessed in person by Saint Francis of Assisi was strongly needed in a corrupted and evil world that hasn’t spared even the Vatican in the past decade.

1)Vatican Leaks
2)Pedophile Scandals in the Catholic Church
3)The IOR Vatican Bank Scandals
4)Vatican richness

He has a though job ahead of Him, but His simple ways (He greeted the crowd in St.Peter with a “Fratelli e Sorelle Buonasera”) have already conquered the world. He asked the people who gathered in the Square to Bless Him, before He would Bless them.
How many Wolves will this Pope with Italian Origins will have to encounter inside the Vatican, like

Saint Francis with the Gubbio’s Wolf (see video here)

New Pope O’Malley Cardinal with “what it takes” (a plea to the Holy Spirit)


(by pio dal cin) Saturday March 9th 2013 7:00 Rome Time.
With the Conclave Extra Hommnes  from the Latin word “cum clavem” (with key) that comes from what happened in 1270 when the people of Viterbo locked the cardinals in the City’s Palace until they reached the election of Gregory X

The process to elect the new Head of the Catholic Church will begin on Tuesday March 12th. 
As I stated in a previous post( A fool’s prediction),  trying to make a prediction is like to be able to guess the lottery numbers. Anyone can be right or wrong.


I was brought up a Christian Catholic in a very strict way. My name comes from Padre Pio da Petrelcina whom my dad met many times when he was a “small friar” battered by the Church and confined without the permission to Celebrate the Mass as he was becoming popular among the crowds for His “miracles”.

                      (Mons. Albino Luciani-Pope John Paul the I with my father) I met two Popes personally in my life: Pope John Paul

the I and Pope John Paul the II. (foto copyright pio dal cin 2013)



During my travelling around the World, as a photojournalist I came in touch and I studied 
Islam, Ebraism, Buddhism and the Religion of the Native Americans, out of my curiosity of understanding where, if there is one, lies the Truth.

I must admit that I wasn’t thrilled about Pope Benedict VXI; not much for His great personality and profound culture, but for the fact that he “sported” those huge golden crosses on His neck and the “fisherman ring” was big enough to buy a couple of apartments.

I kept repeating to myself that “This cannot be Sacred..” Isn’t the Church supposed to support the poverty as one of the three wows?”

Native Americans have a saying “If it is Sacred it must be Free..” I like this. But how many controversial, not free items are there in the Catholic Church today? Why is the Legacy of Saint Peter obliterated by scandals of the Vatican’s funds of million of Euros? 

I learned that the IOR (the Vatican Bank)is the most powerful bank in the whole world.


This should change, in my humble opininion. Saint Francis of Assisi was called by Jesus
to “Repair the Church”“Vai Francesco, ripara la mia Chiesa” and was cited here by Benedict VXI.

Times are very hard and the sex scandals, Vatican Leaks and not so transparent transactions of the Church are “rocking the Boat” like never before. 

Given my statement that “You have to be a Fool to make a prediction of choosing a Pope”, I will have another approach and “write a letter of plead to the Holy Spirit“, asking to pick the only one I saw that fits the description of Saint Francis of Assisi: Cardinal Sean O’Malley (read His blog)

LETTER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT: I will start with this Song to the Holy Spirit, that is sung by the Cardinals upon entering the Conclave, to ask for Divine Inspiration.






Dear Holy Spirit,

I am just a grain of sand in the Universe. I understand nothing about the Laws and the Forces that balance the Great Space.

Many Humans call upon Your Force and Greatness. Some call You Great Spirit, other call You Holy Spirit, other do not even believe in You.

During these days the Catholic Church is called to elect the Captain of the Ship.  

It is been very hard for me in these past years to believe that Your Holy Presence is among those walls, given all the scandals that we heard about.

It is very hard to boftenelieve that the Spirit of Jesus and of Saint Peter, and Saint Francis of Assisi is behind the gold and richness ofnen shown by those who are called to be Your servants, while there are million of people who suffer in the World.

So here is my humble plea: If You are really among those walls, Shed  a Great LIght upon those who are called to elect the new Pope so that His ways will be as Jesus requested of
simplicity and trasparency. a real Sheperd that can show the World that Jesus is still among us human beings in the way HE  taught us.

My pick is Sean O’ Malley

(I know that You don’t need suggestions but at least I casted my vote)

I’ve used Blogger for 3 years, but now everyone tells me that WordPress is superior for SEO. After scouring many sites, I’ve been unable to find the SEO advantages to using Blogger – are there any?
