Works In Progress

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Coming up is the ten-year anniversary of my first sight of Isola d’ Ischia. Below is a video I took of the ferryboat coming into the harbor. Yes, I know. The camera shake is quite distracting and I need to work on a more professional shooting style. You might say this is more like a record shot, like you take at family gatherings or at Christmas, which has mainly personal significance.

This is still a work in progress. I am going to add a voice-over that will touch on the emotions that flooded over me when the boat pulled into the harbor.

We are all waiting for your add-on and return... Auguri! For your anniversary.

P.S. I remember you told me at Elio's your impressions about the first time you saw the Porto, like "homecoming", is it true?

P.P.S. Elio's doesn't exsist anymore, sorry, I'm so sad...

Yes, it was a truly magical moment that I'll never forget. Everything looked familiar, as if I'd been there before. By the time the Ape taxi got me to Hotel Lord Byron half an hour later, I knew I had to live on that beautiful island!

Sorry to hear that Elio's is no more. I recall many long, intriguing discussions with you at our table near the door.


During the last week or two I have been sorting through the videotapes I shot in 1999 when I first arrived. I'm happy that I so fully documented my experience.
