Artist Spotlight # 50

Submitted by mimi 05/06/10 6:50 AM GMT

Our May artist to be spotlighted is from Italy. He has a varied gallery which I encourage all to visit but which appears to favor architecture. I present to you Ed1958 aka Edoardo.
Enjoy his bio below and leave a few words!

First of all I thank you for your kind thoughts. Im happy for this opportunity. I found Caedes site by chance, looking for a photo site to learn how to improve my technique. Here I met some wonderful people and great photographers I really admire and who gently encouraged me. At this moment my thoughts and gratitude go to them, Tick, Jimbob, OWD Bob, Raj, Susanne, Erja, Nik, Kim Cornelius, Christophe, Catweasel, LanJockey, Joy, Marcaribe, JPK40, CaseChaser, Genver, Tom (Tomeast), Verena, Pat Susiesum, Rob2001, Gabi, LynEve, Cinlee and many others I thank for Their feedback.

I use a Fuji Fine Pix SH 2000 and I Nikon Coolpix. For managing photo Framework I use Aperture with my IMAC Intel 8gb Ram 2 Terabyte HD. I was born in Rome, 52 years old and live in a small village far from the Capital: Genazzano. Its a medieval village that once was Prince Colonna dominion. Im working for a U.S. multinational Co. and Im specialized in payment systems (SEPA) I'm Bank Relationship Manager and Treasury Support. I am married, no children, I have a dog (Pincher) and a Cat (European long-haired). I wrote a book of philosophy and two books of modern poetry. I am a great reader and I'm lucky to have a personal library of over 2000 volumes. My preferred photos are generally speaking nature landscape, mountains, shorelines and digitals. Ive a particular feeling with architecture pictures as expression of the history of a people.

Thanks Caedes for this kind gift.

- Edoardo

It is really great to see you being honored as the AOTM, EDV. Your photos have come a long way to where you are now our resident expert in FDR/Architecture. You really are a quick learner and I am pleased to have known you since you joined.

They couldn't have chosen a more deserving member.

Your friend, Tick

Oh Edoardo, ( I think I am the only one that calls you that!)..I am so elated that you have gotten this honorable spot here in caedes! I have loved your many wonderful photos from the beginning of your time here in caedes. There is such beauty in your part of the world, and you know exactly how to capture it in the most beautiful way. You are a dear friend and I love the idea that you have so many books. I share that feeling with you. Poetry? I didn't know you had a published poetry book. How wonderful! As you probably know, I write poetry as well. I am just happy for you and us too, because we have gotten to know you and your part of this world...Thank you so much for your photography and your friendship. Verena
