I was photographing an orchid while I saw “something” very bright appearing from below. It was this little shiny green gecko, who did not feel afraid of me, actually he was flirting with the camera until many curious visitors arrived and started flashing him – he did not like flashes at all, so he left.

Photographer: Silvia Casali (Reggio Emilia, Italy) Registered
Silvia Casali started experimenting with photography during summer 2010, after she received her first camera as a birthday gift. She had never before been fascinated by photography, because she thought it was not that creative of a process, just a very objective representation of reality. But soon she realized that she was wrong. Even though photography is not her main profession, since that very moment she has tried to practice photography almost every day, learning a little bit of the science related to it. Silvia is grateful to her teachers and friends at Fotografiaprofessionale, who testing her creativity and sensitivity to transform her pictures into something similar to art.
