Jamie's Italian

Untitled by Vespamore !
Untitled, a photo by Vespamore ! on Flickr.
I'm no expert chef or anything but I can cook a mean Spaghetti Bolognese & follow a recipe pretty well; my forte being Italian food. We have various Jamie Oliver cookbooks, Bill Granger's books are also a fave in our house & just recently I got 'Two Greedy Italians' by Gennaro Contaldo & Antonio Carluccio which is excellent, (I can highly recommend it & great photography too). I find it really annoying paying for average restaurant food & being 'fleeced' £60-£80 for my wife & I to eat a meal; eight times out of ten we say we could have done better than that at home!

However, 'Jamie's Italian' restaurants (a joint venture between Jamie Oliver & Gennaro Contaldo) are an exception to my unfortunate rule. I've only eaten in the Oxford restaurant (twice) but the food was lovely & reasonably priced, for once I left feeling content ; ) I passed the recently opened Jamie's Italian at Angel Islington & had to shoot this Ape 3-wheeler outside. I took this with my Olympus OM10 on 35mm film (800ASA) on a 5-second shutter speed to intentionally achieve this effect - quite like how this came out.

See the same shot with correct shutter speed here http://www.flickr.com/photos/gs3vespa/6188570625/in/photostream

Signore Bialetti

Apeccino

Untitled, a photo by Vespamore ! on Flickr.
One of my personal fave shots I've taken.

I took this in March 2009 outside Kentish Town tube station. I parked the Spanish Vespa Sprint 150 I owned at the time by the 'Bean About Town' Ape, which has a pitch here & serves coffee daily.

The shot was taken in bright sunlight on bulb setting (approx 5 second shutter speed) on 35mm film with my Olympus OM10 manual SLR camera. Like how this came out with the movement. See more of my best vespa shots here on main website http://www.vespamore.com/vespa

150 years of Italian style

Emilio Pucci at work

Italy's contribution to style is unquestioned; explore landmark moments from the last 150 years with the Guardian newspaper's timeline of Italian cultural history 
http://www.guardian.co.uk/italian-style?INTCMP=ILCSPRTXT3919
Naturally, one of my fave moments would be in 1946 when Piaggio's Vespa designed by Corradino D'Ascanio debuted at the Milan Fair.

THE ROLLING STONES’ 1972 AMERICAN TOUR

Keith Richards & Mick Taylor of The Rolling Stones on stage, 1972 –Image by © Ethan Russell

“Some of my most outrageous nights– I can only believe actually happened because of corroborating evidence.  No wonder I’m famous for partying!  The ultimate party– if it’s any good– you can’t remember it.” 
–Keith Richards 

Re-blogged from the excellent Selvedge Yard blog, see here 
http://theselvedgeyard.wordpress.com/2011/09/20/the-rolling-stones-1972-american-tour-stp-stones-touring-party/#more-27275 

I would have loved to have seen the Exile on Main Street tour in '72 but would've been difficult having being born this year! I got the Exile album recently which is excellent; I can see why many see it as one of their best. I did get to see the Stones years later at Wembley stadium in 1990 when they were touring the Steel Wheels album; still rates as one of the best gigs I've seen.

Style epitomised

Click image to view large

Love this shot of Asian-American actress Nancy Kwan, hair dressed by Vidal Sassoon and photographed by Terry Donovan for Vogue in 1968.

Came across this on Thierry Vincent's blog 'The Insight' - http://thvphoto-dv8.blogspot.com/

Welcome back !

Piaggio's Vespa PX has returned after a 3 year absence with an EU pleasing, cleaner burning 2-stroke engine & catalytic converter. Consequently it's a wee bit slower than the previous PX 125cc but who cares; there's nothing else with this much style on the scooter market. I for one am very pleased to see her back & will nearly always choose form over function.

Read Classic Scooterist Scene magazine's review of the new PX here http://www.scooteristscene.com/news/model-relaunch-vespa-px-rebirth-of-a-legend & you can visit Piaggio's Vespa site here
