Un Paio d'Ali - A Pair of Wings

<p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>Since my first skydive I realized that having the ability to see things from above is a privilege. Taking pictures of what I do is for me a way to make who looks at the photos participant of the deep beauty of things seen from this perspective. All this gives an added value to each shot, full of emotion and awareness of the uniqueness of every moment caught by the lens.</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> <i>                   I took some photographs...</i></p> <p>  </p> <p> <i><img alt="Gopr1547-1431809925" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/199054/GOPR1547-1431809925.JPG"></i></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> This is a jump of my AFF course, the one that allowed me to jump alone.

Allocation of funds

<p>  </p> <p> The money collected will support the costs of my skydives in order to take pictures that will be included in the photo book that will be realised both on paper and digital version. More specifically, in fact, a single jump has the cost of € 72, which includes: equipment rental, cost aviation fuel, facilities and personnel involved. This is repeated for more launches in order to have the chance to take more pictures and capture the greatest number of events. The photographic equipment adds a cost of 300 €. The photographs shown in the links were taken over a period of about 70 launches.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> For more details and any questions I am always available, I will reply as soon as possible every message.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FHYg0qgqk_XI%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DHYg0qgqk_XI&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FHYg0qgqk_XI%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p>
