A picture from a recent trip to Israel. To be honest, the last place I ever imagined to be visiting anytime soon, but a friend of mine asked me to do the trip together, and I just couldn’t say no. We spent a day driving around Mitzpe Ramon, in the Negev desert. Amazing place, otherworldly landscapes. I’ll share here more pictures of this trip soon.
Some pictures I took some months ago in London, while doing a walk from Little Venice to Camden Lock. Actually, part of it wasn’t a walk but a narrow boat trip. You can hire one easily and in 40 minutes do the route along Regent’s Canal. A nice way of spending a sunny Saturday in London.
Interesting interview I found while doing the course Seeing Through photographs. I enjoyed lots doing this course. Its not about technical stuff with cameras, but more oriented to the themes, uses, subjects, and people who have made photography the thing it is today. I’ve learnt lots, and even after having finished the course, I see I still have lots more to learn.
I hadn’t heard about Nicholas Nixon before. I found this interview very moving, quite possibly because of that project of the Sisters. I often see pictures of people as memories of loved ones, and here Nicholas Nixon is showing his love for his wife, and her sisters in a very particular way. A really long term project.
Its been a while without posting pictures here. I’m more into Instagram this days, more immediate and quick. But I still manage to have some time to take pictures of places and things, on trips or walks around places. I still enjoy doing this, even at times when I’ve felt like I don’t like anything at all. Maintaining this blog has never been a chore or a burden, but trying to put some order to what to share is difficult and time-consuming, more when you are busy with work, and other stuff. Someone has told me recently that I should make the effort to show more of my photography. Maybe even try to prepare an exhibition!. Who knows, it could be a goal for this year, the year I said it was going to be the one without expectations! 🙂
Meanwhile here is just a picture of a cloud in the sky, taken one afternoon from one window at my place. I think it was in Weybridge. I have almost forgot about that place. Thankfully.
Another small gallery of pictures I’ve taken in the last year. Basically, places with trees. I am always attracted to trees, I don’t know why, I like to take pictures of them. What I’ve noticed too selecting this pictures is that they are very dark. I guess it comes with the mood of this last year. Comes to my mind too, that some day I’d like to visit Iceland. I see pictures of waterfalls and northern lights there and the news about volcanoes ready to erupt, and it all seems fascinating to me. Music from Bjork or Sigur Ros is quite often in my headphones while working or relaxing at home. TV shows like Trapped give me the shivers (literally) with those cold landscapes and its crime mysteries. But there are not many trees there, I heard. Perhaps it is an interesting place to escape from all this BREXIT nonsense. Have you been in Iceland?
