I recently discovered this service from theprintspace called thehub that lets you setup a gallery of pictures and an easy shopping cart system. The prints are made and delivered by them. The quality is impressive. So, I created one with my “Low Tide” pictures here. Maybe you’d like to order some of them. 🙂 P.S. Of course, […]Read more "Selling!"
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 […]Read more "Regent’s Canal"
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 […]Read more "Sisters"
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 […]Read more "A cloud in the sky"
Just think a bit about what has happened last weeks in London. Now just think in a different way as you may usually do. Let’s just call things with a different name, and ask some (really silly) questions. There are people, who claim being in some kind of special relationship with a very powerful imaginary […]Read more "To my imaginary friends (2)."

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 […]Read more "Mobile pictures (4)"
The hypothesis of God, for instance, gives an incomparably absolute opportunity to understand everything and know absolutely nothing. Give man an extremely simplified system of the world and explain every phenomenon away on the basis of that system. An approach like that doesn’t require any knowledge. Just a few memorized formulas plus so-called intuition and so-called common sense.

A gallery of pictures taken at Brompton cemetery, in London. I visited this Victorian cemetery a few weeks ago. A cold, cloudy with drizzle day. Very appropriate for the mood of the place. I enjoyed it. A very quite and peaceful place.Read more "Brompton Cemetery"
Such a great and inspiring photographer. I saw an exhibition with some of his pictures, some time ago, in London, at the Photographer’s Gallery. Pictures of ordinary things, mundane scenes of his life and places, things that could pass inadvertently to anyone else but him. The proof that you don’t really need fancy trips to […]Read more "Saul Leiter: In no great hurry."
Here goes another set of pictures I took some time ago, also in the summer of 2015. The weather was nice enough to do some visits to coastal places in Norfolk, a region here in England I like lots. This time was in Cley Next the Sea. I went there with a friend, and we walked […]Read more "Cley next the Sea"
Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time – when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.
