…but instead is snowing right now. Climate change? Anyway, I wanted to post this picture after the dark black and white pictures from last post. There are things much more colourful here, and a visit to Cambridge Botanical Garden always helps. I took this one using my 30 years old 50 mm f2.0 lens, great for flower pictures […]Read more "Spring should be here…"

There is only one red capsule in London Eye. This way, people can see how fast (or slow) this gigantic wheel rotates. I think it is called the Cupid’s capsule, but the red pill symbolizes the painful truth in some famous Science fiction film.Read more "Take the red pill"
When I first saw the trailer of Solaris, I thought that it could be a good science fiction film. I love Science fiction. There is something that I have always enjoyed about science fiction, since I was a child and I saw Forbidden Planet or War of the Worlds or Starwars! Films that almost everyone who likes science […]Read more "Solaris"
I took this one in Leeds Castle, in Kent, UK. After visiting the castle and its surroundings I ended almost at night in a small amusements park where children could spend a bit of time playing in this things, and their parents relax a bit having a coffee. Or just grab some pictures, as I did. I […]Read more "Carnival"

Just some pictures I took a bit of time ago. These are some of the places you can find in Mill Rd., Cambridge. It is a very multicultural street, you can find food and shops from around the world and some nice coffees to keep you warm in winter. There is also a cemetery close […]Read more "Mill Road at night."
I saw this person sitting in the bench in a park close to my office. I needed to get out for a moment and I wandered around with my camera. It was the first snow of that winter. Also, it was one of my first winters in Cambridge. I like the concrete patch under the bench.Read more "Solitary figures (3)"
…is mostly cloudy, always. Don’t underestimate the British weather. Even British people hate it. After a few years here I understand why they come to Spain for holidays or retirement. Why as soon there is a bit of sun, they all go outside to catch a bit of energy from our star. Winters are miserable, someone told me when I […]Read more "The UK weather forecast…"
A view from Palacio de Cibeles in Madrid. It’s another place I’ve never been before, until recently, in that visit I did as a tourist. The first picture of this series is here. What other places have you visited after years and found somehow different?Read more "Urban landscapes (2)"

Seen on twitter, I should have read a bit about this photographer. What do composition rules mean to you? Do you know about them? Do you need them? Are they useful to you? Do you break them? Or you just don’t care…
A view from Circulo de bellas artes terrace in Madrid. It’s a place I’ve never been before, until recently, in a visit I did as a tourist. Once you go abroad, you look back at familiar places in a completely different way. The blue sky and golden light in the sunset was amazing. A bit of […]Read more "Urban landscapes"
