Just another solitary person in Cambrige… The first one is here!Read more "Solitary figures (2)"
I have a backlog of games not played/to be finished. In the not finished list, I have some very lengthy ones, that I have no idea when I will be able to finish. And what is worse, I’m afraid that the moment I try to come back to them, I might have forgotten about what the game was. It […]Read more "Braid"
I have a bit of obsession with one point perspectives. It’s a kind of vertigo like effect. This one was taken also in Norwich cathedral. The lights in this part of the cloister were turned on already, and I had a lot of trouble with that, because a bit on natural light was still visible from the outside. Just playing […]Read more "One point perspectives."
This one is taken in the British Museum in London. I tried to emphasize the shadow and light patterns with local contrast and tonal adjustments. I applied some perspective and rotation correction to straighten the vertical and horizontal lines. I thought that black and white was better for this image. The shooting involved a bit of patience waiting for those museum stairs […]Read more "Upstairs"
Taken in Barrington, a small village close to Cambridge. A really small duck, though.Read more "duck in the pond"

And you think: I will be able to adapt quickly. I will improve my language skills. I will meet a whole lot of new people […]Read more "Living in a foreign country."
One solitary person walking in the snow, in Cambridge. River Cam looked like a mirror that day.Read more "Solitary figures"
The weather here has an interesting effect on brick walls. They end with great textures and rusty colours. Some of them are really old and that helps. Do you also take pictures of brick walls?Read more "Brick walls in England"
I recently watched “Anton Corbijn Inside Out” documentary. I found it particularly fascinating. For sure you have seen some of his famous photographs. If you ever have had an album from Joy division, U2, Rem, Nirvana, or Depeche mode, to name only a few, you have seen one. They are usually high contrast black and white, […]Read more "Anton Corbijn"
I spent only a day in Norwich. I liked it, and the cathedral there was a nice place to take some pictures. The city centre has a popular market. And there is even a castle! I would like to return soon, maybe in summer, along a visit to some Norfolk coastal places. I will post more pictures […]Read more "Norwich Cathedral"
Taken from Greenwich Royal Observatory, all photos processed with Darktable and stitched together with Hugin, great open source projects for image processing. I think It is important to use manual mode when taking pictures for a panorama. This way you can ensure a coherent exposure between all of them. Some stitching programs have auto exposure correction, but I […]Read more "London panorama"
