Mostly photography and some other musings.

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?

Sorry for the delay between posts. I should try to be more regular from now. Here is my entry for this Weekly Photo Challenge. The first picture is from my last holidays in Portugal. From the top of a cliff. I like the sea texture. The tiny boat gives scale to the thing. The second one was taken from my window, in the place where I was living until a month ago. Possibly, I was preparing another blog post, like I am doing now. Does a double rainbow mean double treasure? And the third one is a rowing team practising in the river Cam, in Cambridge. That picture came that way, without any crop. Not sure about the composition, but I like it. Also, I took it one of my first days here In Cambridge, when everything seemed to me new and interesting. I was in the honey moon phase, I think…

Long time since last post! As I said, I’ve had some busy period of time in the past weeks. Now that I’m back at home, I will try to post more often.  I’m working on editing and processing almost 400 pictures I took during my visit to Salt Lake City. Hint: look at my twitter feed in my menu… 😉

Here you have a few more pictures taken in Lisbon. These are from Tagus riverside. There is a really long walk from Belen, where you can see the Discoveries Monument, to the harbour just down Alfama, where that gigantic ship was waiting for tourists. Midway in between you can sit and watch the sunset in front of the Praça de Comerço. This was in December, but it didn’t feel like that at all.

I miss Lisbon.

Taken a year ago, one of those rare days where the light is not just grey.
Someone at work asked me today if I was thinking about leaving Cambridge some day. Apart from those adaptation issues I mentioned here, I don’t find a compelling reason to do so. Things in Spain are not going great this days. And I still feel passionate about some things here, like my work, and there are still lots of places in UK I would like to visit. Today I was reading this article about the best quiet beaches in UK. Lets see if now that summer is here (today was a bit chilly though) I have time to do some trips and take new pictures.
