Minutes Before Sunrise

I miss that period of my life where I didn’t need an alarm to wake me up at 5am nor do did I have to snatch my body back from the bed! That’s what I do these days to wake up early and have a moment of quiet and peace before reality strikes a few hours later.

A Walk in the Night: 11/May/2017 Midnight

I just came back home with these photos around an hour ago. I was itching to take some photos I couldn’t sleep. I had to go out an add a few more pieces to my Ingrained in the Night series.

The moon’s beautiful these days. I didn’t take as many photos as I’d hoped but I sure did enjoy the walk. I just love night walks. It’s quiet in the street and serene in my head.

The photo below is from the center of the town or perhaps the more lively part. Anyways, it’s not lively now as you can see.

A Walk in the Night 26/04/2017

Around two hours ago, I went out for a walk and I took a few shots for my Ingrained in the Night series.

Only three of the photos were decent enough to consider adding to the collection.

Picks From Feb. 1st 2017 Part 1: Textures

I took a walk in town with my camera two days ago, took a lot of shots. I spent yesterday processing most of them and now I’m ready to post them.

For this first collection, I picked all the photos that include any kind of texture in them.

I enjoy taking pictures of tree trunks. I love that no matter how many times I take pictures of the same tree, the texture almost always looks different within the frame.

These photos show one side of the same tree trunk. you can already see that; they’re not that different; but they are different in the way the texture conjures images in my head. I find that very interesting and enjoyable.

So I hope you liked the high-contrast textures. I’m not very into it but I never shy away from any subject that has photographic potential.

Next part will be Green & Blue.

[Journal] Impromptu post 12/01/17

Back to wordpress after a long absence.

I’m sort of lost in finding my way through both the material world and the virtual. I have lost sight of what’s outside the walls. I can only see the ghosts of things now and their fleeting interval of existence.

I indulge myself in my arts feeding off of this negative state. Trying to determine the path through color tones and language nuances even if most of the time they betray me.

I end up fading into a self I never knew before.

[Journal]Picks from Nov. 8th 2016

I love going out and taking long walks in autumn. It’s just that I don’t always do that even though I love it. I keep asking myself why. I guess I’m lazy, perhaps?! Anyways, yesterday was a good day for a hike. And I finally hit the road – the mountain road

I got my new mirrorless camera to enjoy along with a mixed playlist of Tim Bowness and Gazpacho songs.

As soon as clouds covered the sun my finger on the shutter button went crazy! I picked this photo to share from over 15 pictures. Don’t think it’s the best one. The rest are just duplicates and variations of the same scene. (a waste of shutter actuations!)

Soon after, it rained briefly I doubled back to the main road and what do you know? A rainbow! Unfortunately, I got distracted by a shepherd who thought I was lost and kept asking me questions. Well eventually, I got this decent shot of the rainbow.

The shepherd didn’t want me to take a picture of him. I settled for the sheep.

We kept talking for a while until it was time for me to go home. He was a nice guy. I wanted to shoot a portrait of him but like all people in my town; they’re simply not open to the idea yet. It’s understandable (but also a shame.)

Took those on my way back. As soon as I stepped into the house, the rain fell as if a dam in the sky broke!

I got comfortable indoors and spent the best part of the night editing photos on Lightroom.

Until next time. ^_^
