Gaudi’s Barcelona

I know this sounds terribly pretentious, but I can only recommend going to Barcelona to get a real sense of Gaudi’s creations. Photos don’t do him justice as the sheer magnitude of, for example, the Sagrada Familia is something you really experience relative to your own size. That said, you can still get some pretty shots.

Barca Blue

I’m finally getting round to posting some photos from Barcelona! It’s amazing the difference a blue sky makes. It was only about 18-20°C but sunshine and a blue sky makes everything feel warmer. Barcelona is extremely photogenic so expect more!



London Bridge way

I went on a little wander a few nights ago. I got off the bus early at Old Street and walked down to London Bridge (I’ve done that walk a few times and quite like it). Reaching London Bridge just after sunset, it looked really pretty so I took a few shots to share. I’m off to Barcelona in the morning for my annual long weekend jaunt with Sam, so I’m sure I’ll come back with some good photos!



A Polski Adventure

I wish I could sum up for you just how much I loved Gdansk. It’s pretty, historically rich and lively. We were there during the Santa Dominika festival and the city was buzzing. I can’t lie and say I did the full works in terms of seeing the sights – the itinerary for my cousin’s wedding was quite intense (lots of parties). But still, everyone left Gdansk in agreement that we would all love to go back soon. I was (predictably) worse for wear and asleep for the drive to the wedding venue (which was next to the beauuuuutiful lake pictured above) so I have no idea what the area was called, but it was about an hour and a half’s drive from Gdansk.



Berlin at sunset

 Bethany and I went for a wander through the outer centre of Berlin, beers in hand, as dusk approached.



Sunny intervals

Yet again it has been a while. I’ll admit I’ve just not had much of an urge to pick up my camera recently, except for photographing my friends. I doubt the sight of me and my friends posing away at parties makes for very appealing viewing. I had the day off yesterday and decided to go out and take some snaps as it was such a warm day. I visited Maash (whom you’ve met before) in Greenwich (more on that next time), then got the DLR back to Bank and took a long walk. I might as well be blindfolded around that part of London, but somehow I managed to navigate myself back to the West End to meet my friends for a late afternoon drink. And I didn’t even cheat and use the sat nav on my Blackberry. I’m getting better at this – I figure there’s no better way than getting a bit lost to learn my way around the different pockets of the city.

Having a flick through my photos, it becomes obvious that I like to capture things in contrast with the sky in different shades of blue. I’m trying to keep an eye on the kinds of things I like to photograph. Food is an obvious one, though I haven’t in a while. Perhaps that should be my next mission.
