Wonderful lighting in Burgos

There are places with excellent outdoor photography lighting (like the Giza Plateau in Egypt) and after visiting Burgos, this summer, I found another one: the square around its Cathedral. Could be the August sun, the white stone used for the Cathedral and the pavement, or the blue sky… but more likely it’s the mix of all these features.  Enjoy the amazing light of Burgos!

Hay lugares con excelente iluminación para la fotografía al aire libre (como la de Giza en Egipto) y después de visitar Burgos, este verano, he encontrado uno: la plaza alrededor de la Catedral. Podría ser ¨la culpa¨ del sol de agosto, de la piedra blanca utilizada para la Catedral y el pavimento, o del cielo azul pero lo más probable es que sea la combinación de todas estas características. ¡Disfrute de la increíble luz de Burgos!

Do you remember the summer ?! Second episode.

New old summer pictures from Madrid – there will be some from outside of Madrid in the future – from streets, parks and other places. Those pictures were never posted on my blog because the lack of time during the summer, but now, when it’s so cold and windy and rainy outside, I have more time to review and post those photos. Hope you will enjoy this “trip” through the summer.

Do you remember the summer ?! First episode.

“The endless summer!!”, was Scooter shouting in a techno dance hit few years ago and I was happily jumping on his refrain. Now I remember the summer days when I used to go to some parks and gardens and took pictures… I really miss those hot summer moments…

Circles of Joy

It’s all black&white… with a little of color, next to your imagination. Black&white it’s not only a decent scotch, but also my old love, does express a lot of feelings but not everything is free and easy to achieve.  Similar to life. Something is hidden, hard to say exactly what, but there is always something you can only see with your imagination, not with the eye. Well, those pictures were made on December 12, and only today, after some changes using those circles, I release them for your pleasure. There is not only a photographic effect, it’s also a metaphor, the world is so cold, gray, only with shadows and no colors, while the fun, the colors are constantly attacked and kept in narrow circles, the “circles of joy”. Very few of us have access into those happy circles. I invite you to let your soul free and join me in one of them.

Click on the pictures to see the full size of them, it’s a big difference in quality, due to the software compression used.
