Nature

Last weekend I went to my mom’s village up in the mountain in Gredos, Ávila. Every time I need to scape and recharge my batteries I go there. The weather is amazing, so cold at night that even in the summer you need to sleep with a blanket or wear long sleeves (fyi: I live in the hot hot hot Madrid), the silence is golden, if you listen carefully you can hear the sound of the water flowing on the plaza’s fountain.

With almost no signal on your phone, it’s the perfect place to evade your daily life and problems. And the perfect place to take this kind of photographs.

Gainsborough

I don’t know why but this photograph reminds me of Thomas Gainsborough’s paintings… Is it maybe because of the idyllic landscape?

On the other hand, I’m not very happy with the results of this photograph… I took it with a Kodak Vision 3 50D and even though it has an incredible exposure latitude, I think I didn’t take everything it has to offer out of it……. Maybe I’ll try again in a different setting.

Street ninja

When I visited Valencia last April I was really surprised by the incredible amount and quality of graffiti… I crossed paths countless of times with this street ninja (?) made by the hand of David de Limón. I have to confess this one was my reference in El Carmen neighbourhood for not to get lost…

** Sorry for the quality of the photograph… I don’t have a scanner so I had to take a photo with my phone…

Flowers

A couple of days ago I bought a lens kit for my phone, I wanted to try the macro and the fisheye lens. Well… the last one isn’t what I expected, I’m not very happy with the results (but it’s better than the “wide angle” lens, not very useful), but I loooove the macro lens, I tried it on Saturday at El Capricho Park (an awesome park in Madrid you must visit if you’re in town)

These flowers got to me 💚

 

** By the way, the photos were taken with a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, pretty good camera…
