A cup of tea

My trip to the Netherlands is being amazing, I’ve taken many analogue photographs with my LC-A, something I was looking for. I can’t wait to develop my films and see the results, but for the moment a quick Pola love in Rotterdam.

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…

Yellow

I took this photograph in Galway, Ireland, last summer. Even though the weather wasn’t as good as I wanted (I thought my cameras would drown on my backpack), I really enjoyed the views, the blue ocean and the different and eternal greens.

New old decay

I have a (strange) thing for old factories and industrial landscapes. They seem to have a halo of decay that surround them, a reminiscence of the past and an old symbol of technological progress.

This one was actually a thermal power plant now transformed into a museum about energy, in Ponferrada, León.

New old decay

Tengo un algo raro con viejas fábricas y paisajes industriales. Parecen tener un halo de decadencia que los rodea, una reminiscencia del pasado y un viejo símbolo del progreso tecnológico.

Ésta era en realidad una central térmica reconvertida en un museo sobre la energía, en Ponferrada, León.

The Shining

I took this photo last week in a hotel in Mataró, Spain. When I left the elevator and turn left to my room I saw this image and it reminded me of the movie The Shining, although I haven’t seen it nor read the book… (that’s how collective imagination works… but that’s another story)

Tomé esta foto hace una semana en un hotel de Mataró, en España. Cuando salí el ascensor y giré a la izquierda camino de mi habitaciónvi esta imagen y me recordó al instante a la película El Resplandor, pese a que no la he visto ni he leído el libro… (así es como trabaja el imaginario colectivo, aunque esto es otra historia)
