Waves

Looking at this photographs while listening to piano music feels almost as being there, the combination of nature and black and white film feels as something opposite and thus complementary.

Or maybe it’s just that I feel melancholic today.

In the woods

Even though I love big cities and hectic places, sometimes I feel the need to escape of it all and run away to the mountains, to charge my batteries and just feeling the breeze and listening to the trees rustling.

There’s a place that feels magical, a hidden treasure into the woods, with temples, jizo statues and a calm that seems incredible to find. It’s Nikko.

I wish I could be there …

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.

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…

Snow

Some photos of Nikko to refresh a bit this (horrible) heat wave (40ºC in Madrid today!!)

Un par de fotos de Nikko para refrescar esta (horrible) ola de calor (¡40ºC en Madrid hoy!)

Wires

A few weeks ago I went to a workshop on how to develop black and white film… it was really interesting and adictive! For now, I’ve developed four films (3 of 135 and 1 of 120), here is the result of one of them.

I’m not quite sure about the quality of the scan though. I need another one, soon.

Hace unas semanas fui a un taller sobre revelado en blanco y negro… fue muy interesante, ¡y adictivo! Por ahora, he revelado cuatro carretes (3 de 135 y 1 de 120), aquí está el resultado de uno de ellos.

Aunque no estoy muy segura de la calidad del escaneo. Necesito otro, pronto.
