Framing the Picture

For a while now (a long time) I’ve wanted to print some of my photos and frame to decorate our appartment. A few weeks ago I finally did it!

I have to say there is something very special about taking your photos out of the digital world. I took me a while to finally choose which images I wanted to print first. I spent a good 5 days browsing back and forward in my photo archives until I finally chose these four photos.

I took them at least a year and a half ago during summer in a beautiful beach called Vilasar de Mar. I actually did a post of it back then. You can check out here!

So, if you have been thinkin about printing any of your pictures, I really recommend you do it. It’s amazing to wake up every morning or come home from work and have you images greeting you next to that cup of coffee o reming you that there will be brighter days.

Three months, 500 pictures, a thousand experiences

Playing Bubbles

7,492 kilometers. Yes, that’s the exact distance I traveled before changing my life completely. Seven thousand four hundred and ninety two kilometers. That is the distance from Caracas, Venezuela to Barcelona, Spain. This, strictly, in geographical terms, of course.

With a suitcase in each arm, a bag over my shoulder and my other half next to me, I arrived to Barcelona April 6, 2013. Since that paradoxical day, neither my SD memory or mi own, are enoguh to document everything I’ve experienced.

And, since I’ve been here, the word “routine” word has no meaning for me. Each day followed to April 6 is completely new and different. This, as far as photography is concerned, it is like a dream come true.

My camera never had the opportunity to see so many things. In these ninety days she has been freed from the four walls between which, monotonously, she lived bounded from the world, for reasons beyond her will. Now she is experiencing, next to me, a world of new images.

Here in the old continent, my camera and I are inseparable. We go everywhere together. And that is as it should be for any photography lover. Thus, it is the only way not to lose unique moments andd experiences.

With this new found freedom for both of us, I had the opportunity to capture stunning images. This new life has opened my eyes and my camera lens, teaching me that, to take good photographs, practice and ingenuity, are a must.

As they say, practice makes perfect. But we must never, ever dismiss the purity that a spirit moved by novelty can do for us.
