Small Things With Tons of Weight

It’s been a long time since I last posted something on my blog. It’s been kind of difficult for me to get stuff done lately (lately being the last 4 months). Since we moved (yes we moved to new apartment!) I feel I haven’t been able to get into my life rhythm again.

Everything is taking me forever to get done, even little things like small house chores such as watering the plants or refiling a water jar.

That has become a problem. It’s getting to me emotionally and mentally. I know I have all this things I have and want to do, but seeing myself not able to get to them makes me feel bad and overwhelmed. So I end up curled up with a blanket on the couch or the bed during all my spare time not getting any closer to even starting to do all of these things. It a vicious cycle now, I think.

A photo of a very relaxing and happy moment

I just can’t seem to concentrate on doing anything. Even things I like and enjoy such as blogging, editing my YouTube videos, streaming or even playing video games. And there are SO many things I want to do. Maybe that’s even part of the problem. Could I be putting too much pressure on myself?

This morning I thought the important thing is to set a schedule. Maybe that’ll help? At least until I’m able to jump into the rhythm again. The things is, that to aby by a schedule you need to be discipline and I have to admit that self discipline is a knack I extremely lack of.

I hope this blog post is the first small step that helps me get back on track.

Roadtrip Nature Photography

It’s been a while since we went on a roadtrip.

Last weekend we went aways for a day and visited beautiful places that gave me the opportnity to practice nature and landscape photography. I took my time to snap each photo and then processed them using Lightroom.

I don’t know why, but every time we go on a roadtrip, the experience makes me feel more at home. The planning, getting the car, listeting to loud music while admiring the road sceneries, it feels right.

I also managed to do a short video for my new YouTube Channel. (Which I’m really excited about!)

I hope you feel at home too and have a beautiful week.

Textures

I’m not always too inclined to take photos of Textures. But it’s something that my brother has passed on to me a little bit. He’s a graphic designer and he has this great appreciation of textures. Many times that we are walking together and I have my camera he starts pointing textures (that I don’t even notice) for me to shoot.

This past weekend we went outside Barcelona for a barbecue. That was a very good scenery to take photos of textures. There where a lot of trees and leafs of the ground.

So this is my contribution for this Weekly Photo Challenge!

 

Warmer days are coming!

The Spring is officially here! Wohooo!

I’ve been over cold for quite a while now and I’m eager for warmer weather. I want to put away the coats and scarfs and feel the sun on my skin again.

We went to the beach a couple of weeks ago and it was quite nice then. But this past few days rain, clouds, wind and lower temperatures have taken over the city. So I thought to share this beach photo to warm my heart until better weather comes along.

No light, no photos

It’s been too long since I took my camera out of its bag. I haven’t taken photos is such a long time I’m in physical pain.

Right now it’s getting dark really early and I’m at work during daylight time so when I get home is already too dark for photos. And if you know me, you know I’m a sucker for natural light. So my camera has been sleeping in its bag for a while.

I was so desperate that yesterday I grabbed my camera out as soon as I got home and took, literally, three photos of Mango and a couple more of a plant before it was too dark.

It’s something at least! I’m planning some photoshoots for the upcoming weekends but the weather forecast is not good. It’s been raining a LOT in Barcelona lately so that makes the whole situation more complicated.

So I thought I could at least share an old photo and my frustration with you until I can go out with my camera again.
