Happy Mango.

Happy Spring.

Happy day!

Even though sometimes we don’t get the perfect framing, or the perfect exposure, or the perfect light, some photos are perfect for what they are, for what they make us feel and for what they represent. And this photo, to me, is perfect 🙂

Sometimes is important to not let technicalities get in our own way of really enjoying what we do. Perfection means something different for everyone and for everything.

Late Frost

A few days ago it was annouced that a frost would hit the city on Wednesday. The day past and we were sitting in the balcony, sweating with our sweaters on and wondering what happened with the cold as the sun shined to our faces.

Well, it turned out the news were half correct. The frost came today. We woke up at eight degrees Celsius (yeah I know, is not really a frost, but to us in Barcelona is tragic).

But the sun is softly shinning at we can still feel its warmth.

The Sun is Back

For the past few months the sun abandoned us. His absence opened the doors to unmerciful cold. No heat, no warm sun rays for so long.

However, cold afternoons and grey skies are over. The sun is back.

Sunny Plant

After having lunch a couple of days ago I saw a little bright spot on the couch brown fabric. I went to investigate and for my surprise it was a small spot of sunlight. I was so happy! So I just sat there, cuddling in the little spot while it grew into a big warm sun ray.

I closed my eyes I let the warmth embrace be. It was so beautiful how it passed through the new small plants on the table. The plants were happy and so was I. We have sunny afternoons again 🙂

A day at the beach

For me I think there’s nothing like a beach day . And last weekend I had a great one. I went, with the best company to Villasar de Mar, a town north of Barcelona.

I also had the opportunity to take a lot of pictures and I loved the results . At first it was a little afraid to face my camera to the breeze, water and sand but then, as the sunset approached the light became so spectacular that I could not resist . Of course I must add here that  I have a huge preference to photographing with this light. There’s something about that time of the day that is find very special.

Freezing waves

I spent some time photographing the waves. I loved how they lit up and I wanted to freeze the motion and light to remember, and share the feeling of peace they gave me. The sound of the waves crashing on the shore, the soft sunlight at its perfect temperature and the feeling of soaked sand under my feet.

Everytime I see pictures of waves, my attention is caught by the forms they make. Sometimes they seem more like if they were solid sculptures than water. So, I tried to capture some of that in my photos and I must addmit i’m pretty happy with the results.

Sand Macro

With such good lighting and this type of sand, I could not resist to take some macros. The beach is a beautifull picture when we put it together, but it’s always good to look at things a little more closely and appreciate all the details.

Here is a small gallery of the photos I took that day. There’s a bit of everything. Enjoy!


I enjoyed this day very much, especially now that I live in a new country where there isnt summer all year round . Iim starting to appreciatte and enjoy what each season has to offer. Soon I will have the opportunity, for the first time, to photograph winter. But for now we still have a little more summer to seize.

Summer is here!

Relaxing summer

Welcome August and welcome summer! Lots of sun, heat, blue skies and a little breeze. Definitely the harmony of all these elements brings us one of the most fun times of the year.

It seems that the weather conspires to bring us spectacular days, leaving us the only choice os being in a good mood. And how to resist, if you open the window in the morning and the sky, clear and blue greets you and the sun’s rays, without invitation, sneak through the window to say good morning.

Summer pictures

 

It is also a special time to share with our camera. The landscapes that the summer offers are unique. We have the opportunity to shoot, with amazing lighting, scenes that are only possible to witness in these months, and translate the feeling of this season to our images.

They are just months to enjoy. Whether or not we are officially on vacation, there’s something about summer that feels different and we must seize it.

Enjoy Summer

It’s time to breathe fresh air, go on picnics, go to the beach, hike and sunbathe. Go for a walk after work, study at the park, drink your favorite beverage, have a refreshing ice cream and take amazing photos so you can carry summer the rest of the year with you.
