Playground!



Havana, Cuba.

I'm currently thinking about making a return to Cuba, I really do feel like I'm not finished with place and a part of me wants to return!! I think tho, next time I return, I will concentrate my efforts solely on Havana and really try to explore every aspect of it!

Moulin Rouge



Pigalle, Paris, France.

Again, carrying on from my last post.. One of the places i thoroughly enjoyed shooting by night was Pigalle in Paris. And for all the reasons i love night street photography, the neons lights, the reflections... Great place for it!

Comes in Twos's!



Champs-Élysées, Paris, France.

It's been a short while since i last updated this blog, motivation to do so can be quite low at times..

Lately, i've been doing alot of night time street photography, it's my preferred type, especially in wet conditions due to the color reflections off the ground. Iit' also to do with when i actually get time to go out and photograph.. Because of this, i buy "fast" lens, lens with an aperture of either f1.4 or f2.8, the larger the number (ie, f1.2, f1.4, f2.8 large F numbers, f22 small F number) the larger the hole in the lens to leave more light in, hence faster shutter speed and very shallow depth of field, which can be a downside to some, whereas i love it..

Red Socks



Millennium Bridge, London, England.

Just another shot taken in London circa October 2008. This is another prime example of my laziness when it comes to editing my shots after a trip, well, maybe not editing, but more like sharing... A whole year and a half before this one saw the light..

Against the tide!



Camden Town, London, England.

I love visiting London, i go quite a bit.... The shot above was taken in Camden Town, i hadn't been there in nearly 3 years and thought it was about time to revisit the place. The only problem i have with London is that i've never been totally comfortable taking pictures there, i don't know why and i think it is reflected in my photography from London.. I need to get to source of that and fix it...

Inch Strand



Inch Strand, Co. Kerry, Ireland.

Inch Strand is a place that has been photographed a million times before and generally with these places it's hard to to be original with composition and the photograph in general.. With this shot, at the time, there was sand whirling all around our feet, i wanted to try and capture the madness of it, by positioning the camera low to ground and snapping an ants perspective of the strand.. Generally with any other camera i wouldn't try this at all, because sand damaged gear is not good, thankfully my camera and lens are both fully sealed, so i get away with alot...

Paris



Paris, France.

Some things just catch your eye. This bright purple/pink bag did, on an otherwise incredibly dull day in Paris..

Happy New Year, hope you have a great 2010.
