Unfinished Business!

Vivo en un Pais Libre.

Krakow, Poland on way to Auschwitz..

When in Krakow, Poland recently i took every opportunity available to shoot. This particular shot was taken from the car (back seat) on our way from Krakow to Auschwitz. I've wanted to shoot eastern european countryside and sights ever since my trip to that region back in 2007.

Cork City Stop Motion

Cork City Stop Motion from Alan Cotter on Vimeo.

Video Shot in Cork City, Ireland.

This is my first proper attempt at stop motion photography. "Cork City Stop Motion", with my Canon EOS 5D MKll + Remote Timer mounted on the car dash (very awkward to do so) i drove around the city and north side surburbs and shot this.. Enjoy.

Music is "Fragments" by Autamata from the album "My Sanctuary".

Reflection in Krakow!

Vivo en un Pais Libre.

Krakow, Poland.

Taken on the way to the Salt Mine using an iPhone 4..

As a camera i actually quite like using the iPhone 4, i was debating which high-end compact to get, but since using this guy, i'm just gonna hold off on that... The worst thing about using an iPhone or any compact for that matter in a scenario like the one this shot was taken in, is that everyone who cares to look can see exactly what your shooting.. The above scene was tricky enough, but it wasn't as obvious as you would expect as to what exactly i was taking a picture of with my iPhone 4 pointed towards a window wall of a side entrance bus door!!

Canary Wharf, London.

Another example of my laziness when it comes to my photography and my editing. This shot was taken back in 2008, it's not one my strongest shots, but i do kinda like it. I was debating whether to keep it color or make it black and white, i preferred the color.

Light breaking through in the Medina.

Fes, Morocco.

One of the most interesting things for me about these medina's in Morocco is the little pockets of light everywhere, it adds alot of drama to these places and they already have enough...

Moroccan Sunset!

This shot was taken is Asilah (or Assilah), Morocco within the the old and incredibly beautiful old medina. I will say one thing to you tho, if you do ever visit the medina in Asilah and if you then expect all medina's in Morocco to be like this, you are very wrong! Personally i like dirt, the dirtier and grittier, the more it appeals to me as a photographer.
