When you look through old pictures and come across one you’ve forgotten about. Lisbon is one of my favourite cities.
Stumbled on this gem of a shop a few days ago. So much detail and color. I asked to take pictures, while eavesdropping on three old guys swapping stories from their time in military. One word: great.
Before my trip I said I wasn’t going to the Hermitage, but I went anyway (to hide from the rain for a while!). Not how I usually sepnd my time travelling. Sharing a few pictures anyway.
Even in the city, I look for my favourite color.
New experiments in film. A few simple images from London. Oxford str, Paddington station, Harrow.
The sun was out today in London, so I decided to head out for a walk with my Lumix, so I can continue to get to grips with it. I’ve seen it from the train a few times, passing Kensal Green, so decided to finally hop of the train here to check out Kensal Green cemetary. I also wanted to check out an exhibition at the Dissenters’ Gallery. There are lots of interesting textures and angles and lots of cool greenery and birds here; a surprisingly nice and interesting place for a walk. I didn’t find it depressing, but I also didn’t spend much time reading messages on gravestones. I just enjoyed the oldness, the greeness and the general tranquility. I never managed to find the gallery, hidden somewhere on the grounds, but it was worth the visit anyway. Here’s a few ivy-heavy cross-proccessed (x-pro) shots I took:
Impromptu spring walk. Somehow all the weight on my shoulders are lifted and disappear with the breeze among these branches. So much love for nature.
A quiet moment when the noise of the world looks and feels far away. Shot on my Konica C35 at Camden Arts Centre.
Berlin (Dec 2016):
London (Jan 2017). Two pretty good portraits on this film.
I’ve just returned from my 5th (I think?) visit to Berlin over the last few years, and again I have loved spending time in this cool city. It was overcast and raining / misting most of the time, so I wasn’t expecting much from the pictures I took, but I’m pretty damn happy with some of these. Forget photographing momuments, this is the city. Film used: my go to Kodak Gold 400ASA. The featured images is the view from the steps coming out of Eberswalder str U-bahn station in Prenzlauer Berg.
Few shots in Freidrichschain, between Warschauer str and the East Side Gallery / Oberbaum bridge:
En route to Kreuzberg coming from M10 tram going via U8 at Bernhauer str. There’s a Berlin Wall memorial just out of sight to the right of this shot:
A few shots in the city centre (Mitte), with the sun starting to break through the rain:
Blonde on blonde on U2:
It’s been mentioned to me the last few years that I do not take enough “people pictures”. This is true, and in fact I’m trying to rectify this at the moment! When I was growing up however, I had one always-there subject in my younger brother. Just because he was always there, though, doesn’t mean he was always willing to be photographed. It often took a bit of begging and/or nagging, and often he would ruin shots by pulling awful faces, or looking especially mopey. Maybe I treasure those pictures the most. I’m really missing the guy today; 6000 miles away. Thanks for letting me click away, bro.
