Let’s move to West Yorkshire!

August 31, 2021

Our new home since December 2020 is the very green, very British and very full of history…. West Yorkshire!!! Our adventure in UK starts from Wakefield, a rather big city, 20 minutes from the more famous Leeds. We’ve got a temporary accommodation, just a few minutes walking from my Site. It’s full COVID time and […]

God Bless America…

August 10, 2021

I’ve been postponing this last post from Texas for 8 months now. Always looking for the right picture, the meaningful one before moving on following the story of our adventures towards another Country, City, Continent!! Well, apparently, I can’t find no picture that fulfills this ‘critical’ role, none that is meaningful enough. Possibly, I will […]

In August 2020 Hurricane Laura brought death and mayhem to the Gulf. Unfortunately over 30 people were killed through its deadly path till the landfall in Cameron, Louisiana and over 70 deaths will be the final count. The forecast models predicted the correct landing point just a few hours before the actual touch-down (something around […]

June 12, 2021

Independence Day in 2020 was… well, just like any other celebration during COVID: a pale image of what it could have been under more normal circumstances. This didn’t prevent us from wandering around the Harris County looking for signs of the event to come. So ‘Big Daddy’ with his Texas Outlaw and Red Rhino Fireworks […]

A Special 2020 Texan Summer – Part 1

May 27, 2021

OK, May 2020: another Summer is approaching and my Winter theory that the COVID would not stand the Texan heat is not supported by the numbers. For several reasons, none of which is of interest to this blog, my workload during the rest of the year ramped up exponentially. Add to this, the constant concern […]

365 Days Later

May 19, 2021

Exactly 365 days since my last post. We were eating Blue Bell ice cream like there was no tomorrow, no idea of what the next days, weeks and months had prepared for us. At that time, it was 19 May 2020, there was not a vaccine for COVID yet, travelling to Europe was possible but […]

It was early 2015 in a Saudi westerner compound, when we heard about Blue Bell ice cream for the first time. Our friend was so in love with this Texan brand that, according to her words, there was just nothing like it. We could not check out ourselves, though, but the curiosity grew. We still […]

It takes a Hero, sometimes, just to walk the line…. This picture taken while in line at HEB. Houston Strong! For mum: I was wearing a respirator and using a zoom lens (>> 6ft distance). Be safe!

Moving to a more abstract type of photography, playing with the depth of field, with  shadows and some light. Manual focus. And remember: always pick a fast lens.
