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.

Ordinary Weird: the Remake!

Ordinary Weird: the Remake!

March 14, 2020

This is another amazing photo remake of the original comic from Marta! Soon after landing in the US, we’ve immediately noticed how easy you meet people dressed up weirdly. I don’t mean when you put on the first shirt at hand just to go out 5 minutes and buy the milk, no. I mean: really […]

December 31, 2019

Awesome: this year my favorite picture is also the one that YOU have clicked the most. Cool: we have common tastes when it comes to photography! I chose ONE to close the 2019, a year that I will remember for several positive personal experiences and, photographically, for some longer term projects. Those projects will require […]

Meaningful Critical Street Shots (MCSS)

December 4, 2019

It’s quite some time I don’t write about street photography so it’s time now for me to go into something more theoretical than usual. In the past couple of years a photographic concept captured my attention. After shooting thousands of street pictures (many thousands, actually) either in small towns, villages or big cities and metropolis […]

Thanks for Thanksgiving 2019

Thanks for Thanksgiving 2019

November 29, 2019

We arrived exhausted at the end of November: Thanksgiving 2019! The year has been extremely intense, lot of work and less space for us compared to the years in the Middle East. We’ve been delighted by our friends and former neighbors who invited us for dinner: they’ve been travelling the world for work, with all […]

Thanks to Dave for suggesting us the Renaissance Festival: a huge event in Todd Mission, about 1 hour and a half from home. According to the organizers, each year over six hundred thousand people attend to the fest: my first concern when I hear these numbers is always: ‘how about the parking?’. Followed by other […]
