Carpe Diem, seize the day! After having worked hard for some 47 years, I opted for retirement in order to have more time for my hobbies. Now I can indulge in taking photos, playing the clarinet, reading, blogging, working in the garden and a long list of other things without stress or feeling guilty. I love it!
So finally I am trying to find my own voice in photography reading about it, looking at photos taken by professional and amateur photographers, visiting expositions and of course taking lots of photos.
And yes, I cannot help smiling when my eye catches something worthwhile registering with my camera and I succeed in taking the picture I want, right then and there or after editing. Happy moments!
Update 1 September 2017
After having experimented will different specializations for one year and a half it turns out that I love street photography. Women, men and children are so interesting to watch and therefore I tried my hand at capturing all kinds of people in all kinds of situations. It seems that I now am hooked!
The result is a new blog dedicated exclusively to street photos: The Photographer Roamed the Streets… You are very welcome to go and have a look. Comments will be appreciated.
Update 1 March 2021
It has been something over two years now that we have been living in Banyoles (Catalonia, Spain), a dream come true. Between getting settled and keeping sane and safe during the Covid nightmare kept me busy with other things. But now it seems that I am getting back to photography and trying out some new experiments. Some of them I will post here, others on my street photography blog. Thank you for looking round!
