Imaging Spain…

Imaging Spain…

We spent ten days in Spain. It is an enjoyable part of the world. Kind people, interesting scenery. The places that we ventured were typically outside the tourist map. And that always is a good thing… Images from Gijon, Ribadeo, Viveiro… all Spain. Stay tuned… -Noah D.

Revolution #974,089…

If you cover many international “incidents” – and I’ve only covered a few – but there seems to be one major thing in common. Its almost possible to boil it down to a stereotype. There is the side that makes a lot of noise. Usually its a small group of people that makes a lot

In the middle and Seville…

Seville, I honestly knew almost nothing about before this day. I did not realize that much of the United States’ evolution and development can be directly traced to things going on in Seville. It was pretty much the capital of the known world of seafaring back in the day. For instance, Amergo¬†Vespucci¬†drew up the maps

Behind the bull ring…

No, really. Matador and all… Driving through these tiny Spanish towns, when one is extremely busy – packed with people and cars – its probably a festival. There’s one every other weekend in Spain, anyway. And also, there’s probably going to be a bull fight to go along with it. No pictures of the fight

Driven to an ancient road…

Driving the countryside of southern Spain in a rented car… …going places where trains don’t run and the bus system is prohibitively slow and unreliable. Its tough, the road systems don’t make sense, its a workout driving through some of these one-lane roads, back-roads and side streets. Aracena, Spain. In the local Spanish dialect: “Arathena.”

The brief seconds of Madrid…

The brief seconds of Madrid…

Sometimes, I will make a photo that, if I only took one that entire day – sometimes entire week! – I would be content. For some reason, something technically, aesthetically, compositionally… something “clicks” at just the right moment. Now, the caveat of this… for some reason, they are photos that some people don’t actually like!

Got some Spain-ing to do…

Okay, I’m just going to have to apologize for that title… I’m sorry. And you’re seeing these posts retro-dated. Post-dated. Whatever-dated. The photos were made on the day of the post and I’m just getting to it because… …ya know what, nevermind. Not important. What is important is there are images. And they’re street stuff

Well enough alone…

Well enough alone…

I just had a small taste of the kiteboarding the other day… What can make photos better? Closer, usually helps. Good subjects do a lot, too. But… if you’re looking for photos to truly pop, go for dynamic light. And, I’m not even talking about “dramatic” lights… even though that usually goes hand in hand.

Between the beach and myself…

See, if you’re in a spot like Tarifa, Spain, one of the kiteboarding centers of the universe… photographs of kiteboarders kiteboarding are just unavoidable. If you point the camera towards the beach, you’ll probably catch one – or seventy – in the frame. Still, photographs of kiteboarders kiteboarding all up in their space… …that’s where

Complete situational unawareness…

In a place like Tarifa, Spain, you must keep your head about you at all times… …because, if you’re not careful, you will become a local. No doubt, the beauty of such places captures people. It sucks them in. And, like our friends here, they just never leave. After being in jolly ol’ England only

If you look reeeeeeeally closely, you might be able to see America… because that’s what’s on the other side of this: Tarifa… its Lands End for Europe. It doesn’t get any closer to Africa. In fact, from Tarifa, you can see Africa… and Morocco. There’s some foreshadowing going on here. Stay tuned, -noah d. PS:
