Anachronistic flowers

I found these real flowers while having a nice breakfast in Cologne. Beautiful colours creating a warm feeling to start the day. No digital retouch apart from resizing.

Phantasia Hotel

One of the PhantASIA Hotel corridors. I modified colours applying some layers and effects to get a more eerie feeling. The rest, a typical perspective shot I usually love. We had a really fun time in this hotel just exploring all the corners. The hotel is full of asian details.

Storm over Phantasialand

After midday the weather at Phantasialand got really worse. I found the use of the wide angle converter over the "Feng Ju Palace" ride building very interesting so I just took the shot. Colours in the original were already dull but I found that some tweaking over them would enhance even better the awful weather coming.

Last weekend I went to Germany. We went to Phantasialand theme park and to Cologne. Nice theme park and nice city. But very bad weather. We spent lots of time in cafes and this is where I took this photograph. A beatiful cafe near Cologne cathedral, full of people... drinking beer and eating nice food... great way to spend weekend!.

Home Impressions #2

Wrong ways...

Have you ever felt your life goes in the wrong way?. You're taking a misty and blue road and you cannot clearly see where are you going. You feel not right. You're not even sure this is the right road for you... Sometimes I just don't feel happy. But the misty and blue road is so easy to follow... There are no stop signs, and nothing to be seen in the far distance... What makes us happy?...

What makes me happy?

As we all have heard lots of time, happiness doesn't exist as a whole. If we are fortunate we can see some glimpses of it come and go...

Will these glimpses help us when the road becomes so blue and misty?. Everything looks fine until you realize you're in the wrong way...

It's time to find the exit.

I would like to dedicate this photograph to all the people that feel lost from time to time and struggles to find their place in this stupid world.

Home Impressions #1

Passed weekend looked boring to me so I decided to try something new. The project was to shoot a roll of film at home during saturday and then develop film myself. After having a hard time searching for the chemicals and learning how to fill the development tank the magic moment happened. For some moments I really understood all those photographer that deny digital photography and believe in the old ways. It's something very special!. In the following days I'll be presenting the results of my weekend work. This is Home Impressions #1.

Just a couple of metal boxes with an enigmatic lines play.
