Monochrome

In a previous post more than a month ago I mentioned that I was going to Paris and Copenhagen. I have been now and the top photo is taken in the courtyard of Palais Royal. If you want to see more Paris photos I posted some on my Flickr stream.

The middle photo is from Copenhagen, not that you can tell from a photo of lamp though, but it is kind of monochrome, this week’s cornerview theme. Anyhow, most of the photos I took there were of my little grandson and will not be published.

The last one is from a small pretty and touristy village, Mijas, close to my corner. They host an annual photo marathon which I participated in. One theme was Shadows and this was one of my attempts, a section of a lace curtain making shadows on the white wall.

More cornerviews starting at Francesca’s FuoriBorgo.

Happy May

I did not only photograph wild flowers last month, but also my blooming aloes, a caterpillar, our blooming olive trees and several attempts at getting close to the couple of bee-eaters that have been around most of the month. My 300mm lense was not long enough or rather, I was not patient enough hiding under one of the olive trees under the wire for them to land.

Photography

RPS_LRPS_RGB
Last year in June I joined the Royal Photographic Society in the UK, mainly because other photographers had recommended it and a way to move on with my photography.

Last month I was awarded the LRPS (Licentiateship of The RPS) distinction, which I am very happy about.

It was really difficult to pick out a suitable selection of 10 photos, and to learn to look more objectively at my own pics. One very good advise I received along the way was to “keep it simple” and think about what you want the viewer to see. I also learned to focus a bit more on the technical stuff than I have been too lazy to care about before. All in all, it has been a really good learning process.

You can see my panel here.

Have a great weekend.
