Recently, I met up with one reader of my website, for a movie by an actress we both adore. And he brought along with him a photo album of his recent overseas trip, shot using the camera that I recommended. He had some questions in mind but I am far from being a pro. Nevertheless, I was happy to share my experience with him.
I enjoy seeing a photo album of family and friends. That is what I love to do; and that is what I love to see. Specifically, I enjoy seeing the connection between the subjects and the photographer. Personally, I find it hard to photograph subjects that I cannot relate. Back to my new friend, we had such a good time. He is a bright young man with great drive. Certainly someone with a promising future.
Time flies. Since when it doesn’t? Some friends of mine start to ask, “How many more days to go?”. Each Sunday, I publish a mini article on one day of my recent holiday trip to Spain. Each article takes me any time between 8 hours to 16 hours to complete. It must be quite an effort to follow this mini series of mine, as much as the effort I pour into each article. The answer is: three more days to go. And I am looking forward to the 26th of September, whereby I will take a break from the 12 weekends of non-stop publication of this travel blog.
Day 9, we toured Madrid. You know how some days you pick up your camera and feel that every shot you make is just great. Some days, you keep trying for different settings and still not quite getting it. Day 9 turns out to be quite a challenging day for me. Maybe the sun was too strong. Maybe I was messing around with the flash setting trying to do something different. I thank Cynthia for being so patience, standing under the sun for those multiple shots of the same pose, same scene. Till her nose bled.
As always, below are the options you may wish to read more about our trip.
- A photo collection for day 9 of our trip to Spain (58 photos with captions)
- A journal written in details on what we did and more (approx 1,400 words)
