´I tornaré a Girona
Quan bufi tramontana
Per perdre’m en silenci
Pels vells carrers que enyoro. 

I tornaré a Girona
Sense esperar que em cridin
Amb tremolor a les cames
I els ulls oberts com llunes. 

Serà un dia de somni
Quan tornaré a Girona´

The Brutal Barbican and Hard Grain Concrete


Fed up with sharp and perfect pictures. When I visited the Barbican this weekend to see Basquiat paintings you can't help but look into the brutal architecture surrounding the place. Hate or love, both. Brutal is good when its simple. Here is very crowded and lacks minimalism.

But I zoomed into the column and water and got rid of the sharpness and the grain filter I never use was I think good in this instance and it gives the shot how rough cement is.

Birmingham Photography Workshop

Last Saturday I went to my first Workshop in Birmingham, I have been kind of desperate to go to one for ages, but I am so shy that it took me a long time to find the courage to go to one.

However this one just felt so right, because it was done by Tim Cornbill,  a Photographer I got to know through Instagram and I really admire his work. He has been recently awarded with the prestigious Sony Award and specialises in Birmingham, Concrete and Sky and everything in between.

So I had the courage to book one workshop and it was absolutely brilliant, chatted straight away with the 6 other people and it was not as scary as I thought it would be and at the end of the day most of us felt the same, shy to go to a place you don't know anyone but passion for Photography it's always the best way to forget you are even shy ;)

Tim was incredible, he first spend one hour giving basic notions about composition and showed us a very inspiring video, after that we went around Birmingham  not like sheeps or Japanse tourists but like friends that were spending sometime toguether.

When the walk around was over we went to the workshop room and we exchanged social media accounts and I came home with so many shots, here are a few I like and I hope you like them too.

Thank you for reading and if you ever want to go to a workshop and shyness stop you, don't think about it, just GO!

Always The Sun

“He stepped down, avoiding any long look at her as one avoids long looks at the sun, but seeing her as one sees the sun, without looking.”

Fog For Thought

 

'A thin grey fog hung over the city, and the streets were very cold; for summer was in England.'  

RUDYARD KIPLING - The Light That Failed.

 

English Summer

“Under the thinning fog the surf curled and creamed, almost without sound, like a thought trying to form inself on the edge of consciousness.”  

RAYMOND CHANDLER -The Big Sleep

Edge Of Consciousness

“To feel free, create a fog around yourself! And how can you do this? Be silent! When you are silent, people will not notice you much! You will be invisible, you will be inside the fog!”  

Mehmet Murat Ildan

Silence

"Heavy clouds moved from the north and were invading the top of the mountain, covering it with a light brume. It seemed to be fog, and perhaps fog was also rising from the ground, but at that altitude it was difficult to distinguish the mists that rose from below and those that come down from above."

UMBERTO ECO - The Name Of The Rose

 

“It wasn't the fog I minded, Cathleen. I really love fog.  It hides you from the world and the world from you. You feel that everything has changed, and nothing is what it seemed to be. No one can find or touch you any more.”  

Eugene O'Neill - Long Day Journey 's Into Night
