Uhm… wait.. what did you say? A party? To support Algy and his assistant?? Be sure to join in!!

A heartfelt thanks!

I would like to thank Eva (hinterdensiebenbergen), Liz (lizgrandmaison), Paul (babalou71), Jeanne (Jeannemcright), Algy and his ever attentive assistant, Jenny (adventuresofalgy), Esra (my-memory-palace), Fernando (qbnscholar), Shana (diversityandecho), Taylor (taylormmeredith) and Alex (alexelices) for their nice, interesting and incredibly constructive comments on my photo of today Estructuras’. And neither I must nor want to forget all those Tumblr fellows that made me know its appreciation for this picture by likes and reblogs. To all of you / them, the greatest appreciation, love and respect. You have made ​​my day and it got me to feel even more happy and proud to be part of this community!

Oh, I forgot! Sometimes I carry too far my mania for not  locate spatially or temporally the subjects of my photos, even when it is worth to know where they are taken! In this case (and assuming that this is obviously a train station!), I will say that this is the Estació de França (Train Station of France), in Barcelona, existing since 1854, as the main terminus for trains arriving from France (as its name still suggests) but remodeled in its present form since 1929.

Hausaufgaben!!!

Ich bin von kafkaswhiterabbit x getaggt worden :-)


Hier kommt also die Liste meiner sechs in der letzten Zeit meist-gehörten Alben:

a-ha - “Stay on these roads”

a-ha - “Analogue”

The Wishing Well - “Life on the border”

Jamie Cullum - “Twentysomething” (Special Edition)

Covenant - “Synergy - live in Europe” <– damals war ich live im Konzert dabei, als für die Platte mitgeschnitten wurde wurde!!

amorphis - “Elegy”

Danke, das war eine vergleichbar einfache Aufgabenstellung  *kicher* denn seit ich mit Opas alter Anlage höre, in die nur eine einzige CD passt, wuchert daneben stets ein interessanter Stapel an CDs, die ich Chaot aus dem Regal angeschleppt und hinterher liegen lasse habe. (mit Fünffach-CD-Wechsler war das Leben irgendwie doch einfacher…)


- und damit reiche ich diese Aufgabe in gespannter Erwartung weiter an:

meerdenkerin , seifenblasentraeume , janeair83 , hinterdensiebenbergen , dingedieichfand und herzensschoene (falls du trotz Reha - oder hinterher - lust hast)

Dear Eva – thanks so much for all the flying hearts – 25 – you sent to me for my recent photos – your support is much appreciated! Take care and have a creative week :-)

Peace & happiness, Enzo

Working in a completely different field, I’ve been taking photos as a hobby ever since I could hold a camera in my hands (i.e. in analog days). Life made me turn my back to that passion for a couple of years, but I feel it’s time to refocus now.

Still far from being experienced, I try to improve my work step by step… 

Photography for me means treasure hunting in everyday life and a continuous search for what could catch my eye or become something special to me… if only for a moment…

As I’m living in the countryside, you’ll mainly find landscapes, skyscapes and nature/macro shots in general in my archive - most of them taken with my Canon EOS 650D, but from time to time I enjoy playing around and experimenting with my Sony XPeria as well. 

I hope you enjoy my gallery, thank you for viewing!

Epic

Dear Jürgen, Carole, Eva, Fern, Nur, Mog, Esra, Shana, Taylor …; thanks for your support and your kind comments! This warm feedback has been great, since my first impression about this picture is that this was probably 'tough’ and a bit away from the kind of work that makes me feel confident …! This corner of a bricked wall interested me from the first moment I saw it, though I suspect what led me to take this photograph was that perpendicular light falling on it, which drew magnificently the brick textures. I gess if I had been there at a different time -with another different light-, I really had not taken that picture!.

Thank you!

hinterdensiebenbergen said:Good luck!

Thank you! I will certainly need luck. I didn’t really choose a wise month to return to tumblr, did I?! 

rhiarti said: Happy word-wrangling!

I must remember that I chose word-wrangling because it does make me happy - keep reminding me of this when I’m tearing my (proverbial and metaphorical) hair out as May progresses…

muchas gracias, la verdad es que son dos cosas con las que me gusta jugar, en ésta solamente me faltó la estela de un avión para haber rematado la escena

Maravilhoso!’

Although it is a little late (really guys, these days work is killing me), I want to sincerely thank  -Rita, Eva, Drew, Jenny and Nina- your nice comments about this picture! Nothing like a walk in the countryside to reconnect with those essential things that focused the life of past generations. These days can be seen in the fields near my hometown how the grape is slowly reaching the point of maturity that will lead to the harvest in six to eight weeks from now, -the second half of August-, for certain grape varieties. This is almost a month earlier than usual only twenty five years ago! Although I am not a skeptic when it comes to climate change, I usually take rather coldly the catastrophic visions concerning huge sea level rises and global warming, but I realize that, at least in the latitudes where I live there has been a visible alteration of the maturation rates of many plant species. Sometimes is not necessary to consult abstract climate change studies. Instead, just look around ….

Thank you Eva; I’m afraid I can’t hide that I love that kind of ‘traditional’ architectures and its colors!

'Beautiful composition, wonderful blues. Love those blue shutters’.

I’m so glad you liked it, Esra; thank you :).Many times I shoot mainly atracted by the colors I see, almost regardless of what I’m photographing. This was one of those times, in which I tried to capture that dominant blue!

'Crisp and clean. love the cool colors and the clear-cut composition! (well, this comment turned out a little alliteration-y now, huh? ;)’

Ha, ha :)…! Thank you Pia! But regarding the composition, some times I think that in shots like this one, may seem a bit… clynical; I mean, too much minded…!

That’s a great shot, the clarity is top drawer’.

Thank you for your nice comments, guys! This photo was taken close to home, early in the morning on a day that I knew was going to be particularly tough and stressful. On days like this, I like to take a little walk, once taken the first coffee, to meditate and accumulate energies (of course, I grab my camera!). Surely it is purely psychosomatic, but when i do, I feel more prepared for whatever comes during the day! In those early summer mornings, the air is usually delightfully fresh, light is soft and golden, and the visibility perfect !

'Amazing light patterns!

Eva, Ariel, thanks for your nice comments! This is one of those occasions in which one assumes that still has much to learn! Yes, as you wrote, what struck me here were that remarkably beautiful shadows and light reflections created in the sandy bottom by the flowing water surface. However, the resulting image, although it is interesting, hasn’t captured but a small part of that beauty!

‘Perfect play of light and shadows, love the lines, too!’

Thank you, Eva, but this picture came out well by chance! In such situations, I usually do a couple or three attempts at different apertures, to make sure I exposed in accordance to what I want to get in that image, but in this case I just had a shot I had to do without time to adjust the settings, so I was sure that it was a flawed image . But it was not so bad, and I’m glad you liked it!

'Qué luz!!! :D’

Era magnífica, Alejandro! La duda me vino a la hora de tomar la decisión de  procesar en B&N o en color, ya que, en este último caso, la luz tenía unas tonalidades azuladas estupendas que contrastaban con los colores cálidos de la piedra y la puerta,con su patina de óxido. Pero al final me decidí por prescindir del color, para intentar un mayor dramatismo!

'I just love the gradations of tones in this, representing the steadily decreasing intensity of light inside this gateway, and the lovely contrast with the grille. Beautiful use of greyscale :)’

These graduations were absolutely captivating, if you saw them there, and much richer than can be seen in the picture. When I see the results of any photograph that I may have taken in these light conditions, I always realize the large number of nuances lost in the capture, and the fact that no camera sensor (or none chemical film - do not fire me, guys :)) -) never will be able to represent the enormous amount of nuances that the human eye is capable. But I’m glad and happy that you and Algy liked it!

Many thanks, Esra! I loved to see the light go that way in the door, and that was the only reason I took a photo that otherwise would not have done. The door was not in itself too interesting!
