Jiminy Cricket!

I found this little critter on my last trip to Spain. i always ake sure to take my Macro lens with me when I go, I love hunting around for their weird and wonderful insects and plants. I managed to tak a few of him whilst he was happy sat on his leaf and a number of shots where he’d jumped off and I hadn’t even noticed. that was a fairly productive day for my camera and I. I can’t remember the last day i woke up and thought, “right, all I plan on doing today is to take a load of pictures”.

i guess a trip to Spain is what the Dr is trying to perscribe, a place where I can rest and not worry about the little problems that day to day life brings whilst back at home. I think I take better pictures when stress free too. i tend to worry less about people stairing at me with my big camera and lens and focus more on my surroundings and whats going on.

I’m in a place at the moment where there’s no one I can go with though. I like going off for a few hours on my own but would probably find it boring going over there on my own. So for now, my next trip to sapin is on hold. Could have done with some sun too!

San Federico

Spain is a wonderful place. This was taken on a little beach down beside the Balcon De Europe in Nerja Costa Del Sol. The warmth of the sun has a calming effect on my mind and all but eradicates my anxiety problems. The sun also makes for excellent photography conditions. The more light there is, the easier it is to get the right settings to correctly expose the shot (I find anyway)

The boat above made the beach seem a  little less touristy and a little more rustic. I’d been searching the area for  natural photos of the area without anything touristy getting in the way. I find the authentic Spain much more appealing than that side of it. This was taken last time I visited Nerja. My nan has a villa there so I go as often as I can. Next time I think I’ll hire a car and adventure further in land to the less developed areas, I think I’ll find some interesting subjects there.

Spain is one of the first countries other than my home country that I have felt comfortable in visiting on my own. Part of this must be done to the fact that I’ve been many times before and know a little about the place and partly because I passed GCSE Spanish whilst at school. unfortunately I didn’t keep the language up after so I lost most of it. I can still form basic sentences and know a good amount of words to get by whilst there.

It occurred to me that I have bought most people who are close to me to Spain at some point during my life. I have plenty of happy memories from all these people whilst being with them in spain and look forward to having many more happy memories with people who I haven’t yet had to chance to go with.

As mentioned in one of my former blogs, Spain is one of the places I’d run away to to escape everything

Happy Viewing
