A Day of Freedom

I usually do my street photography on the weekends in downtown Boston. This past Saturday, Sadhguru, who created the Isha Foundation, held a talk at the Back Bay Event Center. Besides spreading his wisdom, he was promoting his new book on Inner Engineering. Carline and I attended the same talk last year. Since Carline is […]

In Spain…

Spain: home of paella, flamenco, sangria, horchata and lisps. A beautiful country rich in culture with modern conveniences, and architecture that will “wow” even the dullest of us. It’s quite different, historically, than Greece and Italy, for example. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it’s “less ancient” than the other two, at […]

In Italy…

Bari Because of the “Greek Fiasco” due to the air traffic controllers’ strike, we didn’t get to visit Malta, which meant more days in Italy. We visited Italy four years ago: Rome, Sorrento, Amalfi, Venice, Milan and Florence. This time around, we wanted to visit the other side of Italy: the heel area. Our plan […]

In Greece…

Athens Greece. The birth place of the European culture, slouvaki, feta cheese, and men who where male purses (technically, field bags). I fit right in wearing my ONA Berlin II camera bag. I also had the most feta in five days than in my entire life (one more day than planned, but I’ll get to […]

In Norway…

Carline and I started our vacation in Oslo, Norway. We were only here for one day, so we had to make the best of the time we had to visit the city. The first thing we noticed is how quiet the airport is. Before taking the shuttle to our hotel, we sat and had tea, […]

Looking for Inspiration

Convention Convention This year I finally decided to attend the PhotoPlus convention that’s held in New York City. I say finally because every year for the past few years, my friend, Matt Gore would ask me if I will attend, and I always decline for some reason or another. Since I now live in Massachusetts, I […]

Life With Leica: A Humble Message

I kinda stole the title from Thorsten von Overgaard‘s video, but I think it’s befitting here since, for some reason, having a Leica seems to be a big deal to many people, which oftentimes puts me in the spotlight, but I’m here to debunk that notion. Some photographers (at least, the ones who can afford […]

An American Holiday in Montréal

For the long Memorial Day weekend, Carline, Foxxy, Sam and I took a trip up to Montreal; just a five hour drive from Boston. Originally meant to be a “mini-vacay” for just the humans, it turned into an opportunity to catch up with family and friends, so my original idea of street photography turned into […]

iFauxn 6

Apple has been talking smack about photography by saying that you can take phenomenally fantastic photos from the iPhone 6’s camera. The photos on their propaganda campaign are quite impressive, but I believe the following about cameras in general: All cameras can take great pictures, provided that the conditions for the cameras are met. — […]

Seattle’s Best

I realize “Seattle’s Best” is a coffee brand, but that’s not what this title is referring to. I just needed a title for this post. This was supposed to be a post describing my experience shooting with two different cameras, but I decided to leave the shop talk for later and just write a photo blog […]
