Quick Update

Well, it's been a long time since I posted something and I don't want you to think that this blog is dead. Not even close.

From the beginning of this year I've been devoted to film photography. Basically I haven't used a digital camera for my personal photography since December of 2014.

I've added one more step into my film photography. Until now I developed my own B&W film at home. Now I've started digitizing myself as well, so I've got complete control over my photos.

Below is one of my first attempts on digitizing film with a dslr and some extension tubes, although this concrete photograph has been made only with a 50mm lens.

Be sure to come back as in these last two months I've been traveling and exploring some places and there are plenty of photos and projects to come to the blog and the web.

It's a blessing having met a person who shares my passion for getting lost and going to adventures. I want to take the most out of this time when I'm able to leave and make this little escapes on the weekends.

This time the chosen place was Siurana, a little town on the top of a mountain cliff located in the Priorat, a region of Catalonia.

This little town has barely 20 people living there and it's interesting not only for the majestic views of the valley and the lake but for its history, as it was one of the last redoubt places of the muslim domination in Catalonia.

I've got to admit that I felt really isolated and teleported to another time and place rather than being in the 21st century in Catalonia. The sensation of isolation and the immensity of the landscapes were a nice mixture of feelings and sensations.
