Beach Front Living, Greece
Yep I’ve been back there again on a photography trip to one of my favourite places to shoot in Rhodes Greece.
Unlike the previous two visits this time I wanted to concentrate more on doing some filming that I had pre-planned rather than shooting stills and I’ll be publishing that finished video very soon.
Having said all that I still managed to capture plenty of still images like this location close to the beach at Faliraki.
The scene I found in front of me reminded me of one of those amazing large-format Peter Lavery landscapes found in the Marlborough adverts from back in the mid 80’s (Google em kids) captured in the wild deserts of the U.S.A.
I came across this and several other small caravans dotted close to the beach area and although this was obviously made into someones home at some point I’m unsure it or the others were still actually being lived in. Either way instead of seeing them as some kind of eyesore so close to the beautiful beachfront they actually made me smile because of it.
Have you ever been to a place and had such a great trip you kind of don’t want to go back because you don’t feel you can top that perfect first visit?
That’s where I’m at when it comes to Venice.
I visited a week before Christmas to capture some travel lifestyle images so no doubt a little festive mood helped set the tone. On that note Venice is incredible at Christmas as the whole place is like a huge Santas grotto with lights and more importantly very few tourists.
The weather was also a great gift as it was very cold but clear providing beautiful low winter sunlight.
I came away with some incredible images from the trip which in Venice is hard not too and the feeling that returning could not get any better.
Having said all that’s it’s not to say I won’t as I would love to take my kids there and perhaps shoot some motion work this time.
iPhone Wanderings In Majorca
I came across this beautiful photography location during a day riding a Vespa around the Majorcan countryside.
I confess to often being slightly disappointed when I discover such great locations in the middle of the day as in most cases the light would almost definitely be more interesting earlier or later.
