Having celebrated our marriage in style, Loredana and I have recently jetted off on our honeymoon!
Of course, I’ll be packing my camera but on this occasion my main priority will be recording our time together tucked away in a romantic corner of the world. But as Dana knows only too well, they’ll undoubtably be the odd shot of stunning scenery, great architecture and fauna & flora sneaking their way onto the old digital camera roll during our time away.
I really can’t help myself! Travel has always been in my blood and being able to capture amazing images from around the globe is a privilege that I’ll always be grateful for.
If you look back at my blog in May where I talk of capturing the sights, sounds and smells of the Frome Independent you can imagine how I thrive on the cultural diversity, climates and individual characteristics that bombard you as you travel beyond our shores.
Whether it’s contemporary architectural design or the amazing aesthetics of historical Moorish places of worship, I revel in playing with light & shade, textural changes, distances and angles; all the things that bring a two dimensional image to life.
Though I’ve had my moments at high altitude, hanging precariously from a scaffold and getting in the way of fast moving vehicles, it’s not always the most dramatic shot that excites me. A simple record of the everyday, the hustle and bustle of a crowded market, people in contemplation, a beach at dawn; all make for great travel photography.
So, after much planning for our summer nuptials both Dana and myself are looking forward to some time immersed in beautiful surroundings far from home. I’ll be posting some images of our travels to the site on our return, so be sure to keep an eye out.
In the meantime, we both hope you have a great summer. It hasn’t got off to such a bad start really has it!
