Textures interest me and capturing the experience of textures themselves and how materials are used is an obsession of mine. When photo walking I am just as likely to pause and spend a few minutes trying to capture the texture of the bark of a lonely city trapped tree as I am to try to sneak candid photos of people enjoying themselves by just firing off the camera at random without bringing the viewfinder up to my face. Our recent trip to Barcelona resulted in enough of these photos that I thought it was worth highlighting them in a separate post. So here they are in all there glory.
Everything was captured using my Canon 7D and 16-35 f/4 IS L pairing and processed from RAW using Aperture.
One of the perks of working for a full distributed company is that when we get together for team meet-ups we don’t end up stuck in side a meeting room in an office block instead we get to share a few days together working and playing hard. Recently I was lucky to be invited to another teams meet-up which was to be in sunny Barcelona a city of Tapas, Gaudi, and Leche de Pantera. Here are a few of the photos I took during our visit.
The butterflies at the Victoria Butterfly Gardens were beautiful, as were the Parrots and other animals, although the Parrots were mostly camera shy.
On a recent vacation to Vancouver Island I was lucky enough to spend some time exploring Butchart gardens. It is a love place to explore and the sunken garden is particularly amazing. Here are a few photos from the visit.
