My photo blog

Dear readers,

I have planned to at least temporarily "close" this blog because I have found a better place to post my shots. To all my friends I have sent invitations to visit that place so that they can enjoy them even more in a place specifically built for photography. If any of you family or friends, haven't received the link, please send me a note and I'll send you the links.
If you want to comment on my shots, freely do it there. I'd love to see who comes to visit my site.

Best regards to ya'll!

The webmaster

St. Ives, Cornwall, UK - March 2, 2007

Here are some shots of a trip I took to a fishing town in the south-western point of the United Kingdom. The area is called Cornwall.
It's a totally different place compared to England itself. The people are different, even the food.
If you have the chance to visit this place, you should try something called the "Cornish Pasty". It's likelly you'll enjoy it. But be warned: It's steaming hot at first.

I think these shots portray the town of St. Ives and its area, giving an insight to its history, architecture and scenery.

Paris, France - October 7, 2006

The city of Paris has all to do about art. Once you visit the city you'll get to know why. Art is everywhere -buildings, gardens, statues, light poles, etc.
I "only" had a day to visit it -well, some hours- and if you don't get into museums, you'll be surprised on what you can see by foot in that short time. Again, I say, walking. You can take a bus to see the city but you'll likely see little and remember nothing.
Here is my tribute to this wonderful city. All taken in the day light on an Autumn day.

Morning -First one in line at the gate.

I just got off the plane dreading it would be a wet day in Paris...

The bus that would take me an hour south to Paris. It appeared to be a wonderful sunny day down there.
