VLOG | A Week in Lisbon + LIFE UPDATE

Leave a comment
Travels / Videos

Hello everyone! Long time no see. I went home for Easter break, as I probably mentioned before, and then I spent about a week in Rome with very limited internet access. While I was there I managed to upload a video (wahey!). You get to see my fabulous family, my dogs and my best friend in this one. I always toyed with the idea of vlogging one of my “triangle trips” – London/Lisbon/Rome/London – and […]

Digital Diares – Paris Moments & Details

Photography / Travels

Travelling isn’t just about getting on airplanes, buying souvenirs and taking pictures (ironically). Travelling is about breathing new air, experiencing great moments, and bringing back with you not keychains but memories. These pictures are artefacts of history, bookmarks of a thrilling page in your life, not postcards to show others the local monuments and landscapes. They’re images to remind you of things you smelled, smiles you received, laughter that escaped you, delicious things you ate, moments […]

Digital Diaries | Paris Cityscapes & Architecture

For my second post in the Digital Diaries series, I have quite a few pictures of Paris, so I decided to split them into Cityscapes and close-up shots. I have posted a lot of 35mm film photographs of my September vacation in Paris with Gabriele on my Travels category which are far, far prettier but, as I said in yesterday’s post, the Digital Diaries posts will be mainly about quick, of-the-moment snapshots rather than beautiful images. […]

Digital Diaries | Brighton in August

I thought I’d start a new series for all the instant, not-very-well-thought-out snapshots that I take with my tiny little (and not very powerful) pocket camera. I have a little Lumix that I carry with me literally everywhere – even when I’m out shopping – because I am a firm believer in capturing moments. I know nowadays you can do everything with a smartphone, but it’s so much easier for me to organise everything into […]

Sacrosanct

This is it, the last one. Thank you for accompanying me on my 35mm analog photography trip through the humid and heavily vegetated streets of Manila and the shores of liquid mercury of the Philippines in general. This is a final compilation of photographs taken inside a very beautiful church, the name of which escapes me. Most of them I’m not posting since it was dark and they came out blurry, but I particularly like the […]

Paris #1 – Curiosities, Textures, Details

Photography / Travels

Still waiting for the positive scans and the final film from Paris but decided to keep this regular posting thing up and, again, divide things into themes. Since I really want to make a post dedicated to the more landscape/architectural-type pictures I took whilst in Paris, I thought it would be a decent idea to post some miscellaneous pictures that stood out to me for different reasons – whether that be particular textures, lighting effects, […]

The Breathing City

Some more 35mm shots from Manila. Have another post coming soon of the church we visited and will get the last two rolls of film from Paris soon so I can finally start posting the pictures of that trip that aren’t portraits of Gabriele. Even though I’d kill to have more portraits of him. One thing that struck me about Manila once you left the “rich district” is how much green there is. It’s a complete contrast […]

Organised Chaos

The first of a series of posts I will be making of my trip to Manila last year. I’m trying to be a little more coherent and make smaller, shorter galleries divided into themes for each trip instead of one big post with 70 photographs every time I travel. Let me know if you prefer it that way – I definitely do, it’s a way of staying productive and posting consistently even when I go […]
