2022: A Photographic Retrospective

As I have been doing for several years, I wanted to choose twelve photos that I shared on this blog over the last year, and highlight them again in this retrospective. Unlike previous years, unfortunately, this year I started the selection process very late, and only barely managed to get this done before the end of the year. As usual, I have restricted myself to … Continue reading 2022: A Photographic Retrospective

A rather unexpected find in the walk near Għasri in Gozo was the scene I’m sharing today. The cross, known as Tad-Dejma, refers to a mercenary force in the late middle ages, dedicated to protecting the islands in the event of an Ottoman raid.

Except, sadly, for Christmas Eve and Christmas … Continue reading Climbing in Wied il-Għasel

Cersei

This week I’m sharing a couple photos of Cersei, my friend’s dog, from separate outings on the same day. The photo above, with the trusty 50mm f/1.4, was during a picnic at the cliffs in Dingli. I just couldn’t keep up with her, she was … Continue reading Cersei
