Pool of Light on a Country Lane

Last week I processed another photo from an evening outing with R in Għargħur. I thought I’d share this today, while more recent photos wait in my pile of photos still to be processed. This was an unplanned photo, which I find often enough is the best way to approach photography, or at least the most rewarding. As we walked along the Victoria Lines, looking … Continue reading Pool of Light on a Country Lane

Roberta

Today’s photo is, unusually, a portrait. Rather a simple one, from an outing Roberta and I did last week in Għargħur. It was one of the best kinds of outings, a spontaneous decision to pack a simple picnic and head up to Għargħur to eat it outside while watching the sun set. Followed by a short amble along the Victoria lines in the dark. A … Continue reading Roberta

I have a series of photos of this event, starting from just after sunset, until well into nautical twilight. My favourite photos were the ones … Continue reading Moonrise Over Breakwater Lighthouse

Sliema from Tigné Point

Earlier this month I headed down to Sliema, meeting a friend for an evening photography session. Moonrise was projected just after sunset, and its angle was not much different from a month ago, of course. The weather forecast was not too promising, with a significant risk of clouds on the horizon to obscure the view, and possible showers, but we decided to chance it anyway. … Continue reading Sliema from Tigné Point

Roberta

For someone who considers himself a photographer, it is troubling how few photos I have of the most important people in my life. One would be inclined to think that the more time one spends with a particular person, the greater the number of photos one would have of said person. Unfortunately, the relationship is far from linear. Indeed, it might even be an inverse … Continue reading Roberta
