I was lucky enough to spend some time on holiday in Europe recently. It was a whirlwind trip, stopping in each city for only a few days at a time. I saw a lot, learned a lot, and met some amazing people. I feel incredibly privileged to be able to make such a trip. The technology and opportunities we now have available to us make this so easy, we’re rapidly becoming part of a truly global society.
Ok, enough philosophising, why the post? I’ve never really been a photographer, but I’ve had some exposure (see what I did there?), it runs in the family. I’ve always liked the idea of giving it a go, one day. This trip was the perfect
excuse to get a camera and try to work out how to use it.
Turns out I really enjoy taking photos. I find going for a walk to find interesting things to photograph calming, it pulls me into a different head-space. More focused, and present. You actively see the world around you—and the possibilities, what could be—as opposed to just floating around in it, reacting.
I’ve included some of my favourites here, I hope you enjoy them.
More photos from the trip are on Flickr.
