An inspiring 2014 :: Um 2014 inspirador

It’s been a quiet beginning for 2014. I am taking the time to work on my ideas for the Little Creatures and it feels good to slow down. I look around and I have this image of seeds germinating slowly underneath the ground before sprouting in the spring: it feels like the Little Creatures are…

St. Monans

The Fife Coastal Path is one of the best walking routes I have ever met. It goes from the Forth Estuary – close to Edinburgh – to the Tay, next to Dundee for 117 miles. Every now and then we walk a few miles, and every time we find ourselves among breathtaking landscapes and charming…

A floral promenade :: Um passeio floral

The Lade Braes Walk in St. Andrews is a quiet and sometimes magical path that crosses the town. Instead of the busy roads, you find yourself a midst scenic views, melodic birds and scented flowers. In July the Lade Braes Walk has gained a new array of colours to which I could not resist. I…

Common gulls and herring gulls are an obvious part of it but you can easily find eiders, arctic terns, shags, fulmars or oystercatchers – the list goes on. Watching them makes me want to capture…

Portobello Street Market

While I was going around my photos of London I noticed that I had a lot of pictures from the local markets and it seemed to me a great idea to share them with you. Markets make me feel like I am in a huge toy shop. I can roam around for hours among the…
