We didn’t get to see the aurora at its peak on Friday bc of the clouds (and I was too sick to go far enough to escape them), but we got to briefly see the aurora on Saturday <3 ๐Ÿ“ธ

Spring is finally here ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ“ท

Flowers in bloom with an out of focus background of green trees and the edge of a birthday party in the park

๐Ÿ“ท Moody Friend.

The term “Content Creator” really needs to die before AI finishes killing the arts - people devaluing themselves and their work by reducing it to “content” to be mindlessly consumed is what lets arbitrarily generated mediocrity win ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I do love to make unexpected friends on winter walks โ„๏ธ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ท

Framed between two tree trunks is a snow topped birdhouse topped with snow. In the birdhouse is a squirrel munching on a nut.

I’ve been posting too many sunset photos (I’m not that sorry) - but I’m really tempted to make some wallpapers out of this.

Mainland Spain, Gibraltar, and Ceuta in a single shot on a clear day is pretty beautiful tbqh.

Marbella, December 2023.

A sunset over Spain, Gibraltar, and Ceuta. The sea is rough but painterly, with swashes of blues and whites. The sky is a gradient of deep orange on the horizon going through yellow to blue hour hues.

Marbella, December 2023 - Kodak Gold 200.

A large angel statue playing a trumpet framed and partially obscured by orange trees on the left and right of the frame.

more film from Andalusia - sunsets and mountains (also I think my first roll of Kodak Gold in 120).

The sun setting over the ocean. In the midground a rock formation goes across the frame, with people stood fishing in the middle. In the distance you see the further coastline, lit in golden light, with a mountain to the right.

I got film back from my fav lab today… and apparently I need to do some light seal replacements (truly the joy of shooting film)

I quite like this photo though - from a rest stop as we were leaving Marbella to drive to Seville, a lovely view over the town of Ojรฉn.

A photograph overlooking a town of white buildings and terracotta roofs. The town is backed by a tree covered mountain side. Above the mountain is a blue sky with hints of wispy cloud. To the left of the frame are some like leaks that distort color.

monkeying around. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ“ธ.

Gibraltar, Dec 2023.

A sillouette of a monkey on a rock face, in the background there is a column of light from the sea framing the outside of the monkey.

I can’t stop thinking about the amount of intricate detail that fills the Nasrid palaces. Especially in comparison to the later parts that were built by the Spanish that are plain plaster and terracotta.

An intricate archway from inside the nasrid palace. The archway is pure darkness, but the surround is filled with intricate hand carved patterns in the stone. There are remnants of a deep blue paint that previously filled the engravings.

The sheer detail and craftsmanship that went into this place isโ€ฆ incredible. Iโ€™mโ€ฆ lost for words.

An intricate wall decoration with a mix of patterns and Arabic text. You can see remnants of ancient paint that has been faded or removed with time.

Today weโ€™re visiting Alhambra and I am very excited

Getting lost in sunsets by the sea ๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿ“ท

A sunset over Spain and Gibraltar

Today weโ€™re exploring Alcรกzar. Exploring places with such a varied history is alway fascinating, but heartbreaking when you consider what was lost and destroyed.

An ornate floor of bright patterns inside geometric shapes.

๐Ÿ“ท. I’m enjoying a lot of the monkey photos from today - this one was very wistful for a while (before harassing some other tourists who presumably were foolish enough to pack food).

A monkey looking wistfully into the distance at profile to the camera. In the background you can see a distant Spanish City.

Day 2: Exploring Gibraltar - we met many good monkeys. ๐Ÿ“ท.

A Barbary Macaque on a wall looking slightly off camera, the background is mostly filled with trees.

Sierra Blanca, Marbella.

This trip is off to a lovely start, with a lot of light and peace. ๐Ÿ“ธ.

A black and white photo of a mountain behind a line of palm trees. The mountain has a deep texture in the rock due to harsh direct light.

Spending the rest of the year taking a break from computers ๐Ÿ’ป and doing a photography road trip around Andalusia โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ“ท๐ŸŒด

Iโ€™d love recommendations for Gibraltar/Granada/Seville/Cรณrdoba if anyone has them!

The sun setting over the sea, a palm tree in the foreground and a cloud rolling in.

Berlin does have a haunting charm. ๐Ÿ“ธ.

I think switching a lot of my photography to black and white / spending more time roaming around the east is making me find bits of this city that I like, even in the Winter.

A black and white scene of the entrance to a building. In the foreground are curved steps, leading to a fence and an abandoned childrens scooter. In front of the entrance is a white gravelly texture, and to the side a lattice of windows with a view of empty halls.

๐Ÿ“ธ. Photography in the winter is hard, but there’s a definite allure to winter skies โ˜๏ธ.

I made it outside with my 500C/M today - despite recovering from a flu+covid double vax ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’‰.

I forgot how good shooting film is for my brain. Time for some moody b/w to go alongside Berlin’s overcast season ๐Ÿ˜…

I think I would like to switch back to a split #keyboard for the majority of my work typing but I can’t decide if I should just buy a moonlander (easy, decent software guaranteed) or if i should investigate the current state of funky hipster split diy designs ๐Ÿ˜…

We re-watched Legally Blonde last night and honestly I’m still amazed by how well that movie aged.

Even with some of the plot points that many others failed to do well, not a single scene needs “ah but it was of its time!!!” excuses for bigotry - and 22 years later still manages to be… comforting?

I love visiting zoos when traveling - today is London Zoo, where the Lemurs were being incredibly friendly ๐Ÿ˜…

A close up shot of a lemur on a wall. The lemur is looking off to the right of the frame at a 30ish degree angle so you can just see both eyes.
