Don't Take Anymore Then You Can Carry

It’s quiet amazing who much stuff they can put on a bike in India. When walking around the streets of any Indian city you’ll see these overloaded cargo bikes all over the place.

Some are too heavy to ride, and have to be pull like this guys doing.

Fish Market

Fish Marked

As you properly remember I got My camera stolen when I was on a three days trip to Barcelona last year, that of course sucks big time, but the worst part is all the photos on the CF card went as well, and that day I had been all over the place, La Sagrada Familia, Park Guell and just walking up and around the Rambla shooting all kinds of things. All gone, I hope some one out there is enjoying them.

This shoot is from My first day in town, where I came by this nice looking market – right next to the Rambla – called “Mercado de San José”.
I think you would be able to find food from all of Spain here, it was amazing and very photogenic, I could have spent hours just walk around  the place shoot all kinds of different food and people, but Barcelona is a big city with a lot to offer beside a nice looking market, so off I went exploring other parts of it.

Post process is pure Lightroom, with contrast and brightness adjustments, and i made the white balance a bit more blue course the photo was to red/orange in My opinion.

The Bats and the Bridge

Congress Road AustinBuy Print

My friend Mike brought me to Congress Av. Bridge in Austin, around dusk to show me a massive bunch of bats fly out from under the bridge, which they do every evening. After waiting a couple of hours for the bats to occur, we gave up waiting – Mike later told me that the non occurring had something to do with their cubs – turned around and started shooting up the street instead which turned in to some pretty awesome photos.

Here’s what Mike got from that same spot.

To get this shoot I was standing so close to the street that I almost got My head ripped off by the rearview mirror on a bus driving by, so don’t you tell me that I’m not living on the edge…..

HDR, 5 RAW exposures, Photomatrix, all 6 photos added as layers in Photoshop, masked back the car trail lights, cleaned up a little ghosting, finalizing with Color Efex Pro and Lightroom for contrast and “last-minute” tweaks.

Waiting for the Next Customer

I was walking around the streets of Bangkok, with no particular purpose then to get a feel of the place and the people who lived there. I love to walk around foreign places and just take in the atmosphere of the place. I of course always bring My camera on these small adventures. cause you never know what or who you may run into.

All post process was done in Lightroom with a little help from the Nik Software plug-in Viveza 2, I’m getting more and more found of the Nik Software plug-ins, they are really awesome, check out their 15 day trail versions, at their website.

The Lighthouse at the end of the World

This actually what the Faroese calls this place, you can find it on the island Mykines. Once there you get an idea of why they call it that, cause it feels like standing at the end of the world, with the wind blowing through your hair, the sound of the waves crushing against the cliffs and all the different birds flying around making a lot of noise.

There are two ways to get to the island, by boat or by helicopter, there’s only one village on the island called Mykines village (population 19), you are free to walk around all over the island. The trail from the town to the lighthouse is about 1,6 Km and it takes almost 2 hours (with stops to shoot some photos a long the way) to get out there, and then of course 2 hours back.

Time Capsule Hotel

This is a photo of the main room – the living room – of the hotel I stayed in when I was in Chernobyl in 2010. I had to climb in to a closet to get back far enough to capture the entire room in one shoot with a 24mm.

Walking in to this room was like going back to the 1970ties, a bit weird and kind of cool at the same time.
