Got myself out of the house and got some shots around my home town. I was a little bit worried about going b&w with all of the shots, but the serie of photos gets a bit better with the same processing.
I have been to Gran Canaria (Spain) with my family. The weather was both splendid and not so good. Armed with my camera and Sigma 1.4/50mm together with VSCO film, it was big joy. I found back to my photographic interest. All by a sudden I was walking around, shooting as back in the good old days.
Have you ever tried to be a tourist in your own town? I tried it yesterday and it made me think different and something I must do again – very inspiring!
The problem I had was that instead of finding what is universally beautiful, I had to find what is characteristic for this place and time. So, I started to think about my hometown (Strömstad by the way) and it was spring which means almost no boats (no tourists as well), cloudy day and there is about 5000 people living there. Ah, yes – it is by the sea.
I hope when you look at the photos you get the same feeling of the town (very little people, yes) that I had that day.
