Las Palmas in Gran Canaria
I was able to capture the seagull flying over the birds on the cliffs in Las Palmas with my iPhone. That’s pretty amazing since I named one of my old phones “This is not a camera”.
Just a short hello from me, and this time it has to be short since I’ve got so much to do, and are not doing as much as I was hoping to do. Since, there are other stuff I have to tend to too. Quite cryptic, I know. It’s just that I’m finalising my plans.
So I’m on a short break in Gran Canaria just to get some sun on my skin, hopefully go swimming since I love swimming in cooler waters too. And it doesn’t seem to be too cold, I saw lots of people swimming while I was looking for a hotel today. Of course, it’s really nice not having to shovel show for a couple of days. Been doing lots of shovelling the week before I left, 240 cubic meters in less than three days. Just my luck it’s not snowing now.
Grafitti. And I’m not sure who it is. It could be Martin Luther King. On the other hand, it could be Dr Dre too. Or, somebody else. Anyhow, it’s beautiful.
These are just a few snaps, or as some people seem to call them ‘clicks’, I took with my iPhone while out on a nice morning walk the other day. Sometimes the phone surprise me with what it can do. Like capturing a bird in flight. So use your phone for photos too, at least you have a memory of how you saw the world. But, you have to edit the photos from the phone, and proper cameras too. It’s so rare that the phone, or camera, capture a good looking image where the white balance and everything is correct. Because that’s how a camera lens works, it translates the image captured to a perfect mix of grey. So, this “No filter” that people write on some of their photos, that’s just pure luck, and a bit of nonsense. But that’s just my opinion. As usual.
It’s beautiful to see open water again, great to feel the sea breeze and to get some sun on my skin. It’s been so long now I had almost forgotten what it feels like. I’ve got bare feet too.
