M.I.A. – Missing In Action
What I’ve been up to, or down below in the sea, lately. A recap of my last weeks in Bali and what I’ve learned about underwater photography. And, an explanation why I’ve not had the time to blog at all.
I visited The Blanco Museum here in Ubud, Bali and found it to be most inspiring. Like I usually do when looking at paintings since that’s where I learned the most about photography.
A short appreciation post to the most photogenic subject there is, water! And of course, big thanks to all surfers who help me make the photos more interesting.
It was a beautiful morning
What I did this morning. Yes, went out and took some surf photos. Amazing waves. Some thoughts about how I function while taking pictures.
Oh, I have a printshop too.
Dropping the news that I have a printshop. East Coast Memories is one of the collections on my Smugmug site.
Yes, I enter photo contests
Yes. I submit photos to be exhibited. That’s because I want to share the moments I’ve experienced with the hope that they can transmit the joy that happened during this surf lesson in Arugam Bay in Sri Lanka.
The one that got away
Some photography advise, some photo editing confessions and an apology. And surf photos from a lovely April morning here in Bali, Indonesia.
“Blue lines are the reason why the temple had to shatter”
Finally when I got here, I understood the line “Blue lines are the reason why the temple had to shatter” from the Massive Attack song. Also, a description of how my brain works when I’m in photography-mode, and that water is just a gigantic reflecting mirror sometimes.
Batu Bolong, Bali, Indonesia 2022
Photos I took of people on the beach, and by the temple, in Batu Bolong, Bali, March 2022. And my thoughts of what differentiates a photograph from a snap. And also, some life advice from Philthy Taylor from Motörhead.
Back where it all started
A summary of how I started photographing surfing now when I’m back where it all began in Bali, Indonesia. Illustrated with surf photos from the other day here in Batu Bolong.
