Hey! It takes me a bit sometimes to get back to a body of work ( especially if I start something else that’s more intriguing ) and I know that isn’t a good thing when it comes to work but here you go.
Part 2 of the South Coast Collection:
When your instincts/spirit speaks to you, trust and follow.
I was on my way down to Browne’s Beach that evening just for some of that fresh sea air and upon reaching the bottom of Beckles Road lo and behold the sun was huge and about to sit on the horizon. Obviously, as I left home unequipped, this was the shot I missed. Upon receiving that word of advice from my spirit, I took a U-turn on the main road and bolted back home for my camera.
By the time came when I returned the sun was already sitting on the horizon and it wasn’t as amazing as I thought it would’ve been on its own.
Luckily for me that day was a Sunday and the guys on the beach had their usual game of “keep ups” (If you don’t know this is just one or a group of individuals juggling the ball w/ the notion of keeping it off the ground and at the same time it displays the ball handling (control) skill of the players).
It was almost as though the sun aligned itself with these guys for me…
Waking up early in the a.m always reveals the day ahead to be one full of discoveries rather than what if’s and missed opportunities.
It’s not too often that you see a hummingbird, let alone a young one that isn’t fully mature. You always make use of what you have, as sometimes you choose to just travel with one lens.
Luckily, it also happens to be a rather reliable lens for capturing almost anything except a stunning landscape at a moment’s notice – the 50mm f/ 1.8.
Then as you meditate (I’ll just assume you know what I mean here) during your day on the things that matter greatly, you start to get the signs regardless of indirect or its opposite.
As always though, appreciate what is given to you and also what you don’t have.
Have you seen any interesting sightings recently when you look into the cosmos? I’ll give you a peep of what I saw; due to only having one lens though I wasn’t able to get the entire scene, but I believe with the coming of this super blood moon coming tomorrow that there will be a lot of seen and unseen happenings out there.
Hey there! This may be unofficially my first collection of photos following a specific theme or based in a central area. It is focused on the landscape, people and the daily activities that take place on these South Coast Beaches of Barbados: Browne’s (Carlisle Bay), Pebble’s, Hilton, & Drill Hall.
I chose to show this set of photos first though I have others before these from 2014 and this year (2015), but it’s this unintentional project that allowed me to redefine my style & better the film and high contrast/range film looks that always appealed to me. Slightly gritty and full of detail; shot with a Canon T1i (500D) and Canon 60D. These photos really opened me as well to the level of detail I can literally drag out of my raw files when recreating an analogue look for the shots I create.
Here is the first set to be released! More to come soon!
Cast a shadow
A few more metres and then repeat!
Yup, today is a beautiful day to hit the seas!
Y’all could go ahead, I’ll just sit here and keep my phone on speed dial if anything!
