It’s taken a while to get the film developed, but it was an enjoyable #shittycamerachallenge day at the beach with the Diana F+. One thing is certain; with all these light leaks next time I go out I need to start taping up the body of the camera before heading out.
Barra is a mixture, on the one hand there is a vibrant town, quiet in January but packed during the hot summer months. On the other side is the sea, a haven for surfers and fishermen and frequently visited by cargo ships and tankers entering the port. And in the middle is the Praia daContinue reading “Praia da Barra, 19 January 2022”
An enjoyable day at the beach with the Diana F +. Also took the #shittydigital #PSP along for some beach and streetphotography.
Once storm Barra had cleared, to be honest we just had a little wind and rain, the blue skies returned … for a while.
I took some of the raw photos from yesterday’s panoramas and put them through a stitching program called Image Composite Editor (ICE). They look much better, but of course you’ll need to turn you phone on its side to see them in their full glory.
As versatile as the Pocket 2 is, I seem to be captivated with taking panoramas with it at the moment. Today we headed to the coastal town of Barra, near Aveiro.
Out in Barra this morning, a seaside town near Aveiro that is dominated by its lighthouse. Packed with tourists during normal summer months, in November the town is relatively quiet. This morning Barra was shrouded by a seaside fog, which soon burned away as the sun rose.
Below is the session from Saturday. It was a lovely day and it was great to get to Barra; the first time this year. Hope that you like the images and please feel free to comment and share.
Images from the freestyle session on Sunday morning, a flavour of the surfers, bodyboarders and longboarders from the day. There are some lovely examples of walking the longboard, too. Please feel free to comment and share the gallery, as usual. At Praia da Barra, Aveiro, Portugal [FAG id=1909]
The gallery from Sunday is up, I hope everyone likes it. The waves were breaking alongside the pier, so I managed to get a load of photographs from the side, which is certainly a novel way of looking at surfers. [FAG id=1912]
Fabulous, simply FABULOUS morning at Barra today. Clear blue skies, sun low in the sky. Took hundreds of photos it was a mad session editing and posting the piccies. The gallery for the most session at the Praia da Barra is edited and uploaded and hopefully it’s done everyone who was there justice. There wereContinue reading “2016-04-28 Freestyle surfers (Praia da Barra)”
Great session at the Praia da Barra this morning. There was something for everyone, bodyboard, surfers, longboard, SUP and even a kayak surfer. I’m about two-thirds of the way through editing the images and I hope to have them finished and posted tomorrow. Also great to meet Pedro, from Lisbon. Completed editing the images fromContinue reading “2016-03-13 Freestyle surfers (Praia da Barra)”
After a little time spent ‘chasing the waves’ this morning, we ended up at Praia da Barra. The tide was out when we arrived, but the waves soon picked up. If I didn’t get everyone, my apologies, but I hope that you’ll like these from the day. All being well. I’ll be at Barra againContinue reading “2016-03-12 Freestyle surfers (Praia da Barra)”
Here are the photographs from this morning’s session at Praia da Barra. There were some great waves! [FAG id=1932]
Everyone seemed to have a great morning’s surfing today. After a slow start the waves improved greatly and at one point I counted over 20 surfers in the water. It was busy and a fabulous day, weather-wise. If I missed you, I’m sorry but please feel free to share and comment. All the best …Continue reading “2016-02-20 Freestyle surfers (Praia da Barra)”
After an unexpected invitation to Barra, we had a lovely session this morning … Waves were a little ‘choppy’ at times but everyone had a great time. [FAG id=1936]
In case you missed these, here is the ‘sunset session’. I also got some lovely sunset pictures from the Praia da Barra which I don’t think I have ever posted. Early in December I managed to go to Barra for the afternoon. We had a lovely time, though the sun moved quickly behind the surfersContinue reading “2015-12-10 Freestyle surfers”
