#shittycamerachallenge — A visit to the Praia da Barra, 19 January 2022

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.

Praia da Barra, 19 January 2022

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”

More playing with pano, from 12 November 2021

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.

Ferias 2021: até ja, praia (8 September 2021)

It was a glorious start to our last day on the beach. The sun rose into a clear blue sky and we were excited at the prospect of one final day in the sun before our return to normality.

No views of the sea today. Why not, you ask. Well, thought you already had too much of a good thing. So today we’re concentrating on the main character of our beach, the cliffs. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/09/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-3.html

Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 31 August 2021

On the whole it was a lovely day, with warm water and blue skies. Later though the clouds drew in leaving an overcast sunset that ended on a glorious note. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/09/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-31.html

Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 30 August 2021

Today was just … different. We headed for the beach just before noon on a lovely sunny day. There was no traffic at all on the walk to the beach, and ahead us was a clear blue sky. However, as we drew near the beach it became clear that there was a haze over theContinue reading “Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 30 August 2021”

Fun with waves, 26 August 2021

It was tough to have a little fun with the waves today as the sea was just so … flat. However,  in the wave cycle there were a good couple of ‘splashy’ waves that you could have fun with. There’s a dark side, though: these waves that are so nice are actually part of aContinue reading “Fun with waves, 26 August 2021”
