Felix “El Gato”

I am currently displaying some portraits of local people in the bar Cerro Negro in Las Negras. This morning I passed Felix “El Gato”, who builds walls out of natural stone, working on site and thought I would add him to the collection.

La Peluqueria

La Peluqueria, the hairdresser. It is the first night of the annual Feria de Las Negras. Strolling around the village this evening, observing the festivities, I noted this scene and had to take a photo. It was at about 2300 so  the light was difficult But I do not like to use flash.

Boogie Boarding Yorkie

Just a humorous shot. I saw this little yorkie boogie boarding in the sea at Las Negras this afternoon. There was quite a lot of swell, a yellow flag was flying and he was away from the shore but he had good balance and a lot of confidence.

The beach in August

The beach in August

The beach in August

Even most of our beaches get crowded in August. This is the busiest part of Las Negras beach taken this afternoon.The light is usually hazy this month but today it was sharp and the colors bright. I took this photo with a telephoto lens from the far end of the beach. I wanted go zoom in on the colors and shorten the perspective. Various adjustments in photoshop using HDR toning and the camera raw filter to achieve the end result.

The beach at Las Negras

The beach at Las Negras

Taken this afternoon at about 1730. This time of day the sun shines down on the beach towards the sea accentuating the colors. It is not too crowded because it has been a quiet summer so far and it is Monday. The same style as yesterday’s photo of San Pedro but taken with a decent camera so the quality is better.

From the sea at San Pedro

San Pedro from the sea

San Pedro from the sea

On most of our hot and sunny days during July and August in Andalucia the light is too hazy and white to create good photos. Today has been hot and sunny and we walked to San Pedro to enjoy a relatively uncrowded beach. The light was here was quite good but I have taken so many photos of the beach, cove and valley that I needed to look for a different perspective. I swam out into the warm Mediterranean with my small Sony waterproof compact camera. I took a photo looking back at the beach and another out to sea. Here is the one looking back.
Looking out to sea

Looking out to sea

This photo is looking out to sea. I like the way the silhouette of the mast and the floating seagrass in the foreground aid the composition.
