Not My Style

As part of a project a friend and I dreamed up, I agreed to photograph a day of my life. Not my sort of thing at all - photographs of record bore me utterly. But, as a one off, it was quite interesting, and I though I'd post the results here. You'll note everything looks underexposed. Do you find that pictures shrunk to tiny sizes have that effect? I do...

No Lucy, you are too small to come on a proper hike.

We've reached the mountains after a long blast over the tracks.

Dog and master in perfect harmony.

Spring is coming, finally.

Baby pine cone.

Mature pine cone.

Delphi loves a hike.

Tracks are now dry enough to get the logging trucks in and out.

And the skies are blue again.

River levels are still abnormally high - trail riding can get a bit scary.

Ruined house in the valley. It must have been hard to scratch a living here.

Climbing back out of the valley.

And back to the car. About 20KM round.

Car dropped off, bike picked up, time for a late lunch.

Cheese and ham toastie, jug of wine.

Down to Marinha beach for a bit of shooting. Rocks with fill in flash.

A friend of mine has a bar in Loule, with live music on a Saturday.

Shady locals mix with tourists and expats.

Mine Host.

The view from behind the bar at closing time.

And there you go. Quite fun to do. You try it...


  1. really looks like Australia ... either that or I've been away from home too long.

  2. Never occurred to me before, but you could be right. Goodish weather, hard land, and not that many people on it. Unsurprising really...
