Big Cities and Little 'uns
Spanish Streets at NightThe old part of Ibiza is has a medieval layout where the inner city is ringed by a city curtain wall. Once inside, all the streets are narrow and twisty and lined with different kinds of stone. This looks back at the main entrance to the area.I haven’t spent as much time in some of these ancient old cities as I would like. There is a lot of satisfaction in setting up for shots in these areas. It’s nice to take my time and compose this and that… I find great enjoyment in this!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the entire post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
A Day of PhotographyAnd speaking of the subject matter at large – I decided to spend one day out of my birthday weekend out on a little photo adventure. I jumped in the car and drive towards Pyramid Lake just past Glenorchy.I was probably out for 10 hours, and I came back with 3 photos I really liked. That seems like a lot of time for just 3 photos… and, on the other side, I’m glad I came back with 3 photos! :)All in all, I took about 70 photos (many were brackets of 9 because I was out in the snowy conditions at one point. There is one more set still unprocessed… I have my fingers crossed that it will come out okay!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the entire post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
Road to the Inn I have strange feelings sometimes when approaching new hotels. I stay in a lot of them, but there are certain times of the day and night when you are going some place quite foreign and you’re just not sure what it will be like.A good example is this place here in Iceland, where everything can be doubly strange. I’ve had many strange experiences from sleeping in school classrooms (they are converted to hotels in the summer) to having to wake up someone at 2 AM to let me into a room.Even though Iceland is so mountainous, sometimes there are wide open plains where you can see the destination from miles and miles away as you get closer. And all the strange thoughts (especially very late at night) go racing through your head. It’s all kind of Twilight Zone-ish.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
