Golden Lifestyle


Furniture found in the Emirates Palace, an extravagant 5-star palace in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Everything inside is golden, light is dim.. You actually think you are in a pharaonic burial chamber instead of a hotel. It was supposed to be a "Conferance Palace" but it ended up being unused and became a hotel.
I personally find it a huge waste of money.

The Tunnel's End


An old shot I took in a pedestrian underpass in Abu Dhabi (UAE). It was about 2am, that's why it's empty. Had the leisure to set up my tripod and take a few shots without any disturbance!

Don't gamble with Time


A conceptual shot I did a while back. I like to use the concept of Time in my shots.
I think the title explains it all. Don't even try, Time always wins!

[Edit]: On a side note, I will be going on a short one-week holiday tomorrow so I won't be able to update the blog. I will however return with many more shots to share! Have a great week everyone!

Such a beautiful lively and artistic city! This is Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. It was taken from the top of a church on a hill, Hallgrímskirkja. I fell in love with that city, friendly people, many art galleries. I sure hope they will rise again from the economic downturn!
Takk fyrir Island!

"LOST again" + some updates


Yep, that's Ducktor Jeckyll again! This time he has lost his bathtub and finds himself in the middle of the desert! Poor Duckie..

In other news, I chose this photo for one reason: I do NOT want to end up like him.
In 2 months, I am leaving my current job and Life and going on a World adventure, trying to make my way as a freelance photographer.
I you are interested in learning more about my travel, and follow me during my adventures, please visit my other blog: The World Trail. I'd be glad to have some people interested in what I'll do hehe.

And finally, I have also updated my website and the gallery looks a bit better and more "pro". What do you think?

The Sun Voyager


The Sun Voyager (1971).

A sculpture by Jon Gunnar Arnason representing a viking ship in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. I find it rather interesting and stylish! I also got the chance to see it at night, with northern lights dancing above it. Such a magical view!

Alternate Reality 2


Photographing puddles are fun!
I wonder.. Are those puddles a temporary mirror to another parallel dimension of our world? Are those people on the other side wondering the same thing?
In case people aren't able to figure out this photo. It's a puddle reflecting the buildings behind, and turned upside down!
Sometimes the simplest effect can play tricks and illusions on our minds.

Rio I


The Camino had a huge variety of landscapes. From mountains, to valleys, rivers, forests, and flat land with fields..
This picture was taken (if I remember well) after Hospital del Orbego. Following a nice little river with so many varieties of birds singing a beautiful symphony!
I was working on it in color, but when, out of curiosity, I tested in monochrome.. I felt it had much more emotions and impact. I loved working on that sky. It almost looked like a painting!
I guess it's always a good idea to test different settings while working on photos, see how they look with different "White balances" and in monochrome.
