Bonifacio Corse

Bonifacio Corse

The astonishing beauty of Bonifacio. I could start a photography blog about this town alone!
I just couldn't stop shooting. That was a mistake... I didn't take the time to look around me
and find the right angles. But this one is nice.

Waterdrops on leaf

Waterdrops on leaf macro shot

This kind of shots, with drops of water on a leaf, have been done a million times before but I still
like to shoot it! The yellow leaf was screaming out: "look at me". I couldn't resist.

One of Belgiums most fotogenic cities for sure: Brugge. These old covered market stands
(I believe... someone help me out...) just couldn't be resisted. I love long shadows.

Small flower in faded background

I think the faded background (F2.8) with its reds and greens and purple
is what makes the shot work as a whole.

The beautiful streets of Ajaccio are mostly in my mind, I wasn't feeling very
well when we visited this city. I would have taken a lot more shots otherwise!

Don't know why exactly I like this one... but the shapes of the old stone table and bench
on the round plateau might have something to do with it.
