Where's the wabbit?

My friend Frikosal brings to his blog an interesting question. Regarding the quality of his images, he asks himself what part of the beauty comes from the image itself and what part comes just from that magic moment that he experienced when taking the picture? In other words, how can we measure our pictures taking out all of our emotional links that brought us the magic moment of that shoot. It's a hard question.

Yesterday morning I saw this little rabbit. I couldn't take any good picture out of it, but besides the total lack of image quality I want to post it because I know that many of you will understand the strong emotions that I felt having this little rabbit so close to me. In the first image the rabbit was ~3 meter from my lens.

A Cistus for Katie

If an admired photographer asks for something, one has to respond.

Once, another admired photographer asked for a fork, and later for a ball pen. I had to do something. Now Katie asks me for a flower, but not any flower, a special one. This is the same flower from two posts ago but 17 minutes older and some nasty photoshop arrangements in the background to make it look better.

If you don't know Katie Barnes, take a look at this slideshow and tell me, besides the grate photos and the nice music and explanations: don't we need a hotel like this here in Europe?

With the fall of 'the wall' there is no alternative to Capitalism, we have ruled capitalism in Scandinavia, wild in Russia, and polluted in China, we have all kinds of capitalism flavours but no viable alternative. A place like 'the hostel in the forest' were everything is different it's an oasis were one can dream in a better different sustained world.

Sabadell, the city you see under this sunset sun, it's a really nice town. Streets smell like roses, birds freely sing and love is in the air... It's people are nice and friendly. From the many parks and gardens it's to mention the 'parc de Catalunya' with 45 Hectare, you must see it. But the best thing that Sabadell has by far is that it's only 15 minutes from Terrassa.

* To understand this post you need to be from Sabadell or Terrassa, two neigbour cities with similar population

Cistus 10 minutes before opening

This flowers are kind of magic, they live just a day. They open in the morning and on the afternoon they have lost their leaves. The next day new flowers will bloom.

I dream on a picture with many of this flowers. I have it on my mind but I'm unable to capture it. It's escaping me.
