Médina of Marrakech

Médina of Marrakech

Earlier this month I travelled to Marrakech with my family to celebrate my Mum’s 50th birthday. Despite a small glitch with the flight being cancelled at Manchester airport (due to Spanish air traffic controllers going on strike)

We had the choice to either cancel the trip entirely or get ourselves to Gatwick airport and fly at 7am in the following morning. Thankfully, we choose the latter and spent the following three days having the best time in the Médina of Marrakech.

Casa de Campo

The day before I took this photograph I had travelled above Casa de Campo on the cable car ride. Being in the cable car gave me a fantastic view of the park and the beautiful snow covered mountains in the distance. I’d seen tree plantations and vast areas of land dedicated to regenerating the park from the air and I decided to take a closer look and take some photographs on foot the following afternoon.

I climbed a rather steep path up a hill in order to take this photograph, but I certainly think it was worth the extra effort in the end. The playground hidden amongst the trees and tree plantations in the lower right of the photograph go someway in showing the scale of human intervention for regeneration against the vastness of nature.

Madrid Metro Station

Madrid Metro Stations

In the early hours of Saturday morning I arrived back in the UK after six wonderful days exploring and photographing the Spanish capital of Madrid.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing a selection of documentary photographs that I took while encountering life on the city streets and wandering in Madrid’s largest urban park Casa de Campo.

While I continue to make my way through processing and editing the 900 photographs I shot during the trip, I thought I’d start things off by posting this portrait taken in a Madrid Metro Station.

The metro is one of the quickest modes of transport in Madrid, yet there are plenty of passing moments which take place at station platforms that reflect a more tranquil side to the city’s busy cosmopolitan image.

Story From Downtown Macau

As promised in my last blog post, I thought I would share my experience of my day trip to Macau (which lies on the western side of the Pearl River Delta, bordering Guangdong province in the North). I went to China with my Dad and we were both in agreement that it would be a shame for me not to go and explore a little further out.

Having heard that Macau was only a two and a half hour coach ride away, off I went for the day by myself.
