Riviera Maya and Belize . Part II

We left the beautiful lagoon of Bacalar and even the Mexico to move to Belize.It was an adventure to cross the border because we missed the bus that was leaving in the afternoon and we arrived in Santa Elena, a small town by the border, without knowing where to go.Fortunatly we found some people who were going to Corozal and knowing the place a bit,they took us there and helped to find a room for the night.The morning later, with just few hours of sleep, we took another bus (you know the yellow... continue reading

Travelling Mexico - Riviera Maya

Let's start saying that I love to travel and all the times I get the opportunity to do it, I just bring my backpack and go.This time I flew all the way to Cancun, a beautiful city on the mexican coast, rich under many aspects, like the not further Playa del Carmen, a touristic place where to relax, sunbath, go sail, snorkel or just enjoy the Mexican food.We then move down following the famous Riviera Maya and ended up for a few days in Tulum, a wonderful place where you can see... continue reading

The importance of collections and lightboxes

Don't know how many of you out of there have a collection,a lightbox or both;what I wanted to share with you is my experience about mine and the sales.What I noticed making my own collections and the lightbox is that my pictures have obviously increased their visibility,but not,as you can think,because of the collection in itself,but because someone else noticed its picture shared by me and thought to do the same or someone else just liked it and thought to use for the collection.If you... continue reading

Trip in Barcelona

I'm back writing a blog after a while to share some pictures and informations from my last trip in Barcelona.First of all,for the ones who have never been there,it's an amazing city with lots of opportunities: from beach to walks...from clubs,restaurants,bars to museums,teathers,parks and lots more;you can really find all of what you're looking for.This was my third time there,so I already knew where to go,what to visit,when to go take the pics and it was way easier with a "plan".One of... continue reading

Macro lenses and pics

Last week was going to buy a new lense and to start with the macro photography,captured by the beautiful images I have seen around lately.Went to the shop and asked for the Tamron 90mm f2.8 which is a great one and not too expensive,compared to the Nikon ones,like the Nikkor 60mm f2.8 or the Nikkor 105mm f2.8;another great one is the Sigma 105mm f2.8...don't know about the Canon ones (out of the Canon 100mm f2.8),more into Nikon stuff,sorry!Anyway I asked about it but they didn't know and even... continue reading

Approval percentage and maximum amount

Have waited few days,a week or so to see if something was going to change;the point is that a week ago I was uploading some pictures when I noticed that the maximum amount of pictures I could upload decreased from 70 per week to 12 per week.Now I understand that the quality of pictures is something important,even understand that too much pictures uploaded with nosense is frustrating for everyone,but that number is really too small.I'm just an hobbiest so I wasn't maybe... continue reading
