Falling for Fall: “Parque del Amor”

1

Love’s magic is around “Parque del Amor”. You can smell it, see it, or taste it in every little place and detail of this traditional park in Perú.

“El Parque del Amor” is located in the Miraflores district of Lima, Perú, where people come to enhance their love.

It is like poetry in front of the sea. You can feel, hear, taste, and touch the flavor, just in front of the gate, introducing you to this special and unique adventure.

Look around. The biggest ode to love is just in front of your eyes, a magnificent work of art.

A big sculpture in the middle provokes your senses. The love is printed on the walls. Tiles written by famous and not so famous writers who represent the desire to tell the word something about love.

It’s a magical place, with a lot of little lovers’ histories. Go and write on the wall your own story.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    The World According to Herr Willie: Lake Toba

    Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.

    12 Months, 12 Projects: July - Freelensing Fun

    My 2015 resolution is to do 12 photography projects, one for every month. In July, I tried freelensing or unscrewing the lens from my SLR and holding it in front of the camera body. By tilting the lens slightly I was able to change the focus. For this experiment, I used my Konstruktor and Olympus OM-1.
