Besalú Bridge

Besalú is a little village in the north-east of Catalonia (Spain), in a region known by its volcanoes (all inactive, I think) and for being the place more similar to the Tolkien´s “The Shire”.

We were at Besalú during the Medieval Festival and I took some pics, most of them with a 35mm slide film. Besalú is an amazing place, very quiet and nice, famous for its medieval bridge and its Jewish streets. In my opinion, the best of Besalú are the kind and gentle people, the perfect conservation of the architecture, the food! Gorgeous! And the little hotel, Martana Gardens, where we stayed a couple of days … So many nice things from that place!

    "I have been living in Portland for about 8 years now, off and on and it does feel like home. It is a great place to come back to after traveling. But I think I am happiest on the road or traveling, it feels kind of second nature to me," explains Portland-based photographer Jeff Luker.

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
