I´m from Tenerife. Canary Islands, Spain. And I would like to share a special place on this island.
There is a special place in Tenerife and I would like to share it with you. It is the graveyard of San Andrés.
San Andrés is a village located on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands (Spain). It is located 10 km north of the capital city Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in a coastal area by the Anaga Mountains. The village is situated on a mountain slope with an urban area located near the valley and the beach (Las Teresitas). San Andrés is one of the oldest villages of the Canary Islands, and was founded around 1497.
Las Teresitas has a big secret. If you go to this beach you will find one of the oldest cemeteries of the island, and It’s very magical. The cemetery is abandoned and no longer a place to bury anyone. Many tombstones are broken. But to be next to the beach does not seem so gloomy. There are also many baby cribs. This cemetery has a special story. U2 were there!
In February 1991 they were in Tenerife for the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. They came to take some promotional photos for his LP “ACHTUNGBABY”. If you have the LP you will see many photos taken at night of Carnival. They knew the cemetery too.
Do you have the LP? Look carefully the photos! Perhaps you’d seen.
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.
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!
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.

"I find taking a photo with a film camera really ceremonial," shares Turkey-based tax adviser and cinephile Mithat Erdoğan on why he chose to document his daily life on film. Get to know our featured community newcomer in this brief interview.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
Patrick Tsai is an American Photographer based in Japan. In this interview, we get to know more about him and his latest photo project, Barnacle Island. It's his third installment to his photo diary series about rescuing an abandoned dog on the beach and moving to a remote island in Japan.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
