Leonard Cohen

On Thursday we went to see Leonard Cohen in Bilbao. The concert just deserves two words "IN-CREDIBLE" It was amazing no sillz dances or special effects, just music, lyrics, poetry and a great voice. He will turn 75 on Monday and I do not know any young singer that can put such passion into the music.

We had seats on row 2 quite to the side but we managed to move to the center of row 4. I took the G10 and I am quite happy with the results, considering the high ISO and lack of light.

I have the DVD with the Concert in the O2 Arena in London last year and it is really a must have.

Summer is over

Today summer has ended, at least it feels like it. We have spent the whole last week at the beach, enjoying the sun. Today it looks a bit different. The weather forecast is more of the same for the next days. I hope it will be better on Friday since we have one of the big events over the weekend here in Laredo. I will take tons of pictures so I will post more about it next week.

Here comes the rain again...

Today I had to test my birthday present so we went diving. The sea was quite rough and we got seasick on the way to the dive spot. The water was quite dirty and we could not see much, we had about 5 meter visibility. I didn´t take too many pictures, mainly because we did not see anything interesting, but I am quite happy with the results. I got used quickly to the external flash (Intova ISS 2000) and the G10 was perfect for the job. Next week we will try again and see if the conditions are better. I am really looking for the trip to the Red Sea in October. Until then I hope you like this ones.


More coral

One of the few fishes we saw today, here you can see how much dirt was floating around.

This one was around 5 cm long

At the sea

I know that I haven´t posted for too long but I just don´t manage to process all the photos that I have been taking. It will take quite a while to sort and prepare them for showing. I am sure that you will enjoy them once they are ready.

One of the things that I miss most in Düsseldorf is the Sea. Here I just can´t get enough of it. I could sit the whole day and look at it.

But the kids don´t give me that much time so we just...


even drink a bit of it;

or just make castles in the sand. And old hobby that I had left behind more than 20 years ago.

Greetings from Laredo :-D
