Anyone who knows me, or who has been following me on one of the social networks (Facebook, Instagram) will no doubt have heard me harp on about Gurushots. I’ve been working with them for several years now, but recently things have really taken off and the site is now one of the most popular photography… Read More

Updates from the East of Spain

I’m now one month into #vanlife, I’m not certain I officially qualify for #vanlife as my ‘van’ is over 7 metres long. These past few weeks have flown by, I can’t believe how fast the days are passing. With winter approaching the days are definitely getting shorter, but it’s not that. I think it’s more to… Read More

Instagram Stories

Kiddy’s correfoc

During the summer months every town and city in Spain will host some kind of celebration, or fiesta as they as known here. It’s part of the reason I’ve been here so long. You may have heard of some of these fiestas such as the running of the bulls or tomatina. There are literally thousands more often on a smaller scale but still held with great pride and vigor. In the north eastern region of Catalonia one of the standard events that take place at these fiestas is the correfoc.

This past weekend it was the children’s turn. Under strict (not) adult supervision and the appropriate safety gear (hardly) the kids were let lose to run through the streets holding sticks with fireworks on the end.

Sounds mad, is mad.

Around 9pm and with great excitement the first fireworks were lit and the madness began. I was surprised at the age of some of the participants, I swear some of them were no older than 4 or 5.

The event lasted nearly 2 hours and at the end of the evening I was glad to head home burn free.

I´ve put together a gallery of a few of the shots I took that evening. Next Saturday it’s the turn of the grown ups, expect more sparks, more madness and more burns!

Let the adventure begin

Many say that home is where the heart is, well for me it’s always felt that I should be travelling. I’ve never really settled in one place for more than a few years, constantly travelling and seeking new experiences and ways of life. For the last few years however, I have found myself somewhat trapped… Read More
