A Curious Question To / Ciara J Alberts

1600x1200 (1) copie

What’s the best thing to do when you live on a traveling carnival?

I think the best thing to do when you’re out on the midway is observe the crowds and get a feel for what the local people are like within each little pocket of America.

Yeah definitely. I was with some friends who were looking for a graffiti spot and we ended up at an abandoned apartment complex where there were some old fire extinguishers laying around. My friend grabbed one and started spraying so i snapped a couple of shots with a disposable camera I had with me. Kind of a lame story hah

I took this photo in Madeira (Portugal), in the highest mountain of the island.

We were expecting a normal hiking day but what we found was an extremely windy day with a lot of mist, I was enjoying like a little kid but freezing cause every hour my girlfriend was stealing me some parts of my clothes  (scarf, gloves, jacket…) as it was getting colder and colder. Even that it was amazing to be there surrounded by nothing but cliffs.

The photo was taken with an Olympus mju-II and Fuji Superia Xtra 400.

The story behind that picture is actually quite simple. I took it while taking a night walk with a couple of friends around our neighbourhood. It was a very cold night, and as we aproached the lake I noticed how strange the lights looked filtered through the mist and reflected on the water’s surface. It’s just the light from a few lamp posts on the other side of the lake, but that night it looked like something else.
I went back to that place many times, but I never saw them like that again.
