Summer's Fading











I get nostalgic about the end of summer almost as soon as it has begun. I've been known to sigh "summer's almost over" in early July. It just goes by so fast (in this part of the world at any rate). These images were taken in Oregon and California during my June trip to the Pacific Coast. This year has been full of wonderful travels and there's more globetrotting to come. Later this week I leave for an actual vacation. I'm going to Poland to visit family and we're doing a little side trip to Berlin as well. I'll be back in early September. Have a wonderful end of summer! Sigh.

Such beautiful photos (as always), Irene.

Have a wonderful trip to Poland! My cousin is getting married in Warsaw in 2 weeks and I'm just gutted that I can't make it. I can't wait to see the photos you make, even if they'll make me feel more nostalgic and homesick.

What I love about these images, Irene, is that they are all so simple yet so soft and beautiful. You have a vision with your work that I struggle to try and attain.

Wishing you a safe and memorable trip!

Hi Irene,
Your pictures are really awesome!!!! I really love them and I must say that I’ve become your fan.  What I like the most is the simplicity and originality of your pictures. Those places incite people to break free. Where did you click all those pictures???? It’s like heaven on earth…
Coming back to what I wanted to say,  I’ll be very grateful to you if you could share some tips on your blog about how you click such fine pictures. I got the opportunity to learn photography at university and here I am, I’ve recently created a blog to post some of my pictures but if professionals like you could give some feedback, it would be really nice. And your feedback will certainly help the amateur that I am, to improve. Here is the link to my blog: http://myluv4photography.blogspot.com/
If you could just drop in some comments in my blog, it will be really nice of you and I’m going to consider myself lucky enough to learn from you 

Honestly those are some of the nicest photos I have ever seen! Love the processing style and how they capture a moment rather than just a scene. Awesome!

You should try selling them somewhere that sells fine-art prints such as http://www.fotoviva.co.uk
