Introducing “Candid Observations” - a new segment here on the blog where I’d like to share imagery that doesn’t fit into any premeditated project or series I’m working on. This is just a working title for the minute so it’s subject to change, but as I had the creative itch to share some of the work I’ve been photographing in some capacity, I thought it best not to wait around.
The first image set I wanted to share with you is a selection of captures from a day trip we took to Koprivshtitsa - a small town with a lot of big history back in Bulgaria, in August 2020. Most of these were shot on my trusty Pentacon Six TL, on Portra 160, and there are a few select captures from my 35mm point and shoot as well.
I really enjoyed taking that time away in Bulgaria. It made it easy to forget about the mess that is Covid and relax for a little bit. As we enter into another winter, still having to put up with this pandemic, I hope it’s not too long until we can all go out and reconnect properly again. On that note, I’d like to share the final image for this week - a capture from the Rila Monastery - another site we visited on our trip to Bulgaria.
