Living, working and photographing locally for 3 years now I built up my landscape’s gallery that I would like to share here with other photographers and people who also enjoy photography.
Reaching my destinations by bike mostly I managed to visit many hidden and undiscovered places here in Newport and around it. I not only make some nice pictures there but also have some amazing and relaxing moments I mostly spend meditating or connecting myself to the nature. That’s how going through my pictures later brings me back to what I felt there.
So here we have a little gallery of pictures I made while cycling around Newport during my free time.

Some people who don’t live in the U.K. actually think Wales is a part of England. So, here I am to set the record straight for a country that is very proud, has it’s own language, it’s own flag and what’s more some of the most beautiful landscape I have ever seen.

We can’t get enough of street food in Cardiff. Only yesterday I posted some news about a brand new event called Street Food Warehouse (which you can read about here) and today I’m bring some more exciting news.
In recent years Cardiff has seen a huge growth in the popularity of street food and for good reason! Cardiff is really starting to thrive in terms of street food and the growth is showing no signs of slowing down. It’s a new year and I have been anxiously awaiting news about what we can expect in 2015.
If you don’t already know…. DEPOT is back!
