Shooting Astrid

Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of shooting Astrid. Today I’m going through the photos and picking out the golden nuggets, this is one of them. I took over 500 photos in about an hour and I’m expecting to end up with 8 or 10 good photos to publish. In the mean time, enjoy this lovely sample of the natural beauty of Astrid.

How to DJ on an iPad with DJ Player and Midi Fighter 3D

When I was 13 years old I jammed a piece of metal into my parents stereo to lock the button between the cassette player and the vinyl player, giving the sound of each audio source in each speaker. I would use erasers and coins to weigh down on the needle to slow it down or speed it up and I would beatmix like this with the cassette deck. That was 23 years ago, we’ve come quite a long way since.

Arriva burns!

A few years back, in an attempt to improve and rejuvenate public transportation in Malta, a deal was struck with Arriva to bring us into the 21st century. Plagued by scandals and complaints Arriva quickly disappeared and gave back the responsibility to Malta transport. I wonder how much money burned up in this cluster-fuck of a business deal. Oh, did I mention their buses had a tendency to catch fire? (more…)

Boat Party Pics 2014

Boat parties are a big deal in Malta. Every summer between May and September boats run on a daily basis. Some of them are nice and calm, others go completely wet and wild. The Nordic Bar has some of the most infamous and legendary boat parties on the island and I’m their designated photographer. (more…)

Throwback Thursday – July 2007 – Cat on a can!

In July 2007, I discovered that my cat had taught himself how to use the toilet. Long story short, I tried to teach him and my other cat several years before but the other one was reluctant and didn’t want to learn. Basically you put the litter box on top of the toilet, then you replace it with an aluminum container, after a couple of days you gradually remove more and more sand and make a hole in the aluminum box and after that you remove it and the cat is supposed to use the toilet!

So, my cats were separated into two homes, I kept Baloo, who I guess had seen me use the toilet and one day when I had cleaned his litter box, left it upside down to dry and forgotten about it, I heard a odd sound from the bathroom… and this happened:

 

Baloo was always an odd cat. He would sleep in my arms like a baby on his back, run with me in the woods, he could even cup his paw around my finger and dangle. I think he was part dog, cat and monkey. I never had another pet after him.
