On words and images

Since starting the blog, we've been playing a lot with photography, trying to give the texts here that visual kick that hopefully would get them noticed.

Truth be told, although this is meant to be a storytelling driven space, I’ve been fully aware from the very beginning that great visuals are not merely a plus to the words, but quite simply a necessity. So this is not a post about me realizing that people do not spend anymore too much time reading and they prefer visual content, that’s a known trend nowadays and, beyond debating whether this is good or bad, I absolutely pledge for always producing and using good quality photo content.

But…we’re not all professional photographers and there’s always a learning curve, which is also the case of this entire blogging venture. It’s a team effort here (don’t you just love my mastery in using corporate language? :)) and – if you’ll allow a bit of shameless promo – I would say we’re getting better and better at it.

This all is, in fact, just a long, long introduction about how this post is about photos, these Black&White photos that we’ve playing with and which all …well, they just came up too good not to be published. I’ll be posting some of them on Instagram, but there’s nothing stopping me from posting all of them here. Well, the perks of having your own blog!:)

Hope you’ll enjoy them, do let me know what you think!

    Oh they turned out beautiful! There is something so dramatic about black & white photography, suddenly shape and textures just stand out that much more and there is this enhanced emotion. How did the ideas or concept for the photos evolve? 🙂

    So glad you shared them!

      Thank you, Kika! I am so glad you like them.
      Actually, I wanted something very colourful initially, centered about the tulips that appear in some of the photos. But then also wanted to try something for the Instagram project, with the B&W theme and…from here, just went with the flow:)
