How to spend cool time in Madrid and take „NO RULES” & creative photos?

Hi there! How are You doing? All good? :) That time I would like to write about creativity and travel photography. Do you know that voice inside your head, saying „You have to remember about this and about that, and that, and that…” Go to hell with this voice. Once forget about him, and look what will happen ;) That post is what will happen if you forget about all rulles.

Forget about rules

One of the greatest thing when you plan vacation is when you expect nothing. You’re like a water, completly unshaped, waiting for ideas. It always works. This time I had big pleassure to visit and work with my old friend and  fashion photographer – Javier Navarrete – I invite you to visit his site – http://javierlnavarrete.com
Trust me, you’re gonna love his artworks.

My adventure with creativity started on the first day of my trip  – at Lumière Studio. It was time to help Javier in setting perfect light for fashion photography session.

In the meantime Andrea and Kasia started to dress Claudia for pictures in style of 70’s.

First direction was Plaza Mayor. You want to know why I took that place first? The Plaza Mayor has been the scene of multitudinous events: markets, bullfights, football games, and…

Or Madrid city hall – Palacio de Cibeles. On left side of this picture is Real Madrid fountain. I wrote that because when Real wins primera division, all players and fans go celebrate to that fountain.

In Poland we have this quote: „travel broadens the mind”. And I think it’s true. Me and Javier went to rehearsal room, to play and sing some music. Javier took microphone, and I grab drums sticks. We played „Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge” by Marilyn Manson. You can see me playing drums here. It’s me debut ;)
