What’s Your Story?

So, what’s your story? Not sure? Okay, l’ll go first then:

After weeks of planning and the excitement of my upcoming trip, I have finally arrived in Germany. And like I do every year when I’m here, I grab the first chance I get to walk to the bakery around the corner to get fresh rolls for breakfast.

If you live in Germany you may not think anything of it. But this seemingly insignificant everyday activity is so special to me I have to take it in properly by “taking the scenic route”, camera in hand of course.

The weather has been surprisingly magnificent and offers great opportunities to shoot a bit of Reggie’s Portra, which is one of the “Recipes of the Month” for our April Theme of SOOC – Storytelling

Reggie’s Portra delivers jpegs straight out of camera with great, rich colours, nice contrast with an overall warm feel and fabulously blue skies.

I really enjoy the ease of going out, shooting some great looking jpegs and sharing them pretty much instantly. The joy that comes from this doesn’t get old.

And what about you? What have you been shooting? Do you enjoy Reggie’s Portra? And what about any of the other recommended recipes for our “Challenge of the Month”? What do you think of the recipes and the challenges? Let me know in the comments here or on YouTube. I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
