Palma de Mallorca.. Combine Photography & Family

I am very happy that my wife agrees that I take some of my photography-equipment with me even when we are taking our annual "Family Holiday" which is at least partly close to a beach! For sure in return she expects from me a kind of documentary photos from our vacation which is not somehow look like a snapshot..

So I limited myself even in advance by choosing which lens I take with me and which one I leave home.. I felt in the moment I decided to leave my Sigma 70-200 at home a kind of regret but to be honest the main reason was the weight.. I am pretty sure that I would mainly leave it in the hotel room.. So why not to leave home.. In the 2 weeks we spend on Palma de Mallorca I experienced several moments where I wished I would have taken it with me.. Afterwards when I compare the time I would carry it and the possible images I would have had the chance to take an image with, than I am glad about my decision.. Overall it has to be considered that I have to take care about my family.. Photography is in that case secondary..

Every journey every trip takes you to somewhere.. Even to make a acquaintance of someone new will take you to new opportunities, challenges, happiness and may be regrets.. Who knows? This image inspires me to think about that kind of thoughts..

Well, frankly said: I was not that much early enough awake to go out and make the photos I planned to take.. The main reason was linked that as a father of 2 children you get also tired at the end of a day and in the morning every minute additional you can sleep is a win in the lottery..:-) But here is one which I think is better to have the girl on the photo even from behind.. I also took some without her but when I compare them I feel better to present this one..

This is a further image including persons / a family.. It was somehow rude from the family even they recognized me that I set-up my tripod and DSLR and waiting that very moment to take my image.. They kept going and spend all the valuable time for my set-up in front of my viewer and within my image.. So I did the best I can by including them into my image.. It is sometimes the challenge to make the best you can with your equipment you have and the conditions you are facing.. It was not my intention to have a discussion in the morning and start a wonderful day with negativ influence of it..

Something very common for southern Europe: Slim streets.. and people waiting for someone by leaning on a wall.. Unfortunately this lady recognized me and my DSLR.. In addition I needed a second longer than I had to make the setting and to take the shot.. At the end I made the best I can.. And I feel happy with my image and the outcome... Only that count's for me for the time being.. Since I am not earning my salary via photography.. Otherwise I assume that I would react very different and also focused more intensively to improve my reflex by improving my knowledge on my DSLR. That would enable me to the take the image without spending unnecessary "long" time..
