Here are a selection of photographs taken during our second trip to Albufeira, Portugal. This time, my partner and I were staying in relative walking distance between the Old and the New Town. Again, the majority of the photographs were composed around the Old Town. During this trip, I was pushing myself out of my comfort zone, and experimenting with the monochrome filter on my new HTC One M8 smartphone, as well as depth of field. And I must have to confess that they were bourne out of a combination of anxiety and panic attacks, and one or two hangovers. The photographs were more than just snapshots of our holiday, they were to form the basis of a portfolio, for me to edit on an Intermediate Digital Photography course I had enrolled on that September.
