Holiday in Ibiza

The best camera is the one you have with you

Not sure who said that but it’s true. This year for my annual pilgrimage to Ibiza with Mr JB I decided to leave my camera at home. We were only going for five days, I reasoned…I didn’t think I’d miss it – after all, it is my day job now. Time for a holiday!

Hippy Market

Day one and we went as usual to the Hippy Market at Es Cannar. There are various markets around the island but this one on a Wednesday is the oldest dating back to 1973. Wasn’t missing the camera so far as had shot plenty of sights at the market in previous years.

Day two and we headed off into Ibiza old town, a UNESCO heritage site. It was a beautiful day and I was missing my camera 🙁 I challenged myself to do the best I could with my iPhone.

I was reasonably impressed with the results for close ups of food but the scenic shots left me longing for my Canon 5D…

Snails – Yuk!

Day four we went to watch the sun go down at the legendary Cafe del Mar. The phone camera was doing alright I think (it all got a bit hazy after one too many cocktails!).

Good times
Aperol Spritz the Cafe del Mar way!

Despite only having my phone with me I still managed to capture some great moments from our holiday so the saying really is true – the best camera IS the one you have with you. Especially if you are going to be partaking in lots of cocktails!

In other news…

I was delighted to get home and find out that Neil and Raymond’s wedding was featured in the September-October edition of Tie the Knot Scotland. Great article about a gorgeous couple.

Talking of gorgeous couples I have just delivered the new Mr and Mrs Roberts’ online gallery of their wedding which I had the honour of capturing just before I flew off to the white isle so look out for that blog soon.

And finally…this weekend I am photographing my little brother’s wedding in England. Got to try and hold the camera still whilst no doubt blubbing at the same time. Wish me luck!
