To photograph fragments is one of my favorite things to do. Having a camera handy (mobile preferably to email it straight away to my Facebook and Twitpic accounts) is a tool I cannot live with out anymore.
Everywhere I go I see fragments that communicate with me. Here are my favorite 20 of 2011. Yes, I did my best to narrow it down to 10 though I didn't know which ones I preferred.
|This stencil is everywhere in Lisbon. It says "What I want is to be happy". This on was shot in Rua do Poço dos Negros. |
|Hearts I drew in a restaurant in Barcelona. Left them there.|
|Barcelona again - The Fish by Frank Ghery.|
|Another stencil in Lisbon. This one in Avenida 24 the Julho. I called it "Don't give up". |
|What's better than a little break after you accomplish something? This moment was right after I finished my 2 weeks business trip to Norway.|
Love to seat outside in a nice café, having a drink and looking at people walking around wondering what they're thinking.
|The beach I used to go every weekend. It's my home town. |
Check the moon on the top left hand side. Lovely, isn't it?
|And again, another stencil. This one here shot in Cais do Sodré, Lisbon.|
|Details: The Tram cables hook on the wall. Perfect!|
(Lisbon, Calçada da Estrela)
|The kids are alright. (Santa Rita, Portugal)|
|One of the most beautiful buildings in Lisbon: Campo de Ourique.|
|This stencil here I call it "Can buy me love". |
|2011 was a great year for me. I moved back to Portugal, found the job I wanted, worked on interesting projects and I found the house I wished for: small, old, super cute and central. This picture actually marks that first moment when I felt at home. My mugs are in, I am in!|
|The basic principle of architecture is the Sun, don't you agree?|
Love this structure, which we straight away link to "House" or "Home".
|This was a year of great trips, some on business other pure pleasure. Another moment in a Non-Place waiting to reack my destiny.|
This picture was shot in Scotland I think.
|Love out of the blue.|
|Moments with friends and others alone.|
|The first butterfly I saw in years,|
|La Vie En Bleu|
(Portuguese sky, isn't it stunning?)
|One of my top 5 pictures. The Full Moon was stunning, the streets were pitch black and the red line is a car's light.|
