    Here is my entry for this week’s photo challenge, taken in Lisbon a while ago. Hard to believe it was December. I really like this city, and its bridge. If someone tells me to go back there, I will… 😉

  • Weekly photo challenge: Refraction

    Weekly photo challenge: Refraction

    My entry for this week’s photo challenge. I took this one a couple of years ago, in a wonderful summer in Portugal.

  • Carvoeiro

    Carvoeiro

    A picture from my quick trip to Portugal a few weeks ago. Taken in Carvoeiro, close to Portimao. I don’t know what that construction around that church is, but it looks like a wind barrier. Or an upside down boat… Also, I discovered some new wooden walks around the cliffs, with great views to the sea.…

    The unknown beaches.

    I did a quick trip this last weekend. I visited the Algarve, the south part of Portugal, an area I really love. These pictures are from some of the beaches I went to. The plan was drive to a place, lay on the sand, read a book, try to swim a bit in the chilly water…

    Lisbon (3)

    Long time since last post! As I said, I’ve had some busy period of time in the past weeks. Now that I’m back at home, I will try to post more often.  I’m working on editing and processing almost 400 pictures I took during my visit to Salt Lake City. Hint: look at my twitter feed…

    Lisbon (2)

    I still have a few pictures left from my trip to Lisbon in December. This is in Praça dos Restauradores, where you can see this monument with two statues at each side, one symbolizes Independence and the other Victory. Not sure which one I took the picture of, but I like those two concepts. A lot.

    Cascais (2)

    Two pictures with birds on them from my Lisbon trip, a few weeks ago. Going to the beach in December is great but it wasn’t my intention to have a swim, so I just enjoyed playing in the sand with my daughter and stalking seagulls, like the ones shown in the first picture. This was taken…

  • Alfama (2)

    Alfama (2)

    As I said, you need to walk a lot if visiting Lisbon. You can do a stop in some terraces called miradouros, and rest a bit. The views, if the weather is good and the air clear, are amazing. The first picture was taken from Igreja de Graça. There is a small coffee there, and waiting for the…

  • Monument to the Discoveries

    Monument to the Discoveries

    Another picture from Lisbon. You can walk from the 25 of April bridge to here. It will take a bit, but this monument is a quite spectacular thing to look at. A good amount of Portugal’s discovery history is represented here also.  I used an electric tram for the return, something that I completely recommend,…
