Lisbon is such a nice city with so many angles to photograph it that I really think that as a photographic subject it will never be exhausted. These two are part of my Lisboners (Natives, foreigners and tourists) series, one of my favourite themes in Lisbon.
Lisbon was filled with tourists during the weekend... I don't really know why but I do like this photo a lot. Maybe it's the several stories that it tells, maybe it's the myriad of situations one can imagine for each one of these characters... who knows?
Spent the afternoon in my other city by adoption. We went for a walk to the old town, and I really can't understand why doesn't the old center has more people during the weekends. In others cities the old centers are filled with life during weekends. I remember Viana or Óbidos. Setúbal on the other hand, has fewer people in the streets of the old town. I just can't get a plausible reason to that. Maybe someone can one day explain to me this..
No one knows what they are for but in a Management School someone asked in the walls of the university "Economists? What for?"... Rivalries!!!
Still another detail of the constructions in Bulgaria, with the "extended" 1st floor and the stone ground floor.
When I landed in Sofia (Even a bit before in the approach), the first thing Bulgaria shows you, is that it is green. Water is abundant and you see green everywhere. I was shooting a Canon S90 only but the beauty of all these greens made me wich I had brought some film camera and Velvia 50. I'll not forget it next time.
There are only you four variables in photography: Aperture, Speed, ISO and YOU. And the last one is the most important! There's no such thing as correct exposure... There's only YOUR exposure.
Without a doubt the Bulgarian architecture made an impression on me (this was taken at the old town in Plovdiv). The way they expand their houses into public space above the street level is amazing. The mixing of rock and wood is also very interesting.
