Casa de Pasto

Decor Feature & Interview with Chef Diogo Noronha   When I was preparing my graduation thesis, I decided to pick a restaurant to photograph for my decor feature; luckily I knew someone – the young, energetic and very talented chef Diogo Noronha. After a long stint at Pedro e o Lobo, an elegant-yet-casual restaurant serving modern takes on very typical Portuguese recipes, he went on to open his own (absolutely fantastic) place, Casa de Pasto. And, with […]

Paris #6 – La Seine

Ending the Paris 35mm series with a bang, here are some of my favourite shots of the riverbanks and two bonus (the Avenue de L’Opera and a walk along some park gates). This was a wonderful trip and I had a ridiculous amount fun and ate a ridiculous amount of food and spent a ridiculous amount of money (on food). I did not buy any souvenirs because I don’t need a €5 keychain with a plastic […]

A couple of shots I got developed last-minute from my Paris trip that I couldn’t include in previous posts and thought deserved their own special moment. On our last night we wanted to return to a wonderful restaurant where we’d eaten the most amazing food all week (Le Bistrot de l’Universite, thank you Stuart for the tip)- so we’d end the trip on the highest gastro-note possible. Unfortunately, it was closed; our second option was also […]

Paris #5 – Architecture

I decided to split ‘Architecture’ and ‘Cityscapes’ since I have a lot of shots dedicated to both of them separately. The final post, ‘Cityscapes’, will focus a lot more on the wider view of the Paris landscape and skyline, while this one is a bit more oriented towards the beauty of the Paris buildings by themselves, whether they are known landmarks or not.

Paris #4 – Doors, Statues and Points of View

Another random-looking but carefully picked set of pictures from Paris – two more posts to go, focusing on streets and architecture! Which picture is your favourite? Mine, obviously, is Gabri brandishing his camera, but the ice-cream man, the couple in front of “Les Ecuries de Josephine” and the goats at the Jardin des Tuilleries (can ANYONE tell me why they’re there?) come in at a close second. Also, the gate with the golden details really […]

Paris #3 – Aux Champs-Elysées

Long time no analog! University work has been keeping me busy, but this Saturday I thought I’d take advantage of the fantastic English weather and stay indoors. I have so many things that I need to post and I haven’t had time since I have so much reading to do every week. First, we need to set the mood: This is just a couple of pictures I took last September in Paris. On our last full […]

Sacrosanct

This is it, the last one. Thank you for accompanying me on my 35mm analog photography trip through the humid and heavily vegetated streets of Manila and the shores of liquid mercury of the Philippines in general. This is a final compilation of photographs taken inside a very beautiful church, the name of which escapes me. Most of them I’m not posting since it was dark and they came out blurry, but I particularly like the […]

Paris #1 – Curiosities, Textures, Details

Still waiting for the positive scans and the final film from Paris but decided to keep this regular posting thing up and, again, divide things into themes. Since I really want to make a post dedicated to the more landscape/architectural-type pictures I took whilst in Paris, I thought it would be a decent idea to post some miscellaneous pictures that stood out to me for different reasons – whether that be particular textures, lighting effects, […]

Organised Chaos

The first of a series of posts I will be making of my trip to Manila last year. I’m trying to be a little more coherent and make smaller, shorter galleries divided into themes for each trip instead of one big post with 70 photographs every time I travel. Let me know if you prefer it that way – I definitely do, it’s a way of staying productive and posting consistently even when I go […]
