Digital Diares – Paris Moments & Details

Photography / Travels

Travelling isn’t just about getting on airplanes, buying souvenirs and taking pictures (ironically). Travelling is about breathing new air, experiencing great moments, and bringing back with you not keychains but memories. These pictures are artefacts of history, bookmarks of a thrilling page in your life, not postcards to show others the local monuments and landscapes. They’re images to remind you of things you smelled, smiles you received, laughter that escaped you, delicious things you ate, moments […]

Digital Diaries | Paris Cityscapes & Architecture

For my second post in the Digital Diaries series, I have quite a few pictures of Paris, so I decided to split them into Cityscapes and close-up shots. I have posted a lot of 35mm film photographs of my September vacation in Paris with Gabriele on my Travels category which are far, far prettier but, as I said in yesterday’s post, the Digital Diaries posts will be mainly about quick, of-the-moment snapshots rather than beautiful images. […]

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, […]

Some more 35mm shots from Manila. Have another post coming soon of the church we visited and will get the last two rolls of film from Paris soon so I can finally start posting the pictures of that trip that aren’t portraits of Gabriele. Even though I’d kill to have more portraits of him. One thing that struck me about Manila once you left the “rich district” is how much green there is. It’s a complete contrast […]

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 […]

Silver Oceans

The yearly exotic travel destination for the Summer of 2014 were the Philippines. It was probably one of the most tranquil and uneventful trips I’ve ever done with my family, since it was shorter than usual and my parents decided to stick to the beach and avoid cities. We did visit Manila for a couple of days, but that will be up on another post. Today, I’m focusing on the beautiful landscapes, rocky silhouettes and […]

Where The River Meets The Sea

In 1998, the World Expo was held in my hometown – Lisbon. I was 7 years old at the time and even though I barely remember anything from my childhood, I still have very clear and fond memories of the days when I visited the then-Expo. The theme of that year was ‘Oceans’, which is quite fitting if you think that not only is Portugal 50% oceanic coast, but Lisbon itself sits at the very […]
