I arrived to Porto yesterday (Sunday) and I'll be spending here the whole week with a couple of planned trip to the cities nearby. I think that this short holiday is a pretty good opportunity for a little photo project. Although the weather forecast looks really bad for this week (rain every day), I came to Porto with these two things in mind:
- to shoot some night photography of Porto (yes, I dragged a sturdy[=heavy] tripod with me);
- to take a few pictures each day around a theme or something that I've noticed/discovered that struck me about Porto or Portugal.
For the latter, I noticed that Porto has lots of abandoned buildings. Every street has at least a couple of derelict buildings that in many cases are still for sale. But I don't think that these building 'destroy' Porto's look. On the contrary, they give the city it's visual identity and ambience!
FYI: the pictures were taken with an iPhone and edited on an iPad
