While some say is gay, i say is cool. It was a little bit pricey, i know, but, imo (and that’s what it matters in the end) it’s an amazing little digi cam. So, the first (Franci) snaps:

e pronto….



It’s my birthday…

It’s my birthday, so i’m allowing myself to post some random photos without any justification.

OHHH!!! And for Portuguese people (and/or italian people who understand portuguese, a link to my tumblr, written in portuguese: www.miauzz.tumblr.com)

Burn baby, burn!

Hello there Miss Laura!

Cig, glass, art.

mirror, moviment, art.


Hey miauzz, nice effect, do you mind to NOT repeat it again?

Now THAT’S what i call SandArt!

And lets finish with some SisteArt!

Ciao ciao, Happy birthday to me, Tanti auguri a me, Parabens a mim, e tal e cenas.

All photos in APX 100 or TX, scan from print.

I’ve started to print again after a long time… im still tunning my performance, so please dont be hard on me. (expect you, you can be hard on me any time you want dear ❤ ) (advices are always welcome!) (oh, and about the strange frames on some of the photos… just forget it, i was just testing different setups in the enlarger)

(click on the image to enlargeeeeeeeee)

Me and Francesca, catching some sun after lunch.

Back in 2007, in Porto, Francesca studying at Biblioteca Almeida Garret.

At Mondelo, having lunch on the beach, 2 months ago. Love her “hat”…

Back to Porto again, and to 2007. Jardim de Serralves. Its a shame that i miss the focus in this one…

In Porto aslo, but in Jardins do Palacio de Cristal, doing something we do it very very well: catching sun.

Location: Palermo. Date: Unknown. Dont ask me what happen to the photo, that white bottom line…

“E c’è una parte della vita mia
Che assomiglia a te
Quella che supera la logica
Quella che aspetta un’onda anomala”…

Isola di Ortigia, Siracusa, Sicilia. Thanks Marco, for giving us your room 🙂

E c’è una parte della mia città
Che assomiglia a te
Quella dei bar con fuori i tavolini
E del silenzio di certi giardini.

Etna Volcano, Sicilia. Yes, i dont have a 2000€ rangefinder, but that doesnt mean i cant have eye contact when i make photos.

On our balcony. Although i dont like (me in) this photo, she asked me to post it 😛

“E c’è una parte della luna
Che assomiglia a te
Quella dove si specchia il sole
Che ispira musica e parole”

(i think you will kill me after you see the title…)

And the winner of the food contest is:

Miss Kira K from Israel! (which, btw, is sexy as hell, dont you agree?!)

Actually she was the one who gave me the idea to do this contest, so im kinda happy that she won!

About the secret recipe… insted of send her the recipe, THIS FRIDAY i’ll do an entry here with a link to my vimeo acount, where i’ll post a video of me doing it… so than everybody can do it also! 😀

my first idea was to give some extra awards…

First to Sebastian and Bernhard… to Seb because i had the chance to meet him in Wien, and he payed me some beers, and also because, although he doesnt know it (yet?) he is portuguese… And second, to Bernh… because, and im not kidding, the first thing that he told me when we first meet was, screaming: “ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED?! NO, REALLY, ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID?”, just because i did not knew here has the fucking door (meeting point) we were suppose to meet … (but in the end, he was really really cool with me and, together with Seb, responsible for a huge hangover)

To Suzan, because she was really really cool with me, giving me a place to sleep and showing me the city, and also introducing me to the traditional nederlandse fast food (ahahahha, what a laugh…)

To Melvin and Jorid, because they are a nice couple and because they were both really cool to travel down to maastricht to have dinner with me and Suzan…

And finally to the only person who try her luck in this contest via SMS… Laura – Bola de Berlim! Because… just because.

BUT, since i had to buy a new HD to my mac, and its my sister’s birthday now, and she asked me an iPod… im kinda broke… :X So, Kira’s award will be sent this week or next Monday, but the others will have to wait a little while…

So, thats it!!! 😀 And wait to see the video, next friday 😉

will be anouced later this week 😛

I’ve been away these last month, i know… and it will be like this at least until May.

I’m just saying this because i’m afraid that some of my readers, the ones that dont follow the blog via some RSS program, using the old method of just checking from time to time to see if there is any new post (i think most of my portuguese and italian readers use this method), think that the blog is somehow dead.  Well, is not. I just need some time for myself. I’ll be back in May (but the winners will be annouced later this week, i repeat! 😉 )
And i’m sorry for not being so active these days when it comes to comment other’s blogs like the sweet Sebastian, who’s blogging a lot (and with quality) these last days, and others, bla bla bla.

Some photos of what i’ve been doing lately:

My new.. err… aromatic…. eerrrr… plant is born!

Being inspired in kitchen, and trying out new things… (i know it seems a simple omolet!)

Preparing myself to spend some time in the dark… room!

Being asked to shoot some concerts…

And thats it for now…

First of all… In 2 or 3 days i will launch a contest here… is not a classic photographic contest, but i hope you guys will like it… everybody can try to win the amazing prize, coz it is not one of those “best photo” kind of contest! in fact, you dont need a camera to win it 😀

Ps – I will only promote the contest if the posting of these photos won’t get me killed by my housemate David and my girl:

Jolly good time!

Talking about my penis maybe.

Or maybe she is just under the effect of some illegal substances.

Dramatic moment.


So… see you guys in 2 or 3 days 😉

After a conversation with Mr.Tome last night, when we where talking about streetphotography (conversation that had continued today at lunch), and after spending some hours at www.in-public.com last night (thanks again Tome for the tip) i decided to go out today to try to do some streetphotography. As you know i always do photos of friends, portraits and stuff… so i decided to give streephotography a shot… (pun intended).

Of course i dont have a leica, and its not always easy to be unnoticed with the big dSLR, but i did my best…

(oh, and i really dont understand flickr colorprofile…)

City is in danger? Call Batman.

Bla bla bla.

Im listing “Dont lose yourself” by Laura Veirs at the moment. And you?

For tome, since he is the reason of me making this post <3: ANDARE, ANDARE!

Huge lens, small… you decide.

ohhhnooozzzzz, izzzz a selfzzzz.

I guess the dog and the old men like different things. Thats why they get along so well.


This is streetphotography because i took it while i was on the street.

Im still listening to Laura Veirs. And you?


Nice position.

bla bla bla…

And thats it…

So, and i usually dont ask this, i would like you, dear reader, to leave a comment to let me know your opinon of my first attempt to streetphotography, or to leave a donation in my bank account since i broke.
