Yesterday the day was all about hanging out with one of my best friends in the world. I don’t get to see him that often because he’s living in London, but that doesn’t matter. Things never change between us. I love that.
I’ll tell you all about our adventures another time because today it’s all about brunch!
We went to this place called Pois, café. It’s an austrian café located in Lisbon, near the Lisbon Cathedral.
This is one of my fav spots to have brunch in Lisbon right now. It’s cosy and inviting. The food is consistently good and the staff is nice.
As you can see in the photos there’s also something else that makes this a special place. There are books all over the café that you can take and read while you’re there, while you drink some tea and/or eat a slice of one of the amazing cakes and pies they offer.
Today’s my father’s birthday.
There’s family, movies and cake. In my book that’s a good day.
I thought I’d show you some parts of my room. This is where I spend most of my time when I’m home.
Hope your weekend is going great, mine will be somewhat quiet because something tells me that next week will be busy, busy!
A couple of months ago the guys from Chifre invited me to shoot a show of one of their artists. I’d never heard of Diego Armés nor had I ever listened to any of his music. I can say I was pleasantly surprised.
Sometimes I like to take my camera with me and just walk around the city, looking at things and observing people. As a photographer I like to be in the shadows. Did that sound creepy? Haha. I like it when people don’t acknowledge me and just go about their business as usual. I like spontaneity.
I’ve been researching a lot of street photography. To take what’s ordinary and make it interesting and visually pleasant, I think that’s an amazing thing to do. Of course, in my case, Lisbon helps as it is full of history and beauty.
Today was a day spent in family. Playing games (we play bingo with money, very serious business, ok?), eating a lot of scones, drinking tea and just relaxing together. I really needed a day like this, being able to disconnect from all the problems and enjoy the moment.
