Ferias, dia 40. The holiday is over (and a little #urbanphotography), 2 September 2022

It was time to go home. We arrived in Lisbon with plenty of time before the train was due, driving over the famous ponte 25 de Abril. I even had an opportunity for a little #urbanphotography at the Estação Oriente to grab a quick smartphone photo of a view I have had in mind forContinue reading “Ferias, dia 40.

Street photography in the only street in Fetais, 23 August 2022

A recent Twitter poll was asking about street photography, which encouraged me to get out in Fetais with the full-spectrum Lumix  and the Urth IR filter. Now, where’s that street again? http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/street-photography-in-only-street-in.html

Went a little full-spectrum crazy today, 12 August 2022

Out early in Meco this morning for some IR with the modified Lumix  and the Urth IR filter. However, I decided to dispense with the filter and just go ‘commando’. These full-spectrum shots came out really nice. I think I need to fiddle with the colour channels to get more of an ‘aerochrome’ look (andContinue reading “Went a little full-spectrum crazy today, 12 August 2022”

When a plan doesn’t quite come together, 08 August 2022

After a mixed start the sun came out and I took the chance to pop out to revisit a few places in Fetais near Meco with the full-spectrum Lumix  and the Urth IR filter. Unfortunately, as soon as I went out the clouds rolled in leaving a hazy and  cloudy day. Still, I persisted andContinue reading “When a plan doesn’t quite come together, 08 August 2022”

Lost Street Art by Dalaiama in the aldeia do Meco, 1 August 2022

Lost Street Art by Dalaiama in the aldeia do Meco, 1 August 2022 I was saddened to discover that one of my favourite pieces of street art in Meco, by the artist Dalaiama had been permanently lost following the destruction of the building on which it had been painted.

Stuck in a car park in Gaia, 20 June 2022

Waiting in a car park in Gaia. There was little else to do apart from bringing  out the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and the full spectrum Lumix DMC-TZ8 for some industrial infrared. 

A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022

Out for a lovely day in Porto with the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.  After a wet start it was perfect for some #urban and #streetphotography, or just for being a tourist.  #body, #camera, #cameras, #digital, #digitalcamera, #epl1, #mirrorless, #microfourthirds, #olympus, #olympuspen, #shittydigital, #broken, #urban, #Porto, #building, #fisheye, #kit, #lens, #lomography,Continue reading “A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022”

Concrete pipes in infrared, 3 May 2022

A couple of weeks ago I took out the the 2€ #shittydigital camera and photographed some long-abandoned concrete pipes.  The plan was to use the modified Canon A1400 for some digital infrared photographs, but the weather was not good enough for infrared photography. This morning the weather was ideal, so before our fortnightly shop IContinue reading “Concrete pipes in infrared, 3 May 2022”

Vintage Street Art in the aldeia do Meco, 26 August 2021

The aldeia do Meco is filled with some really old street art. These images are from the first wall I ever saw in Meco. On the whole the work has remained untouched, but there is a new section of wall, and I’m sure that at least one piece has been lost under the new render.Continue reading “Vintage Street Art in the aldeia do Meco, 26 August 2021”

The house on the hill, 24 August 2021

Over 20 years go someone decided to build a luxury home on the hill overlooking the road from Alfarim into Meco. Sadly, they chose to do this without the necessary permits and the council halted the work. The house, little more than a frame but a good indication of the home it could have been,Continue reading “The house on the hill, 24 August 2021”

Abandoned in Meco, 24 August 2021

This house in Meco has been abandoned for decades and is beginning to collapse. However, the ivy-covered door with its beautiful cast knocker is a joy to behold. https://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/08/abandoned-in-meco-24-august-2021.html

Vintage Street Art in the aldeia do Meco, 24 August 2021

The aldeia do Meco is filled with some really old street art. Along the boundary of the village is a wall that over the years has been used by a variety of artists. Some is an early attempt at modern Street Art typography,  other work is best described as graffiti — slogans coarsely sprayed ontoContinue reading “Vintage Street Art in the aldeia do Meco, 24 August 2021”
