I like to set myself little photographical challenges.
One thing that I really enjoy about photography, is that you can go out with a camera and see what you can see.
But another way, is that you can go out with a very clear idea of what you want, you can go out with an idea and exclude all else to focus on obtaining that idea
For me, a good way to do this, is to set myself a themed project. Think of it as commissioning yourself for work.
So for this post, I’ll be linking directly to images on my Flickr Account. Clicking them will take you to full size versions.
I’m lucky. I currently get to spend about 6 months a year living in Portugal. I have to say that this can lead to some good natured envy from my family and friends back home. Who assume I spend my idyllic days, basking in the sunshine.
Well OK, summer is pretty special!
But it can be quite isolating being away from family and friends and I don’t speak Portuguese… Every life has some daily grind, that doesn’t stop just because the sun is shining.
Once the summer season is over, things take on a different vibe. The tourists depart, things slow down and the place gets emptier.
The heat and playful breeze has dissipated and winter looms from the Atlantic.
