Urban Photoessay: #43 “Abstract Porto (part one)”

Hello all! My newest blogpost, the first blogpost of 2018, is a photogallery about how I captured Porto in more abstract way. Before 2 years, I photographed every statue, every church where I’ve been and seen. I realized, that it’s not about photography, it’s just about memory. What isn’t bad though:). Strolling through the streets, notice the contrasts. Lines. Shadows. Curves. Where the old meets the new. Which one is your favorite?

  1. Hey Stef, I do have a favorite pick this time: 4th from the bottom, the stairways/railings with the strong shadows. Ok also the people sitting at the round, empty counter, with the round lights overhead, looks like a waiting area for an alien abduction. And 3rd, the people walking along the terrace, with the stone retaining wall bisecting the shot so neatly, and dividing it between the upper town and lower.
    I like the other shots, too. A great album to kick off the year

  2. My favorite is the sea wall, but I am struck by the first photo. I had a strong memory of seeing that first blue tiled building in Porto. I remember thinking it looked half finished……The sea wall though, makes me want to walk out on it.

  3. Oh I like the ones with strong slanting shadows in them – they are the sort of compositions I like to paint. I also like the first one for the reflections and pattern on the tiles. Thank you.
