hello there friends, how are you doing? did you have a great weekend? enjoyed the weather and did something cool? well, i cannot say that i enjoyed the weather that much because it was gloomy all weekend, rained a bit here and there, and was actually cold sometimes. i’m really on a spring mode here, so cold temperatures are not the favourite thing for me right now! but well, saturday i went on a mission on the west coast of this country, in search of some blooming trees my brother-in-law had told me about, but instead of those i ended up going to obidos again and entertain myself with both digital and lomo cameras, two lenses for the digital and snapped away like crazy, delighted with the light and the flowers! last time i was here for a photo session it was in august and things were so different! it amazes me to visit some locations on different times of the year, because these locations will show different moods! it’s amazing!
first i stopped by the train station which got me all thrilled because this is an old train station and little or nothing at all was changed over the years. so out of a sudden it seemed that i was on another country or century. priceless… i can see a fabulous photo session taking place here! hello dear potential clients, care to join me on this adventure?
and then came the wisteria heaven… these are probably my favourite flowers. they smell like heaven, their colour is amazingly beautiful and pure delight to capture. i just want to be shooting them from every possible point of view.
you may recognize this beauty here above from one of my well-known prints! this bike stands outside a shop and was formely painted in neon pink and now has this white cover with a twist of green! i always love the way they place scarves and flowers… and how about this idea below? isn’t this teapot just gorgeous?
i think that óbidos is one of those places that can never disappoint me! it’s always gorgeous and magical, a little bit like sintra. and the curious thing is that i happened to go there on slightly rainy days, with all the light grey clouds above, always threatening to start raining and what i end up is with a glorious light, no rain and a bunch of beautiful photos on my memory card. i drive back home with a smile on my face!
and just like that i had spent 3 hours in obidos wandering on the narrow streets of the village inside the castle, forgetting that there is a world outside. and this is how i feel when i’m shooting… and i think that this is how i know this love is for real!
