Photos from Portugal

Photos from Portugal

Sorry for the lack of activity, but I was on vacation. I managed to get some nice photos in Portugal and they are all available on Flickr. Since it is not my first time there, this time I decided to explore locations apart from the big cities.

Here are the 10 locations I visited. Click on the images below for the full album. All photos were taken with a Fuji X-E1 and a Fuji 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 lens.

Enjoy!

Lisboa

My way in and out Portugal this time. I used the capital as a base to visit Mafra, Sintra and Óbidos.

Mafra

Home of the impressive National Palace.

Sintra

My second time here. This time I went to the Quinta da Regaleira / Monserrate circuit, with a stop for lunch at the Seteais Palace.

Coimbra

Home of Portugal’s most famous university.

Conímbriga

Well-preserved Roman ruins near Coimbra.

Porto

Used the city as a base to visit Braga and Guimarães.

Braga

Nice city with a lot of churches to visit, including the impressive Bom Jesus do Monte.

Guimarães

Castle and palace visits.

Aveiro

Beautiful city with plenty of canals. “Portuguese Venice” is an overstatement, though.

Óbidos

Interesting medieval walled city.

Photography: Fall in New York

Central Park Pond and Gapstow Bridge

2015 was a slow year in photography for me, but I managed to get some shots during the trips I did. Here are some taken in New York in November, when I went to the city to follow the Beethoven series by the Berliner Philharmoniker at Carnegie Hall.

All of these were taken using a Fuji X-E1 camera with a 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS lens.

Sainte-Chapelle

I have just got back from a quick trip to France and Belgium and brought some photos with me. I traveled with my good old Fuji X-E1 and got some snapshots of Paris and Brussels.

Evernote Triangle Commuter Bag Review

Evernote Triangle Commuter Bag

I have always been a fan of messenger bags. They are better than backpacks because it is much easier to access your stuff inside. And the smaller footprint means it is easier to carry around at airports and in airplanes.

When Evernote first announced this product, I immediately thought: I have to have this! Especially after I saw the Evernote Triangle Commuter Bag featured on Wired

magazine and realized how versatile it was.

I have been using one of these bags for the past 4 months, so now I can give you a proper impression on how it is like to live with it every day.
