"Gift" Ponta de São Lourenço, Madeira Island Reaching impossible heights, the buildings of Nature rise persistently, challenging the strength of the elements, conquering space to the ocean, in a tough battle of magma and fire.
We are privileged inhabitants of this absolutely incredible and unlikely place, which not only accepts with bravery the constant struggle of harboring its offspring, but is also still capable of offering us priceless sensations and visions, day after day...
This is without any doubt my favorite spot in Madeira Island, along with the Ribeira da Janela Beach. I had been dreaming for long to photograph this place, and naively thought this would be an easily accessible spot, located near the parking spot which leads to the Ponta de São Lourenço trail.
On my first scouting attempt during the afternoon, I searched the place and immediately assumed I had found the exact spot from where this famous image would be possible. After walking part of the main trail, I found a smaller rough path on the steep incline, that seemed to lead there. Well, after all these years I should have already learned that things are never too easy in landscape photography, so I soon found out that the supposed place was not the right place I was looking for, and I probably needed to go to all the way to the top of the hill, where a geodesic landmark was located. I started climbing once again, but was far from imagining that the trail would soon be almost invisible, with some climbing areas way beyond my comfort zone. (Story continued on the first comment) 😊

1 – Porto

In Portugal’s second city, you’re only ever a few minutes away from the ocean. Vibrant Porto is a city full of colour, and whether it’s the azulejos (hand-painted tiles) that decorate the metro, the Museu de Arte Contemporânea or the street art you’ll find on every corner, art is everywhere in Porto.
2 – The Casa Pasteis De Belem

There’s no Portuguese treat more iconic than the custard tart. This tiny bakery in Lisbon has been serving up these delicious baked goods for more than 150 years! Best enjoyed straight out of the oven, still warm, and sprinkled with cinnamon and powdered sugar.
3 – Evora

A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1986, Evora’s roots date back to the Roman times. Built in the first century, the Roman Temple of Evora was constructed in honour of Augustus. It’s now the best-preserved Roman structure on the Iberian Peninsula.
4 – Nazare

This historic fishing town has some incredible beaches. Nazare is famous as the home of big wave surfing in Portugal, as well as for its unbelievably yummy fresh local fare including seafood caught just off the coast.
5 – Lisbon
📷 by @maitetrafalgartd
The Portuguese capital has the same unique flair as the rest of this beautiful country. With a thriving night life scene, you can find everything from upscale wine and cocktail bars, to traditional fado houses and trendy clubs nestled on Lisbon’s narrow cobbled lanes.

Sobre essa sessão fotográfica que fiz com Doutora Mônica, só tenho isso a dizer:
“A fotografia, antes de tudo é um testemunho. Quando eu aponto a câmara para alguma pessoa, constrói-se um significado, faz-se uma escolha, seleciona-se um tema e conta-se uma história, cabe a vocês, espectadores, o imenso desafio de lê-las”.
Frase de ANSEL ADAMS, adaptadar por mim. 🙂😊👍

Estamos na minha estação do ano preferida: o verão! ☀️
Nada como sentir os raios solares baterem no rosto, no corpo, sentir o calor (as vezes até exagerado), ver as cores mais brilhantes, poder ir à praia!
Coisas normais e possíveis o ano inteiro na cidade onde nasci, no Brasil, e que aqui, em Portugal, se tornou algo desejado durante o resto do ano, apesar de gostar de passar por todas as estações, umas mais do que outras!
Você tem uma estação preferida? Qual a sua?

we are reaching another end of the week and we want to drop a special moment to all the beautiful people who send us daily messages sharing things about their life: happiness doesn't have to be about having everything you want, it can be about the little moments and small pleasures. watching a sunset in your favourite place, having courage to face your fears, hugging that person that you haven't seen for years even if things are a little different now. maybe life is about enjoying the present moment, looking for the sun in the darkest moments and leaving in peace when it's time to leave.. leaving with a warm heart knowing that you had the life of your dreams, you didn't worry too much about the big things because you always knew that the small things were the ones that really touched you.. maybe life is about all the things you don't even notice, so when it's time to leave, it feels as if you're still here🌙
PT: estamos a chegar a mais um final de semana e a todos aqueles que entram em contacto connosco diariamente a desabafar sobre a sua vida, queremos deixar-vos uma mensagem especial: a felicidade não tem de ser sobre ter tudo o que tu queres ter, pode ser sobre os pequenos momentos e os pequenos prazeres. ver um pôr do sol no teu lugar favorito, ter coragem de enfrentar os teus medos, abraçar aquela pessoa que não vês há anos, mesmo que as coisas estejam um pouco diferentes agora. talvez a vida seja sobre aproveitar o momento presente, procurar o sol nos momentos mais escuros e sair em paz quando for a hora de partir.. partir com um coração quente sabendo que viveste a vida dos teus sonhos, que não te preocupaste muito sobre as grandes coisas porque sempre soubeste que as pequenas coisas eram as que realmente te tocavam.. talvez a vida seja sobre todas as coisas que nem valorizamos, para que quando chegue a hora de partir, consigas partir como se ainda aqui estivesses🌙
