I really enjoy leaving home with the camera. Even if for a simple stroll around the city.
The unexpected does tend to take place. A couple of shots came out that I’ll be adding to my deFocuseD series.

Some say “home is where your heart is”. What if one’s heart is in many places?
I lived in a few cities and with every move my sense of belonging changes. It mutates. The emotional sense of locational exclusivity that tends to be attached to the word “home” is reduced further. My heart is in so many places that I do ask myself repeatedly: Where is home?
Still, the places that saw me grow still feel pretty special (not to say they are indeed stunning).
Setúbal, Portugal. City where I was raised. Where the Sado river meets the Atlantic ocean. Sunset pic.
Palmela. Neighbor city right next to Setúbal. Great wines. Beautiful castle.
The Palmela castle. I could walk around that castle for hours.
The Palmela castle offers one of the best views of Setúbal. Sunsets are magical.
Lisbon. City where I was born. My favorite city to eat and shop.
The Expo area (now called “Parque das nações”). Great place to grab a meal, go for a nice walk…
I’d like to be able to predict where life will take me next. What’s the next city I’ll be calling home. But I can’t, and that’s just fine. My origins are and will always remain, the same.

Street photography in Cologne, Germany. One of my favorite cities to shoot.
Lights will guide you there…
Carnival celebrations (Cologne 2013):
After a reasonable amount of back and forth I finally decided to ditch WIndows and move to Mountain Lion (Macbook Pro). Best decision ever!!!! Amazing machine. Don’t know why I’ve been wasting my time, money and effort with MS stuff. Now things just work!! No more forced shutdowns! Goodbye Windows! Au revoir!
