Sights of Portugal: Monserrate Palace & Gardens, in Sintra

Some beautiful places make me sad. Their beauty is a reminder of the beauty I may lack in my life. A reminder of a life I never had or will. A reminder that society is too busy with being practical. A reminder that any golden ages are way over and of how unequal they actually … Continue reading Sights of Portugal: Monserrate Palace & Gardens, in Sintra

Plants by the sea

Lately, I have been paying more attention to my surroundings. Going for walks in places already familiar after being away for a long time, has given those places a different mystery. It's like I'm re-reading a book with a different age. Having lived and experienced more. You always find little details you didn't see before. … Continue reading Plants by the sea

The unbearable weight of being human

Last year I spent 14 days in Mexico. I wrote about my experiences in each city I visited but I never really explained the itinerary. I decided to take some time to leave some of the most practical details here.

Without much travelling happening later, it's been hard to keep a frequent posting agenda here. I had made myself the promise that having less travelling at the start of the year wouldn't stop me from posting. Afterall I live in London and there is so many subjects to photograph in this city. And then, my … Continue reading Status: Travel planning on hold
