Rua do Corpo da Guarda
(The Encounter)

Trivia (XIX)

Or why do these things happen to me.

I'm a fan of your work but that's not why i'm writing you.
In my website log I noticed the following link to your site: _____________________________
I've folowed the link and I think this particular link has given me access to your website admin dashboard. To prove this I've even included a period (.) in your contacts, after your skype address. You must see this quickly, as it is a serious security problem.

thanks groucho, I appreciate it.  The whole site needs to be reworked. Well, in anycase, I am glad I discovered your blog. Very nice.  Thanks for your help. I let my designer know about it...

Trivia (XVIII)

It seems my Facebook account has been disabled for breaking its Terms of Use.
Well, that's OK I think. Facebook has always seemed a bit kitsch to me.

And no, I don't have any questions or concerns...

Trivia (XVII)


I am journalist of _________ and I would like to talk with you about your blogue Porto Street Shooting. The idea is to make an article about foreign people that live in Porto. Can I send you some questions? It’s better do this in english, right? We would like to publish some of your photos, too. Thanks,


Lamento desiludir mas sou português... eh eh eh

Street Shooters (V)

This is Maria Manuel Moreira, one of my favorite street photographers, from Porto, Portugal.

She's an amazing street photographer. Check her portfolio here and her facebook page here.

She's also the proof that gear doesn't really count. I would love to go on a photowalk with her sometime.

(The Grocer)

The Grocer by portostreetshooting

"To be frank... When I first came here 42 years ago; here to this house... every day, day in and day out my daughter would go to the market - at Corujeira, the fruit market. 
My daughter would go there... day in and day out, to buy fruits and vegetables, fruits and vegetables, fruits and vegetables..."

(The Café Regulars)

The Cafe Regulars by portostreetshooting

"I go to Spain, I go to the Algarve, huh ...
and I get the beer cheaper.
And in the Algarve the beer is cheaper than here...
And the expressos and shit... 
When I was in sales in the Algarve, many years, 
Fuck... An expresso and half a whiskey was...
It wasn't euros yet.
It was one escudo and twenty,
one escudo and twenty."
