On the Streets...
Good afternoon, friends!
How's your week starting? I hope everything is well.
Here are some photos I took on the streets of Amarante, a medium sized city in the north of Portugal.
This first photo was taken from the street but it's private property. I put the camera (and my hands) through a gate so I could grab this shot. I'm glad there was no dog protecting the entrance. I simply loved it so much I couldn't resist taking a shot. I know it's not exactly legal... but what the heck, rules were made and meant to be broken, right? 🤫
This old building was the former Post Office but it doesn't seem to be in use right now, it looks kind of abandoned. It's a pity that such old and picturesque buildings are left empty and unused like this. Unfortunately it's a common sight in this country, many times they get neglected for such a long time they end up in ruins... 🙁
I liked the building very much but I wasn't happy with the result of the above shot. It's kind of dull, too normal and uninspiring. So I tried something else and I think it came out a lot better, even though only half of the building ended up in the photo. (That was intentional since a propaganda poster from a political party was ruining the view.)
Tell me what you think?
The last photo has an interesting detail. This was not planned nor even framed... I was holding the camera while walking and I randomly pressed the shutter, without even knowing where the camera was pointing to.
It didn't came out too bad, eh? 🤗
(Yes, of course I cropped and edited it a bit.)
I hope you liked these photos. Please leave a comment or two. Bye!
