Oporto, Portugal Travel Photography

Oporto

Late last year we drove up north to Oporto to shoot a wedding and the night before we took a wander through the old part of town and along the banks of the Douro. I don’t know this city very well but it has stolen a little bit of my heart and I intend to visit again many times…

Terceira Island, Azores

Terceira Island, Azores

A belated Happy New Year, lovely people! 2013 is here, in full force… and the internet is full of people looking back, people looking forward… there’s something about this time of year that does that to you. So I’m not entirely jumping on the “retrospective” band wagon with this one, although these photos were taken may months ago and have been waiting patiently for me to do something with them. And I’m also not going to make any promises/resolutions about blogging more frequently, because I did that last year and look how far that got me! So. The Azores!! Terceira…

Portugal roadtrip Day 3 – Praia do Malhão to Sagres

If you haven’t already, then you may want to read Day 1 and Day 2 first… Day 3 took us from Praia do Malhão down to Sagres, the south-western corner of Portugal and the end of our trip. We meandered along, stopping for a while in Vila Nova de Milfontes, Zambujeira do Mar and Carrapateira and while on the last stretch of road before reaching our campsite we saw a cute sign for a little village called Aldeia da Pedralva… so we decided to take a detour. A detour that turned into a caipirinha and then another… and then dinner……

Costa Vicentina, Portugal

Portugal roadtrip Day 2 – Costa Vicentina: Praia da Galé to Praia do Malhão.

Day 2 of our all-girls Portugal road trip… you can find Day 1 here. We spent the night at the campsite at Praia da Galé… which is probably one of my favourites in Portugal. It’s close to the beach, it’s dog friendly, it has loads of trees for shade and it doesn’t suffer quite so much from that horrible delineated-campsite-syndrome that most 1st world country campsites are afflicted by. They actually have an area where you can just pretty much put your tent wherever you want, which is exactly what we did. The following day consisted of an early morning…

Kerry and Tara’s Portugal roadtrip – Day 1 – Ericeira to Praia da Galé.

It seems like another lifetime ago, but really it was only a few months back, in August, that one of my closest friends came over from the UK for a week. Tara and I haven’t been friends since we were little kids, we were both almost finished with university when we first met, and since then we have spent more time on opposite sides of the world than actually being in Cape Town at the same time… me on ships for 5 years and then in Portugal, Tara moving between Germany, Cape Town and now Brighton… and yet in spite…

Still alive, promise!

Oh my sweet little blog, how I miss you! And I have things to share, I promise… I just don’t have time right now to get stuck into personal images. But it’s not to say that this is a bad thing! We’re crazy busy, but it’s a good busy… a fulfilling and exciting busy. One of my bestest-friends-ever came over for a week to visit and we went on a road trip, as we do when we get together (you can see the second last one here). Plus we also got to go to Terceira Island in the Azores recently,…

Rain

We’re not even halfway through the year and I am already failing miserably in my intentions to post here more regularly… it’s a sad truth that I still have photos from South Africa that haven’t even been edited yet, nevermind blogged… Anyway, maybe I’ll get to them one day, but for now, here are some rainy photos, because good grief, we haven’t had quite enough rain recently! Luckily our clients are of the very bravest kind and in spite of the miserable weather since we got back to Portugal (3 rainy weddings and several other shoots) they have all been…
