I have a bright post this week.
Sept 30th – Oct 6th, 2017. Those were exciting days for me. I was going to get my computer back! (See link for details.) I had renewed freedom to take photos with my camera again. You see, without a computer, I had limited storing capabilities and had to rely on my 2012 iPhone for everything. While visiting Porto, I had liberty to capture as many tile variations as I could. These sweet,
colorful tiles, or azulejos in Portuguese (and Spanish), are a dominant feature in Porto.
Plastered on buildings, decorating public spaces, adorning park benches, are interesting varieties of ceramic tiles.
Some even tell stories.
Absolutely everywhere you turn, tiles. Oh, and pedestrians. There were a few times I’d stop short – to the annoyance of anyone on my heels – get lost, or fight with my camera (glare & shadows were an issue), in order to take a photo of these tiles. I had envisioned making a photo quilt of these tiles, and now I have the time!
Below is my tile compilation. I apologize if it takes a moment to get going. Seems to have a lag in load-time going on.
