Top of the hill

located at the northern side of regents park, primrose hill offers the best panoramic view of london. don’t let the mist or cold take the better, even so london skyline is extraordinary and is worthy of a little effort. this grassy hill is a special place; at some point we are able to feel an inexplicable peace and freeddom. william blake wrote about it and its engraved in a stone there – i have conversed with the spiritual sun. i saw him on primrose hill. london | december 2014

London

no man is an island, entire of itself, every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. if a clod be washed away by the sea, europe is the less. as well as if a promontory were. as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. john donne, 1624

Gold at sunset

living at “porto” for some years, both of us can’t, at least for now, imagine our life in other city.  it’s not the same as when we got here, but there’s something constant and inexplicable with the golden light at sunset that warms and welcomes us to a long stay. “miradouro da vitória” is a privileged spot to appreciate this never ending light that everyone should experience. porto | january 2015
