Portugal 2

Box of ink stamps bought for the boys, Interior Photographer, Lifestyle Photographer and Advertising Photographer in London

a well deserved day off today, week two is in the bag and it’s Sunday, the sun has rejoined us and next week is looking easier weather wise not having to battle with clouds mornings and afternoons, we have had some dappled light but only fleeting glances to keep teasing us, well hopefully the forecast is reliable and we get some better days coming up. Aside from domestic tasks like a super market run & laundry, today some of the team have been to the local market @ Quatrim, which seemed to be half local produce and half car boot.  Now all that know me will know that car boot sales don’t normally float my boat, but it was curious to see that the type of stuff you find here is about the same as the stuff you find at any boot sale where ever you are, but we always hope to find some gems, and today I did.  The beautifully aged box photographed above & in it’s interior  it contains ink stamps that I have bought for the boys, the guy who was selling them said that Portuguese schools used to use them in lessons, I am sure the boys will love them. Ones lots of different types of boats and ships in one, the other is different types of traditional buildings from other cultures from around the world, more stories for the Algarve soon…………

About half way through week 2 of our five week Portugal shoot, I snapped these in one of our garden locations when we had just finished shooting for the day. With week one under our belt, with fantastic teamwork, lots of sun, great locations courtesy of Shoot Portugal which has resulted in beautiful images which our client is really happy with, it couldn’t be better, unless of course I could have Jo and the boys with me which would be the icing on the cake, but as we all know you can seldom have it all, but looking forward to the first days off to get the opportunity to do some exploring. I have been to the Algarve many times but never had the time to wander about to get a proper feel for Portugal, so wonderful to be here out of season when you can get a real feel for the place & the people, more soon……..
