A Little Farm in a Big City

2

Once upon a time there was a small, little, tiny farm in a big, large... and really not-that-huge city. :)

Quinta Pedagógica dos Olivais is a small farm in Lisbon. I think it intends to give city folks contact with the life in the countryside, especially children. It shows city kids animals that they probably would never see otherwise and it’s a pleasant place to spend the afternoon.

The last time I went to this place I wanted to take pictures of the animals, mostly cows. In the end I didn’t pay much attention to the cow, I totally fell in love with the goats! They are so friendly and it seems that they enjoy posing!

The white horse is the star of the farm for sure. He is beautiful and fond of human contact too!

The baby pigs are very cute and I found the signs with their birth dates on the pens very sweet for some reason. :)

The donkeys were the ones that seemed more unfit to me. I’m not sure if they enjoy it as much as the others but all the animals seemed well treated. I think they are very pretty too.

It is a perfect place for children and you can see signs of them everywhere. The scarecrows are really cool and were most probably made by them.

I must confess I’m not very fond of visiting places where animals are kept in captivity but this farm looked like a good place to me. As a city person that likes animals and nature, I’m really thankful for places where I can easily go to have a bit of contact with them.

The entrance is free if you just want to visit and it is possible to arrange activities and tours. You can see more information here

    Remarkable Behind-the-Scenes Stills from Oscars Best Picture Nominees

    The Academy Award for Best Picture is certainly one of the top prestigious awards that a filmmaker can ever get in his or her entire career. Ever since it was first given in 1929, a total of 86 films have been given this award – a really huge honor, considering that this number is but a small part of the total 512 nominations.

    The Pleasure of Shooting Live Music Shows with the Petzval Lens

    There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.

    I divide people who travel to Portugal into two groups: those who prefer Porto and those who like Lisbon better. I love Porto, it's a little gem, but if I ever lived in Portugal I'd choose Lisbon in a heartbeat. It's got everything big cities have while staying beautiful and romantic and the same time.

    There’s something about New York that attracts people, something that makes both visitors from the most bucolic places and tourists from the most cosmopolitan of cities fall in love. Countless movies and television programs have been filmed in New York, and so many songs have been written in reminiscence of the place. It’s not just the Empire State Building, Times Square or Broadway; there’s something special about the streets and the people who walk on them that make spectators stop, look, and listen.

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta, was once the great capital of India back when the British ruled our country. This is my hometown, and not the place I study in.
