Hortas pedagógicas of Guimarães is a communitarian place dedicated to urban agriculture. This is a Project that started this year with the first zone available. The ecological / public park was built in agricultural land located in the entrance of the city near to the highway turning that unused space in an interesting zone.
An urban approach to agriculture is the main propose of this space where the people can rent a small plot of land to plant, making this kind of activities again available to everyone. Itt is a little difficult nowadays, only a few can still live with a good contact with nature and natural products, so it is great opportunity to do something different from your day life routine. It’s really great to see persons there in the end of a working day, some of them after being all day seated in front of computer and during that period they are enjoying themselves without any kind of stress and in the end they can take home some nice vegetables. They have all good agriculture zones. It also sas to have a lot of scarecrows, built by the users.
Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.
Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
