Located in Porto, Portugal, the Dom Luis I Bridge is one of the most beautiful bridges I’ve ever seen.
The Dom Luis I Bridge is located in Porto, Portugal. The bridge links Porto with Vila Nova de Gaia over the Douro River and it is an “ex libris” of the city of Porto.
This bridge was engineered by the disciple of Gustave Eiffel, Téophile Seyrig and the similarities between this bridge and the Eiffel Tower are obvious. It was opened on 31 October 1886. It is a two-hinged double-deck arch bridge with a total length of 1.263.9 ft by 146 ft height and it weighs 3.045 tons. This massive iron beauty is very impressive and I can’t get tired of shooting it every time I visit Porto. It is as beautiful by day as it is by night and you can see an amazing view over Ribeira and Porto wine cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia.
This is definitely one of Portugal’s landmarks and I think it fits perfectly the Porto identity, a bridge that is rough and impressive as it is beautiful.
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.
The Algarve region in the south of Portugal attracts tourists from all over Europe all year round. But what most people (luckily) don't know is that there is still a great unexplored part of the coast in Algarve, away from the masses and the cities. Come and see the Costa Vicentina, a diamond on Portugal's southwest coast.
How about letting bricks and stones fly in front of you? Pick your favorite pattern, the prettiest wall you can find or the most complicated lines you've ever seen on a building, grab the Oktomat and start shooting!

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.
