Here you can find work in progress, Holga photos, travel photos, snaps from around town and, occasionally, ones from the file boxes that have never found a spot to call home. The nice thing about a blog is that I can show you new work in a less formal fashion than on my web page. I post on a regular basis, so check back. You can follow me on Instagram @ jonnycakes7
Coimbra is a university town with a beautiful historic center.
University students selling pencils to fundraise for graduation expenses. The university is the most prestigious in Portugal.
Like I said, it’s a university town! The Universidade de Coimbra was the first in Portugal and one of the first in Europe.
Olive and Alice explore the narrow lanes of the old town.
The beach just outside town.
We arrived after dark. In the morning this was the scene just outside our door.
Old, colorful buildings.
People walking to work along the Rio Douro. It was so unhurried, calm and serene. Porto!
Olive and Cooper walk along the Rio Douro in Porto, Portugal. Porto is one of the most picturesque cities I’ve ever visited. Everywhere you look there’s a view. This photo was made with a plastic camera on film!
When walking in Madrid keep your eyes peeled. The walls hold hidden treasures.
If you walk too fast or your head is down, you might overlook a gem like this one.
Like the corner store, street art is an integral part of the neighborhoods.
Sometimes it’s creative, other times it’s a happy accident. Nothing is sacred. All public space is subject to modification.
It’s always fun to try to catch the feel of the street. So called grab shots!
Inside out! (photographed in a mirror, looking out a door)
Casa de Campo is Madrid’s largest park and one of largest in Europe. On Sunday Madrilenos flock to the park. Joggers, families, bicyclists, picnickers all make use of this great urban park! In the background you can catch a glimpse of the Royal Palace and the Catedral de Nuestra Señora de La Almudena.
Parque del Retiro, a 17th century royal retreat and a fantastic urban park!
In the beginning…..
