Postcards from me





When will my photos stop looking like postcards? Boring.
Anyway, nice day to be out and about.

Not boring! Beautiful! Why do you think postcards are the way they are? They pack as much beauty in a place into one place! The more beauty the better, right? Well, that’s what I say, anyway. Loved your title, too. :-)

chrispito said...

ah! love it...i wish i had a camera to take photos :(

kimananda said...

Hey, I've been there! :-) It's a beautiful area of town. I can smell the port wine from here.

Vesper de Vil said...

it's because you live in such a beautiful place!!

Devil Mood said...

MissAlister: It is a nice place but I keep going to the same places and photographing the same things. Even though it's always beautiful, it gets repetitive. ;)

Chrispito: You have half a camera or the equivalent. Perhaps you can take half pictures. No, I'm not very funny today. ;P

Kim: I should really go to the other side of the river and take pictures but I'm lazy. Over there it really smells like wine.

Vesper: lol perhaps!

Violet said...

I love Porto. I wish I'd go there more often.
You inspired me to take some pics of Lisbon today. I'll post them now.

kimananda said...

I know! But then the temptation to go taste it all is too big...and after 40 or 50 tastings, it's difficult to take clear photos. ;-)

SleekPelt said...

I definitely don't see anything boring here. Looks exciting to me!

sirbarrett said...

Take me on a vacation! I miss Lisbon!

Niall said...

Definately not boring!...your photrography is always good..(as i've said before...I think..and if I haven't..then i should have..so i am now..) you frame your subjects so well.

Devil Mood said...

Violet: hehehe glad it inspired you!

Kim: lol after 2 tastes, I'd get oozy and call a cab.

Sleekpelt: hmmm exciting, really? But everything is still! lol

Sirbarrett: Do you know Lisbon? Well, come along and you'll know Porto.

Niall: haha thanks, but it's not that difficult really.

portugueseisms?
now I've heard it all!
You know I'm a daSilva, right?
we are full of portugueseisms around here!
And your photos are amazing...keep them coming.
Adios!
xo

Devil Mood said...

Gillian: Olá! obrigada. Oh our portuguesisms follow us around, wherever we go, I'm sure ;)

SleekPelt said...

Devil Mood, I work in professional motorcycle racing and I manage two or three book deadlines a month -- that's all the real excitement I can handle! Give me a sleepy town thousands of miles away from my responsibilities any time.

Holy Chaos said...

your pictures are beautiful!

Chloe said...

what's wrong with postcards? they are like travel guides in photos. And your colours here are lovely.

Devil Mood said...

Sleekpelt: Oh now I understand! Yep, you'd be delighted to spend a lazy afternoon here in the sun, pick a Sunday and all you can hear is birds :)

Holychaos: Thanks :)

Chloe: Thanks. I guess I've sent too many postcards in my lifetime. What? No, never too many postcards...

chrispito said...

where are you? i miss you! no SS for you this week? do i sound like a mum? ha ha...oh and i just clued in to your etsy shop. CONGRATS! :)

Niall said...

You said.."it's not that difficult really"

there you go..that's what people with a talent always say!! Don't put yourself down !!

Devil Mood said...

Chrispito: haha you sound sweet, mother-earth Taurus and all that. Speaking of which, WHEN is your birthday?
I'm here but the SS prompt didn't inspire me this week.

Devil Mood said...

Niall: Oops, almost missed your comment there. It's harder to make a good picture without a great object than a bad picture with such a scenery in front of you!

chrispito said...

uh oh, you found me out, lol. it's may 7th...and this year i'l be 31! wooooot!

fb said...

What would happen if you returned to the same spot at the same time every week, then what pictures would turn up?

I'm still shaking my head at the great skill it took to head a ball at knee high into the top corner of a goal.

dharmabum said...

i like postcards. i used to be bullied by all my friends in college - coz i'd exclude them in my snaps, and they wud call me the 'postcard boy' :)

Devil Mood said...

Chrispito: Oh, you're the same age as my cousin - from 77. Nice year :)

FB: I'm pretty sure the pictures would be very, very similar. I'm afraid I don't know which goal you're talking about but I'm guessing it's Liverpool-related hehe (some things are unbelievable in football, that's why we love it)

Dharmabum: hhahahah Nice story! :) Thanks for sharing.

Aathira said...

I love your postcard pics :)
I call them wallpaper pics :)

Devil Mood said...

Aathira: Thank you :)

Miss Iyer said...

Stop calling them "boring" my friend! They are such a sight to see! You're probably looking at them everyday. We aren't! :)

Devil Mood said...

Miss Iyer: I don't get to see that everyday but everytime I go there the photos turn out the same. It's normal I guess.
