lisboa via au pays des merveilles

It’s been almost a week since I’ve left my beloved Lisbon and moved back to Leuven, but I’m still missing my home away from home.  This beautiful city and the wonderful people I’ve met there have found a place in my heart and will never be forgotten.  I’m trying to get used to my daily life in Belgium again, but I’m not letting go of Lisbon just yet.  During my last weeks in Lisbon, I have made sure to photograph all my favorite places so I can put together a real ‘au pays des merveilles’ Lisbon guide for you.  So in the next few weeks you can expect a lot of posts about charming cafés and cool bars, which will be concluded with a little overview so you can easily find what you are looking for if you would make a trip to this amazing city.  However, I didn’t spent all my time in Lisbon these last weeks, I also made a short roadtrip with some friends to Peniche, Fatima, Coimbra and Porto.  The photos from this trip are being developed as we speak, so you can expect those too once I’ve gotten around scanning them.

For now, I leave you with these photos of my neighborhood and the view from my room on the Tagus river.  A lot of you have been asking which cameras I use, so the first two ones are made with a nikon F-801S, a nikon 35-70mm f/2.8 D lens and regular 200 iso film, the last two with a diana camera, I don’t remember which kind of film, but the orange and pink light spots are a result of the film being rolled up too loose. These two and my canon eos 450 d (including a canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens and a canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens) are the only ones I’ve been using in Lisbon.
