Street Art in Porto

I just wanted to let you know that as of today, I’m officially on vacations with my family.  I have scheduled some posts, so that the blog keeps breathing…and if time allows, I will drop by to read some posts or chat with you.

If you won’t hear from me, remember that I haven’t forgotten you!

The Photo Rehab Clinic and its features keep running as usual.

My great friend Desley, from Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist will be with you running the Cover Makeover, the new feature of the Photo Rehab. I am looking forward to seeing all ideas you came up with.

If are going on holidays, have a great time.

Till soon and best wishes!

I am posting today some photos of street art from Porto in Portugal. They, of course, go to the  Photo Rehab, a community to share photos, learn from each other and connect.

Here is my gallery.

 

In December 2014, after completing the Photo101 course, I opened the Photo Rehab Event in this blog, a ‘healing clinic’, for all of us who love photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters and enthusiasts) who missed the course and daily interaction with other photobloggers.

I am always inspired by the photos shared within our community of photobloggers, and for that I want to share my enthusiasm with you.


You can visit all other photos of all patients here: Photo Rehab

HOW TO JOIN THE PHOTO REHAB

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Trigger Happy, come and join us: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

How does it work:

  1. Shoot a photo.
  2. Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to Pingback to this post and to use the tag #PhotoRehab so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
  3. Add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and the audience of the Photo Rehab.
  4. Here is the link to add your photos. Knock the wall of the Clinic… and click on the image below:

  1. Lucile! How I love the street art you’ve chosen for this post…So colorful and summery!
    On that note, I wish you a very enjoyable, relaxing and fun vacation! I look forward to seeing the Cover Makeover that Desley will run while you’re on vacation.
    Take care and Bon Voyage!
    *Lia

  2. Wow street art that is actually art on the street! Are those canvases laid out to see? I was expecting graffiti on walls! Great photos, they are so crisp and vibrant.
    Happy holidays to you and your beautiful family x.

    • Actually it’s not canvases. These are old metal boxes used by the local telecommunications company. Someone just made them more attractive and less invasive in a pedestrian street. I guess they may be still active.
      Thank you my friend! Also for running the Cover Makeover!
      Xx

  3. The Portuguese street art is awesome, Lucile. Reminds me of the paintings and street art on the
    Traffic light signal boxes I featured this month on my blog. Have a great holiday! Enjoy and I look forward to your return.

    • Thank you for the comments and good wishes for my vacations! It worked and I had a great one.
      Sorry for the late reply. I am finishing the reply to all earlier comments made during vacations.

    • Anna, I have looked at all old comments and this was the last one from you. There was no message on the spam inbox either. I really don’t know what happened. I shall ask WordPress Happy Engineer.

  4. Tear…more tear drops 😦 I’ll miss you.
    No way!
    Go and have quality joor (that is Naija parlance for ‘please’ actually Yoruba). Enjoy yourself. Hugs and ❤

      • Now you want me to shed tears after the sadness has rolled away a month ago! hahahahha…so very funny (like King Earl would say).
        I’m glad it was a fruitful journey and you are back. Big hugs. ❤

  5. Really punchy images! How do people think of these things? And how lucky for us that you came along with the camera 🙂 I think the first is my favourite. Like Sally, I hope you’ll be cyber-less and just enjoy your family time. See you soon! 🙂

  6. the photos are indeed vibrant and wonderful. makes me wish i were there though i’m doing a lot of that right now in general. i also really enjoyed the layout you’ve done for all the ‘patients.’ it’s a simple and elegant way to showcase everyone else’s blogs. makes me wish i took better pictures 😉

    cheers and godspeed!

What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
