A Window in Porto


Porto, January 4, 2017 - I spent the first few days of the new year in Porto, Portugal. It was a brief but captivating visit, and my first time in Portugal. As someone who tends to let my eyes do the walking, it was a great place to lose myself with my camera. I captured this photo on my last day there, as we were heading to the car. Normally, I'm relatively polite in sneaking a photo of a person—not in there sight, at a safe distance. But this woman was standing at her window so perfectly, even cinematically, posed, while staring me down through the lens. For me, this was just one more example of the obliging Portuguese spirit I had come to know in a very short period.
