AFTER THE FOG
Lisbon, once again. As much as I photograph in Lisbon I will never repeat myself even if I pass and go through the same places as I have done over time, with and without a camera. That Baixa de Lisbon never ceases to amaze me with its texture by the corridors between buildings we call streets, squares, and other things that exist there.
The morning, early as arranged, surprised me as soon as I arrived at Rossio. Fog, not much too thick but enough to save the film production some euros with mists, made on request. For this wedding photographer lover of clear and transparent light could have been a disappointment if it were not, at the same time, my sense of challenge for what is there, as always normal on wedding days. And there I have a gentle Lisbon with gentle light street backgrounds touching softness with transparent silk environments.
So we walk, Patricia, Ricardo, and I for which Pombal conceived thinking about photographers at any time and fervor in the eyes. At Rossio we began, the empty Augusta street with no people, and with the awakening of the terraces preparing for the day that will come soon, the offered of their walls, where this morning fog light purrs through the notches of the windows and doors coming to my lenses as an order, guessed by experienced scenographer to serve their customers well.
Sé and Castelo served as a tour with smells of beautiful flowers, castle battlements without warriors, but of lovers capable of swear, like those of the Knights, to their maidens of old days: forever.
What was here stayed here and it shows how everything, that was written above, was true. However, the photos always have a very way of speaking to those who see them, and who see them with their own eyes. I hope Patricia and Ricardo, with them, will come to tell… one day. It is the desire of the wedding photographer.
