Royal Princess, one photo with a lot of photos



I made this photo on board the cruise ship Royal Princess, when Saturday was the first time in Madeira. This was one of the many photos I registered. By far, it seemed to me an image with additional work, beyond a simple picture, because there were signs of human intervention. And, as I approached I noticed that the big picture is the sum of thousands of small pictures carefully placed to give the desired effect.


Fiz a fotografia principal (de cima) a bordo do navio de cruzeiros Royal Princess, quando esteve sábado na Madeira pela primeira vez. Esta foi uma das muitas fotos que registei. Ao longe, pareceu-me uma imagem com trabalho suplementar, além de uma simples fotografia, porque havia sinais de intervenção humana. E, ao aproximar-me verifiquei que a grande foto é o resultado da soma de milhares de pequenas fotografias criteriosamente colocadas para dar o efeito desejado, conforme se pode verificar nestas duas fotos.

without bunganvilas in the wall



For many years, that wall has bunganvilas. But a few weeks ago they decided to cut and now we can see a panel of blue and white tiles.

~~

Durante muitos anos, a parede teve bunganvilas. Mas, há umas semanas decidiram cortar. E deixou à vista um painel de azulejos azuis e brancos.
