Marisa by the river

Has to be my favourite photo from my last roll 🙂

Film still kicking

Still some frames missing from the full roll, but it does look nice. Exposure is for the selected photo, that’s why others may look dark, or too bright.


Film is Ilford FP4 Plus 125, developed with X-Tol stock for 8 minutes + 5 minutes Ilford fixing.

Life from MMS

I haven’t been updating this, but I have been taking some MMS to send to my sweetheart Marisa throughout the day, so I thought, why not share. It’s crapy, boring, but it’s a post! Do not have fun with this.

Introducing Love

This is sort of an intrusion to this blog by the sweetest girl in André’s fascinating life. Yeah, me. MARISA


YAY 4 me!! 🙂 Here I am… yup, this is me. You should know by now that André couldn’t resist not having me by his side any longer (even in here 😆 ). He sort of kindly asked me to join him and as a cool girlfriend, that I actually am (very important notice), I couldn’t refuse it. Well, you might have seen me in the previous post and some others (few of them) where I appear as a B-e-A-u-T-i-F-u-L model or where I appear as the lady of his heart and as the reason why he breathes (that would be… well, ME in every post since the very beginning 🙄 what can I do? He simply adores me!). Read more…

flickr updates

Gare do Oriente, originally uploaded by a_lemos.

Just uploaded some new photos to my flickr account, so drop by 🙂

I like this one in particular, because you’d expect to see lots of movement in a set like this. But no one is to be seen, and the film/lens combo really shine here.

I have also enjoyed this one a lot:

Marisa @ Pizza Hut :D

I really captured the look “what the hell am I going to eat”? 🙂

Great model btw

Ps.: Milupa is over 🙁

Life sucks

and then you… well… nothing. really.

Nothing is ever what you expect. Plans get flushed. Hobbies are rendered grey. People change. YOU change. sacrifices are made. you laugh. you cry.

Idle hands are the devil’s playthings. really. do not cling to your mobile phone.

in an age of a very small global village, the butterfly effect is massive. a word, a status changes lives. your life. my life. choices are easier to make.

in the end, what have you accomplished? really? How will it all end? You’ll only have two possible outcomes. Alone, or meaningful to someone.

you root for your team. you watch girls in their bikini while on the beach, even though they’ll never mean anything to you. you live.

what is life really, but a sum of decisions, with a perspective of a piss poor outcome?

choices make up for your journey, and lead you to different outcomes. I have made my share of decisions based on what I expected from life.

do I regret any? hell no! do I regret some of their outcomes? yes. why? well… quite frankly, just like we are the sum of our experiences, decisions are the sum of these experiences. these experiences let us look into the future and foresee what our life would be.

so yes. life sucks. just be sure to make the correct decisions so you can live by.

All the content in this post took place on the 11th of the current month 🙂

I woke up in Lisbon on that day, on Marisa’s house. We woke up pretty soon, so that we could still go to my house in Coimbra, so I could dress up, and then we would head to the marriage location.

The following video was shot in my bedroom.


Yes, it has a very crappy quality, but that “video camera” was an offer (e.g. free), so… We can’t really expect much. That’s my mom and Marisa on the video, btw 😀

Now, I am going to post 31 photos from the marriage, the film used was:

  • Ilford FP4 Plus 120
  • Ilford Delta 400

both shot with a Zeiss Ikon ZM, with a 35mm f1.4 SC Nokton, developed with Xtol Stock, and scanned with an epson v700.

I must warn you, that it was my first venue with the lens/camera combo, so everything might not be perfect.

Oh, and another heads up. If you like some of the photos, let me know, so I can send you the 16 bits TIF gray versions of them. The quality is so much better, it’s haunting! In the mean time, I’ll try a better way to get them from tifs to jpegs.

I also need to calibrate my monitor. TFTs suck, and photos might be too dark.

The photos are posted after the following jump, so that the blogs’ main page does not get too crowded.

I am ready!

Now I can say I am ready for Nuno‘s and littleNes‘ wedding on Sunday!

Hot date: CHECK! My Marisa Duque!

Cameras: CHECK!

  • Zeiss Ikon ZM with a Nokton 35 f1.4
  • Yashica GTN with a Yashinon 40 f1.7

Film: CHECK!

  • Ilford Delta 400
  • Ilford FP4 Plus 125
  • Fujicolor 100 (to waste before the wedding to make sure everything is working properly)

Don’t know if I will load each camera with it’s own film, or use only the Zeiss, and load Yashica with something else, and perhaps convince Marisa to take some shots 🙂

And now for the pics for the GAS attack MUAHAHAH

ImageShack ImageShack

Oh, btw, the lens on the Zeiss is the nokton 35mm f1.4. You know why rangefinder rocks? It weights 200 grams, and has a length of 28,5mm.

A canon ef 35mm f1.4 weights 580 grams has a length of 86mm.

How much more stealth can you be? 😉

Tourist in Lisbon


On Saturday Marisa took me for a great walk through the Lisbon centre. The idea was to visit the Castle of São Jorge, which we did, and I had a really great time! The view from up there is really cool.

I am insanely tired, so I am not typing much text, at least not on this entry.

I’ve developed the following photos with Xtol, stock dilution for 5m:30s. The film is Ilford Delta 400.
