Mer Girl

I ran from my house that cannot contain me
From the man that I cannot keep
From my mother who haunts me, even though she’s gone
From my daughter that never sleeps
I ran from the noise and the silence
From the traffic on the streets

Madonna – Mer Girl

Hoje fiz algo que penso nunca fiz na minha vida. Correr por correr. Sem ser numa aula de educação física, no ginásio, ou enquanto jogo futebol. O primeiro mapa é a ida, e o segundo a volta.

A volta já me custou um bocadito mais, mas fica aqui na mesma, sem vergonha nenhuma! 🙂

Gosto sempre de associar uma música a tudo o que faço, e a escolhida foi a música acima. Fica aqui a mesma para que possam sentir o mesmo:

First macro test

Me and Marisa are more and more happy about the Sanyo VPC HD2000. Below you’ll find a video I shot this morning just to check its macro capabilities, which apparently aren’t that bad.

Going through the motions with this camera has made me realize that I haven’t had the time lately to enjoy the fine photographic equipment I have, mainly the enlarger, and the fine lenses for the Zeiss. I can only wish I get the time and opportunity to enjoy all of this, as well as this video camera.

The holidays season is approaching at a fast pace, so I can only hope I get to enjoy my hobbies to the fullest with Marisa.

On other news, some professional changes may happen during this next week. We’ll see. I promise I’ll try to keep you posted.

Habemos ampliador! (revisited)

Hi gang!

Since my birthday is [fergcorp_cdt_single date=”Sun, 01 Mar 2009 00:00:00 +000″], I’ve decided to take a few days off.

What better way to spend the morning of a lazy ass day, than to set up the enlarger I’ve bought recently? 🙂

My really issue was to get a table on my attic so I could put the enlarger, and other enlarging related stuff. There was this table, but it was too small. Luckily, when I got there, I’ve found a door, that would do just fine!

pretty neat! I even got the bonus of having a tap! Now, I only need the following items to start enlarging (let me remind you that my birthday is [fergcorp_cdt_single date=”Sun, 01 Mar 2009 00:00:00 +000″]):

and I am set to GO!

you can buy all of these at fnac.pt, colorfoto.pt or ebay! And yes, these are all very cheap items! (fnac for instance sells every single item on that list, I just couldn’t find them all on their website, same probably goes for colorfoto)

So don’t be coy, and bring your friend some joy! (what?!)

Skiing before I die.


I guess I can chalk off skiing from my TODO list before I die.

well… Not that I have one, or intend to die soon, but you get the picture!

two of my collegues invited me to go skiing to Vodafone Ski Resort:

2 aninhos…

“First things, first…”
Ora, no último dia 29 de Janeiro, eu e o Andrézito comemorámos os nossos 2 aninhos de aturar um ao outro. Anitos complicados mas totalmente recompensadores (na minha modesta opinião 😛 ). Como o menino gosta muito de fazer surpresas, decidiu perguntar-me na noite de 28 de Jan. se podia vir cá passar a noite – a Lisboa. Pois bem, portas abertas para o meu morzão entrar. Uma vez que já estávamos perto da hora, decidimos fazer uma pequena reuniãozinha no meu quarto com as prendas que iamos trocar. SIM, prendaS no plural porque nós não fazemos a coisa por menos. Da parte dele recebi: Read more…

Who knew?

Marisa is a great photographer 🙂



Me and Marisa have been together for two years now (it was our birthday on the 29th of the present month), and so she decided to give me something special. I think it is a personal record actually 🙂

Blog changes

Hi gang,


I have just added a link to the top of the page (where am I), which should show up my location (or at least, where my Blackberry thinks I am). I am still figuring out the frequency I will use to update those values, because that means the mobile phone turning up the GPS, and sending the values through zeh Interwebs, which, of course, costs battery.


Also, I would like your help in deciding which gallery system I should keep. The new one, actually fetches the photos from flickr, so it’s more practical for me, as I don’t have to update both the galleries (the andrelemos.com and flickr.com one).

[poll id=”3″]

Ps.: try not to judge the galleries based on their contents, but rather on the layout/functionality!

Photo History

Well… My own…

During a debate on an internal mailing list on the company where I work, we started discussing the pros and cons of digital against analogic photography. Of course, I couldn’t stand still, so, along the day, I ended up writting a really big e-mail (in Portuguese, sorry folks), with the path I have done, photography wise.

You’ll probably find some rants along the way, so be sure to wear your protection hat.

Testing GPS tracking

This plugin for wordpress is kind of cool. Just used my Blackberry’s GPS to log my small trip, and this is what it shows here on wordpress:



I do not remember going that fast though. It has got to be wrong! lol 🙂
