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.

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 đŸ™‚

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 đŸ˜€

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.

Tourist in Lisbon


On Saturday Marisa took me for a great walk through the Lisbon centre. The idea was to visit the Castle of SĂ£o 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.

Hey there!

This weekend was great! I went to Marisa’s farm house near Ferreira do ZĂªzere, and I have spent a really great time while there! It’s a really peaceful place, with great landscapes.

I think the highlights were obviously, the time we’ve spent together, either when cuddling, sweeping the patio, catching oranges or running on the river shore (I obviously outran her :-P, and don’t you dare denying this!).

Her family was really nice to me, and are great folks all around. The weather was a bit chilly, but other than that, all was perfect đŸ™‚

I suppose the highlight of the highlights was when visiting Dornes’ [1][2][photo] church, that is situated in a peninsula, the friendly church keeper promised us that when we’d get married, she’d fill Dornes’ church with flowers, and any time we’d go back, we could sleep over at her place. I think she really liked us, and thought we were married from the get go, because filling a church with flowers isn’t an easy, nor cheap task.
