Michelle Lemay: Portugal

Traviling with film can be an ordeal!  Film cameras are heavy, and packing film in and out of airports is not always convenient.  But holy moly, are the results worth it!

Check out these gorgeous images by Michelle Lemay!  The make me want to pack up and go to Portugal!

From Michelle:

These images are from my trip to Portugal this summer.  

I selected photos from only Evora and Arriolos, two inland towns.  We also visited and loved Lisbon and Comporta during this trip, but these places had such a specific and unique feel to them, I thought they stood best alone.  

Both Evora and Arriolos are sun-baked, sleepy communities where little English is spoken and you really feel you’ve stepped out of your life into another world.  

It was 110 degrees fahrenheit during our stay, and the white hot, baking streets were utterly deserted during daylight hours.  Only as the sun dipped low in the sky did the Portuguese emerge and start walking their dogs and doing their shopping.

 I shot these on my pentax 645nii with fuji 400h.  Scans are by Photovision.
