Beautiful Porto at Night

An Aerial Video from Porto!

This is a quick quadcopter video I made from Porto, Portugal for my friend Jose who has a photo-tour company there called Pictury Photo Tours. He didn’t pay me to do it or anything… was just doing it to be friendly! I love Porto so much, and if you ever end up going, definitely look up Jose!

Daily Photo – Beautiful Porto at Night

At the very end of the evening, we ended up down on the riverside with Jose and his family. We drank port right here along the river and took photos. That was such a fun time and the end to the perfect evening. After this, we somehow made it back to the bus then off to Madrid for another fun day!

The Whole Staircase

Here’s another photo I posted last year of this same location. It’s a must-visit in Porto! It’s called “Livraria Lello”!

Daily Photo – Inside the Harry Potter bookstore

This is a detail of the stairs from above. What a beautiful place, eh? I kind of was bummed out that the stairs were scuffed up a bit. If I owned this place, I'd make sure these stairs were always as red as can be. I was too busy taking photos to do any book shopping… besides, my reading list is already flowing over!

Hot Tip for this spot

Now in this legendary bookstore below, they don’t let you use tripods. This was a real buzzkill for me, so I tried my best with handheld (but not bad, eh?) – anyway after I was there I got a hot tip from a friend. If you get here in the morning, an hour before opening, the cleaning crew will let you in with a tripod so you can take your time and get the shot you want!

My friend Cliff from Google tipped me off on this place. He sent me his own photo and I go, “I gotta get in there!” Even though it's a real bookstore, you actually have to buy a ticket around the corner to get inside. I thought that was a bit strange, but they do subtract the cost of your ticket if you buy a book, so that's pretty cool.

This is a vertirama made from two handheld photos.
