Ostendnomadography - A passion for traveling and photography
I am Stef, alias, “OstendNomadography”. I’m in my mid 30’s, born in the Belgian coastal town of Oostende (Ostend). I consider myself a lonely ranger, with and without my camera. I always have a possible trip in mind, or on my schedule. As a proud patriotic citizen, on my blog you will see the beauty of my hometown too. I hope it inspires you all to have a visit to my lovely city.
I have been following the various Cee’s Photo Challenges for a long time, but I never participated. Well, let’s change this:). The topic of this week is “Letter W – Needs to start with W and have two vowels in the word” . So, my first entry in Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge, are “Windows” I’ve captured in New York City (2015).

Covilhã is divided in two parts: the lower part of the city, and the more upper part. The upper part is just that little more picturesque. Narrow streets, a bit of abandonment (remember, the gone glory of the textile manufacturing), small tiny doors and much more. In the lower part of the city, you can find a huge shopping mall and between the busstation and railway state: an artificial designed “Jardim do Lago”. A real “Lake garden”, built in 2005. In this area you can find a restaurant, a playground, lakes and ducks:).
And the nice thing was, I just came up before the sunset! Nice little cute ducks were swimming in one of the lakes. Perfect moment to grab my camera and experiment with my HOYA 7 2/3 stops filter:).

Few days ago, I’ve uploaded “Abstract Porto (part one)” and have to say and admit, I was overwhelmed by positive, warm and encouraging comments. Thanks to all of you:)! My blogpost of today, the second part of my abstract postcards of Porto. Have a joyful Sunday:)!
