Street Art Sunday In Porto

My street art photography collection grew significantly today, after picking up my Canadian friends from Porto Airport in the morning and taking them around the city. They couldn’t check into their AirBnB until the afternoon, so we locked up their bags at Trindade Metro Station and hit the pavement with three cameras between us. Some of the street artworks shown here are new, some I’ve posted before, some I’d only previously shot with my phone and not the DSLR.

I know I would improve the efficiency in labelling these pictures (artist/street name) by leaps and bounds if I’d turned on the GPS on my phone. Instead, I forget to do it and when I sit in front of the computer later to tag the images, I have to scour the internet and maps for clues. But I finally finished adding artist names and street locations to all of them, which took some time. OK, a lot of time, but that’s my own fault.

The rate at which street art expands and changes in this city is dizzying. I love it!
