“Quo Vadis?” is about my search in life.

Alentejo is storks, majestically sitting on their big nests on top … More Alentejo Revisited

But the longer I walked the more I felt disconnected to that ‘silly thing called economy’. I fled into reality.. Another spring has come and we’re still here. No, we … More Flight into Reality
Through these photographs I want to show my fascination with the environment. I live in the countryside and every morning when I wake up I see the vast beauty of my surroundings.
