Photographer's Note

Who doesn´t remember to put a sticky tongue on a stamp, place it in a white envelope and then just send it to someone??? Wow...so special that was...

You don´t remember??? Well, too bad for you...:)))


New technologies, such as the web, brought a complete new world to people and that is changing the new generations way of comunicating each other...to think on this, you may imagine a simple situation:

Today you need to write your best friend, who is far away in a distant town...

What will you do??? I tell you: you just pick your mobile phone and send a message, or you just pick your pc and send a mail...and you do that in such a natural way, right? Nowadays TIME is money, and people are forgetting that TIME should be spent also to give and share things with those you love, and not to care only with material stuff...i don´t say that writing a mail or sending an sms can´t be a love act...but i don´t know...i remember the things i used to share when i was writing letters by hand and sending them to friends, girls, family....and i remember how great that was...so much things involved...and maybe the main diference was that to writte a letter by hand you spend more time with it..writing, getting stamps, take it to mailboxs....and all this time you were thinking on the person you were writing..Wasn´t that great??? gosh! i miss those times....


This is a public post box in some old street in Porto...you can see the "last mail pick up" time of the day...

These used to be the places where we used to post some of our feelings...
