"As Mariza sang, many years ago, I too was touched profoundly by the "beijo de saudade": the kiss of mournful longing for Portugal. When my longing becomes overwhelming, I travel there to quiet it. It’s small but beautiful, with Spain as its "big brother". The Portuguese, however, stare straight into the neighboring waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
I enjoy being in Porto on the banks of the Douro River in the shadow of the Eiffel-style iron bridge. I love sauntering around Lisbon looking for the mouth of the river Tag, also known by the locals as the Straw Sea of Lisbon, or being lost in the hills of Alfama.
Besides the wonderful beaches with their yellow cliffs in Algarve, it’s worth spending sunset at Saint Vincet Cape, contemplating the infinity of the ocean… feel "saudade" for the sailors.
I chose the Tejas lens and the Kodot XGrizzled film to highlight the golden ochre colors during the day and the smoky ambience at dawn. Maybe it wasn’t a sorrowful kiss; maybe it was "mordida de saudade" - a bite of sorrow, because I already long to return."
