A vida académica... Oct 28th

Instagram, week 44, 2013. Littered streets after a (stupid and pseudo-traditional) academic fraternity party. N.N.T. defends procrastination in The Bed of Proscrutes. That time during the afternoon the sunlight hits my desk just right. How sad it is to find the used book I bought had been a Christmas gift. A ticket office with a sign that says "Listen the other one listening" (from the 2007 archives, can't remember the context). Decorated my office with a vintage public domain poster. RU+A continues — the finished intervention by the Maniaks collective. Playing cards with Elvises (from the 2008 archives). A friend, the illustrator Constança Araújo Amador, has a new exhibition at the Cadeira de van Gogh here in Porto, check it out. The Futureplaces Impromptu All-Stars Orchestra presented Daft Phunk, a very funny (and very noisy!) concert. Testing my (first) cameraphone — a Panasonic clamshell that was rather satisfying to use — at my father's office (from the 2006 archives).

A RU+A continua! Oct 21st

Instagram, week 43, 2013: more RU+A project graffiti interventions in Cedofeita by Mesk, Third (finishing his painting of Billie Holiday) and the Maniaks collective; Hélia Aluai's earlier intervention has a rather interesting effect when backlit at night.

And also: a (rather central) building that resembles something out of Gotham City — hadn't noticed it before! Yellow truck involved in that endless roadwork at the doorstep of the college where I work. And it's nice to see Ari the cat growing up.

Instagram, week 41, 2013: a series of photos on a common theme, the streets of Porto I spend most time at. I had never used the stock camera app that came with my phone (a 2012 HTC One S), but I found it has a rather good 'HDR' mode that doesn't produce blatantly obvious (at least to me) HDR pictures.

Remodelação. Oct 1st

Instagram, week 40, 2013. Office makeover. I rarely make the cross to the other side of the Douro river, saw the new aerial tramway up close for the first time (it's a shame it's been built as an expensive ride for tourists, it would be rather useful as public transportation). An attempt at trolling photography critics with a photo of Susan Sontag's On Photography. My friend Joana's new apartment building has an interesting foyer, an... interesting elevator, and cassette tapes lying around. The RU+A project continues, with a painting by Hélia Aluai.

Em obras. Sep 24th

Instagram, week 39, 2013. Intense roadwork at my workplace's doorstep. The clouds that brought about massive showers. A BMW Isetta was parked at my door. A patriotic excavator with a bumper sticker that reads "backhoe operators are nice". A car boot sale with a view, shame it was very chilly and windy.

upload Sep 16th

Instagram, week 38, 2013. The RU+A event. Also, one of the murals painted a couple of days later. A beautiful sunset over the motorway. Some time to play FIFA. Riding the top floor of a double-decker bus. ZX Spectrums on display. Google Now recommended I listened to The Smiths in a somewhat scarily prescient manner. An ATM got the Blue Screen of Death.
