Daily photos from Porto/Oporto
This is what we can read in the city coat of arms, which means in english something like Ancient, Very Noble, Always Loyal and Unvanquished City of Porto. But Invicta is the most famous name because of the victorious resistance against the Napoleonic Imperial army.
Before this viaduct all traffic was done at the right and sharing the thin space with trams between the walls and Douro river.
I don't know what's the purpose of this scratches, the sky and the stairs save the picture.
After seen Neki blog i look to this word now with a smile. Borracha in portuguese means rubber but in spanish is a drunk woman:-D
Today Néle Azevedo showed her short duration art at Praça D.JoãoI, true delightful for the eyes.
Fast!, click me to see more pictures while i'm freezed.
Sooner or later someone is going to start a war against this dishes, most interesting is the name of the company with the word cable on it.
Before my affair with photography this view would be irrelevant to me, now i stop the car, get out and take a lot of shots before go home happy and whistling.
This is the entrance of one "ilha"/"islands" as they are called here.
Today i'm going to post something different, a cityscape in downtown. This photo is from Clérigos street, you can see to the left the begining of Praça da Liberdade and then in front 31 de Janeiro street where i took this photo in june.
The weekend was great, i know that, you know that, but now it's time to go back to work!
ps:Last two days i had to put my pictures in small format again with blogger because my photo hosting service is down again. I'm waiting zoto!
Leixões seaport helping on a sunset, i took this shot from here.
Today i saw this sign on a subway station, it's amazing how modern man is so careful with signs like this but still keep doing so many basic mistakes, which are this mistakes you ask me? ... Exactly, those kind of mistakes we all do.
Have a nice weekend and be careful where you put your feet:)
Most people don't like rain, i do, and now i can get photos like this wet fence at Conde Ferreira Hospital.
ps: Para os meus leitores do Porto e arredores queria deixar claro que não sou paciente no citado hospital;)
This is a service i have never used, shoe shiners at Aliados av.
Paving work in St Catarina Street, more info about Portuguese pavement here.
Today i spent all morning taking a lot of pictures but i'm going to post a homemade one, i looked at the table of my father-in-law and saw a couple of publications and decided to take a shot because of some interesting facts to me:
-Jornal de Noticias with a photo from this place in front page.
-Schedule of Casa da Música, i have a picture here.
-Seringador, popular publication with 142 years.
Today i had to travel again to Pocinho and took this shot at 7am from this same place but from a different angle.
This door should be from the time when doorbells where a new thing, this door is like those cars with a button to disable automatic transmititon.
If you saw this door where would you put your hands?
Everyone wants to arrive home in our main city access, the VCI .
This house near Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto has a lot of green vegetables to eat and i think the main residents are honeybees, at least in the balcony.
This house is the last surviver in a place occupied with our biggest hospital, university and schools.
Today many people return to work today from traditional august vacation, this world never stops there is always someone working when your not.
From the time when we use the word football, from my search this is from 1910, today we use the portuguese word futebol and the rest i let to football fans.
This is a nice place where i went yesterday with some friends, it has a great view because this is a terrace in the top of a cinema but since some of you are still scared with my last photo i let you only my shadows today, Ah Ah Ah!
This is a beautiful house near where i live, since i move here this house is abandoned with a plate saying it is for sale, now looks someone bought it and i'm sure it was by a number with a lot of zeros which takes me to think in two cenarios, to rebuild and bring this palace to life again or to destroy and start a new construction.
I just let here how this house look today surrounded by green.

About Me, Porto and this blog
Hello, my name is Nuno Gonçalves and since i was born in 1975 i never tought one day i would be living in Porto but that happened in 2000 when i moved here to finish my studies and start working as software developer.
Sometimes the unexpected is good and this was the case because i assume before living here i didn't know how intense and great is to live on this historical city with a 1,000-year history. Meanwhile I have married, have a lovely daughter and settled downtown with no plans to move out. Since i'm not native my interest by Porto history has been always present from the 1st day i move, now is even more interesting because of this blog i pay more attention with some details that are now converted to big issues. The idea of starting PortoDailyPhoto was at the moment i look at LondonDailyPhoto by Ham and found it a great way share my long walks and use my compact camera, i'm a complete amateur who have bought a small camera just to take some pictures to my family and now i take shots of everything and sometimes i remember my family!
