Today some compact camera shots. All made with the Panasonic Lumix TZ-5. Great little thing when the DSLR is just too much to carry (or you are too lazy to get it ;))

Porto

April 4th, 2009

Finally… some of the ~650 images that were left after cleaning.

It was a great trip to Porto. A nice town, nice people and great weather.

5 Days were ideal to see much of the city, although if I had had one or two more days I would have spend one in Braga (located north of Porto).

Feel free to comment.
