Granite boulders, Sintra, Portugal.
Walking past a car, Sintra.
Specialist roofer, Quinta da Regaleira.
Detail of protection system using a fixed line & descenders.
Rooftop doll, Bica, Lisbon.
Lost & found, Lisbon Portela Airport.
Themes that connect these six images:
Grey. Absence. Rise & Fall.
(oh, and Portugal)
Pictures 3 and 4: A family is sightseeing below. Child: “Mommy, there’s a man climbing on that building.” Mother: “That’s his job, he’s fixing the roof.” Child: “Not that one. That one!” Mother: “My god that doesn’t look safe, I hope he knows what he’s doing… wait, is that M John Harrison?” Father: “Not quite dear. That’s m john shoe.”
That doll’s been partying. You’d have thought it would be legless rather than armless. Sorry. It was the half open eye of that basilisk granite rock that unnerved me into an act of poor humour.
Here’s the soundtrack.
Sorry about the embedding!
For themes, I’d have a look at the one in the title first. Then maybe search the category of the same name, where it’s possible to find a post entitled “fantasy goods” featuring an interesting quote about Walter Benjamin’s “Lost Property Office”…
Nice track, Josep.
Thanks. It’s pure saudade. I hope you enjoyed Portugal.
