Iberia Photos on Exit Booted

To kick off a new photo gallery project, the eponymous Exit Booted (but now on Medium.com), I’ve uploaded sets of photos from the summers I spent in Spain and Portugal in the mid-2000’s.

I’ll add more sets from my world travels as I continue to work my way through my photo library. Next stop: Siem Reap and the Angkor Wat temple complex in Cambodia. But first, back to Iberia 2004/2005

Lisbon is nothing never ever. Lisbon is for crying, pure destiny and weeping, fado and light of tears. But at the same time is a radical immersion in joy. “I see you once again, / city of my dreadfully lost childhood / Sad and happy city where I dream again”. It is not the white city that a mistaken Swiss thought he saw, but a blue city of cheerful invented nostalgia. – Enrique Vila-Matas, Montano’s Malady
