Ponta Delgada at Dawn

Walking in the early morning is the best way to capture the details of a city before it fully wakens. Here are some photographs of observable moments taken while meandering in Ponta Delgada.

    The first books I ever bought in the Azores — including three by Álamo Oliveira! — were at Livraria Gil, which was just across from the hotel where I was staying. The shop closed several years ago, IIRC.

    Is a tile still an azulejo if it doesn’t contain any blue? LOL!

    Thank you for the tour Emanuel. I like the colourful tiles, the weathered walls, the intricate wrought iron work, the stone patterns on the walkways and the colour of ochre on planters and railings. Very old-world ambience.
