Tilewatch: Porto & Guimarães

I recently visited Porto and Guimarães in the north of Portugal for a long weekend for some music in Porto (thanks to Primavera Sound's first edition in the city) and some culture-spotting in Guimarães (current European Capital of Culture). Naturally while I was there I was going to take some photos of tiles, but when I arrived I convinced myself I had forgotten my camera. I bought a disposable on day one and then found my own camera at the bottom of my bag on day three (of four). So a lot of my photos from the trip are a little grainy and make every flat surface (like that of a tiled facade) look a little curved. You can see these and other tile photos over on my tumblr, Tilewatch. Suck it, Instagram.
