beach town

Cascais. Hometown.
A previous boss of mine: "Oh Cascais, I went there on my honeymoon, it's such a cute little beach town". 
I never thought of Cascais as a "beach town", yet I guess you could call it something along those lines, it is indeed by the beach. There's too many rich and snobby people in Cascais to call it a beach town. Beach town just makes it sound all hippie and chill and lazy-bum-surfer-ish (the way I imagine Tofino to be). Cascais is too crowded and touristy to be a beach town.
Anyway, here's a few photographs of "beach town" Cascais. Enjoy.

Few weeks ago I watched the movie Yes Man. It was pretty good. I'm not usually a big Jim Carrey fan buuuut it was good. Plus it had Zooey Deschanel in it. Yes, I know, she's amazing. Enough said. the movie Zooey Deschanel teaches a Jogtography class. Jogtography is going jogging and taking awesomely blurry photos while doing so (click here to see the Jogtography scene from the movie).
Obviously I loved the idea, so a few days later I found an old disposable camera laying around, dug out my sweatpants and went jogtographing. Turns out jogtographing is as awesome as I thought it would be, however jogging is still pretty boring and lame. The fact that I'm super out of shape and can barley make it past 4 blocks doesn't help either. I was considering doing this more often now...who wants to come?!?!
Here are a few blurry shots from the little disposable camera. It really is nothing special but I love the idea of it and....isn't the idea and inspiration that counts? Yeah, I'm totally going to do this again.

yeah, that's my headphone-ear-bud-thing flying around
