As últimas imagens de Francisco Lázaro....


14 de Julho de 1912, Maratona Olímpica de Estocolmo

Aqui está uma fotografia do malogrado lisboeta durante a Maratona Olímpica de 1912 em Estocolmo. Graças ao seu equipamento e, à falta de protecção na cabeça, Lázaro é reconhecível nestas sequências à saída do Stockholms Stadion, no lado de dentro da curva (lado direito do atleta 166). Use o botão de "pausa" alternadamente e, aos 40,3 segundos do inicio da música....voilá ! 

E aos 20 quilómetros da prova no ponto de viragem  em Sollentuna. Lázaro a beber água com o número 518 (1:48 do video)

We went to buy food....and found Fertilia !









Built in the late 30`s by the fascist government, Fertilia is like landing in a neo-realist film, where time has stood still. It is a shame that this village is allowed to decay to such a level, almost as if the present authorities are ashamed of their own history. Fertilia is an excellent example of rationalist architecture, and is in every aspect a precious historical document.
Found also a book about Fertilia: "Fertilia", 2007, by Eugenio Cocco

"Where the action is" at Slottsskogen, June 28. Coldplay, Glasvegas, Brandon Flowers and others....


Music festivals
are not really my "cup of tea". For a lot of good things, may give rise to indigestion....and there is almost no time between the main courses. Not so fun for an artist to play the last songs, and see much of the audience rush to the next scene. But Slottsskogen is a lovely park, and the weather was the very best....



The desperation and sorrow in James voice is special. Okey...he was not really sober this evening….but Rabs gitarr was screaming and crying as usual. 


Brandon Flowers is a great singer....in fact he is probably the best singer out there. Not only for the fantastic voice ...but as much for the outstanding timing. This guy could go out for a 15 minute walk, and come back in the right hundredth of a second. 


Something was missing this evening….don`t ask me what!              ff
I still have that concert at Stockholms Stadium back in August 2009….in my had. For some reason I needed Fix You”….and I saw a little bird in the sky.
