Poetry and poem by Fernando Pessoa. Fernando António Nogueira Pessoa (1888 — 1935) was a Portuguese poet, philosopher, playwright, essayist, translator, advertiser, astrologer, inventor, entrepreneur, business correspondent, literary critic and political commentator. One of the greatest poetic geniuses in all of our Literature and one of the few Portuguese writers known worldwide. His poetry turned out to be decisive in the evolution of all Portuguese poetic production in the 20th century. If the Symbolist heritage is still notorious in him, Pessoa went further, not only with regard to the creation (and invention) of new artistic and literary attempts, but also with regard to the effort at theorization and literary criticism. He is a universal poet, insofar as he gave us, even with contradictions, a simultaneously multiple and unitary vision of Life. It is precisely in this attempt to look at the world in a multiple way (with a strong substrate of rationalist philosophy and even oriental influence) that lies a plausible explanation for having created the famous heteronyms – Alberto Caeiro, Álvaro de Campos and Ricardo Reis, not to mention with the semi-heteronym Bernardo Soares.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2Y0c0O3obkeIGgEjxiHl8A/join
Landscapes at Blue Hour
Summer is a good time to take advantage of the blue time. This waiting time when day passes into night and the sky takes on a particular tone that allows you to see the shadows invading the Earth…
It’s the time of the “blue hour” that I prefer, when everything becomes prettier, smoother and brighter. It’s like a dream veil…
The sun is setting, but night has not yet fallen…
It’s like time is suspended, in complete harmony with the World and the light…
With the tops of the mountains touching the sky in this enigmatic blue hour, all things get confused and the time seems to have gone wrong, being enveloped in a scenario of perfect tones announcing the darkness to come…
In the morning, the blue hour precedes dawn and at night, twilight follows, marked by its pink tones.
For photographers, this is a moment of unique magic!!!
The blue hour is the time of day when the sky glows dark, a deep blue, almost electric.
It happens twice a day: in the morning before sunrise and in the afternoon after the sun goes down.
