Lello Bookshop

this is the oldest bookshop in my hometown, Porto. J.K.Rowling used to come here to read and relax when she lived in Porto. This was in the beginning of her career when she was an english teacher. It is said that these are the stairs that inspired her on creating the Hogwartz crazy staircases that she wrote about on her books. This is an amazing place. in this shot i was lucky enough to capture and interesting woman with a crazy hat. this is one of my favourite shots.
