Basketball

I played with the handle, the wrist, of the camera, remembering the first photo of that day – a girl facing a basketball basket.
So much had changed and so suddenly …
Time passing by. Even when it seems to be impossible. However, the pleasure was to feel that emotion that was taking of my body – I explored the new route of the city, something I had never done when I visited Matosinhos.


The city was full of life, and people would leave home on a winter’s day to walk by the seashore. However, the cars lined up to reach the city centre.
A whirlwind of emotions invaded me again, I closed my eyes and I saw the exact moment when I had taken that photography, the basketball field was empty and when I was looking back I could see the beach, the waves became higher, crashing on the rocks, but, the wind was not hard even though the clouds moving faster. It was a chilling scene; It was as if the clouds moved with their own will …
“I’ll be back shortly,” I whispered softly.

Brinquei com a alça, para o pulso, da máquina fotográfica, relembrando a primeira foto daquele dia – uma rapariga de frente para um cesto de basketball.

Tanta coisa tinha mudado e tão de repente …

O tempo passa. Mesmo quando tal parece ser impossível. No entanto, a alegria era ainda a emoção que tomava conta do meu corpo – explorei novos caminhos pela cidade a dentro, algo que nunca tinha feito quando visitava Matosinhos.

A cidade estava cheia de vida, e as pessoas saiam de casa num dia de inverno para passearem à beira mar. Todavia, os carros faziam fila para chegar ao centro da cidade.

Um turbilhão de emoções invadiu-me novamente, fechei os olhos e vi o exacto momento em que tinha tirado aquela fotografia, o campo estava vazio e ao olhar para trás via a praia, as ondas tornavam-se mais elevadas, embatendo nas rochas, no entanto, o vento não soprava forte embora as nuvens se agitassem com uma maior rapidez. Era uma visão arrepiantente; era como se as nuvens se deslocassem com vontade própria…

– Vou voltar brevemente – murmurei baixinho.
