The Getaway

This image features a masked woman during covid with food and water walking past a travel agency window. The image features the terroir of The Azores including the traditional sidewalk tile and one of the famous lakes of Sau Miguel. This image represents the dreamlike juxtaposition of the practicalities of navigating Ponta Delgada city life during covid while imagining an experience of one of the world class natural settings a short drive from the city center. The traditional Azorian tiles set against the image of a lake in the window encompass the primary distinctive elements of The Azores.
