The end. by Arco-Íris

Posted on 2018-11-18

Trago dentro do meu coração,
Como num cofre que se não pode fechar de cheio,
Todos os lugares onde estive,
Todos os portos a que cheguei,
Todas as paisagens que vi através de janelas ou vigias,
Ou de tombadilhos, sonhando,
E tudo isso, que é tanto, é pouco para o que eu quero.

Blind Man by Martin

A old Blind Man quietly whispers his Christian prayers while holding his worn wooden alms box aloft in his hopes for a few coins outside a 16th century church.

besides the gorgeous view what made me take this picture was the mixture beetween buildings and nature and also how the fog also makes the buildings almost blend with the sky

Maria by Jean Fraipont

The end of the day looks with beautiful light in a courtyard. "Maria" opens a window and enters the dry clothes. Already vegetable smells fill the air.

Palavras nuas que beijas
Quando a noite perde o rosto;
Palavras que se recusam
Aos muros do teu desgosto.

Entrudo Chocalheiro by Arco-Íris

Posted on 2018-02-15

Entrudo Chocalheiro. The Careto tradition is a pre-historical Celtic religious ritual still practised in some regions of Portugal. It takes place during Carnival and is one of the oldest traditions being practiced in Portugal today.

Caretos are masked young men dressed in suits made of yellow, red, black, blue and green fringe wool quilts, wearing brass, leather or wooden masks and rattles in their belts.

Shrove Tuesday and the prior Sunday are the days when the Caretos are most active.

Odeceixe Portugal

The Fisherman's Walk by grouser

Posted on 2014-05-24

So we continue south to Odeceixe and take a walk along the Atlantic coast there. This is still February and the tail end of the gales that brought so much rain to the UK and gave us such a rough crossing are still whipping the sea to creamy foam here.

Lisbon Peacock Portugal

Show off by grouser

Posted on 2014-05-11

We took a day trip into Lisbon. This rather unusual peacock was in the Castello De Saint Jorge where we had a rather good pasta lunch. He was hanging out and displaying by us and was much photographed by passing tourists. His missus doesn't seem too impressed though :)

Bidoeira, 25 de Agosto de 2008
So when the fight is over,
And the storm is through,
Now will you pick another?
What will you get into?

So you stand in the corner,
With those boxing gloves on you,
You’re old, scared and lonely,
Yeah we’ve all been there too… uh uh
We’ve been all there too…

Kiss me, oh kiss me,
If that can make it right.
Try me, find me,
Just throw them on me…

O Jardim Botânico da Ajuda, em Lisboa, foi mandado construir por Marquês de Pombal, em 1768, no reinado de D. José I. O mais antigo jardim de Lisboa nasceu de uma proposta do botânico Domingos Vandelli. No final do século XVIII tinha cerca de 5000 plantas. O Jardim tem mais de 1640 plantas e um Banco de Conservação de Sementes.

Sintra National Palace Kitchen Portugal

Back in Sintra it's a rainy day so we finally visit the National Palace and see the interior of those odd cone shapes, so much a feature of the building.

Lisboa, Rua Augusta.

downtown by António Pires

Posted on 2014-02-17

Lisbon downtown (a baixa) was built at the end of the 18th century, after the almost complete destruction of the city by the 1755 earthquake. Although some hurts already exist, the architectural style is thus fairly homogeneous.

The urban mesh is geometrical (the streets cross at right angles), which is a common pattern in the USA for instance. The Bairro Alto quarter follows the same pattern but the houses were of a lower class.

Rainbow Cabo Girao Madeira

Rainbow by grouser

Posted on 2009-03-11

Had the luck to capture this rainbow from the top of Cabo Girao in Madeira. They push this as the second highest cliff in Europe, but in fact it would seem to be about seventh or ninth. However at 580 metres high it's not to be sniffed at.
