The 45m high Ponte Dom Luis (Bridge) in Porto, spanning across the Duoro River provides the perfect vantage point for an overview of the Ribeira District along the waters edge. With numerous Cafe’s and restaurants lining the riverside district, the area attracts tourists and locals alike. The low sun angle in the late afternoon creates larger than life shadows of people walking on the timber access ramp from the quayside to the road level. Shadow is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of these shadows are my response to the prompt.

State of Mind

I’ve often written about travelling┬áto Europe during Winter, and the more often than not inclement weather. Grey skies, cold, rain etc on a constant basis can have a damping effect on your state of mind. So when I saw the “state of mind prompt” prompt for the weekly photo challenge this week, I looked at a selection of my images from┬ámy recent “winter” trip to Portugal. Images that were taken during or after particularly inclement weather, always seemed to have bright coloured elements in the image, perhaps my subconscious or maybe even conscious way of colouring up that dampened state of mind :-). Some of these images are my response to this weeks prompt.
