Six word Saturday



The view that draws me back…

Looking down the years of our Portuguese home, there’s an image that appears over and over. It’s the bridge, Ponte Romana, in Tavira, with its lovely backdrop.  Many’s the evening I’ve idled, with a glass of port, watching the dip and swoop of the swifts.  Trying hard to catch their flight on camera, in an unsuspecting moment.

It’s just one reason to keep me going back.

This week Brie Anne at The Daily Post asks if you have a ‘muse‘.  Something to which you are drawn again and again.

Meanwhile Cate has just six words at Show My Face.  How about you?


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Muse.”


  1. A view you can call your own Jo … how super to think of that in the dead of an English grey Winter 🙂 Lovely pictures of the golden hour …. and a good twicthing spot by the looks of it too Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and warmth up where you are … next week … wow …


    1. Warmth is so easy to get used to, Poppy 🙂 I have a friend who’s coming over from Tavira to watch Wimbledon. She may be hoping for cooler weather 🙂 I certainly wouldn’t want to play tennis in it (but Rafa might 🙂 )


  2. This is such a beautiful photo Jo – I can see why this bridge would draw you back time and time again and it looks so lovely in the night light with all the lights twinkling in the background 🙂


    1. Mick would love to be there for his birthday next month, Madhu, but so far I haven’t booked flights. It’s probably too hot (fine for a beach bum like Mick 🙂 ) and flights are expensive, but we’ll certainly be back before too long. 🙂

  3. This is beautiful, Jo. I love the lights reflecting off the water. I’m constantly trying to capture pictures of swifts but they’re always too fast for me 😉


    1. Sorry, Meg! I keep forgetting that the slideshow is invisible on phones. IPads too? It’s a shame because they make a nice change from having to scroll (and scroll!) down. A nice way to break up the page. 🙂 Anyway… thanks!


      1. I’m better connected here with laptop, owned for a year and barely used. it is a good way to display photos, and you don’t have to apolgise for my technology! I’m also running an old iOS on my iPad.
