Spanning a river and several challenges
When Ann Christine suggests we Pick a Word on the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, I’m tempted. But when Paula offers another five on Thursday’s Special… what’s a woman to do? Give in, graciously!
Several bridges Span the river in Tavira, including Ponte Romana, a Roman bridge that isn’t; an uninspiring but very functional road bridge that soars across the water, and a small scale model of the same, nearing completion, to replace the former dilapidated Military Bridge. Construction of the latter has certainly been a challenge!
One of my favourite things is sailing out of this river to the Ilha beyond. Exuberant water fizzes and gurgles as it washes surfers and fishermen alike. So often flat calm, I love the sight and sound of leaping waves.
Two out of ten will do for now, don’t you think? And far too many words for Six Word Saturday! Have a good one, everybody!
Still playing with moods, and colour
Black and white can look a bit bleak to me, but inject a hint of colour and the mood changes completely, doesn’t it? Brian was a bit naughty with his response to Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge but I think we might have got away with it. Meantime, strange things are happening on Six Word Saturday. Have a great weekend, everyone!
Isn’t it all about the mood?
I was asked this week if I never go anywhere that I don’t like. I’m usually pretty upbeat on my travels and can almost always find something beautiful to share. But not everywhere has the same appeal, and disappointments do arise.
A dramatic poster picture of Carrasqueira at sunset promised much. Built on stilts, over the mud flats of the Sado estuary, the fishing village enables access to their boats for the fisherfolk. But in the bright light of day, with the tide out and a sludge of malodorous ooze, I found it hard to love. I don’t think my camera felt the same way, do you?
Happy weekend, and don’t forget to play Six Word Saturday!
Looking out to a brighter horizon!
It has to get better, doesn’t it? The alternative is unthinkable. For me, the immediate future is wonderful. My long held wish to see my son again is about to come true. If things go to plan, he will be here tomorrow evening. It’ll come as no surprise that I won’t be walking with you on Monday? 🙂 Hopefully, the following week. Meanwhile, keep squaring those Perspectives and enjoy your Six Word Saturday!
At the mercy of the tide
Such a fragile ecosystem! The tide rushes in and out each day, reshaping the shoreline with every sweep. It’s a watery Perspective that I love. Not all square, nor strictly Six Words, but incredibly beautiful. Have a good weekend!
P.S. No Monday walk again. Someone has a birthday and we will be in the Western Algarve. Back soon!
P.P.S. If you are viewing this on a phone or tablet the colours are too harsh. Imagine them a little softer.
My perspective is a little squared
My perspective is all over the place this week. Not aided by the UK government’s position on ‘air corridors’. For a while I was soothed by some excellent jazz. If only it would last! Wishing you a peaceful, happy weekend with Six Word Saturday and Becky’s Squares.
Looking back on a quiet moment
Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #102 and Six Word Saturday. I have a few technical issues and may not be posting for a while. Enjoy the peace!
No doubt about it- shade needed!
A stroll around Loulé, enjoying the shade. Into the 30s this weekend, so we’ll definitely need it. Meanwhile Debbie has been having fun on Six Word Saturday. And if you look closely I think I’ve made a few Weekend Reflections too? Have a good one, and see you on Monday for a walk.
Just wandering by. How about you?
Hard to resist Six Word Saturday. Have a nice day!
They choose the most majestic homes!
There were more storks than people in Faro the other day. I looked hard for babies but it wasn’t easy to tell with all the bobbing heads. Today Debbie is seeing triple on Six Word Saturday. Why not join her? Have a nice day!
