Guimarães, Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Oliveira

Die Kirche Unserer Lieben Frau von Oliveira (Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Oliveira) geht auf das 10. Jahrhundert zurück, als sie ursprünglich von Mumadona Dias, der Gräfin von Portugal, als Kloster gegründet wurde. Die ursprüngliche Struktur wurde im Laufe der Zeit durch Kriege und Invasionen stark beschädigt. Im späten 14. Jahrhundert wurde es unter König João I. wieder aufgebaut, nachdem er versprochen hatte, es im Falle eines Sieges gegen Kastilien in der Schlacht von Aljubarrota wieder aufzubauen. Seitdem steht dieses prächtige Bauwerk inmitten der sich wandelnden Zeiten und ist Zeuge unzähliger historischer Ereignisse.

Never On Sunday Saw this young woman at the cathedral on top of the hill, and then again here in the commercial plaza at the bottom. Just standing, in both places, late morning on a Thursday, where groups of mostly elderly tourists could see her. Took a discrete photo each time. She didn’t notice, or at least didn’t respond. 
Yes, I wondered.
No, I didn’t ask.
Not worth posting, really, but I like to alternate images with portrait and landscape orientation.

Songs of Time Traveled Is all photography time travel? 
Sunshine on the Water; ripples in the Douro River you can’t touch twice; a passing Summer Breeze; shadows of living trees; a working backhoe; modern housing with rural electrification among old vineyards on Country Roads; a old railroad bridge with Roman arches; Old Time Religion; ancient hills; the eternities of Gaia* and the grave.

*Mother Nature; i.e. the biosphere. The area around Porto is also called Gaia.

Ain’t Nobody Home With apologies to BB King, who meant something else entirely. Portugal seems to be recovering from many decades of authoritarian rule, but my sample is sparse and there is a long way to go. Meanwhile the tree seems to be doing fine.
