Ferias, dia 40. The holiday is over (and a little #urbanphotography), 2 September 2022

It was time to go home. We arrived in Lisbon with plenty of time before the train was due, driving over the famous ponte 25 de Abril.

I came across a couple of objects that had beenContinue reading “Liminal space on the beach, 26 July 2022”

Although we went to the beach,  on our arrival it started to rain so we neverContinue reading “Ferias 2021: até ja, praia (8 September 2021)”

Ferias 2021: our daily view of the beach, 3 September 2021

No views of the sea today. Why not, you ask. Well, thought you already had too much of a good thing. So today we’re concentrating on the main character of our beach, the cliffs. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/09/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-3.html

Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 31 August 2021

On the whole it was a lovely day, with warm water and blue skies. Later though the clouds drew in leaving an overcast sunset that ended on a glorious note. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/09/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-31.html
