Gate

Private house at Carcavelos

AWARDS
In the last couple of days I was honored with the 'Butterfly award' given to me by Tr3nta, (MAD) Daily Photo, Dusty Lens, North Metro and Beyond and Angela, Nice Daily Photo.
Thank you all so much!
I've also got the '(This blog believes and looks forward) PROXIMITY' award, also from Tr3nta, (MAD) Daily Photo. Thank you one more time, pal!
Now I know I should pass these awards to eight people, but I just can't... I've been visiting such fantastic blogs and have met such nice people around here since I became a CDP member that it is impossible for me to name only a few. So, don't be angry with me and please try to understand. All of you have been awarded now and you know who you are. Thank you!

That flower reminds me of a magnolia. Interesting the very different effect it gives at different scales.

Congratulations of your well-deserved awards!

I love this post.
The flowers in the gate are lovely and even lovelier when you look at them from close.
Good choice

I can only apologise for cutting and pasting this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise. I have only one pair of hands and the magical elves that I have working for me are a bunch of lazy good-for-nothings. All they do is sit around smoking and telling dirty jokes!

Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs and all your gingerbread men/women come out smiling.
