Once upon a time there was a wall

Oeiras downtown public park, Jardim Municipal, on a rainy day.

They left the best part of the wall it seems. Elegant arch, perfect for a picture.

that certainly looks ancient

Peter said...

What a beautiful park (I clicked)!

Somehow, it's good that the rest of the wall is gone; you probably get a better view of the park!

Have a nice weekend, in the park or elsewhere!

great title and great shot. fragile yet it calls out it has strength in history for architectural pieces like this to survive. it is a good location and I bet many people take photos standing under this exquisite arch

A beautiful arch! I like the way it frames the lamp post and is that a fountain behind it too?

I love the symmetry of this pitcure. It's so well centred. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Let's hear it for those engineers and stone masons back in the day that figured out how to make things last.

It's a lovely park! Such beauty and history there.

Great composition, and I'm enjoying all the green as everything is brown here right now.

You lead the way for a nice week end through that archway!...
The lamp post is beautifully framed.

Beautiful scene!

The arches are undoubtedly my favorite. They also contain great symbols.

Nevertheless, you might be interested in this video of Rob Forbes on TED forum, Davos, sharing his snapshots! Do tell me how did you find his ideas.

Humble regards!
