Decay (XXXI): Off the Beaten Track


Very old looking abandoned area in Oeiras, actually, one of my favourites.
New constructions are getting closer and closer.

It looks like a great place for a long walk. Thanks for visiting HDP today.

Birdman said...

Wow! What a walkway pattern.

Sylvia K said...

What a lovely place to walk, JM! Love the stone work would love to know the history! New constructions seem to be moving in on just about everything these days.

I agree with Jack, looks like a great place. Love the path.

Jarart said...

I can see why it is a favorite place for you.

VP said...

A cobbled jewel, I hope it wouldn't be lost!

Margaret said...

I never tire of Portuguese stonework--on the walls or the walkways...

T. Becque said...

Wonderful. That looks like a great place to explore with your camera!

Sharon said...

Off the beaten track is my motto. I love going places that not many people go. This path looks like one of those places. I'd love following it.

I hope they do not knock this down for a new construction, It looks a lovely place. Diane

Sailor said...

That looks so beautiful. Personally I like old things, old people...

Jacob said...

This appears to be a wall of an old fort ... yes? Must be a wonderful place to wander about and take photos!

And this photo is very well composed and the color (esp. the sky) are super!

JM said...

@Jacob: I'm sure this must have been a farm; very few have survived the 'progress' in the region. All forts are on the shoreline and, if you are in the city center, this is opposite to the sea.

Francisca said...

The way you've angled the image, JM, it looks like a peaceful place. But why is it I suspect that right over that neat old wall the modern world would stare back at you? ;-)

Virginia said...

HOpe it stays safe. I love this series JM!

Um lugar abandonado mas lindo e romantico com sua ladeira empedrada!
E a fotografia ficou maravilhosa!

Tou a reconhecer o local, tenho a certeza que já passei ai, mas agora mentalmente não estou a consegui-lo localizá-lo geograficamente, onde foi tirada esta foto?

Sérgio Pontes said...

é que eu tenho a certeza absoluta que já lá passei =)

RedPat said...

I love old walls like that! Not something that you see here - we probably have nothing that old.

Babzy said...

very nice path !

Woody said...

I like the randomness of the lines in the walkway and how the grass has overgrown. Nice wall too. Will this be destroyed by the new construction? If so, that is very sad.

Small City Scenes said...

I can see why this would be a favorite place to walk and relax and of course take pictures. An old farm you say----sad when 'progress' rolls over everything. MB

Amin said...

Interesting and beautiful place!

Love the deep DOF. Very pleasing to the eye.

Joan Elizabeth said...

That is a path I would like to walk.
