Photographer's Note

The photo was taken during my holiday trip to Portugal. I was never very keen on cities. Till now. Porto is just amazing. For details: it's the second largest city in Portgal most famous for it's wineyards producing Port wine. In recent years, UNESCO recognised its historic centre as a World Heritage Site.

Ribeira is one of the city parishes. It's situated on the banks of the Douro River. The old buildings here are vividly painted and beautifully decorated. I't's easy to see old ladies watching off of their balconies or hanging wet clothes on the line to dry. The coloursn are just incredible.

What concerns my photo - the perspective is crazy. But i wanted it to be more about colours and contrasts than compostition.
