Photographer's Note

This photo is part of a group of shots taken inside an ancient fortress on the Estoril Coast.

Looking around for pleasant angles or views, I was surprised to see the small basket all adorned and carrying gifts to Iemanja, “Queen of the Seas”.

There are several contrasts in this photo: The very new basket against the centuries old walls, or the ageless rocks; The new cult of Iemanja,, brought in to Portugal by the Brasilians, being worshiped in a very catholic fortress; The Portuguese typical fruit basket being used instead of palm leafs; and, of course, the contrast of the pink against the green of the see.
