    Wonderful portrayal of the ‘everyday working woman’……………………..looks terrific in B&W

  • Thank you for your comment. The working woman in this part of Portugal seems to share a most even part of the workload.

    Great shot, so much story behind this shot

  • The communal wash area is still very common in this part of Portugal. It is very strange to our eyes.
