If you live or go on holidays to Portugal you can’t notice that some houses have these entries. Some bigger, some smaller, some wider, some more narrow…

The thing is, that these typically Portuguese entries with the vine tree on the top is a true classic. There is no real summer for me if there are no dinners and lunches on a hot summer weekend day under the shadow of these vine trees, or geting some home raised grapes from the entrance of your own house, when you want, how many times you want, or a hot summer afternoon with your friends drinking beer and playing cards under it…

You know, I did’nt give much value to this when I lived in Portugal… until I moved out of there… How I miss to have a “ramada” in my house…

Self tought. I am still learning, I allways will be! Landscapes and nature were, are and allways will be my favourite thing to shoot. Other motifs? Yeah, they will come as well…
