Taken in Sintra, Portugal
Candid street photography

As I was walking past a Church I saw these worshippers getting in and out of Church through this beautiful imposing doorway. Taken as I was walking and was unable to get the correct angle .No matter what I do I do not seem to be able to straighten the horizon!

    Some nice synchronized stepping there, and the postures of the men and ‘colours’ of their sweaters are opposite – quite some serendipity there. The woman offsets nicely and makes it all real, great image.

  • Thank you very much for your wonderful comment .

    Great title for a fabulous image! Beautiful!

  • Thanks very much Karen. A relative passed away recently and I was inspired to see this image as the circle of life. One goes out and another comes in to replace that life, a vicious circle of life and death.
