The seafaring history of Portugal spanned a hundred years from 1415-1515. Known as the Age of the Discoveries, this period saw Portuguese navigators sail across uncharted seas to break out of the boundaries of Europe and discover the New World.
In my latest travels to Portugal, I found boats, the sea and promenades alongside it, rivers, and symbols of Portugal’s love of the sea.

“PHOTOGRAPHY” INVITATION: I invite you to create a photography intention and then create a blog post for a place you have visited. Alternately, you can post a thematic post about a place, photos of whatever you discovered that set your heart afire. You can also do a thematic post of something you have found throughout all your travels: churches, doors, people reading, people hiking, mountains, patterns, all black & white, whatever!
In my case, my intention was to look for thematic possibilities during my trip to Portugal. As Portugal is a country with a long seafaring history, I thought I’d look to Portugal’s coasts, rivers and boats, as well as symbols of the country’s love affair with the sea.
You probably have your own ideas about this, but in case you’d like some ideas, you can visit my page: photography inspiration.
I challenge you to post no more than 20-25 photos (I have more here!) and to write less than 1,500 words about any travel-related photography intention you set for yourself. Include the link in the comments below by Wednesday, December 4 at 1:00 p.m. EST. When I write my post in response to this challenge on Thursday, December 5, I’ll include your links in that post.
This will be an ongoing invitation, every first, second, and third (& 5th, if there is one) Thursday of each month. Feel free to jump in at any time. 🙂
I hope you’ll join in our community. I look forward to reading your posts!
