Portuguese Street in Shadows
Originally uploaded by randubnick.
It's time for another picture from Portugal. I took this picture several years ago during my first trip to Porto, but didn't even see it until recently when I rescued it from obscurity -- literally. I took the photo around sunset and the image was so dark that it hadn't been printed, but was on the disc when I recently loaded it into the computer. I cropped it, enlarged it, and adjusted the light until I could see what I had. The soft and grainy image seemed to capture the sense of the old streets, where colors and edges are softened by time.
