Thank you VERY MUCH Terry and Susan. I don´t know what´s happening but internet or this site is soooooooooooooooooo slow that makes it really hard to make comments. Do you have that problem or is it only me?
Cheers from Portugal, Su #1102866

Susana, this is great. I love seeing the streets of this town. Morning routine, dogs sniffing around, beautiful buildings. Its taking me home a little bit...Beautiful image and scene ! (but is it really B&W ?)
Yes it is a little slower than usual I found, even with DSL... #1102959

Susana, I agree with homey, so quaint..I don't think it's b&w..correct? I see a hint of color in the image. Great capture and perfect timing on your part! Excellent shot! #1103026

Oh Su, I just love this!!
What a wonderful serene scene.
I love the light, shadows, tall buildings and narrow street.
I love the way the sun glistens off the woman's back, how her broom is so bright that it looks like she is spreading the sunshine with it.
This is just lovely!!!

Thank you BP friends! I highly appreciate your words, I am already preparing the new exhibition about Viana do Castelo city and this belongs to my selection of photos.
This is not a B&W photo but I do like the way it almost looks like a B&W image. I love the light and the warm feeling that comes from this image. I appreciate indeed your words. THANK YOU!
Cheers from Portugal, Su #1104390
