Barcos Rabelos, Porto. MM 212. Crosbyman

This is my image of a Barcos Rabelos, one of the traditional boats used to transport the Port Wine down the Douro River.

I entered it in this months Monochrome Madness Challenge run by Leanne Cole, an Australian photographer. The theme was ‘Boats’

It was selected but imagine my surprise when I saw an almost identical image submitted by Crow Canyon Journal. We must have stood literally yards apart. What a coincidence.


About crosbyman66

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
