Braganza Palace, Guimarães, Portugal

I like unusual angles.  This photo of the Dukes of Braganza Palace in Guimarães was taken from high atop the walls of Guimarães Castle.

I like how the moss on the castle walls tie in with the green grass around the palace and I like how the walls frame the palace.

Guimarães is a beautiful city, full of history.  It’s called the birthplace of Portugal, because the country’s first king, Afonso Henriques, we born here.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
