Stone Hall, Portugal

This stone hall is in the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza in Guimarães, Portugal.  I love the texture of the stone and the way the light “bends” as it goes from the floor to the wall opposite the doorway.  I also like the austerity of the hall.  Much of the Dukes of Braganza is given over to extravagance.  This simple hall appeals to me more than the palace’s many large rooms full of treasures.

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