Pass The Port Please

As part of the great migration to the Mac, I am re-cataloguing some of my older digital photographs using the new version of Lightroom. In some ways the task is time-consuming, but it helps stimulate some of the memory synapses in my brain and I have little better to do with my time. I took this picture in June 2000 whilst I was attending a European Council meeting in Porto, Portugal as a press representative. At such gatherings, I usually managed to steal an hour or two away from the fascinating discussions of the Common Agricultural Policy or the European Regional Development Fund, to go in search of interesting photographs. Porto was a wonderful city through which port wine flowed like water. Indeed the memory is so strong it is making my thirsty. Pass the port please.

  5. It is a beautiful old city. Mac is my only choice but I have not heard of lightroom. I will have to check it out. Maybe a new computer is in my future. I hope all is well with you and your other half.

  6. Pour a glass for me. I loved Porto when we visited some years ago. We even saw where one winery still crushes the grapes by stomping on them with bare feet. Love your shot leading your eye down into the town.
