Barrels of Port
Stored in iconic wine cellars, these old wooden barrels are ideal for giving the fortified port wines their unique texture and taste. Just outside the shores of the Douro River, the Port culture is captured in the houses of traditional families steeped in protecting the highest quality of wine from the Baixo Corgo (lower), Cima Corgo (higher), and the Douro Superior schistose rocks, which give the Port wine its uniqueness.
Curious Cape Chacha
Photographed off the coast of South Africa. Somewhere near the bottom of the African continent, I found myself face to face with this curious male looking over the horizon. The Cape baboon can be intimidating and curious. My experience the African baboon is to always guard my personal belongings. They are very crafty and have been known to open doors and scavenge the insides of cars if left unattended.
Rabelo Near Vila Nova De Gaia
The Rabelo boat is the traditional Portuguese cargo boat that transported goods and people down from the Douro river high valley. Its flat design was necessary to navigate the shallow and fast-flowing waters down from the upper Douro. In Porto, these boats were the only means before modern transportation became more efficient.
