Hello Lauro

I like the great history of your country. The mural as depicted stands as a memorial of those who paid with their lives to overthrow the dictatorship. May peace rein in Portugal forever. Well done on the image.


Hi Lauro,
A powerful image depicting years back in time.

Bom dia Lauro,
Bela foto e apresentação referta de grande conteudo.
Festas por essa grande Nação.
Bom fim de semana e mais belas fotos.

El pueblo unido jamás será vencido !
Dear Lauro,
Very nice picture with beautifull colors.

hello Lauro, you too must take some credit for this shot. Taken at the right time of day with beautiful blue sky and the light and shade provides depth . Nice shot

Hola Lauro
Excelenter foto. Los ladrillos descubiertos hacen las veces del cabello del personaje.


Hello L:auro,
A very interesting image indeed. While credit goes to the street artist, the photographer also did well, especially for seeing it and bringing it to the world here. I had even forgotten that there was a dictatorship in Portugal as recently as the 1970's. Well done for reminding us.

ola Lauro

um abraço
