Photographer's Note

Continuing the series on Portalegre, this is the alley that lies on the right of the house that I showed in my last post. I didn't remember any more that strange characteristic of the house: apparently it has no doors and the only windows are tiny. I wonder where the door is and why they built it this way. You may guess that the front façade is on the other side, to the left, but on that side there is another city wall that is higher than the one that appears on the right.

As in other occasions, I wish there was a way to attach scents to photos, as one of the pleasant things one could feel in the air of this wonderful Spring day in this part of the town was the perfume of lemon tree blossom. I have not any interesting shot with such trees, but maybe you can picture in your imagination these little orange trees aligned behind the fig tree in the foreground as blossoming lemon trees. :-)
