In old Lisbon things are as they always were: Readers keep reading, dogs keep watching and warriors hold to their swords 🙂
On Largo Chiado, the small place right between Rua Garrett and Largo de Camões, there are two churches.
On the souther side we have Igreja Nossa Senhora do Loreto. These churches are not particularly important, Nossa Senhora do Loreto is not even marked on Google Maps, but when I have a church on my way, I can rarely resist looking in.
I own two tripods, both of them stowed away in cabinets, one in Villach, one in Vienna. I brought none of them. For me and the kind of images I make, the time of tripods is over. Therefore these images and all otehrs in Lisbon were taken handheld, with shutter speeds down to 0.4 seconds.
I hadn’t even known that he is buried in Ferrara, but the first thing the woman at the entrance of the Cimitero ebraico di Ferrara asked us was, whether we were there to see Bassani’s tomb. It came as a surprise to us but, yeah, that’s why we were there.
Here it is.
Right at the center of Sopron is the church of a former Benedictine monastery, today also a museum. Below the church is a crypt that is seemingly still in use as a final rest.
