Se Velha: a view

Se Velha: aview from the cloister

A View from the cloister of the Se Velha Cathedral, Coimbra, Portugal----- looking thru the arches at noon-- deep shadows from brilliant sunlight----peaceful------

Posting today to let you know that---it appears--- that my computer will be rebuilt this weekend-- This should be an easy upgrade--probably will be back in order by Sunday----

Fabulous composition. What really jumps out here is the balance between bold outlines - the arches of course, but also the silhouetted plant at the bottom, the roofline against the sky, the blue 'rose' at the top. Just takes me there.
