The sea as a large canal of adventure and discovery.
In ages past it was the great scenario of epic times,
from Ulysses’ Odyssey to the sea-faring epics of the discoveries.
This is the Sea, an immense open space that
challenges men by its emptiness,
Kindling curiosity and pushing them towards the
It was in this open space that in the 15th century,
the The Pinta, The Niña and The Santa Maria set
out on the adventure and sailed, got lost, sailed and
ended up by discovering the “New World”.
Now, in the dream they are able to dock in
Portuguese lands and tell us about their travels
and adventures by means of the three “little paper
sailing-boats” which have moored in the safe
harbour of Estoril, attracting the attention of the
little folk and grown-ups strolling by the seaside.
Perhaps by narrating their stories, they make men
dream once more as they had done one day long
ago with all the little boys who had dreamed of
going to sea.
Love these shots of the sail boats!
J'aime ! Les bateaux de papier font penser aux enfants et les enfants font des rêves . Tour comme ceux qui contre l'avis de tous poursuivaient le leur d'Ulysse a Colomb sans la capacité de rêver,de croire a l'impossible rien ne serait arrivé.
Le monde a besoin des rêveurs!
ahhh...of course recognizable names :))) I like that there are different tones for each shot..but #2 captures my attention the most because of the texture you've captured of the rock...lovely work Tonio!
Quem é que não fez estes barquinhos de papel em criança? Se calhar até Cristovão Colombo os fez, mas transformou seus sonhos em realidade.
Gosto sobretudo da última, que me lembra ao mesmo tempo das pirâmides.
