MM 210: Porto’s Ribeira District

The day after we walked around Gaia on the south side of the Douro we rode on the funicular down to the north side of the river and walked around Porto’s Ribeira District. My entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge is a shot of a string of buildings on Cais da Ribeira not far from the lower deck of the Dom Luis I Bridge.

Buildings along Cais da Ribeira near the Porto entrance to the Dom Luis I Bridge. I processed the photo with Adobe Lightroom and Nik Silver Efex Pro.

Here’s the color version of the photo:

The original raw file was processed in Lightroom to produce this jpg file.

In my next posting I will show you more photos of our Ribeira walk plus the hour-long cruise we took up and down the Douro.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website on Wednesdays (Tuesdays in Europe and North America) to see what Leanne and other photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days.
