Photographer's Note

Although I'm not very fond of re-posting, I wanted to repost this picture, because the angle in the original one was very wide, and all the columns were slant, and the thumbnail stinks, and I think this roof deserves better. bertolucci made a workshop, which I used for this repost.

This picture was taken in the church of the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos in Lisbon.
The monastery is build in 1502, and a few years ago completely renovated. the monastery is the most ambitious and succesful achievement of Manueline architecture. Dom Manuel (Manueline style), made a vow to the virgin that he would build a monastery should Vasco da Gama return succesfully. And da Gama returned very succesfully. You can find his tomb in the church.

The color of the monastery is of a beautiful yellowish, and I loved the roof.

Original picture skewed to both sides, sharpened, cropped and saturated a bit.
