Crayon’s Gold is more of a burnished gold than the brash or yellow gold which I first thought of when I spotted that Jennifer’s colour of the day was Gold. Once I realised my mistake I immediately thought of a photograph I took a few evenings ago here in Olhão da Restauração.


My photograph is a close up of the sundial on the Igreja da Nossa Senhora so Rosário – Church of our Lady of the Rosary. This is the main church in Olhão; funded by local seamen it took 17 years to be built. I suspect nearly every visitor to Olhão has taken a photograph of the church either because of the storks on the roof, or because of the fascinating façade chapel at the rear which faces the Avenue of the Republic.


I can’t recall if my many photographs of the storks and the facade have yet appeared on my other blog, so for now here is one of the front and the bell tower a hour or so before sunset. For more burnished gold pop across and see Jennifer.

I'd love to hear what you think
