Beautiful Belem


I am enchanted by this postcard of Belem Tower from Lisbon, Portugal. I received this from Postcrossing last year. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but to me it looks like a chunk of castle right on the river--in an "Inception" kind of way.

When I first saw it, I thought it was really sitting on the sea with all those swimmers just close by. This is one of my favorite postcards which I like to occasionally include in my ever-changing tabletop displays at home.

Cool! It does look like a building from Inception :) And the black and white tone adds more drama. Beautiful indeed. Happy PFF, Conniechiwa :)

Superb! It has so much more to offer than just a straightforward picture.

What a great card! The black and white makes it so much more dramatic and real. Fun! Happy PFF!
