Photographer's Note

The Nativity scene is already in Monsaraz, like it happens every year. I haven't been there yet this year but I've searched and found several I took last year. This year I'm showing it in a different way, in b&w and with a frame. I've never been a big fan of frames but this time I've added one.

The Nativity of Monsaraz attracts many visitors every year. It has around 40 real size characters, created by the sculptor Teresa Martins, that are placed all through the village. You can find them in the most amazing places. There are beggers sitting on the stairs of the church, a woman taking water from the well, women and children in the streets... If we follow their direction, we'll find the nativity scene.
I found this one sitting on a bench, near the wall of the castle.

I'm posting this photo to Marie Louise (maloutim), who likes this event a lot.
