Hi dear TE friends
Place: Lisbon, Sacavém(Tagus Park)
Theme: Sacavém Medieval Fair (IV)
To see: map view
TE meeting in the Sacavem Medieval Fair with, Paulo (juntas), Aires (AiresSantos) and me.
This is my fourth picture from the Medieval Fair in Sacavém
The Medieval Fair of Sacavém. The rows of market stalls, where practical and decorative items made in the spirit of the Middle Ages are sold, create the real feeling of a fair. Along with the public, over a fifty actors, numerous musicians, dancers, beggars, victims of the plague and other performers liven up the market spirit. Outdoor reenactments performed amidst the public bring to the stage noblemen and peasants, clergymen, merchants, artisans and jesters. The displays by master craftsmen and apprentices, provides an insight into traditional medieval handicrafts. Also local traditional gastronomy will served in a true medieval atmosphere.
About: Sacavém is a Portuguese city and parish , in the municipality of Loures, just a few kilometers northeast of the Portuguese capital, Lisbon. The parish covers an area of 3.81 km², with a population of 17,659 inhabitants.
Sacavém was very well-known for its famous ceramics.
I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends

Fights which do not seem to me very violent but which are a success for the visitors who appear to appreciate the spectacle… A good framing on this medieval scene with this torch on the right which gives much of depth to the image, contrasts give punch to the composition. Interesting glance, thank you Filipe.
With all my friendships and a very good week,

Hello Filipe, last year I attended several medieval fairs in Queluz and Obidos. However, I didn't see this one in Sacavem. I think, medieval combats seem to be much more fair than todays dirty wars.
Best regards, Tolga

Good composition of this Middle Age scene. A sequence of Europeans history is played for tourists and gives us back our history. Vibrant color hues with high sharpness too. Well done
Thanks for your critique of my extended Family shot from Kuala Kedah - in some countries it is custom that a whole family lives under one roof. That also was the case in Europe many decades ago.

Ces guerriers en armure font la joie des enfants et des amoureux de l'histoire. C'est beaucoup plus parlant que des gravures.
Belle réalisation !
humayun (3105) 2010-06-05 17:55
good looking and sample image.....
gildasjan (43824) 2010-06-06 0:28
Belle image contrastée de cette fête médiévale avec ces couleurs bien claquantes.

Boa vista geral do evento. Melhor só com chama nesse archote à direita.
UlfE (14641) 2010-06-06 8:56
An excellent composition. Your inclusion of the large torch is really attractive. I also like the shadows of the rope with flags that is cordoning off the arena. Lovely strong colours and attractive lighting. TFS and have a nice Sunday evening!
raszid62 (18515) 2010-06-07 1:20
Bom, apesar de uma imagem pouco estática de um torneio de cavaleiros. Excelentes cores e nitidez.

El lugar donde se va a celebrar la lucha es bonito, con su césped verde que contrasta con el cielo.
Excelente encuadre y óptima definición.

Didi (60590) 2010-06-09 3:31
Nice place for a medieval feast, lights are very good
Perhaps it was interesting also to zoom more on the scene
skippy007 (12510) 2010-06-09 4:20
Hello Filipe, An interesting image from Sacavem in Sacavem, well chosen POV, full of colour, excellent light & depth. These type of combats always attract a good crowd, atmosphere is well captured.

mkamionka (39805) 2010-06-17 2:14
nice "action" photo. Plenty of color. Happy crowd around. I guess you will show us what happened next: may be some photos after the blood was all around the place ;)
clic (18274) 2010-06-28 13:04
The blood-thirsty crowd is wheting its appetite while nights seem puling faces at each-other before the combat!
A colourful and grandiose recreation of by then.
batalay (40203) 2010-08-20 1:40
This is a very colorful recreation of the medieval art of jousting, augmented by an excellent note. The combination makes a useful TE-contribution.
Juntas (7960) 2010-09-20 6:20
Olá Filipe. Boa perspectiva da Feira Medieval de Sacavém com boas cores e excelente definição. Gosto do pormenor da tocha do lado direito. Como estive lá :), acho esta cena um pouco parada e que podias ter dado um ar mais de luta. Um abraço.
Longroute (19396) 2010-11-03 13:21
Ah ah! not an every day spectacle!
Interesting to see those ancient warriors and the whole scene is very colourful. I guess you had a nice time there with Paulo and Aires. You have framed well the scene and the clarity is excellent.
fritzi007 (12142) 2010-12-04 9:44
