The Restroom at the Convent

Sintra, Portugal

A two holer!!!
The Convent was illuminated with these string lights.
You can see them here going in and out of each hole.
Without the lights it was very dark in there.
The cork can been seen on the ceiling here too.

Not up to modern standards, but "any port in a storm" they say. Neat shot of the facilities. V

Interesting WC Jane.

Rustic but would get the job done. Is the dugout for a bath tub? Great shot! V

The local rapscallions will have a hard time trying to push that outhouse over. Great capture.

I think I'd choose going in the woods over this! Great lighting and composition of this grim structure.
Colin Storey29-May-2018 16:58
Great control of the light here.

Soesn't get much more rustic than this. Like the textures and admire the exposure. Perfect for those one on one conversations! "V"

Perfect for a very short rest and for shooting an image like this-one

Austere and Spartan... Superb patterns and pale tones revealed by the light. V.

This is a brilliant capture of these details.
It is such a fascinating look at history and makes me thankful for modern times!

certainly a spacious facility...it must have been dark and cold, so perhaps a bit of company was welcome..

Clearly you had to be tough to be a nun.
barbarajoy29-May-2018 12:33
Agree with all, but a superb capture Jane! V
Neil Marcus29-May-2018 12:11
You had to have faith to live like that...

Oh my!

Its a pretty grim rest room compared to modern standards lol. But I bet the cork kept the drafts out a bit..BV
