Porto’s Old World Skyline

By Gail Aguiar @ImageLegacy

Porto, Portugal

I remember seeing Porto’s skyline from the river for the first time during my birthday week in June 2011. I felt like I’d stepped in a time machine. I still feel that way, more than four years and thousands of photos later. Looking at these pictures and not zooming in for details of vehicles and such, the only giveaway that they were taken in modern times is the crane. Contrast that with the skyline of my previous home, Toronto1
