Photographer's Note


After a walk in Carcavelos Beach, I've headed towards the fort and saw the couple sitting on the rocks and the fisherman. I was focusing on the couple when the big wave came and made the fisherman ran. After a while he came up again and stood there with his arms crossed. It seemed that he was saying to the waves: "Come back, I'm here" (WS1).
Later, he managed to sit back and relax and enjoy his fishing (WS2).
Many accidents happen to fishermen because they defy the sea; beware and stay safe.

The Fort of Saint Julian's Bar is located at the tip of St. Julian, on the right bank of the Tagus river in the town of Oeiras, and parish of St. Julian of Barra, Oeiras, Distrito de Lisboa, Portugal.
Considered in the past as the Shield of the Kingdom, the largest marine fortification in the country, is the largest and most comprehensive military defense complex in Vauban style remaining in Portugal. Had originally, in conjunction with the Fort of St. Lawrence the Monkey, who cooperated, the function of controlling the entry and exit of vessels on the bar of the Tagus river and access to the port of Lisbon.
Today is the official residence of the Minister of National Defence of Portugal.
