The story behind the image
In a previous post I’ve shared a photo of the lagoon near Alvor in Portugal. That post already shows how Alvor has changed over the decades. Here’s another proof.
A shot from the dunes across the lagoon towards north-east, with the tiny harbour of Alvor and a few boats. A lovely scenery, especially considering the late afternoon sun.
Today, there’s a large marina like so many others, and the charm captured in this photo is gone.
As I’ve written before, I can understand the need and desire to further develop a village and create job opportunities and income for the community members. But I have to say that I liked the place much more in the past.
