Garden on the Beach

I was going through some older pictures looking for images to use in one of my final projects and I came across this picture I took of a little garden of palms and various succulents someone had laid out around the remnants of a wooden boat on a largely deserted stretch of beach in southern Portugal:

I have no idea who created this little landscape in such a tough environment - sandy, hot, arid, and constantly exposed to salt spray - but I find its improvised, hardscrabble aesthetic very intriguing.


  1. Could have been someone kind and considerate , to the beach and to the public.


Thanks for stopping by!
