Another one of my installments from World of Interiors magazine . You will all have to humor me on these as I have always kept these torn pages in a box for myself and now I have others to share them with. I hope you like them? I always enjoy reading the tales that accompany the images in WOI (even if a particular interior isn't to my taste). This particular article is about the fishermen of Torre d'Aires in southern Portugal. They build these seaside shacks from salvaged items found along the local shoreline and live in this little makeshift community during the fishing seasons. If you click on the images the words should be large enough to read.
This simple story really made me smile, when I was a child I spent many weekends happily building temporary camps and little houses from the old wood and salvage that my dad had stored at the end of our garden and allotment.
