The spring is coming

Praça de Aliados, Porto city center, Portugal.

A story behind: The scent of Magnolia tree flowers greets the coming spring. Their life span in short, a week - maybe two, a photographer must hurry up to take a picture before the pristine white and pink petals start they rapid but still elegant decay. The photo was taken during a mid-day stroll around the Porto center on Friday. PS. Thank you Amadeu and Otilia ( a couple of ultra-friendly Portuguese photographers I met ) for making this moment unforgettable. Location: Porto, Portugal.
