Photographer's Note

From 1510 until 1961 Goa was a portuguese colony. For 451 years, the distant land of Portugal ruled Goa and created here a synthesis of Indo-Portuguese culture which pervades all facets of life : from architecture to food and liquor, from song and dance to carved furniture.
They have left behind a rich architectural legacy, churches and also houses.
Their traditional windows were made of translucent oyster shell in a wooden lattice. This provides a soft translucent light for the houses.

Hope you like it...
