This iReport is part of an assignment:
The Fading Beauty of Porto, Portugal
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
But even though there is a sadness in seeing these beautiful buildings crumble, they are very photogenic and make a visit to Portugal very worthwhile for photographers.
I did sometimes feel a bit uncomfortable taking the photos because the Portuguese seem to be a very proud people - with good reason - and I didn't want them to feel that I was focusing on the negative aspects of their cities. But Porto especially is a photographer's dream and I couldn't help turning my camera toward the buildings that have seen much better days.
