Photo and caption by Jennifer Beverly

In Lisbon, the ceramic tiles are plentiful. Colorful scenes with beautiful designs are easy to find. But this particular window was special. It drew me in and captured my gaze. I found myself staring at it, the way you might watch a fire - illuminated by the calm.

Location: Madre de Deus Convent, Lisbon, Portugal
