Those who travel by train or subway inevitably stares outside the window, observing the images of the landscape that rapidly fade away, while getting lost in their thoughts. Photography is used here not only as a means of artistic expression, but also, as a tool that aids in the study of the transformation of the territory. In this essay, I intend to study a place where the new urbanity dialogs with nature and the pre-existence. The objective of this essay is to build the memory of Vila do Conde's old railway line, documenting its existence and at the same time an attempt to recreate the images and the atmosphere lost in the memory of the "I" passenger always in confrontation and contrast with the material reality, as well as, the atmosphere of the current place.
