Throwback Thursday: “Lisbon”

wow, I’m coming closer to the bottom of my backlog. The pile of undeveloped images decreases. Last week, I finished another big folder. That folder contained the images taken during the carnival escape in Lisbon from February┬á2015 ­čś│­čś▓!┬áSeven years!

During our stay, I already developed a handful of images, but the majority was only moved to the to-be-done disk.

When I walked now through my images to decide which to develop, many memories came back.

  1. old architecture, Art Deco, tiled facades, tile decorations
  2. many narrow cobblestone roads
  3. trams everywhere
  4. a lot of amazing street art

In the past, I already published a few images. But in the future, you can expect more. For now, I have one of the most amazing images. Not because it shows one of the topics mentioned above. But, because of the selection of products for sale in the shop.

I know i.e. butchers, bakeries, milkmen, as well as shops selling shoes, clothing, wine, beverages, tracking or sports equipment, or shops offering only products of a certain brand. But, I’ve never seen shops before selling only gloves! Or another one selling only oil sardines, a specific kind of canned fish.

It’s not a tiny shop. But, the only product they offer is canned fish. Amazing!

Take care!

Throwback Thursday: Lisbon

This time, three years ago, I was in Lisbon. Time to remember. There are still many undeveloped images on my disk. I have an enormous backlog ­čśŽ

Carnival is a huge event in our region. I guess, I mentioned this fact several times here in my blog. With a few friends, I flee these days as often as possible. Most times, we head to the warmer south.

Take care!

Monochrome Madness 4-41

As the theme for this weeks Monochrome Madness is “Street Art” or “Grafitti”, I have a gem from Lissabon for you: this mural by Pixel Pancho.

You know, I love these kind of art and so you can find some on my hard disk. But, nearly all of these murals come to live by the colors, it’s hard to find something looking good in monochrome, too.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Wednesday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

While Leanne changed her counting from the year and week scheme to a simple counter, I stay with the old numbering. So, don’t feel┬áconfused, when checking here site ­čÖé

I’d also encourage you to participate.┬áThe conditions are ┬ápublished in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!
