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 😩

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 confused, when checking here site 🙂

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at her site, to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers.

This is the quarter Alfama in Lisbon with Igreja e Convento da Graça (a convent; the large building with the two towers in the upper left), PanteĂŁo Nacional (the national pantheon of Portugal; the dome in the middle) and Menino Deus (church with only one tower on the right).

Happy Valentines Day

610_2437_wI found this in Lisbon last year. Many people set up a small metal heart and hung it on the grids. It’s a variant of the love-locks mounted on so many bridges. On every trip I do, I find places with these locks labeled with names and dates. I’s always interesting to see how old some locks are or what kind of lock the couple has chosen to symbolize their (hopefully eternal) love. For those of you, not familiar with the idea of love-locks, jump to this post on Pont de l’ArchevĂȘchĂ© in Paris, where I explained the idea.

I already posted many of these love-locks. Unfortunately I forgot to label them all correctly or included the images in regular posts. But you can find many of them by following the tag lovelock.

Take care!
