Monochrome Madness 3-18


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), Panteão Nacional (the national pantheon of Portugal; the dome in the middle) and Menino Deus (church with only one tower on the right).

Take care!

I’m back …

610_2721-e_w9… from Lisbon.

During the last few days I was in Lisbon, Portugal, with a few friends.

They were some days with nice company, a lot of fun, many interesting impressions and a lot of photos.

As usually for a ‘I’m back’ post, I don’t want to write so much. But, at least I want to show you an, as in my opinion, iconic picture of one of the small, old trams running in Lisbon. They even climb up steep hills and are usually very full despite their tight schedule.

Old, but not useless and definitely a eye-catcher for tourists, but they are still in regular operation, although there are some trams dedicated to tourist round-trips.

Take care
