Lisbon vegetable & fruit market

By maggieh
Up until October my daughter had lived in Lisbon for 4 years, she has now moved to Villa Real. These were taken on one of my walkabouts in Lisbon just before she moved.

V1 & V2 were taken in one of the many markets in and around Lisbon
V3 is just one of the old abandoned properties in the what were the old slums
V4 is one of the elevadore which take you up to the higher parts of Lisbon
V5 I came across this union protest in one of the squares, it was a very friendly
affair. The electrical wiring that covered the square intrigued me. Maybe for thr trams.

V3 for me Love those colours and textures
I think I would have tried to get rid of the pole in V1 ... but dont think that would be too easy

I did think about it - but thought a challenge too far.

Another great set of images and now the third trip down memory lane from uploads this am. My son-in-law is from a village outside of Lisbon a place called Alhandra ... been here many times over the last few years ....

Well done on getting the eleladore with so few people in the street !

I often left the apartment with my daughter as she set off for the university. Once in the centre of Lisbon she would go to work - I would spend a day wandering around and exploring. So I would be out quite early.

Lovely to see some of Lisbon, not a place we've been. You've given me a feel of the place and the hustle and bustle with this super set of images.

Takes me back, it's a city that I really enjoyed visiting some years ago. Somewhere I have a picture of a cockerel strutting in the street near the castle - what other Western capital city could give you that?
V3 works best for me, it's the sort of detail and contrast that I appreciate. V4 - the Elevador was I think designed by Gustave Eiffel... V5- definitely tramwires overhead.

V3 reminds me of some of the buildings in Havana, so dilapidated but so photogenic. Love the colourful market street market scene too!
