Lisbon, through the lens

I had been in Lisbon a day and had tweeted a few pictures. A friend responded by saying, “Check out Alfama. You have to get lost there at least once.” I smiled because that’s exactly what had happened that day. I found Alfama and got very lost, as I did in other places around Lisbon during my sojourn there. And it was wonderful. Almost every hideaway and turning and hill was an invitation to explore – be it another set of gloriously coloured houses, a different setting to take a photo of the iconic number 28 yellow tram, a new vantage point overlooking yet another stunning view, or something else that simply stirred my curiosity. For the most part, I never thought to consider where I had been, only what was to come. And what came I sought to capture in pictures. A small selection of these are provided below.
