Photographer's Note

I'm pretty sure we all recognize this structure in Lisbon, even if you haven't travelled here.

Even if it has been photographed a million times, I havn't photographed it yet and we all need to have these subjects in our our personal galleries right? Same goes with the Eiffel tower.

When I arrived in Lisbon, this was one of my first stops, first destinations I wanted to see. You get here from taking one of the trams, about a 30 min ride. This location has 4 major sights to see - The Monuments of Discoveries (ths one), Torre de Belem, the New Museum of Modern Art, and the massive Monastery Mosteiro dos Jeronimos. To see these 4 sights, you need basically a full day, so it will keep you busy for sure. I wanted to get these 4 done quickly, then focus in on the downtown Lisbon area.

It was disappointing in that the tower portion was closed on this day, and for a number of days following due to renovations. I was looking forward to climbing up to the top and capturing city views, oh well, that's life I guess, it doesn't always go as planned.

It was however, a fun day, a fun experience, and i"m glad its been taken off of my bucket list. Capturing these two young ladies relaxing seemed like the best idea photo wise, I hope you like it as much as I do.
