Lisbon Tram- which version do you prefer?

In b. Abstract/Arty by admin / May 19, 2015 / 4 Comments


The lively city of Lisbon operates a delightful tram network of quaint old trams that lurch and screech around the narrow streets of the capital. The photo below, Lisbon Tram, was taken with my HTC One smartphone on an enjoyable night out (what other kinds of nights out are there in Lisbon?) It proves the old photography phrase that the best camera you have is the one you have on you. The different effects were done very quickly and simply using Flickr’s built in editor.

For me this image captures the spirit of a Lisbon; nightlife, relaxed people, the tram, graffiti and steep roads. I’ve only been to Lisbon once but already I’m looking forward to visiting again and would recommend it to anyone; lively city, lovely people, good nightlife, warm weather and a beach.
Which version of the photo do you prefer and why?

    Lisbon Tram, Portugal

    I have a very enjoyable weekend break in Lisbon, Portugal recently. A friend of mine, Micky T, was lucky enough to move over there with work and now enjoys 330+ days of rain free sunshine! I’d like to visit again and spend more time with my camera wandering around Lisbon; it’s an extremely old city but it home to a labyrinth of side-streets, old run-down buildings but also beautiful squares, a Moorish castle overlooking the city (Castle of São Jorge) and an old,but massively popular with tourists, tram network.

    I didn’t get to take as many photos as I’d like to but I really like this; it captures tourists, the famous Lisbon tram, old buildings and street lights (and even a small bit of blue sky). Lisbon is a cheap, vibrant and even happens to be on the beach. Hopefully next year I’ll post again with more photos from my next photo.
