Hard Rock? Say it ain't so.
Oi, that's a tight squeeze in between the two interesting buildings. A very "uplifting" photo. :)Our flock of Jerusalem cranes sends greetings to the cranes of Oeiras.
It is... Formerly a wonderful theater named Condes (you can see the 'ES' of the old sign) built 1950, to replace the one built in 1882, which has replaced the original (1772).
It's nice that Lisbon takes such great care of these gorgeous old buildings!
JM, cranes are also becoming a familiar site in Bermuda. Years ago, it would have been unthinkable. A four story building, ten years ago, would have been considered a skyscraper!
Here, too some cranes are seen, sadly they are to turn down some buildings. And what's that building next to Hard Rock? Weekend's coming, have a nice weekend :).
We had a lot of those "birds" in our town a couple of years ago, but with the economic slowdown, they migrated elsewhere.

I was about to say the same thing as B Squared. Hard Rock places are starting to get as common as McDonald's. Well....not quite, but almost.
I admire the people who operate these monster machines. I also admire people who make beautiful photos, like you.
The way you've composed this, the crane seems entirely at home in this setting. Well done.
Here's the same JM!Your photo is superb, crane goes pretty well with those amazing buildings:)Have a nice weekend.
I'm just happy that they are restoring the old buildings. In lots of places, they simply blow them up and start over with some modern absurdity!A great photo composition, JM. That building on the right is simply gorgeous...and the Hard Rock Cafe...well, I like the sculpures on the building!
That's the price of renovation:)I like the reliefs on the building on the left:)
Agree with Tanya. Very nice that restoration work is taken seriously in there. Not to mention jobs it creates...God bless you!Cezar
More juxtaposition of old and new. What an interesting city.
It doesn't have to be an old city to be filled with cranes. The skyline of ours is filled with them ... building new buildings.
I'm just glad the city's taking care of its old, gorgeous buildings! I think I'd like to see some of those cranes in old Manila.
It is good to know that these beautiful buildings are being renovated.
A bit like London then, there are cranes at every turn.
A nuisance whe it goes on, but so nice that old nice buildings are saved!
B SQUARED comment made me chuckle.Anyway, it's good to have these old buidling renovated.
