How can you not fall in love with Lisboa (as I did), watching photos like this! This view, a Carlos Paredes CD, a glass of vinho verde... Happiness.

What a lovely old neighborhood! Love the view! And, of course, I love to cruise also! Terrific shot as always, JM!

Such huge ships on the Tejo? I didn't know that... Must be exciting to get on a cruise!
God bless you!

Gorgeous view--you must post some pics of the pretty longlegged Tagus River pink birds. And remove the cruise ships. MB

I am captivated by this view. The whiteness of the buildings, the orange roofs against the blue of the sea and sky seen from the shadows of a cool alcove. I am constantly amazed at how well old neighborhoods are kept up in Europe. It's a totally different mindset that I so admire.

...and I was thinking that I would love this photo better without the cruise ships. Beautiful shot, JM and the balanced framing in blue is perfectly suited to the scene!

I like the roofs and the wide blue river, the cruise ships add a sense of proportion to this beautiful image.

When I lived in Sydney my bedroom window used to look out on cruise ships like that ... it was fun to dream of where they were taking people.

The view is magnificent!

Jacob said...

As I recall, Columbus and his three ships sailed out on the Tagus...right?

Another gorgeous photo with stunning colors. The ships really set it off. So many varied intersecting lines and angles. Well done, JM!

Randy said...

I'll take it! When can they be out, ha ha. That is an amazing view!

"O Tejo é mais belo que o rio que corre pela minha aldeia,
Mas o Tejo não é mais belo que o rio que corre pela minha aldeia
Porque o Tejo não é o rio que corre pela minha aldeia." [...]
