Funny we never think of showing the bad side of town.. but in a way--what a great shot. MB

I agree with Brattcat, it is a wonderful, gritty composition and definitely the darker side of Oeiras, but all cities have those places! Definitely not a place I'd want to spend an evening! Terrific capture, however, as always. Hope your week is off to a great start!

It makes the graffiti tolerable!
(Thanks for telling me about my visual problem. I could see them OK from my side. I'll re-enter them.)

It may be dirty but it sure is a beautiful photograph. Great find!

Someone really skilled painted it!

Jarart said...

Poor kitty.

Amin said...

Beautiful photograph...

This is ugly! Would make a good photo illustration on a murder mystery book set in Lisbon, though!

The underbellies of our cities are not happy places!

The cat is OK to me! (I'm rather fond of street art.) ... but the tagging no!

Cildemer said...

Excellente!
He he he! O gato parece dizer: "Smelly street! Yam yam!"

This is good stuff, both by the original artist and the photographer.

Photo Cache said...

This post made me smile. I heart cats.

Jack said...

This is actually a pretty good change of pace from other photos you have been posting. It reminds us that every city or town has grittier sections.

Dirty street, but cool shot!

Joan Elizabeth said...

I can see why you chose to photograph it ... an alley cat.

Cezar and Léia said...
