The cable cars seem to be in the clouds!
The bridge seems to go on forever.
What a great photo.

Interesting designs, so much to see.. and well composed to include all ...

Genie said...

AWESOME! This is one special photo. Not only do you give us the two contrasting bridges, but you throw in two cable car lines with cars on both and one colorful benches beneath. I would say you have composed this one perfectly and your perspective is fabulous.

This photo has so many different things in it of great
interest. The flower boxes and benches are so cheerful, and the bridge is indeed long!

This is another beautiful site I missed. I will definitely go to Portugal again! The benches reminds me of your fabulous tiles!

Sharon said...

I'd love to walk one way and take the cable gondola back! But, what I really love are all those stripes. Such a beautiful setting.

Randy said...

I agree with Kate on the boxes and benches. The color just draws you in and makes for a great photo.

There is so much to see in this picture! I think I might like to ride on the cable cars. I wonder where they would take me.

Man-made and nature-made are happily together.

Wow! A two-fer... three-fer with the tram.

@Jacob: At the end of the pedestrian bridge is the Oceanário, a wonderful public aquarium.

A wonderful image! I have already posted these benches, but I think that with a photo like this a bis is absolutely needed!

Nice echo of lines going on!

I love the striped benches. This is a great shot, full of interest with the bridge, overhead cars and stripes with a moody sky to cap it all off.
