What an amazing contrast between the installation and the architecture of the square. Room for many divergent opinions!

What a fountain! It's certainly worth a shot or two.

Superb views and those abstract structures near the fountain are wonderful !

Woody said...

Great how you've captured the air sculpture from a distance, it really contrasts the old buildings.

Whatever high spot you took these pictures from JM really shows Lisbon to be a beautiful city, the fountain is magnificent. The installation is just so quirky, love it!!

Tanya said...

I understand WHY so many people are visiting your country.

I love all the red rooftops. Could live without the balloon-y things. Although it must be an interesting exhibit. And it's good to try things out of the ordinary. :)

You are a really good photographer, beautiful images!

Sharon said...

I'm sitting here hoping that this event makes it over here. What an amazing piece. And, you've photographed it just beautifully.

I love these ultra modern artworks mixed within the historical context. I never ever get a strong urge to go to visit a large metropolitan area, until I see your photos from cities in Portugal !!

I do love being able to see the contrasts between the air sculpture and the old architecture! Fantastic! And such a gorgeous fountain!! I really love that! Superb captures/composition as always, JM! Have a lovely evening!

You have some wonderful shots!

A praça é linda. O que você pensa disso, do novo conviver com o velho, no sentido da arquitetura, e de propostas novas, mesmo que passageiras, em locais históricos? Vi muito disso pela Itália, praças históricas servindo de ¨palco¨ para shows.

The wonderful square is not really improved by this, but I would like to explore the thing!

I know it's not your intention but I love the view of the city! The photo below, inside (LSD) is fantastic! That looks like a lot of fun too.

I'm loving it more and more!

I'm just sitting here staring at these gorgeous photos...like so many have said, the view across the rooftops is mesmerizing. The Square and the fountain and the art installation - well, it would be wonderful to see in person! But with your photos, we get a sense of what this was all about!

Pat said...

What a beautiful place! I love the red tiled roofs!

Jack said...

What a square! You live in a wonderful place.

Love the roof-top scnes JM but not sure about the abstract shapes... it doesnt fit the lovely old town

orvokki said...

Brilliantly presented, this series if the installation, JM... from the inside, to close capture outside, to the long view. What a contrast between the Miracoco installation and Rossio Square architecture.
