I thought the name was unusual, until I looked it up. It's a good idea to name something used everyday like that to make sure the memory stays alive.

You've shown us some beautiful shots of the this bridge, I like this new perspective very much.

Good strong shot JM, so apparently this bridge is very much like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is that right?

Halcyon said...

I like this angle on the bridge.

Terrific capture, JM, and I agree with Woody that something like this is a great way to keep the memory alive -- I, too, looked it up! Have a great week!

This is an impressive structure. Let's hope there is not an earthquake like in 1755.

Creatively composed...it certainly gives off a sense of massive strength which is, of course, what one wants in a bridge!

Lovely light here, too, JM!

Andrew Fulton said...

Another wonderful image... and from a different perspective to the norm.
Nice one.

I am going to go and look it up now.

Strong composition and cool light. I hate to admit my ignorance but what does April 25th commemorate?

VP said...

One of my favorite memories in Lisbon...

@Oakland:

The Portuguese lived under Salazar's dictatorship for 48 years until a revolution took place on April 25.
