These buses are so much fun! The building behind it looks like a classic structure.

Must be lunch time. I've ridden on these sightseeing buses three times. Once in London many, many years ago and once in New York City about eleven years ago and the last time in Oxford England about eight years ago. You can learn a lot about the lay out of a city by taking one of these rides.

Excellent composition, JM!

I 'blinked' when I saw the thumbnail thinking it must be an 'England' shot. What a beautiful building and all we need is to get some tourist on that bus so they can enjoy the sights of Lisbon...me included!!!!!

Have a happy week.

Terrific composition, JM. I like the street marking in the foreground as well as the bright red bus and elegant pink building.

What a stunning Baroque building, and fun contrast with the bright red (modern) bus.

Another of your superb compositions. That red of the bus against the pastels of the building shake things up. I love the way you included the "bus" stencil in the shot and that motor scooter giving the bus a little push!

Lowell said...

Oh, I forgot: Yes, in fact, I did pull out one of those signs and tossed it away!

That's a great composition and I love that brilliant building behind the modern sight-seeing tour bus! Great photo!

Really like the graphic feel of this, the contrast of the old and new. The red and salmon colors have a great vibe.

That red really pops against the pastel building. Lovely!
