Martim Moniz Square, Lisbon
(That strange thing in the background is a sculpture of an undulating Chinese dragon as seen from behind)

Oh, how we suffer for our art! Great pic!

Lol, so next time will we see you kneeling behind the dragon, JM? :-)

Hilda said...

I'm sure you've done that many times!

Love the dragon even in this incomplete view. (hint, hint!)

Oh, I know that, too! To get a good photo I do a lot of things that I wouldn't do without a camera in my hand.

Your sense of humor is showing...great composition! I love the dragon, too. Perhaps macro photogs should wear those knee pads that plumbers use?
