Contrast


Alcântara, Lisbon

Decayed building (late 19th/early 20th century?) under the 25th of April Bridge (1966), which connects Lisbon to the Tagus River south bank. The red iron structure is the railway added in 1999.

The bridge looks a lot stronger than the old house (thankfully).
What a photo!

What a charming facade.

A study in contrasts...and how nice that all the color tones seem to key together. Nice shot!

The buildings may be decayed but they look to still be occupied. One of my strongest memories of my single visit to Lisbon was the staggering traffic jam approaching the bridge's toll gates from the south.

I don't think I would sleep in a building under a bridge.

Old and new sometimes works well together!

A clever angle to show the contrast. Must be a bit noisy in those appartments.
