Last week I was in Lisbon for 2 days and had a wonderful time. Stayed in a hotel in the Rossio area. Had so much fun, the city is beautiful. Took the Hop On Hop Off and walked around and ate good food. Would like to return. People are so friendly.

Was there when 5000 Germans came to the city to watch the Sporting vs Schalke. It was rowdy near where I stayed, but so much fun.

Great picture! I like the point of view, the pattern of the stones and also their colour, and how you put the working men each one in a corner of the photo. Congrats!

You are a master of composition, great perspective! While labor intensive, at least you don't need huge machinery to scrape and repave the road- just a few masters with brooms and patience.

Back-breaking work but it must be satisfying when they see their finished job, JM!

Nice view for the shot.

Perfect perspective, JM. Laying complex patterns seems to be a skill that has been preserved in Portugal.

It must be very hard work, but the cobbled streets or pavements are very pretty and so Portuguese!

Love the point of view, the textures, the colors. It has a yin-yang quality to it.
