Cascais & Lisbon, Portugal
Pictures from the small town Cascais just outside of Lisbon, Portugals remarcable capital city. Also featured are some shots from Lisbon itself, which is a very fotogenic subject as it is very very pretty.
A portuguese seagull preparing for take off! This shot is actually a pretty cool one, as it was taken at only 16mm focal length. This means, that I must have been not more distant than a couple of cm!
A common view in Portugal are houses full of tiles. Rather than painting them, the locals prefer to tile them in order to make their house facades more resistable against the abrasive salt from the the windy atlantic ocean.
View from Portugals "Neuschwanstein" castle, as it is described in the guide books. In reality the castle has been built when Portuegese power in Europe (and the world for arguments sake) was already on the decline. However, of course it is built in a pretty location and the castle itself has some noticable tweeks and corners.
Now that I'm married, I absolutely need one of these shirts. And a belly. And a bum bag. And sandals.
Now that I think about it, this is the man suiting clichés like no one else...! This is a great picture!
No, the title is absolutely not relevant. But the credit card in questions actually plays a minor role: Just after taking this shot, I found one lying on the floor in front of me. It was one issued by the Banco Espirito Santo. And yes, before you ask - of course I took it back (before buying myself a great dinner, not!)
