Trip to Lisbon, Portugal
It has been a crazy busy few months so it was nice get away for a few days to Lisbon, Portugal. It was great to get back to some real warmth much like the summer we had, 28c+.
What always surprises me, even after 20 years of visiting Europe are the intense blue skies of southern Europe, but then again I am pretty much used to slate grey Northern skies (which I have to say I do quite like,...weirdo!!)
When go on a city break I try not to whizz around at high speed trying to bag every tourist attraction, I like to do a bit of a walking tour and get a feel for a city. Even so it is still exhausting, 30 miles covered in 3 days, with numerous pit stops I may add!!
I am often torn between having a break from photography, just enjoying being away or trying to photograph as much as possible and get yet another set of images that look like any other stock images. I really have started taking more considered images whilst away and not the usual tourist stops that everyone else is photographing. I try to get something a bit different, not always succeeding but at least trying.
Enough of this rambling, here are some pictures for Lisbon
