    I snapped this photo through a bus window as this Lisbon neighborhood zoomed by. I liked the cheerful jumble of colors brightly highlighted by the morning sun.

      Karen - yes, that's one of my favorites, and one I'm proud of in part because it was taken under rather adverse circumstances - I just had a moment to capture this shot through the window as I travelled by this neighborhood in a fast-moving bus, and still managed to get a decent enough shot to it.

      I'm going to Portugal soon, do you know what this place was called?

      Prime Image - no, I'm sorry to say I have forgotten which neighborhood this is, Lisbon has several colorful areas, and I'm not that familiar with the different parts of the city.

      It's like legos! What an excellent shot! I admire you for having the instinct to take this photo from the bus.

      Thank you, 5ERG10. Yes, this was a totally accidental discovery, one of those lucky finds one sometimes makes when traveling.

      Inspiring... I want to do a painting of it.

      Wow! That's just breathtakingly beautiful. I want that on my wall. Saw it used on Wired.com (http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2010/06/most-exciting-part-of-web-isnt-world-wide/all/1) and thought it was a painting.

      Igpajo - thank you for our kind comments. Yes, a lot of people think this is a painting rather than a photo - it looks to multicolored and pattened to be a photo. That's what I really like about it. And funy you should say you want it on your wall - I had that picture enlarged and have it on my wall.
