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.

    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.

    Inspiring... I want to do a painting of it.
  • Igpajo 5y

    Wow! That's just breathtakingly beautiful. I want that on my wall. Saw it used on ( and thought it was a painting.
  • O Palsson 5y

    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.
