Lisbon through lens by Istok Pavlovic.

"Invited by the Nikon company, I've spent two days in Lisbon. The idea was to test two new models D7100 and Coolpix A, and this city is full of interesting places worth shooting. Bloggers and photographers from all over the world were invited and our Nikon hosts were exceptional.

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the World, but more important, it has been one of the richest for a period of time - in the mid16th century. Thanks to this, there's plenty of interesting architecture and vintage aesthetics, carefully preserved. From the city centre, situated by the ocean, there are dozens of narrow mediterranean streets going uphill. Vintage trams are very common ih these streets. One cannot imagine a tram actually passing through such a narrow and inclined street, until it really appears and starts gliding downwards slowly.

The whole Lisbon is like a small seaside town, enlarged 100 times."

But it’s romantic,

Josephine - You never told me how your parents met.
Will - They met at Auburn.
Josephine - What about the details? How they fell
in love. The Circus. The War. You
never told me any of that.
Will - That’s because most of it never
Josephine - But it’s romantic.

Há é que ter paciência

"Afinal, há é que ter paciência,
dar tempo ao tempo,
já devíamos ter aprendido,
e de uma vez para sempre,
que o destino tem de fazer muitos rodeios
para chegar a qualquer parte." 
José Saramago
