Scenes from Lisbon

As I finished working on the last of my Lisbon images and prepared to move on to another photo project, it was like saying goodbye to Portugal for the second time.   Quiet, humble and reserved, but friendly and welcoming at the same time, Portuguese people seem to have just the right attitude for me. There's nothing flashy or pretentious about Lisbon, not that I could see anyway.  It amazes me how you can land in a different country, one you have never visited before, and be overcome by the thrills of a completely disorienting way of life or the relaxing feeling of being perfectly at ease somewhere new. Both experiences are, for me, incredibly inspiring but in Lisbon, it was definitely the latter.
