Travel theme: Above

After walking up a series of steep roads to St. George’s Castle in Lisbon I could see and admire these springtime views of the city.  Sometimes a challenging walk is worth it!  As I looked around there were dramatic changes in the scenery, from rooftops to a bridge and then the water.

This arch provided an interesting way to frame the city below.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

There were lots of examples of patterns in Lisbon, Portugal.  First I noticed this building with colorful tiles, and as I was walking I saw a pattern in the sidewalk.  Although different they were both very interesting.

I also noticed the pattern on a rooftop (and the brick wall) when I was looking out on the city from St. George’s Castle.
