  1. Hi Belita, three wonderful shots for our group. I like the two men up top, a picture of a portrait for 3 Euros. The stuffed chickens are lovely and very cute. The bottom one is my favorite because of the couple on the left, and then, just above them, a different couple reflected. And then the contrast with the group in the white chairs. I really enjoy that.

  4. Hi Belita!! Three great takes for Debby's theme!! great shot of the sketch-artist and his subject. I like the look of concentration on the artist's face. Love those funky chickens in the second shot!!! Good third shot, not only of the couple, but also the reflections on other folks in the windows.

  6. Wow, I love the tile work in the first shot. So cool. I'm sure there has to be a story behind that. Nice capture of the artist and subject.

    Cute, colorful ma and pa chickens! My grandmother would have loved these for her kitchen!

    I love how in that last shot of the couple walking down the street, the guy turns and looks at you, Like, "yeah, I know I'm hot!" But you were only shooting at the reflections in the window! (That would have been my excuse if he had complained!)

  7. Thanks all for the comments!
    Deb, that design of pavement dates from the mids of XIX century and then spread throughout the city of Lisbon and others. Such and other designs are also seen in Portugal's former colonies, with the 'wide sea' design seen in Rio de Janeiro's promenades, and even in one of Macau's main squares.
    This 'art' was also used in New York's Central Park's tribute to John Lennon, and in the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in New Jersey.
