Just some street photography from Lisbon.

I put on my cloak of invisibility one day and went out to shoot in the streets of Lisbon, Portugal.  I like these photographs.   Simple camera and lens.  Lots of feet action.  Lots of moving around.  I like being anonymous in a foreign city.  I think it's all  about the "blend in".  And a little practice.  Not great art, just snapshots that remind me of a pleasant day.  And that's a decent use of photography as well.

Is the shopping bag inside out in the 2nd shot or did you print it backwards? Do you ever do things like that to improve composition?

Nice! I love wandering around with my camera in a foreign city. Btw what gear did you use?

I don't have much to say about the photos other than I like them but it is nice to see Lisbon; a very underated city (at least by Canadians). It has been along time; I may have to go back soon.

Robert, Inadvertently scanned backwards. But I like the mistake...
Good catch.

Whoah, the guy jumping into the pool is one great moment captured !! How long did you have to wait before the jump?

Great stuff! I love the violin player. Beautiful imagery. Street photography in places with character and history is just wonderful!
