View from the train window, with the huge statue of Cristo Rei visible in the horizon.

This is our most modern train (it even has an upper floor!). It had been a few years since I had crossed the Tagus river by train, that passes below the 25 De Abril bridge.

View to the well known Areeiro tower in Lisbon.

Hello guys, I haven't (photo)blogged as much as I wanted these days, due to the lack of time. I'm glad to know you're out there taking more pictures of life around you. I just found out about pinhole cameras and I suppose I won't get any rest until I get one (although I have forgotten completely how to use film...). Anyway, just posting some more pictures where I've tried to simulate that effect.

Just trying to take pictures at night again... Quite a long way to go yet, until anything watchable is ready...

I've used my ultra zoom camera to get this picture, from my parents home, near Alvalade. This apartment block was posh and fancy in the 1950's, and seriously needs some restoration. But I wonder if it's still possible, as the owners have completely changed the architecture in some balconies, covering some of them with bricks and doing very little to disguise them from the outside...

Wouldn't it be nice to have an apartment in this building? Unlike in Madrid, such doors in the balconies are quite uncommon in Lisbon - as are buildings with such architecture. This one is in Campo Grande, just in front of the park and the main avenue.
