A few weeks ago I went to Lisbon with the college. We’d looked up load of things to go and see beforehand so I decided to practice my photography while I was there. Last week I put up the photos from the first two days. Here are the photos from the last couple of days.
I much prefer these ones. On the Wednesday, my class went to the aquarium. I didn’t fancy it so I took a walk along the front to the huge bridge across the bay and saw all sorts of interesting things. Then on the Thursday my tutor and I took a walk around the older parts of town which was great for photos. Enjoy!
I have literally no idea what this is, but it looks cool.
Amazing stonework figures
One of my fellow students, Onwe, wanted a photo with the policemen carrying machine guns. Apparently they were patrolling because there were gypsys around pickpocketing people.
These guys were disassembling scaffolding impressively fast!
This is the longest bridge in Europe. I looked it up when I got back and the part near the end where it changes height is actually only the middle!!
Some poignant graffiti
I love symmetry and the aquarium is pretty symmetrical!
I met these media students on a stroll along the front and helped them with their project!
This is a train station. I’m starting the really enjoy taking photos of cool buildings.
We were told that the local speciality is custard tarts (although the locals don’t call them that and get annoyed when you do) so obviously we had to try them. Not sure on the tart, but the coffee was great.
This is the coffee shop where I had the custard tart. There were also loads of photos of people from all over the world that had visited the cafe.
I love how tight the streets are in the old town with the trams bombing around way too fast.
A really nice tiled murial on an even better riding spot!
This was an odd part of town. It was just before we got to St Georges castle which is ridiculously touristy, yet this part felt so run down.
A giant pizza oven? This was in the castle grounds.
No way out
The standard of graffiti here is crazy. The only place I’ve seen better is in Norway.
Washing hung out to dry in an alley.
There were some really interesting things in the cinema museum. I’d love to have a go shooting on this Arri
I loved seeing this. I would love to have a go at editing film on it

Neil, my tutor, almost knocked this stack of film canisters over…

We’d researched this church with no roof before we went but stumbled on it by mistake on the last day

The best weather was on the last day
I love taking photos of things like this. You could never plan it.
This was the last photo I took on the trip. I love all these little alleyways. So picturesque.
