Lisbon, Portugal

Last night I drank port with a Portuguese friend, and we shared our experiences of Lisbon. We agreed on the necessary long walks through Bairro Alto, the necessary fado bars in Alfama, the necessary fish markets near the sea.

I don’t always love the photos I take, but there are a few countries where I felt so happy with all of the pictures I took; I suppose some countries are more photogenic than others. Portugal was definitely one of them, as were Japan, Russia, Morocco, Vietnam, Greece, Ireland, Turkey, and France. What is your favourite place to photograph?

Gorgeous photos! I hope to visit Portugal one day. I’m no photographer extraordinaire, but I do love photographing my home, Vancouver.

Oh, Vancouver is lovely! If I ever live in Canada again I think I’d choose Vancouver or Montreal.

Thanks for your comment! I hope you get to Portugal soon…
