The heart of Lisbon, Rossio is the liveliest square in the city, where people stop to sit and relax, or for a drink at the several atmospheric cafes with outdoor sitting. In the 19th century the square was paved with cobblestones in wave patterns, a design seen today in many other pavements all over Portugal.

Hi May Jayne. A different "wave" from your Gaudi stairway. Very effective composition, great clarity of the textured pattern. The light is just right where the details are illuminated but not lost. Best wishes. Klaudio.

I would assume its pretty hard to resist photographing these snake like patterns of cobblestone isn't it!
even in the harsh wight light they look good!
smart looking photo due to the false sense of movement.
enjoy your day

Wonderful display of this mosaic pattern. The waves gives the photo a fell of movement.

When in Portugal, I was captivated by this pavement. It actually felt like it was moving. Nicely captured.

L'effet graphique est très réussi. La prise de vue est très efficace avec cette vue en plongée. Il y a une belle lumière qui fait reluire les pavés. J'aime beaucoup.

an artistic and beautifully captured shot this. Love the effect of the light and the wonderful textures it brings out on the stone work. Compelling and fascinating image! Well seen and presented.
Have a great week - Brian.

Wow - I see you have been to Portugal! Probably my favourite country I have ever visited. This is a great classic shot from there, the graphical sensibilities are fantastic.
