During the times of Moorish domination, Alfama constituted the whole of the city, which later spread to the West (Baixa neighbourhood). Alfama became inhabited by the fishermen and the poor, and its condition as the neighbourhood of the poor continues to this day. The great 1755 Lisbon Earthquake did not destroy the Alfama, which has remained a picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares. Lately the neighbourhood has been invigorated with the renovation of the old houses and new restaurants where Fado - Portuguese typical melancholy music - can be enjoyed....

A simple picture with a part of the washday, a little bit diagonal presentation.
Your picture is very well taken.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Lovely composition, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

J'aime beaucoup le format de l'image. Le sujet est bien mis en valeur par ce mur rose. Une image qui raconte une histoire.

One of my tricks - tilting the frame! I would have preferred lingerie to be hanging there but I guess that's for another website! Ha ha!

Well spotted details and a nicely cropped photo, very tight, and with good colours matching each other really nicely.

Although I would like to see more of the subjects, as they're a bit cut off, i do love the scene overall.
Also, we dont get to see the peachy colors very often, so thats another huge bonus to the scene.

An everyday scene turned into a very graphic composition. The colors and the tilted framing gives it dynamics yet retain some finesse and delicacy, pretty much a good evocaton of that Portuguese melancholy.
Have a nice day,
