Although the travelling on public transport is much cheaper, this historical red tramcar tour allows you to know the most picturesque neighborhoods of Lisbon in a friendly and comfortable way, while listening to the commentary available in several languages or melancholic melody of fado music. You will pass the narrow and steep streets of the city’s traditional quarters. You will see chatting people on doorsteps and feel the village atmosphere of Alfama and Mouraria and reveal a sharp contrast to the elegant, noble buildings of Chiado and Lapa. You will certainly fall in love with Lisbon and sooner or later you will come back……

Lisbon is famous for its old tramcars and this seems to be a fine example. The tram is well placed in the frame and then we have this wonderful long perspective down the street behind. A very appealing daily life image pleasantly lit and with very good colours and clarity.

did not need to know who posted this, it just had to be yours :-). A superbly composed and executed shot that benefits so beautifully from the perspective and light here in this stylish presentation.
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

This do me think at the fifties in Brussels Belgium as child these nice old tram, where the backside was open.
Colours and sharpness make these picture attractive.
Excellent composition, also a very well angle with depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.

A superb picture. The perspective is very good with one of the tram lines anchored to the corner. Great clarity.
Kind Regards, Ann

Excellent portrait of this period piece. But I wonder if you could have waited another second or so before you tripped the shutter. Never mind, it's still a good shot, with the street surprisingly empty of people. Siesta time?

Un très beau cadrage vertical avec ce vieux tramway en vedette. Il prend la place principale dans le cadrage on on voit bien l'environnement urbain.

nice the view of the historical red tramcar in the empty road of the capital.I like the creative perspective as the excellent light management of the scene.

this is a very elegant urban picture. You adjusted the perspectives to the vertical frame very skillfully, the cityscape is described by bold lines and marvelous details. I admire the balanced way in which you managed the light, sunny and shady areas have retained their qualities and their clarity and contrast are so effective. There's ample foreground and a clear view to the most distant background too. I also like the addition of the man walking towards the foreground as well as the touch of bright colour on the left. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

bel taglio verticale e bella prospettiva, c'è molta profondità. Il tram è in bella mostra al centro dell'immagine, sono molto interessanti e piacevoli questi vecchi mezzi di trasporto.

Les tramways de Lisbonne attirent les photographes. Encore faut-il avoir ton sens du cadrage et de la composition pour en faire une aussi attrayante photo! belle gestion de la lumière également.

Quintessential Lisbon image, the tram emblematic of that beatiful city. I like the patterns in the foreground.
Have a nice weekend

This almost has the effect of natural colour-popping as the red tram brings it alive to the street scene A well timed shot from an impressive view point, great light and I love the long perspective, Great capture, TFS

i remember seeing this photo yesterday and i loved it, as i do now.
its so attractive to see the pale blue sky above, with the darkened road below.
and of course the cable car with the wires is an awesome subject in any country.
well done with the lighting
