From the pictures it appears to be one of the most visually attractive systems in the world. Wow! Love it.

No, not anymore. Yet, the Carmo Trolley still runs. Even though it hadnīt been operating for some years, it was introduced once again last year.

These minimalistic stations with their interesting lighting should provide lots of opportunities to shoot great photos, I wonder why nobody is just doing it.

Since when is this a photo competition for professionals?
The pics are awesome and are posted just for what it's intended to: to show everyone interested one of the most comtemporary and efficient light rail subway system in the world.

It's just strange that from most metro systems of the world you can find at least a few excellent photos on the Internet but not so from Porto. But I'll visit sometime and try to make some shots that satisfy me.

How about restrictions? Is a permit necessary to take photos?

I think there is no restriction, unless you begin taking photos of equipment, machinery or security cameras.

Hey, not bad. If it was you who took the photos, try to capture the glass and the rays of light and the straight lines in the station architecture.

No, I didn't take them, although I tried finding some that could please demanding forumers like yourself , which is a good thing though. I'll keep your advice in mind next time I do take photos.

Then I hope you don't mind if I give you another advice: A few passengers in the photos are okay but try to avoid the masses
