Very beautiful city with a lot of character and charm. You can kinda tell that Portugal is in decline just by looking at the state of the streets and buildings. Kind of reminds me of Detroit.

Wrong parallelism with Detroit, those buildings are not abandoned just demonstrate centuries of life, simply beautiful.

those buildings are not abandoned like in Detroit and their shape don't have anything to do with crisis. we just have a serious problem with old rents, the owners don't get enough money to make "building repairs"

Thanks you a lot for the pictures, the city is amazing and charming, and being a bit run down gives it some character which you don't find in some other European cities. I absolutely love those old trams! We used to have a lot of them here in Montevideo until the fifties, I wish they had kept them, it adds a lot to the charm of the city.

You have very beautiful photos! Can I ask what camera you use and what setting you put it to? I really would like to take similar photos. Your photos have a very lovely quality to them!

One thing I notice about Lisbon is that a lot of the buildings have graffiti on them. I think nearly every building has some form of it somewhere. Though it's a lovely city nonetheless with very nice meandering laneways!

Thanks, I have a Nikon D5100 and I mostly use the P mode with variable ISO and the shade option under white balance since I find that to be the safest option when you are travelling and only have a few days in each city (you don't want to be experimenting around with your camera in those situations)

I then use silkypix 5 to make some minor adjustments to brightness and contrast

They were old and in a bad state. Instead of repairing them they chose to replace them with electric buses, which were later replaced with regular buses. Forever going backwards
I hope some day we will have trams again, new ones for the city and some restored old trams for the old city. But that's just me dreaming, I doubt it may ever happen in the near future.
