Staircase with a road name


On my way back to my Lisbon lodging, I walked through the Afalma part of the city, late at night. Still some photo ops.

This is fabulous, Louis, and easily conjures up a sense of a night stroll.
Louis: Thank you kindly, Ray
A great sense of perspective--cinematic...
Louis: Thank you Larry
You certainly handled the light and composition well!
Louis: Thanks for the kind comment, Elizabeth.
Brilliant, Louis!
Louis: Wow, thanks Ginnie

Very atmospheric Louis but somebody's taking no chances with that barred window
Louis: Thanks Chris. They probably got tired of drunks coming to sleep in their house.
nice time of the night for a walk and i like it that you have it all to yourself, Louis.
Louis: The only other people I met, were people peddling green stuff and couples returning to their lodgings.

I hope you kept safe, Louis
Louis: The only way I know how, Lisl. Be friendly with the hash peddlers.

I like the way we feel drawn in to the street at the end of this passage.
Louis: In Ireland I saw similar pedestrian streets and I thought the mailman will have his work cut out.
The sort of steps that are easier to walk down than struggle up.
Louis: That is why I spent some time on hills at the beginning of this series. My best advice is to find an easy way to the top and then stroll down, with a good map.
Well done, Louis. I like the monotone treatment.
Louis: Thank you Mary. The monotone is actually thanks to the street lighting.
Half expect to see Harry Lime
Louis: He would be too old for these steps by now, I think, Bill.

This is well done, I have to say 'outstanding' what a wonderful view and I love the light and the golden glow. That is quite the staircase.
Louis: Thank you Astrid. Taken free hand and without a flash, to preserve the available light and glow, as it was.
Very nice, Louis. It invites a photograph.
Louis: Thank you Frank - so it did.

Wonderful night shot - it sets a foreboding mood.
Louis: Thank you Beth. Foreboding looks, but perfectly safe.
Magnifique photo ..incroyable cette descente !
Louis: Je vous remercie, Claudine/canelle. Lisbonne est plein de descentes et montées, comme celui-ci.
