Plenty of park benches...I like this park!
Louis: There are more to like - e.g. lawns where you are allowed to sit, two light meal restaurants, few tourists, playing area for kids, arboreal delights, birds and a lot of interesting people.
Some of them are on to you!
Louis: That will be the case, Elizabeth - since I am rather open with my photographic efforts.
Un endroit qui doit être bien agréable pour flâner.

Everyone has given way to the dominant pigeon..
Louis: Cheeky bird, yes, Chris
Taking time to relax and watch the world pass by!
Louis: A midday break in the park - good for the soul, Ginnie.

Is this one of those 'special' meeting places Louis?
Louis: I don't think so. Probably just workers from the area, taking a break, gutteridge. The night before as I was walking to my lodgings, in a darker street, four young men came up to me, inquiring whether they can sell me some green stuff, which they held up for inspection. I said, no, I still have plenty stock at my lodgings. After a little chit-chat, I took leave of their company and went for a well earned sleep.

This almost looks like a pen and ink drawing. Love the treatment, the pigeon steals the show......
Louis: In its colour format, I did some tone mapping and then converted it to b&w, with a dab of sepia. Yes, that pigeon. I tried to lie down in the path next to it for a close-up, but it kept walking on.
Very good style of presentation Louis.
Louis: Thank you very much, Brian.
I love the pigeon in the shot best of all.
Louis: Yes, Mary - that pigeon kept me busy as I tried for a close-up, but it just kept on walking.
Interesting graphic arts type treatment, Louis!
Louis: Thank you, Tom. In its colour format, I did some tone mapping and then converted it to b&w, with a dab of sepia.
only one pigeon!!!... do the people in Estrela park favour pigeon pie Louisgrin
i love how your treatment brought out the patterns of the trees in the park....peytersmile
Louis: Lots of birds, terrapins and things that rustle in the undergrowth. The pie most favoured as far as I could see, is the pastella de nata, which contains no pigeon smile Thank you peter.
Taking a stroll.....the pigeon has centre stage! Great image Louis and I like the processing! smile
Louis: Thank you Martin, glad to have a comment from you again smile
I don't like the looks of the guys at left... still, a great shot...
