lisbon, portugal

Happy Easter!
We have just returned from a few days in Lisbon, Portugal ... what a place! The lyric "beauty in the breakdown" has never been truer ~ this beautiful city is largely in decay, but in a captivating way. Great architecture, great food and wonderful people ~ we had an excellent time. I bought a new lens (17-50mm) for my camera especially for this trip, allowing me to take some wide angle and better streetscape shots. Here are a few of my favourite ...











I also took loads of pics on my phone and uploaded them to instagram (@yardagedesign) if you'd like to see more of what I saw. Have a brilliant week where-ever in the world you are!

These photos are gorgeous! I've been dreaming about Portugal lately as a friend of mine is living there with her family at the moment and loving every minute of it... can't wait to go travelling again... Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Nic, just catching up on your blog because for some reason your photos don't come up on my reader on my phone (which is where I do a lot of blog reading these days for various reasons). Stunning photos! I once went to a conference in Faro in the south of Portugal, very different to Lisbon it seems. I'm going to have to put Lisbon on my to visit list I think. Reminds me a little of Barcelona, one of my favourite all time places. xx
