I have finished my short vacations, and with this photo I initiate a series about the beautiful city of Lisbon.
But also I want to begin with a photo taken during a pleasant meeting, with three TE members, Anabela, Filipe, y Gonçalo, with whom we spend one very special evening, in spite of the bad weather.
In this capture I looked for a close-up on the trolley of the "Elevador da Bica", a way of public transport very traditional in the city for to climb its hills.

The graphical power of this element and of the cables, and its contrast with the Tagus river, as well as the perspective of the street, with a cloudy, flat and grey sky, they were an authentic challenge, that I tried to overcome.

In the WS 1, a photo of these three friends with my wife, taken in the Garrett street, when we were initiating our walk along the Chiado.
In the WS 2, the Elevador.

The information about this nice Elevator already has included it Gonçalo in his magnificent photo taken in the same place and in the same moment.

He terminado mis cortas vacaciones, y con esta foto inicio una serie sobre la bella ciudad de Lisboa.
Pero también quiero comenzar con una foto tomada durante un agradable encuentro con tres miembros de TE, Anabela, Filipe, y Gonçalo, con quienes pasamos una tarde muy especial, a pesar del mal tiempo.

En esta toma busqué un plano muy cerrado sobre el trole del Elevador da Bica, un medio de transporte muy tradicional en la ciudad para subir sus colinas.
La fuerza gráfica de este elemento y de los cables, y su contraste con el río Tajo, así como la perspectiva de la calle, con un cielo nublado, plano y gris, eran un auténtico desafío, que intenté superar.

En el WS 1, una foto de estos tres amigos con mi esposa, tomada en la calle Garrett, cuando iniciábamos nuestro paseo por el Chiado.
En el WS 2, el Elevador.

La información sobre este bonito Elevador ya la ha incluido Gonçalo en su magnífica foto tomada en este mismo lugar y en el mismo momento.

Hola Josep,

have read about your meeting and seen some pictures so far, this location we have seen yesterday in another picture here (the tram..), nice to have a look down the road above the tram..

thanks for sharing, see you around, cheers Bernd

Hi Josep
welcome back.
I guess this is one way to take advantage of the not so pleasant weather.
We wouldn't really even be aware of it if you didn't mention anything.
Its funny to see this subject, because so often on TE, people complain when they see cable wires in photographs - and here we have a photo where the wires are the main subject :) Awesome! :)
Of course the buildings flanking right and left make for a secondary subject, almost the primary.
I like the creative use of the cables, as it also displays the culture of the citylife.
great work!
cheers

A colorful city scene with nice details,
Best regards,

Hello Josep,

Sometimes, bad weather may be a blessing, otherwise one wouldn't have captured an image like this which looks very nice. You have shown the cable wires so creatively with the blurred background of the colorful buildings. One can always look for good in anything.

Hi Josep!

Exquisite posting! The focusing on cables is such a wonderful idea, creating the sense of a "trapped" city, it also gives a nice DOF. The lines, shapes, colors and lighting is very well handled. The composition, framing and POV is superb!
Hope you did enjoy your TE Meeting!

Have a great day,
Matt

Olá Josep!
Um detalhe que poucos se lembrariam de captar. Gosto do resultado e especialmente do efeito criado pelos fios.
Gostei dos Ws também:)!

Hola Josep,
welcome back at the site after your short vacations in Portugal.The net of wires from the Elevator,makes the scene effective with the WS with the three Trekkers to pose in front of your camera.

Hi Josep,

The view is simply amazing with all these street details! You have captured a really great shot with a perfect sharpness and light control. A unique and very original work. Congrats!!

Warm regards,
Malgorzata

Buenos días Josep,
El grafismo de esta imagen eléctrica es original. Es un modo simbólico y realista de ver Lisboa. Una buena creatividad y una realización muy buena. Bravo.
Buen día.
Amicalement
Joël

Olá Josep e Pilar,

Bela composição cheia de grafismo com efeitos de quadriculas parece um puzzle desta parte da cidade velha de Lisboa.
A luminosidade aqui não era a melhor para fotografar, mas tu contornas bem a situação em escolher um assunto que nos desvia a atenção para o céu queimado.Um pormenor muito delicioso com as velhas habitações pela rua estreita abaixo. Pena que o prédio do lado direito esteja em obras.

No Ws postei a minha contribuição,com mais tempo postarei outras fotos. Mais tarde te enviarei por e-mail as fotos onde tu e tua esposa aparecem.
Obrigado pelas fotos que me enviaste, gostei muito :)

Um abraço,
Filipe

Ola amigo Josep ,
Gostei muito da nossa tarde passada em Lisboa , espero que tenhas gostado do Polvo a Lagareiro :).
Bela ideia fotografar os cabos elétricos deu um bom grafismo ,bom ponto de focagem no primeiro plano deixando os detalhes muito bons , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Bom fim de semana

Hi Josep,
An original detail of the main attraction of Lisbon. Great catch, wonderful capture.
Have a splendid weekend.

Hola Josep.
Buen comienzo a esta serie sobre Lisboa, una composicion ante todo muy original y con un notable grafismo con todos estos cables del elevador, ciertamente el tiempo no era nada bueno, pero en esta imagen crea un bonito efecto con esa bruma de fondo.
Grandes imagenes en el WS para completar este esplendido inicio y para poner de relieve el agradable encuentro que tubisteis con los tres miembros de TE.
Disfrutar de un feliz fin de semana.
Un fuerte abrazo par ti y Pili.
Luis.

Hello Josep,

We get the first pictures of your vacation and TE meeting with other people of TE.
Very spectacular with the much wires high above the street.
Sharpness and color are attractive
Compostion and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,
John.
PS: I don't know, or you got the false e-mail, this is for my very annoying.

Hello Josep,
Amazing electric objects. Wonderful composition with the city in the background.

Hola my friend Josep
Interesting is the grid created by the wires...it creates an interest in this picture, even though normally we try to avoid the wires. The POV, looking downward, sweeps the viewer's eyes down the road to the river & beyond. The lamp on the left is a strong focal point. Nice imaginative work!
Best Regards
Angshu

Amazing capture Josep!
Excellent POV full of details and colors..

Well done,
Chrysoula!

Hello Josep,
this is indeed a very nice shot,through the angle of view you chosen here,we can anticipate the street inclination,and the wires add an interesting graphic effect,
well done!
Dimitris.

Hola Josep,
Esta vista es muy espectacular, con les cables que se destacan del rio y de las fachadas, y la subida impresionante de esta calle. La luz es dificil pero la has bien gestionado. Has bien alcanzado tu meta.
Saludos,
Delphine
