Lisbon through my lens

10/10 photography circle May 2016

lisbon B&W photography

A black and white eye on Lisbon city

Well hello folks! I’m not very into the blog now but preparing some good stuff about my photography. I’ll let you know very soon.

I have to work on B&W editing. I still haven’t invest into Lightroom and Photoshop so I used again Picmonkey. What do you think? Not that bad? I promise to show you some colorful pics of Lisboa in a few days in my Lisbon travel guide. By that time you could also check my IG account, there are so many Lisboa Love there!

I have to admit that I fall in love with the city. We were very lucky with the weather. And a city on hills with the sea not far is of course amazing!

I played with some little HDR effect on this one.

I always loved rows of windows. Such a lovely house.

And the best part of this city is to let yourself get lost and wander. Just another of my peregrination that leaded me to find some visual scenary treasures.

I hope you enjoyed my B&W trials. For the lovers of colors, don’t feel frustrated… I’ll be back with my Lisbon travel guide (full of colorful pictures!). I feel very frustrated that it’s just 10 pics because Lisbon is so much more than this!

Now, jump around to watch my dear friend’s pictures Sam (I bet there will be some kangaroos there!) and follow the circle until you are back at me!

Have you been to Lisbon? What did you enjoy the most?

    Oh Cathy these are amazing. I love your perspectives from above and down at ground level. Just stunning. Can’t wait to see the colour ones too, on top of what I’ve seen on instagram of course. Portugal has some amazing colours everywhere. Xxx

    • And it’s such a strong spirit city with many nice and kind people. I just loved it. I have to stop going through the circle , my computer is gong so slow. will sleep and be back tomorrow. xx cathy

  • What fabulous shots. I love the black and white and I’ve enjoyed your colour shots on Instagram too. You’re so clever the way you’ve used the different perspectives, from up high and down low. Do you know, I’ve never been to Lisbon? But now I really want to go!

    • Oh thank you dear. As i’m not always sure and I know some friends don’t like my kind of not classical piont of view, I’m happy that some like it! Well when you go to Lisbon, message me because I’m definitly coming back there with you! xx cathy

  • Oh wow! These look like photos from a travel magazine Cathy! Just gorgeous! Again I am broke from loving your beautiful photos, you make it so inviting that’s another place to add to the list. Travel magazines will be calling you soon I reckon xx

    • You’re so sweet. That would be my dream job, imagine just wander and take photographs and be paid for it!!!! Amazing job! xx cathy

  • Oh wow – what beautiful photos Cathy! I think you’ve really found your niche with photography. You have captured the place amazingly!

    Do you follow Valerie Jardin? I think that you would enjoy her work and her podcast if you aren’t already familiar.

    • Thanks a lot dear. Do you think so? you’re so kind. I just started to follow her! It’s incredible how we have the same style of photography! thanks a lot!

      xx cathy

  • I love black & white pics, I think it makes you look closer at the subject, it captures so much of the smaller details xx

    • I love them too. They bring a vintage look also. Love that! Your fashion photos would look also great in B&W! I really need to come in Perth and organise a photo shoot for all the babies and ladies and families! That could be fun! xx cathy

  • Mum Of Five Girls

    amazing as always Cathy!!

  • Gorgeous image! I love Black & White photography. Xx

  • Love your photos of Lisbon especially the tram tracks. I know some little guy will love looking at it! x

  • Stunning pics. Cathy! I have a thing for taking pics of laundry hanging out. I find it really interesting how different each country is and the different back drops etc. I have pics from all over the world of people’s laundry… my huz thinks I’m a crazy woman! I’ve never been to Lisbon but it’s now on the list! Xx

  • Cathy your photo’s are stunning. Looks like you had a great time there too. I’ve been once many years ago and loved it apart from the excessive dog poo! x

  • There are great! I like all the different angles you used to capture the city (I am taking mental notes to use them in my photography). The B&W effect is great (I use PicMonkey too).

  • Visiting the 10 on 10 circle and your photos are nice! Love the b and w and the angles you shot. Visiting from Sunshine and Elephants ~Lowanda
