June Squares | Roofs

It’s June and another 30 day challenge from Becky.  ‘The Life of B’ This month she is looking for a roof or roofs or even rooves. Follow the link for the rules.

A scene I am sure Becky will have seen for herself – this photo was taken from the viewing platform at the top of the Santa Justa Lift (Portuguese: Elevador de Santa Justa) in Lisbon. With a view over that amazing wave pattern in Rossio Square. Cropped and zoomed in to show the magnificent terracotta tiles.

March Square | Multiple Squares

Portuguese Squares and Circles

Some you have seen before, others you have not, but with time running out I wanted to display all my Portugues squares. In a square. Of course.

We are almost coming to the end of Becky’s (“A life of a 40 something”) March challenge of square photographs with the theme:

  1. Squared Squares’ – think multiple squares and squares within squares
  2. Squaring the Circle’ – the perfect post will be a circle within a square

Arabesque Ribeiro da Cunha Palace @ No 26 Rua dom Pedro V

Arabesque Palace @ No 26 copy
dating from 1877, now housing a university department. This once beautiful building, now somewhat dilapidated, is close to the Parque Príncipe (Prince) Real, near Bairro Alto which is a wonderful park though a little tired at the time of my visit in 2012, as indeed much of Lisbon was.

Paula’s (Lost in Translation) challenge this week is Traces of the Past
