A story behind a photo – Lisbon photo essay

This Christmas, I crossed the Atlantic to have some much-needed, long overdue, quality family time in Portugal, the homeland of my ancestors.

I’ve been working on the few photos I took while exploring the city. And this one, it’s about something I discovered that’s one of those things that makes traveling to another country so fascinating: learning about the local culture and its traditions.

Without giving it all away, all I can say about this picture, well, I was doing something that one must do while in Lisbon, the capital.

Stay tuned for more pictures and the whole story. There’s more to it.

 

Saúde!
