lisbon walls

When I first visited Lisbon, aged about fifteen, I traipsed around the city for several hours taking photographs of every single piece of graffiti I could find; I loved the way the bright, severe colours of the paint interacted with the subtle colours of the city, and I also loved the huge collages of peeling posters found all over the walls. In that respect, Lisbon has hardly changed - there are wonderful, vivid textures everywhere. I could probably find things to photograph all day here.
