Black & White Sunday: Local Watering Hole (response to guest challenge)

This is  my response to the guest challenge by Irene Waters. Irene is asking us to post a photo(s) of a  local watering hole and has offered several possible interpretations. I rarely visit pubs in my town, but here is a shot of a local cafe in Lisbon. While exploring the quarter of Belem I noticed an old yellow tram, a famous symbol of Lisbon, which had been turned into a  cafe that is mostly visited by locals. It seemed convenient to preserve its recognisable colour – this is my deviation from Irene’s great theme – a local watering hole in black and white, but with a touch of selective colouring.

Don’t fret, if you don’t have anything ready. You have up to a week to post it.  Happy Sunday!

  1. Oh, I do enjoy riding the trams in Lisbon. I’m keen to get back there and will definitely look out for this one. Thanks for the tip Paula. And I like the selective colouring 🙂

  4. Fabulous response, Paula! Well worth waiting for 🙂 (I got engrossed in writing my Monday walk and just remembered our conversation yesterday). The hit of yellow is absolute perfection! And Fado, of course 🙂 Truly beautiful… I love it!

  8. I have a great fondness for Lisbon and went there after reading Jenifer Robert’s book Glass about an English merchant who became a Portuguese glass-maker. There is a square in Lisbon named after him Largo dos Stephens, I think.
