A stroll next to the Tagus River in Lisbon is very interesting. I never know what I’ll come across. This time it was river art – an industrious artist, using river rocks to create sculptures with a theme.

Look carefully, the scene below is of The Last Supper.
And here is the artist himself…
A pretty lady.
This is an interesting picture because it has so much in it. Firstly I’ve tried to include the whole exhibit. And secondly…can you see the green frog on the right of the photo? Surprise…..!
A red velvet lined rock repository for his funding…
Each collection of colour representing an inspiration.
A message of welcome to the Pope who will be visiting Fátima soon.
I don’t know who the artist is. While tourists marvelled at his rock art he carried on, never looking up, piling rock upon rock, creating new works.
For this week’s WordPress challenge I searched through my archives and found this pic. I battled a bit finding a photo that means security for me. All I could think about was burglar bars and electric fences. Now if you’re South African, you’ll resonate I’m sure. And that’s not a happy photo at all.
So I chose this one – of the brass bell and I think lighthouse (although it does seem a bit small) at the mouth of Kalk Bay harbour. I don’t think it is to warn ship out at sea, but rather to guide the fishing boats into the harbour, the bell on the one side of the harbour wall, and the light on the other, keeping them safe and secure.
I’ve been away from my blog due to travelling. I’m back in South Africa now and catching up on blogging. I hope you enjoy one of the photos I took this past week of my favourite European city – Lisbon – in response to this week’s WordPress weekly photo challenge.
It’s springtime in Lisbon. The colours are vibrant as they always are. It’s also cold.
Trees are in bloom.
This staccato post is all I can muster today, after not blogging yesterday. I’ve been travelling from Johannesburg to Portugal and now I am here. I slept little on the plane and I’m about ready to drop off to sleep even though it is 16:21 here. Not because of jet lag because the time difference is only 2 hours. This is all because I didn’t sleep on the plane.
