Lisbon in Colour: 2016 Travelogue Part 1

When I visited Lisbon last year little did I know I would return to the city in under a year.  When my wife announced she had a business trip to Lisbon, I had the choice of spending a few days in dreary Ireland looking after our toddler Isabella or Isabella and I packing our bags and hanging out in Lisbon. No choice really so we found an AirBnB apartment and off we went.

My memory of Lisbon from the previous trip was the colour of the city. Painted rendered and glazed ceramic tiles building exteriors, terracotta tiles roofs dispersed with modern graffiti wall art. I knew from the time of booking the trIp I would be shooting a lot in colour.  Some cities are black and white and others are colour.  Lisbon is a city of colour.
