The Pairing Perspectives Experiment: Lisbon

Castelo & Bridge from Graca PanoCastelo & Bridge from Graca

Forest or tree? Grain of sand, or stretch of beach? Since learning how to use the panorama function on my camera I’ve been quite captivated experimenting with when it’s a nice tool. Some of you have voted in favor of more panoramas, and I thought with this entry I’d expose you to some of the framing, editing, and selecting challenges I have in figuring out what to share with you each time I see things that grab my imagination. I recall a conversation once with my brother about the youth tendency to state their boredom on a regular basis – how this baffled us both, since the world is so endlessly full of fascination. If you’re not finding it, maybe it’s time to change your frame of reference, focal length, or angle. It nearly always works for me. This is an experiment: vote yea or nay to further such experiments, by viewing this entry more times (= more future such pairings from other locations) or fewer times. Of course, comments are also welcome. Cheers – enjoy.Graca Convento & Tile Facades from  Castelo PanoGraca Convento & Tile Facades from  CasteloGraca Convento & Tile Facades from Castelo Pano 2Graca Convento & Tile Facades from Castelo 2

    I enjoy the different views and perspectives you offer, both in photos and in literary form.

    Hi Paul, Could that perhaps have been someone I know with whom you were having that conversation about the boredom of young people? I think so! At any rate, I, too, vote for perspective, both literary and photographic. And hang in there!
