One of my goals this year is to up my game in street photography. Starting in Lisbon, Portugal with Remote Year is truly one of the best travel destinations in the world to capture some compelling street photography shots.
When you first hit the streets of Lisbon you may think it’s a bit chaotic. I know I did during my first week there. Yet soon I started seeing it as vibrant instead of chaotic.
There is art everywhere! And the architecture is mind-blowing, from the Moorish-era tiles that lend texture and rustic sophistication to every façade, to the super-sleek contemporary architecture that reveals a complex cultural aesthetic.
And the people, well, there are so many characters on the streets of Lisbon it’s a treat to just walk about and observe. And I like to observe with my camera in hand or in front of my eye.
Over the five weeks we spent in Lisbon with #RemoteYearCurie I captured hundreds of street photos. Trying to narrow them down to a handful to share was a task, so I got help from two of my RY colleagues, both of whom I respect for their photographic eye. Thanks Gavin and Dylan!
Here are the street photography shots that made the cut. I haven’t captioned them because I hope the pictures simply tell the stories that I saw.
A photograph is the pause button on life.

That’s It For Lisbon!
Portugal stole my heart… the first time I visited in 2016 and again this year. There’s just something about it that you can’t really capture in words. I hope these photos I’ve shared help you see what I feel when I’m there.
I’m in Croatia now for the next month! My goal of a “photos of the week” blog may or may not happen, I’m just sayin’. The days go by very quickly! But I know I will be snapping away and will share as often as I can.
