The elevador da Gloria

Portugal
Lisbon


Lisbon is a multilevelled city and one way to avoid climbing steps to visit them is to join the Elevador da Gloria, a fonicular transport that connects the downtown Pombaline(Restauradores sq) with the colorful upper level Bairo Alto.

    if this were a still from a motion picture, i'd strongly suspect it to be taken from a horror flick!* ; ) why? well, i see a one-eyed street car moving towards** a terrified pedestrian running from it in pink panic: "yikes, here she comes! she's got her eye fixed on me, wanting to run me down and eat me alive! and doesn't it say DIE on her metal snout??" ; ) a very dynamic capture under a moody sky, alexander! love the intense oranges dominating the shot! greetings, sabine.

    **it's probably ascending, but to imagine it coming down is much more fun! ; ))

    fine perspective making one realize how steep the street is and how much people and the funicular have to climb .... an intriguing view !!!
    best regards,

    For the one who is fit and wants to save money the elevador lines provide a pretty good shortcut to the next level. I decidedly like the wonderful interior of the old trams and elevators.

    These funicular trams are a wonderful way of going up the steep hills to the top. an excellent scene showing the tram and the hills to be climbed.
