Lisbon is a city with a unique light. The Tagus river is, obviously, one of the main factors contributing to this light. The city extends itself along Tagus northern shore, leaving on the other side, the south bank, the left bank, our own Rive Gauche.
In some ways, like in the other famous Rive Gauche, there were times when that left shore was home of a certain sense of bohemianism, counterculture and creativity, with a very politically active population and always on the mood for something different…
When younger, I’ve spent many hours on the ferry boats that cross the river, just looking at it, reading, listening to music, drawing… One day, I’ve decided that my life would change, that everything would be different and moved on to the right bank… I’ve been here since that day and every time I get to the shore, every time I look to the other side, there is something telling me that I’ve made the right choice on the right moment.
I took this photo on a sunny and very hot afternoon with a Polaroid Spectra SE using using The Impossible Project Color Film For Image / Spectra.
