Thru the Lens: Lisbon

Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal, is a beautiful and relaxed city on the sea. From the vibrant art scene to the delicious seafood to the great year round weather to the golden beaches just outside the city, there’s a lot to love about Lisbon. I was only in town for a few days but I certainly could’ve stayed longer! Hope you enjoy these images I captured during my visit.

There are pockets of street art all over the city.
