Layers of Lisbon, Portugal

The photo shows a side street in the center of Lisbon, leading to a graffiti-ed stairway up a hill to some beautiful houses, behind which you can see another set of houses. I think it really captures the essence of Lisbon, which is filled with steep hills, beautiful buildings, and colorful graffiti. I also liked how the newer buildings in the foreground framed the older buildings behind them, and the oldest ones peak over the top. After I took the picture I noticed how there was just a hint of some sort of rainbow reflection that appeared in the photo, which I thought complimented it nicely.
