15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Pigeon on the bank of Tagus river
Lisbon is becoming more and more a touristic spot. It is also a city that attracts people from all over the world: ones who got there in order to search for better job, for love, searching for a good wave or sun. Honestly, I have no idea if the people in the photo are locals or tourists. But what I can see is that they differ among each other: black or white skin, old or young age, couples or singles, disabled or healthy ones. Behind them there's this distinctive panorama of the city: the statue of Jesus, "San Francisco" bridge and the river. The pigeon, which is a comic accent that fill up the photo, attaches also a nature aspect to the situation.
