Christmas lights in Portugal

My love for Christmas decorations is limitless. If I could, I would wrap christmas lights around me and spend Christmas in this position. If it comes to street photography, there were a few times I would lose my life while taking pictures in the middle of crossroads just to capture colorful elements hung above the street or on the buildings.

Last year I took pictures of Warsaw. It was raining, but I spent nice time with Dorota and Julia. We ate gingerbreads and drank hot tea in a few places such as benches or bus stops. We had so much fun and the pictures were quite okay as the wet places on the streets reflected the lights.

This Christmas I’m spending in Portugal, so the Christmas decorations seen in the photos are from here. And it’s not just one place! Since the end of November, I’ve visited Ponta Delgada (Azores), Espinho, Coimbra, Sintra and Lisbon. There is no snow that would enhance the magic atmosphere, but there’s also no snow in Poland, so let’s not complain about it. And the pictures are nice by the way, take a look!
