With the absence of prompts I've had to find my own topic on which to do a Portugal Picture Post. I've decided to go with something that is very popular on the internet.

Lots of cats and a dog )

Prompts? Please?

That last post wasn't as vibrant as I hoped.

In hindsight, the evening setting makes it look rather sombre.

Let's try again - this time with colours!

This is Lantana camara, which is a popular ornamental plant in Germany, especially because the flowers change colour during the summer. I was surprised to see them grown as hedges or as shrubs in the wild, but Wikipedia informs me that it is an invasive species in many warmer countries.

Even though I wasn't happy with how I answered that prompt, I wouldn't mind getting more from you!

Your prompts are challenging me to think about my pictures - and they mean you don't get the usual collection of day-by-day picture spam.

So, [ profile] comava gave me 'vibrant' - an adjective often used about cities, colours or sounds. Sounds don't photograph well and as to colours, the flower post took care of that, so it had to be a city picture from Lagos, Portugal.

(In case you're wondering, that Nigerian city was - probably - named after the place in Portugal and yes, the slave trade is something that is slowly being addressed in Lagos.)

This is one of Lagos' many squares and the one with the best street entertainers. Last year, we saw giant soap bubbles there.

This guy was pretty good amd I may post more pictures but they need a little work to make them presentable.

Here is the next instalment of my Portugal pics.

The prompt was Architecture: )

Please throw more prompts at me - I don't mind a bunch of them and they could be anything! I'll think of something.

The Algarve was great again, different in small ways and we managed to find new places, but also found out that we'd lost one that was dear to our heart.

We are still in the stages of emptying out a big semi-detached house in SmallTown - the in-laws were not quite hoarders, but certainly packrats. You hold onto stuff in case of "bad times". More often than not, this kind of thinking has come down from their parents and grandparents who certainly knew 'bad times' in the shape of the first half of the 20th century. Read more... )
