Tram stopping at Praca do Comercio, Lisboa

Português got the inspiration from “The Americans”, the most famous work from the Swiss-American photographer Robert Frank.

In 2011 me and my family went to Portugal for our summer holidays. One day we were walking in Lisbon when we reached Praca do Comercio.

Standing in the square there was this tram, with all those people sitting near the windows; I tried to remember where I saw another scene like that before and in my mind came Robert Frank and his book.

Of course the historical moments of the two photos are quite different and the people were living different lives but I wanted to catch only the photographical similarities.

I hope you like it.

For technical details lovers, here you are: f/8, 1/80 sec, ISO-100, 60mm
