InterContinental Hotel in Palácio das Cardosas in Porto; Portugal

Palácio das Cardosas | Porto, Portugal

The centre of Porto is a fabulous place for a photographer to be. In comparison with other cities in Portugal, whereby architecture is marked by baroque, the architecture of Porto is rather monumental and dominated by granite constructions.

Cristo Rei (Statue of Jesus Christ the King) in Almada opposite to Lisbon, Portugal.

Cristo Rei in Almada | Lisbon, Portugal

This photo was literally taken from our kitchen window. We were staying in one of the Airbnb’s in Bairo Alto, which gave us a clear view of the Tagus River, 25 Abril Bridge and the Statue of Christ the King located on the opposite shores and Almada.

Vilnius winter photo of The Church of St Anne; Lithuania.

Church of St Anne | Vilnius, Lithuania

The Church of St Anne is famous for its representation of a flamboyant and brick gothic architectural style in Lithuania. What was fascinating was that the exterior of the church had remained almost unchanged since the 15th century, when it was erected. Thanks to St Anne Church, the old town of Vilnius can potentially be signed to the UNESCO World Heritage list.

The 25 de Abril Bridge and Christ The King statue on Tagus River – Lisbon, Portugal.

The 25 de Abril Bridge and Christ The King statue | Lisbon, Portugal

The 25 de Abril Bridge connects the city of Lisbon with the municipalities of Almada. It is the 32nd largest suspended bridge in the world. During the day, you will see that it appears as a dark red colour and it reminded me so much of the Golden Bridge in San Francisco. Just behind 25 de Abril Bridge in the municipality of Almada stands a statue of Jesus Christ – as its name emphasises – “Sanctuary of Christ The King”.

The Gloriette and The Neptune Fountain in Vienna on a Summer’s day.

The Gloriette and The Neptune Fountain | Vienna, Austria

The Gloriette ensemble located up on the hill and The Neptune Fountain are part of the park surrounding Schönbrunn Palace – a must-see in Vienna. The outcome of this picture was more than what I had expected. The air on this day was hazy because of the heat, however, this haziness gave a glow to the marble statues on The Fountain and The Gloriette itself creating such a beautiful canvas.
