The portuguese destructive methodology for classified areas....

The gardens of palacete Mendonça in Lisbon, April 2017

..and today.

The gardens are classified (protected by law), yet the trees were mutilated by the converging incompetence of authorities, owners, builders, etc. Unfortunately, not an isolated example, but more or less the "modus operandi" that slowly (but firmly) is destroying the character and authenticity of the city of Lisbon.

Viskningar och rop....

Nykvist, Bergman, Thulin and Ullmann

Whispers and shouts and not "Cries and Whispers" 
Sussurros e gritos e não "Lágrimas e suspiros"

Another goodbye among Lisbon's historic shops....

The bookshop Aillaud & Lellos at Rua do Carmo, 82, opened the doors in 1931 and closed definitely in december 2017. New attractions for tourists are to be expected.

He sold one (!) painting....

Arles, 1888

..during his lifetime !?
