davids Excellent set - I went there a few years ago and really enjoyed it too

unige This is a great set, I love the tones and the atmosphere these pictures transmit.

lookwhatisaw Janelas, janelas, janelas. Tenho muito saudades do Porto. I used to live on Cedofeita near Dos Clerigos. These pictures are PERFEITO for me because I adore windows, and all the windows to be found there, especially in the Ribeira. I recall each of those buildings fondly, and the Sá on the hill overlooking the river. The strange thing, though, is that I lived there for many years and I cannot recall at all the street car to Batalha. Getting old, I guess, and much history between my years in Portugal and Germany. Thank you for this wonderful reminiscence into my past, Christa!
lookwhatisaw · 2012-04-16: 14:51
lookwhatisaw Ahhhhh, yes, I remember now. the street car goes directly up the hill from the train station in the direction of the Rua de Sta. Catarina, nâo é? :-))

Eiram Oh my!! Excellent pictures! Makes me want to pack my bag and go there!!:)
Eiram · 2012-04-16: 15:11
unreal When I visited the first time Oporto, the first thing I saw was a dealer outside my car: "Do you want some stuff? Very good, very cheap" :)
Except this adventure, "your" city was a fantastic experience. Perhaps one day...
I've added N6 to my FL and the post card (N4) too.
unreal · 2012-04-16: 15:19
JumiElla Excellent photos! And wonderful portrait of the pretty woman.
My friend was recently in Porto. She showed me a lot of pictures. Your city is really beautiful!
Once, I will visit Porto too! :)))
JumiElla · 2012-04-16: 15:24
Patricia132 These are all outstanding and marvelous!
Love all the building shots, especially no.2.
#4 is a gorgeous shot as well!
Patricia132 · 2012-04-16: 15:39
tomie quelle belle ville! et tu la photographies si bien!
ce que je regrette surtout c'est de ne pas l'avoir visitée quand j'étais au Portugal! le tramway et ces ponts sont bien sympathiques!
une jolie portugaise sur la 5 avec sa magnifique chevelure de sirène! serait elle célibataire? j'ai encore un fils à marier :))
merci Christa de nous montrer les merveilles de ta ville!
tomie · 2012-04-16: 15:44
gonia never - for sure! I love all, but 3rd one is the best. I see tramway there! not flat area! Porto is the most know by football.
gonia · 2012-04-16: 15:52
marilynx So formal, yet so inviting...
marilynx · 2012-04-16: 16:04
Kovac Superb :) Wonderful as always:)
Kovac · 2012-04-16: 16:44
TheBigHush Some terrific shots, esp 1, 2 & 4

Seems to me from your pictures that Porto has more character and charm than Lisboa... would you agree ?
TheBigHush · 2012-04-16: 17:22
Clickpen Preciosa ciudad, una de mis asignaturas pendiente es conocer Portugal, solo conozco El Algarve un poco y Lisboa de paso.
Clickpen · 2012-04-16: 17:37

liveandletlive Christa, what can I say?? They are incredible as always. I envy your skill and your magnificent views.
Incredible!
liveandletlive · 2012-04-16: 22:28
sooch #1 is dramatic and wonderful (looks like a ) panoramic and #2 is very cool with all the repeating windows of different colors and sizes. Is the woman in #5 someone you know or was it a candid street shot? I second the above quote, I envy your skill, wonderful photos as always:)
sooch · 2012-04-16: 22:38

Secondly, your title is perfect with pictures capturing not a boring personality at all!
It broods, it smiles, it charms, it's wild & unpredictable (much like that girl's hair ;)
It's time to phone the airlines:)))

geyabesse Simplesmente uma beleza... da muita vontade de conhecer a cidade. Vc mora ai? Lindas fotos com certeza
geyabesse · 2012-04-20: 16:07
renatomartins No algarve passe-se férias, em Lisboa governa-se e no Porto trabalha-se :) Aqui está uma cidade para mim quase desconhecida. Em Fevereiro do ano que vem, vou-lhe fazer uma visita. Prometido.
A #2 a e a #6 fazem parte da minha F Lista. Gosto naturalmente da #4 com a sua dramaturgia própria. Na #5 gosto muito do olhar indeciso e questionante da "modelo"
renatomartins · 2012-04-21: 12:39
CHOSSID Looks wonderful!
