The Glória Funicular was opened to the public on October 24, 1885. At first it was designed as a water-powered system, then in 1886 it was replaced by a steam-power one, and finally in 1915 it was electrified. In 2002 it was designated a National Monument

Brilliant series! Fantastic editing. The line between comic book reality & "normal" reality is almost indistinguishable, in these images, making the graffiti so much less offensive. Bravo!

Muito boa esta série. Pena que alguns não compreendam que todos estes gráfitis são apenas lixo.

A little more ranting about graffiti! Why is it OK for multinational companies to display their advertising on the side of public transport, on bill boards and even in some places as neon lights covering the sides of huge buildings but people are not supposed to express themselves (and bring a little humour) by doing something similar! It's all about who has the most money.
End of rant.

I choose #3 as my favourite. As for the graffiti, in this case I think it makes the vehicles look personal to the area. I like it here.

The people who create the graffiti are masters, just a shame it has to be on someone else's canvas! I simply adore #1 & 3, A!

I like how you've made the graffiti look artistic with your editing.

I like these funiculars, we have the same sort of thing that take people down very steep cliffs on the south coast but without the graffiti. Such a shame that great artwork like this is done on council property. Enjoyable set Antonio.

As much as I like the photos, color, shots, etc., every time I see graffiti like that, I get sick. I know it is "art", but not when the artists have no respect for the canvas they put it on. Good post. Lack of social responsibility or even caring (because no one is doing anything about it) is sad though.

Wow!!! You are certainly on to something. Thank you very much for sharing! I must tell you that this set leaves me feeling very pro-desecration. Speaks volumes of an underside that we create but do not want to look at; much less take responsibility.
