Vasco da Gama Bridge and Skate Park

9

Bridge over the Rio Tejo (Tagus River) and the skate park on the north side (Lisboa).

Finished in 1998 for the Expo 98, this bridge is the second one crossing the river Tejo at Lisbon. It has 17 km (the longest in Europe) and it’s construction had some environmental concerns like the inclination of the lamp posts built this way so they don’t bother the flamingos and other animals.

Under the north part of the bridge, where the Expo 98 took place, you will find a great place to walk and do sports like skating at the skate park.

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
