WPC: Vibrant

Last year in Portugal I found a particular, somewhat peculiar public bathroom in Lisbon. I happened to need one at the time, so I decided to take a closer look. Outside much hype advertised it to be “the sexiest bathroom” or some such hyperbole. It was really a big, walk-in, usable ad for their products ~ and they even charged to get in. Crazy. Smart.

And, of course, I needed a bathroom at the time, so my curiosity and my bladder led my decision to check it out. I took photos, naturally. And this one popped out for today’s WPC: Vibrant.


As you can see, I awkwardly erased the logo and tagline for the advertiser so you can freely enjoy the colors. This adequate bathroom with a great (not pictured) sink met my needs…but sexy? Please.

Perhaps they were referring to the soft porn art on the walls? Why yes, I did take a picture of that too….however, I’ll wait for the WPC: Soft Porn to post that one. 😉

It was rather fun to pick a color, though….which would YOU chose?

Add Fuel & Eime

I took this photo last year while on a street art tour in Lisbon. I fell in love with Add Fuel’s work ~ so detailed, beautiful, meaningful. Like so many great street art pieces, this one on a busy street was very challenging to photograph with my phone. One of these days I’m getting a grown-up camera.

Today I found this lovely video of their process:
