Photographer's Note

Each time I worked in Lisbon, I stayed at the Hotel Principe Real on the northern edge of the Bairro Alto, near the Botanic Garden. It's a wonderful area and I was fascinated by the graceful handling of the steep and winding topography and particularly by these steps. When I had the time to make a study of the steps, I found this couple occupying them in a sweet -- and what turned out to be a very long -- embrace. Although I waited discreetly for them to leave, it eventually became clear that I had better take my pictures.
I dedicate this one, on St. Valentine's day, to lovers everywhere.
