Photographer's Note

The grid

Lisboa, Alfama, Casa dos Bicos, pavement, urbanites.
Not much more to say or to document – just ‘light on surface’ here and celebrating photography as the play with geometrics and textures. And maybe a bit of conceptualism.

I’m preparing our upcoming trip to Lisbon and revisited some old pics in the process.

More info and an earlier shot of the Casa dos Bicos is:

The PCS3 work flow: I corrected for perspective distortion, cropped, altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, using different layers, flattened the image, converted it o b&w (method: gradient mapping) adjusted the contrast locally, enhanced the edges, USM-ed, added a frame and resized and did a gentle USM (0,7px, 18%) again.
With this pic I used a graphic tablet for the first time and what a delight it was.
