Broken in the Alfama

This is our entry in Dutch goes the Photo!’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – Broken.

When we visited Lisbon, Portugal, this September and stayed in the Alfama District, we noticed the continuous buzz of construction. This seemed to primarily involve turning dilapidated flats into Airbnb’s. However, we passed a few former apartments with no construction and this one in particular intrigued us. The building had been abandoned so long that the roof had disintegrated and several windows were bricked over. The following photo shows the view from the second floor. Although generations probably lived their lives in this place, the building seems to be permanently abandoned and broken.

This photo was taken on September 9, 2017. Specs are:

Olympus TG-4, ISO 100, f/8, 1/200 sec, 30mm full-frame equivalent.
