Gone to See Portugal. Street Photography Workshop with Steve Simon. Day 5: Lisbon, Portugal.

While walking around the LX Factory (a former fabric company transformed into a hipster hangout with graffiti, cafes and boutique shops) we came upon a commercial photographer shooting a model. As soon as he saw us with cameras we were chased away. A bit later I happened to catch the model talking on her cell phone.
