This is the legendary "Tram 28" in Lisbon, Portugal. It runs through
the narrowest and steepest streets of the Alfama district. I drew the
sketch and took the photo. :)

Tram 28

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Lisbon, Portugal
In a tram 28
A drawing erasable
Or a living state

Situation is complex
We are its fact
Visions from our cortex
Those we on react

Dream world between
Is it really so?
Frame of mind seen
The rest we don’t know

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-05-19
Pencil Vs Camera - 4 by *BenHeine - A beautiful and original work with a unique concept and great composition ( Suggested by medreaming and Featured by archanN )
This piece REALLY caught my eye! The originality was amazing and how you recreated the scene was great! The imagination and creativity you used was wonderful! And the drawing itself was great. I love how the drawing on the paper is cartoonish and left uncolored so it would stand out from the real world! It's also amazing how the paper and the drawing on it matches up completely with the real world background, like it's almost actually supposed to be there. So, in terms of creativity and "perfection" (or details) this piece is wonderful! It really show imagination to everyone! Well done~
