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. :)

ride: An old-fashioned tram is seen rattling through a quiet street...
but there's more to this than meets the eye"

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

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 )
:iconpsychologicaltoaster:
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~

Hey Ben!
I'm sure you've noticed a little coffee shop right behind the place where you took the photo. My parents once owned that coffee shop and my grandparents lived in Alfama all their lives ! So it's one of your few posts that i couldn't help but comment ;p
That being said, I don't think there's any of your "Pencil Vs. Camera" photo that I don't like, but this one has a lot more meaning to it and you nailed it ! I'm an amateur photographer and a big fan, so if you ever come back to Lisbon and you need a tour guide, we can both learn a thing or two ! eheh

Impressive to say the least. And a perfect tribute through your unique art to one of the most mythical trams of the whole world!

Impressionante, é o mínimo que se pode dizer. E uma homenagem perfeita da tua parte a um dos eléctricos mais míticos do mundo!

First of all, this is my favourite work from you!!
Maybe because is a photo/drawing of my beloved country C: or simply because I adore buildings, houses and all!!
This is so well done and amazingly beautiful! I'm amazed by it, seriously! You have such an unique style, and very talent as well!!
Keep us the fantastic work!!

Viajar no 28 é uma das melhores experiências de viagem no tempo e de descoberta sempre de algo novo em lugares antigos que podemos ter em Lisboa!
E se a toda a viagem for feita no calor do Verão e de janela aberta então temos momentos perfeitos e hilariantes!

Esta composição mista tem tudo para dar um projecto de postais ilustrados. Acho que seria uma óptima ideia avançares e arriscares...

Grande trabalho.
