photohunt: m i l i t a r y



is hosted by tnchick

The only military I am fond of:  Beatles' Sargent Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band , seen earlier this week outside the MUDE – the Museum of Design and Fashion downtown Lisbon, publizising the current exhibition:" It's forbidden to forbid!" (until Jan 31st, 2010), which takes us on a journey back in time to the late 1960s and early 1970s through a presentation of around 60 exhibits interweaving design and fashion with cinema, literature and music (therefore The Beatles!) to create a rich portrait of that period.

Sorry the picture is against the sun, the back of the figures was a mirror, that explains the sun reflections on John, Ringo and Paul.. .

The  museum is located on the Rua Augusta, Lisbon's main pedestrian street,  which leads to the Triumphal Arch you see here  and onto to the Comercio Square, in the center of the square is a statue of King Jose I showing him on horseback.

Early birds: tnchick is already up, she is early this week!!!
