This man not only made our day in Lisbon, but brightened up the mood of children and adults alike who happened to be strolling along the shoreline. He is a painter, actually. His pieces of art were displayed nearby and he just watched the people and seagulls walking past while a calm music played in the background. The man in the hat took out some bread and seemed to give a bread offering to the foggy empty skies when suddenly…seagulls decided to take central roles in this artist’s painting. More and more birds slowly flew towards him, took the bread from his hands and gracefully flew away mesmerizing everyone around. The bread was gone, but everyone was still captivated by the “live” painting which had just been drawn before their very eyes, while the man in the had went back to his pieces of art, watching the wonderful world.
