Photographer's Note

Do you remember Cow Parades? I guess someone was inspired by the idea and organized the Tree Parade in Lisboa (May 29 - June 10) and Porto (still going on: June 15 - 30). Identical "trees" were painted and decorated by children of different schools all over Portugal. Most are, naturally, dedicated to environmental issues.
Contrary to Cow Parade that was distributed all over the city, the Tree Parade was concentrated in the grand Terreiro do Pa蔞 (Pra蓷 do Com廨cio), in Lisboa, and Parque da Cidade, in Porto. This was sponsored by a forestry and an educational departments of the Portuguese government.
I've found this event by chance and I wasn't with time (and mood) to search great shots. Now I have difficulty to choose one as main post. So, please see also the others at workshops: a similar POV (different trees), and a different POV (with some people also). In background it's the famous arch of Rua Augusta (now being restored).
See also Gon蓷lo (bluejeans)s two posts of this event: this (good detail of a tree) and this (wider view).
