Lisbon is full of surprises. We were on a walk toward the port district in September, 2001 when we came across these men in uniform. I’m not really sure who they were, but it’s always interesting to see what types of uniforms the military or the police are wearing. Form and function are usually at war in some cases, while in others the uniforms aid their work.

My favourite thing about this photo is the fellow nodding off. Can you spot him?
