Towering Over Lisbon

Towers around Lisbon.  And not a shot of Christo Rei in site! 

Shot from the Frigate at Cacilhas on the south side of the Tagus.  A lighthouse tower. 

Another lighthouse tower along the waterfront near Belem.  

Not really towers, but I don't know what these mystery beasts are.  Perhaps keeping the cars off the sidewalk? 

There's an oil refinery along the Expo parque.  Rather than relocate it, they made a virtue of necessity and made it vertical and statuesque.

I don't know why this makes me think of burning man.  

Pilons for the overhead cars in expo parque.  These sit in the water to the side of the non-board boardwalk.
