How can stone have so many different tones? This is like a little symphony of textures. Beautiful.
Are the signs made of tiles? Beautiful! And the colour of the walls is so pretty and warm. Nice place:)
I love the contrast in this shot.
Very interesting! I'm wondering why the reason they had done gates like this one in that time!Beautiful picture!Tenha um lindo dia meu amigo!Léia
we have quite a few places like these in mumbai!lovely find!
Why forgotten? Which one is the end and which one is the start? I love the color. Did you take this photo in the afternoon?
I love this litle corner! This would make a wonderful painting.
Joo, the signs are made of tiles, they show the current coat of arms of Oeiras (1937).Yes, Léia, this is strange! Maybe this was just a common entrance they have closed with bars for some reason...Henny, you are right, this is afternoon light, before sunset.
I suppose that this is an abandoned house, therefore the amount of leves in the ground, the fungus on the walls suggest this. In fact, everything confers an absolute beauty to this lost edge. You it only to finding it! Congratulations!marieloupe
This gate and this corner look so nice...
The colors, patina on the stucco, and design of the buildings reminds me of Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site across the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires. It is an old colonial-era town that was bypassed by development and that retains its colonial era character and ambiance. It was a Portugese settlement for part of its history, and Spanish at other times. There is a small museum there devoted to its Portugese period and culture. Perhaps its Portugese past explains its resemblance to the scene in your photo.
Super shot and nice color. It looks a little like a old time western jail. Hmmmm!! MB
This photo is just delicious ... .love the light and shadows, love the colors, love the crumbling history!
Love this photo! Beautiful!
Looks like a rather forlorn little corner. Do you know what establishments or buildings were there in the past?
Even forgotten, the colors are strong.
A beautiful picture. Lovely colors that seem to silently speak about the past.
Interesting intersection, like the start of a rainbow. What beautifully aged, textured walls.
Thanks for pointing out that the tiles are "young"! The colours are simply fantastic, cosy even.
How amazing is this? Good grief - 18th century? Great colors, JM! It reminds me of the old saying, "I don't know where I am, but I'm making good time!"
Uma fotografia muito bem conseguida!!!
How very nostalgic!Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow!joyA Pinay In EnglandYour Love CoachI, Woman
I love the aged patina and chippy-ness!
Even though it may look a bit depressing, that rustic look is beautiful!
I just love how Oeiras is such a mixture of old and new. And all so beautiful and charming.
i love this corner, colors are great!
Wonderful and amazing texture!
I love the colours and history of forgotten and abandoned. This is a very special shot.
This is photo full of atmosphere! Great capture! But it is sad that they are so devastated.
Charming setting I think. What's behind the door?
