Definitely worth enlarging to see the many details in this shot!

Boa foto mas talvez ficasse mais valorizada com um maior plano do edifício...

I love the tile. why don't we see this trend anywhere else in the world. such a great style to repeat elsewhere. thanks for the heads up about machu picchu and what was happening. we did not know until we saw your comment.

You already know what I think about Portuguese tiles. This is absolutely gorgeous!

I wonder what you cut away to show us this splendid house. Cars? ;-)

Jacob said...

Yes, it needs to be enlarged to view the magnificent details. I too, really like the tile work that you have shown us.

Is this an apartment building? I see at least one of the windows is open and others have curtains on them...

A very classy palace.

If I hadn't enlarged, I would have missed that stunning tile work. Very beautiful.

Wow, you really can appreciate the artistry and detail once the photo is enlarged.

Such symmetry ... you had to get back to tiles someday, they've been missing for a while.

The tiles are almost invisible if not enlarged, then comes the surprise.
