It's a shame to put that mess over the beautiful tile. It looks like someone has planted a vine to try to cover it up.

You know some of the old plantation houses over here have pipes exposed in the house! They just painted over them! Some folks get kind of artsy! Well, unfortunetly, many don't have that special gift..and one way you can always tell is the choice of colors they use!! ha ha
I actually like this shot..your covering your city well JM!! (grin)
Cheers-

That is a bit of a tangle, isn't it?

I echo the sentiments of the other posters: the tiles trump everything else on the wall.

It's not so bad, I've seen worse :-D... the tiles make it all better too.

JM!

Those tiles are wonderfully ornate and I love the cast shadow from the street lamp!
