Nice! All the same---yet all different. Cool idea. MB
Nossa, que coincidência... o meu último post ( no blog http://moradadevenus.blogspot.com/ ) foi sobre Art Deco em Miami, onde estive recentemente... estas fachadas são magníficas!
Wow!!So many colors and all totally different :-)
eu já passei por aí algumas vezes, adoro as cores dos prédios
Some very classy, stylish, cool real estate - big $$$ no doubt!
Lots of interesting buidlings to look at here!
A style one either loves or doesn't.
I love all the different colors!
Interesting architecture, so colourful! ... just missing the azul?
Colorful, if not much azul. Could almost be in Miami
Peter, Rob and Mandy,You are absolutely right, not much azul (blue) in this neighbourhood, I don't know where the name comes from. Maybe many of the buildings were blue back in the 30's...
My art teacher told me: "forget about shapes and likeness - colour is the key!" The proof is here.
Okay, my knowledge of Portuguese is pretty basic but why is it called Azul? Ooops, just saw the answer... ;-)
OK, nice set of building, but why 'azul' if any color is present except blue?
A Spring-like way of looking at architecture!We need the colors!
As I understand azul means blue - am I right? The buildings are fabulous, Art Deco in its best, bur where is blue?Seriously, the yellowish one is marvellous!
This would be a favorite place for me. I love art deco buildings and these are great.
Interesting selection of colours!
What a lovely collage of architecture... each distinctive in their own special way :)
This reminds so much of the pastel colors that are prevalent in Boca Raton, Florida! Lovely buildings and I would guess a fun place to live!
Ok, so I'm not the only one wondering where all the blue is in this neighborhood (I was thinking my Spanish was off for a while - I know you're Portuguese, but I've been using Spanish to help me out here)! But what a great series you did, love to see all the different colors and architecture.
thanks for the visit , nice architecture !
Beautiful buildings, love the colors.
What great buildings, especially the yellow one. How beautiful.
Andei a pesquisar (é um entretenimento e uma virtude...lol)e encontrei isto:«...o bairro chamou-se 'azul', e continua a chamar-se apesar das mudanças que descaracterizaram essa razão, porque todos os prédios eram brancos com as ferrarias das portas e janelas, até mesmo as persianas, em azul...»,retirado do blog:http://www.bairroazul.net/myportal/memo/lvisitas.asp?pag=0
