That is one clever framing. Beautiful play and light and shadow from this angle.

I like the slit of an opening to the sea.

Beautiful! The placement is a good one, as well.

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Lovely tiles on the side!

Nice petite gallery on the way to the sea! The tile work panels fit well in the space and your photo boxes it perfectly.

Perfect composition. And the panels are really nice too.

I agree, the tiles and view are lovely. Nice to have a crossing under the traffic.

I like the geometry of this shot. I hope to some of these panels, they look interesting.

An interesting composition.

How do they keep spray-painting vandals away?

JM said...

@Per: They don't... For how long will these walls be kept clean? That was my first thought too.

There is one of these tunnels in Fort Lauderdale, from a park to the beach...it's always been scary, though...one never knows who or what one will meet in the dark of the tunnel!

I sure am glad to see that the artwork is commissioned and not the work of some deranged taggers!

Beautiful shot, as usual!

Beautiful colors. You and I had the same idea today.

Like a cave painting: the single shaft of light illuminates the treasure waiting in the dark.

Very neat. I love the tiles and the great perspective to the water. MB

@Serra: Mesmo em frente ao novo monstro chamado Estoril Sol...

I do so like when urban spaces are colored up like this with pretty wall art. Seems like an ideal spot for them. Clever shot, JM.

I don't think you could shoot this any better. It is perfect.
