I seem to have missed quite a few of your posts - just caught up. You have a wonderfully varied subject matter. This blue is sublime. The fountain has seen better days but it's still beautiful.

There are some lovely detail here and the color is wonderful.

It is a lovely, cool, blue color. It is hard to imagine the age of this fountain and that it is still there.

Are you sure you weren't following me during my recent Portuguese trip? ;) It's only a week since I returned but I've seen so many familiar places already in your blog.

Someone took water from this fountain and started to wash his car.

Superb! Love the color and the detail! I do love fountains and loved all the ones I saw while living in Europe -- particularly in Portugal and Italy! Terrific captures as always, JM! Hope your new week goes well!

An amazing color for a fountain, it is a good thing they rebuilt it after the quake.

Sabuga could be called Sa-blue-ca. Interesting color. It doth appear, however, that this fountain could use a bit of repair...

Did you ever figure out why the thumbnails are not appearing on your "My other blogs" gadget? I only have one that shows up, too. They were fine a couple of days ago.

Even in this state of disrepair the Portugal blue shines on. MB
