I am glad you placed yesterday's detail photos into context today.

We visited Sintra and went up tot he Pena Palace when we were in Portugal. It was spectacular, although it was cloudy and foggy on our December day there and we did not have a view from the palace.

That's a very special and unique fountain. Great mosaic tiles and sweet sculpts.

Beautiful! The children are much smaller than I thought they would be from yesterday's close up. Love the colors.

This is even more beautiful in its entirety! I am not surprised that this is in Sintra, the magnificent city that is a museum in itself! Thanks for the art you share through your excellent photography! Bravissimo!!!

VP said...

Wonderful, and I like the way you have chosen to show it to us!

Bela foto!

Leif Hagen said...

I never would have guessed that they were on a water fountain! I should have thought more..... drinking kids!

Jack said...

Beautiful. It is interesting to look very closely, like yesterday, to focus on details, and then to step back, like today, to see and feel the whole impression.

That's a gorgeous foutain, what color! And your original photo is back for your ID, it's a good one! I have to ask, is that you?

Randy said...

I did not expect one that looked like this. Nice shot!

Small City Scenes said...

No wonder those poor babies are thirsty---there is no water in the fountain.
Very impressive. the babes are much smaller than I thought. Good idea to post this way. MB

The close up before the long shot was a great way to show this.
