JM, this is a treasure. An amazing accident of angles and images and you have composed it to make the best of all. Excellent shot.

What a find JM, that lady in black looks kind of familiar I wonder if it is a likeness of someone famous?

joo said...

It's delightful!

San said...

The longer I look at it, the more I like it. It reveals its beauty slowly.

Fantastic shot.

Oh, what a find indeed! And what a superb composition/capture, JM! Amazing the things one can find even when you're not looking for anything! Hope your week is going well!

An interesting painting. For some reason it makes me think of Wallace Simpson.

T. Becque said...

Absolutely fantastic photo JM! Love the colors, angles, and architecture.
PS - I met Cieldequimper of Versailles DP, and we were talking about blogs we enjoyed and your name came up of course, and then we both admitted that we couldn't pronounce the name of your town (which I was glad to hear I wasn't the only one)! :)

Steven (Cavite DP) said...

JM, From where you are when you shot this one is truly the exact place it should be shot! GREAT JOB WITH ALL THE ANGLES! Plus the Lady looks a happy but I think at night it would look a bit scary for me hahaha

Very interesting photo and composition. Could be part of a project of "Women in Black."

Dorian Susan said...

I'm a big fan of street art...this is a great find. Love how you framed the shot with the buildings along the street.

VP said...

I like everything in this picture, above all the framing and the 'soft' contrast between the pastel colors and the black and white!

cieldequimper said...

I see TBecque has been telling you all about my quanders about the pronunciation of Oeiras! ;-)

I can't even begin to describe how much I love this shot with the colours, the shade, the sunshine, the street lamp and the lady who for some reason reminds me of Edith Piaf...

Sérgio Pontes said...

Ia a jurar que já passei nessa rua, onde foi essa foto tirada?

RedPat said...

I love how you have 'framed' her! Nice one.

Sailor said...

Beautiful picture!

Mama Zen said...

How cool!

Pagan Sphinx said...

That is a really great composition you created. I love it. :-)

Randy said...

What a find! I love it.

Leif Hagen said...

Who is that lady in black? Edith Piaf?

michelangelo in the kitchen said...

I agree with Sharon. I thought of her when I first saw the painting. Interesting subject!

Jacob said...

I think Sharon is right - it is Wallace Simpson! A fascinating shot ... you're photographic eye served you well here. But some dingbats had to ruin the painting with their scribblings!

Julie said...

Interesting stencil, Jose, made outstanding by your framing. Actually,not to deprecate Lisbon, but this is something that I would expect from Jilly or Nathalie and their village. Do you have any idea who the portrait represents? There is a small resemblance to Wallace Simpson.

ladyfi said...

Wow - what a fabulous shot! And such a cheerful mural in this lovely old stret.

Amin said...

Beautiful photo!

Joan Elizabeth said...

This type street art is charming. Others have mentioned the framing, its great, especially the frame of light. This is a very special shot.

Irina said...
