This style and colour scheme just would not be seen in this country. A shame, it's so lovely and dramatic.

Another of your unusual buildings. The contrast of the two colours is sharp!

What a brilliant mix of colours JM, gorgeous tiles and blue sky, above the ornate balustrade!

Lindo enquadramento e contraste de amarelo e azul!
E o azul intenso e puro do céu a conduzir com os azulejos da casa! Ficou mesmo bem! Bravo, José!

Bjos e feliz fim de semana!

Great yellow and blue contrast with such vivid colors. Interesting patterns on that blue building. Would like to see it....in person.

Terrific capture, JM! Love the vivid blues of the building and skies! I, too, love the tiles and that ornate balustrade! So very beautiful and superb composition as always! Have a great week!

I love the lines and the colors in this photo and I think that one window with no blinds on the blue building adds to the geometry of the scene!

Beautiful!

The colors are bright and beautiful!

Looks like it was built with water instead of bricks. Ideal home for mermaids :)

Such bright colours is what I associate with Portugal. Works so pleasantly there, when well done, like this. Looks out of place elsewhere. Like when you travel somewhere exotic and buy a local piece of handicraft... and when you get home it doesn't fit your decor (unless your home is a museum of handicraft, like mine LOL!)!
