I like colors and also this near old tower.

Dina said...

What's it like to have one's own chapel, I wonder.

Olivier said...

belle maison, avec cette tour.

Love how the painted building is built as a part of the stone tower and gateway.

As delicious as a lemon cake!

I love the colors of your city JM. They make me smile.

Such a contrast between the smooth side of this colorful building and the rough stone of the tower behind it.

Another photo that is simply a delight to look at because of its subject matter, composition, light, color and sharpness! In other words, it's about perfect!

I covet your coven. Are covens dangerous? Do they have witches, also?

You probably ought to be more careful. I'd hate to read this line in the newspaper: "Oeiras City Daily photographer missing. Last seen entering a coven. If you spot him, report to the nearest witching station." ;-)

JM said...

@Lowell: LOL!

How colorful and delightful! I could probably benefit from having my own chapel! I did LOL at Lowell's comment! What a hoot! Hope your week is going well, JM!

Unusual colors, great tower!

Kay said...

I'm with Lowell! I think ordinary zoos, churches, and public squares seem a safer bet! This one is so pretty, lovingly cared for (and no peculiar symbols). Beautiful shot! I love the colors and moods of your city.

Linda fachada. Encantadora.

A lovely building to see.

Now these colours remind me of Seville! Pity it's private, I would have loved a peek inside! There seems to be an interesting entrance next to that mysterious tower...

Pretty big to be a private chapel.
Great job, JM!

Liking the contrast captured between the painted house and the ruggedness of the brickwork on the bell tower.

What a surprising choice of colour.

Randy said...

Beautiful choice of trim color.

Joan Elizabeth said...

The orange seems a tad gaudy to me.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

It's just so perfect JM, it would be fascinating to see what it looked like inside.

Halcyon said...

That's nice to have, I suppose.

JM said...

@PerthDP: Well, if I knew the owners of this property I would go in and take a shot. :-)
