Is it not unusual to see a round chimney on a residence?

Lowell said...

A stunning photo in every respect. Fantastic colors and the composition is wonderful and I love that tile roof contrasting with the brick chimney!

JM said...

@Dina: It is indeed.

Jim said...

Terrific design.

Mark said...

Yes, you don't see many round chimneys in domestic architecture. Great colour for a house.

Kate said...

A round chimney isn't exactly commonplace around here either. A great find for the theme.

Birdman said...

I agree, Dina. The shape of this one caught my eye too.

Round and square and triangle, plus a wave. Fantastic!

That is a very unusual chimney and an even more unusual roof. I love the details in these old houses.

I love that round brick chimney but, I really like the design around that window.

Nice shot, I have just come back from holidays and visited Lisboa, what a nice part of the world you live in!

A nice chimney. Love that shade of orange. :)

An interesting proposal for the theme day. Well done, thanks for sharing and have a good week.

That style of house is what would e called a "Cape Cod" house in the USA, distinguished by its upstairs dormer windows.

I can't remember ever seeing a round chimney on a house.

Wonderful - love the colours & shapes!

Kay said...

Beautiful shapes, colors, and textures! The chimneys around here are pretty ordinary -- certainly nothing approaching a round brick one!

Jack said...

This is one of my favorite Theme Day chimney images. Nice one, JM.

This is a beautiful contribution to theme day - great shapes and colours.

Bob Crowe said...

Much more about yellow than chimneys, but I'm very happy with the result.

brattcat said...

nice choice for the theme!

Carolina Tavares said...

Super charmosas. Fachada e cor. Bem caliente.

Lots of wonderful shapes to make up this fabulous shot JM. It may be a very old house, but it looks in immaculate condition, that roof is pristine!

Majestic, and one of the strangest seen around...
