... the building that Jack built?

Kate said...

This reminds me of the mirrored fun houses at the Fair.

Stefan Jansson said...

I hope the new building will look like this!

This is so much more interesting than the normal cladding. Love it. Diane

I love this photo!

Fabulous shot!

Rob Mandy said...

Well, this denotes a fertile imagination. So much nicer than planks, or that shoe shop add I saw covering the Ponte degli Sospiri in Venice a couple of years ago. For example.

Lowell said...

That's wonderful. Although it does make a little dizzy! That's probably just what you need in Lisbon - a new Cartier's store! :)

This one is superb. Some of them are horrible...

Bob Crowe said...

Looks like either Frank Ghery or Timothy Leary had their way with this building. Wonderful.

Randy said...

That is so cool!

Joan Elizabeth said...

This is such a fabulous shot. I could look at it for ages.

Cathy Hudspeth said...

Very imaginative to hide the construction like this!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Very cool shot JM, red, white and blue are always winning colours even if it is just a fake facade.

orvokki said...

Very funny costyme for hiding. Love this.

Kay said...

This is certainly an improvement on a typical construction site. It actually adds something to the urban landscape!

Cezar and Léia said...

This looks so much nicer than the usual stuff that normally applies for this purpose...
God bless you!

That is so cool. Not unusual to see these screens, but love the fact that they did something unusual with it.

Nathalie said...

Wow, not a creative capture of a mirror building but a creative paint job over work in progress? I love it!

The artistry in your country, old and new, is amazing!

Gunn said...
