Those ornate street lights are real treasures and in this photo offers a wonderful contrast to the simple structure behind it. I followed the link you suggested on my post this morning, and you are absolutely correct. The church is a remarkable structure despite its damage and decay. So beautiful!!

There's a sister lamppost in Versailles which in turn leads to another DPB!: http://versaillesdailyphoto.blogspot.fr/2011/03/les-fenetres-etranges.html

I'm sitting here in a cafe, having just walked off the street taking photos of aging street lamps. Suddenly we are connected, though a long ways away. Funny.

These are such beautiful street lamps! I wish we had more like them today, they surely would be better to look at than the kind we have these days!! Oh, I know, I'm an old-fashioned broad!! What can I say???

Beautiful shot. That is a gorgeous lamppost up against the brightly painted house. I also love that some of the windows are open others curtained. It makes a beautifully composed photo.

Love those ornate lamps and post too. Nice shot with the colorful building and all those windows in the background. MB

Love these things. Everytime I see a unique kind of street lamp, I take a pnoto! I'd guess this is rather old as is the building in the background. Nice contrast between the lamp and the terracotta of the house.

I took a picture of one yesterday, which I will post later this week. It wasn't as pretty as this one though!

Pretty contrast between house and lamps.

This is lovely. I hope photographers aren't the only one who appreciate the beauty of things like these.

nice composition.

Those lanterns are marvelous. I am glad that many places choose to install traditional lamps instead of the plain modern ones. And these look great against the simple but colorful backdrop of a beautifully painted building.

VP said...

love the composition, and again that familiar shade of red!

I love these! It's always fun to find these kinds of details. :)

Gunn said...

Beautiful details. You have eyes for contemporary art as well as old things in and around Oeiras.
Thanks for sharing!
