Christmas Bauble

 
 
Rossio Square, Lisbon
 
The bauble looked great all lit up at night (have seen some photos on Fb).

This is quite unique or at least I've not seen anything like it. I'll bet is is pretty all lit up. I'd like to see the size of tree you'd need to hang this thing!

Great 2nd shot...showing again your wonderful eye for composition!

A bauble or a cage? Love the geometric pattern on the plaza.

Oh, that would be beautiful all lit up for the night hours!! I've never seen one like that before! I, too, always love the pattern of the courtyard! Have a great weekend, JM!!

Sylvia K said...

Oh, I meant to mention that I love all the birds, look as though they've gathered for a great show!!

That is one very big Christmas ornament.

VP said...

I really love this: creative, simple and spectacular!

Kay said...

Wonderful shots, both! Does the ornament tip? It looks level in the first shot, tilted in the second. Or has the perspective made it seem so?

JM said...

@Kay: It is tilted although it doesn't seem so from the angle of the top shot.

Jack said...

Wow, JM, that first photograph is breathtaking! The round form next to the vertical form, the wavy stone patterns in the piazza, and then the pigeon convention! Amazing composition.

Randy said...

I love it with the pigeons in the shot.

Merisi said...

Isn't it amazing how artists manage to add something without disturbing the symmetry?

I wished I could have seen this splendid plaza all lit up at night!

Sami said...

Lovely Christmas ornament.

It looks good right there too JM, so different to all the beautifully classic sculpture surrounding it.

There are a lot of interesting elements here. I love that pavement. I saw something similar in Brazil, but only on a small sidewalk.

That's a big one.
