I see the crane but my eye was attracted to the little red house squished between the buildings.

My eyes were drawn to the little red house, just like Andy's. ;-) So true, cranes are ubiquitous this time of the year (one hopes they signal some economic recovery). I even managed to have pieces of cranes in my pictures during a photo shoot in the Alps. ;-)

Ain't that the truth! And they never fly away!

Saw Lisbon featured on HGTV last night. Very interesting. It was about a couple where the guy had received a one-year contract to coach soccer in Lisbon; I think they were moving from California. They loved Lisbon!

i love the big palm in front!

Halcyon said...

You'd see a lot more of them if you were in Toronto! :)

Wow Andy is right that little red house looks so inviting. Right now we are going through a building boom, there are cranes everywhere in my town.

How true about the cranes everywhere!! But that big palm tree caught my attention -- beautiful! Terrific capture as always, JM! Have a wonderful weekend!

I very liked this part of Lisbon with the Sé church and with the thorny house. Simly beautifil...
Have a nice weekend.

VP said...

You are absolutely right! At least one, but even more... everywhere!

Sharon said...

Isn't that the truth? The worst is when you've traveled somewhere and want to get a few shots of a famous landmark only to find it covered with scaffolding. That happened to me one year with Big Ben.

RedPat said...

Halcyon is right - it is hard to take a pic in Toronto without catching a crane! Cool shot showing the layering of the buildings.

Linda said...

Indeed, always a crane. Lovely capture and beautifully coloured buildings.

Jack said...

Cranes are good. Cranes = economic activity = money flowing = people working = people happy.

Randy said...

Love the architecture.

Karl Demetz said...

What would be a city without cranes?
A ruin within a few years?
Well, they are not aesthetically pleasing, but if you like, there is Photoshop... ;-)

Os meus olhos foram para o lado direito: A Casa dos Bicos onde está a Fundação Saramago.

Hilde said...

love the colours of the houses! nice picture J.M.!

Dina said...

Maybe the crane is the only way to know from what century your picture is.

Cezar and Léia said...

What is positive about them is that normally it means some economic activity thus jobs... So I kinda like them! :)
God bless you!
