Awesome, colorful and fun and another terrific capture, JM!! Fine dark whiskey indeed!! I could really enjoy an evening there, but not sure I could live with it on a daily basis!!

This is so beautiful and so interesting. One can't help but wonder who sat there and for what purpose...

Another interesting thing is that the colors and shapes clash but somehow when seen together, they seem to work.

S-o-o-o-o ornate and detailed! I prefer clean lines but this is still eye candy.

More spectacular tile work and elaborate columns. The architecture where you live is just amazing!

I really like the buildings you show TNT have Moorish influence. I am more drawn to them than the blue and white tiles.
