What a wonderful photo José, jejeeee! The colour palette is marvellous, and so is the geometry (forms, lines and curves). Furthermore the sky is very atractive.
I'm absolutely fan of this picture, and once again I say "WOOOOOOOW"!
Have a nice weekend.
un abrazo

Luscious colors; reminds me of the Southwest in our country.

WOW, Jose!

Sami said...

Great building and I like the yellow colour of the walls.

Kathy said...

The color is striking against the beautiful blue sky. I'm wondering if it has always been this color.

Interesting building and great colours. Have a good weekend Diane

What a spectacular photo today! It's gorgeous! The color, the lines and shapes, everything about it is perfect. It even has a bit of an "otherworldly" look to it.

Sylvia K said...

A great building and colorful, too!! Terrific capture, as always, Jose!! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend!!

It stands out so beautifully against that sky!

Lowell said...

This is a great piece of "modern" art. And the light plays so well with the various varieties of color!

RedPat said...

Such luscious colours, JM! Like everyone else, I love it!

Bill said...

Absolutely wonderful, Jose. What a great picture!

I always agree with Lowell! This is like a modern art painting, almost not a photograph at all. A gorgeous work of art on your part, JM.

1653!!!! Good heavens that's mind boggling José. The colours are beyond gorgeous!

Jack said...

Beautiful. It looks as much like a painting as a photograph.

Brilliant composition, subject, colors, and textures. And the sky certainly cooperated! Reminds me of the St. Francis de Asis Church at the Taos Pueblo in New Mexico and Georgia O'keeffe's painting.

Is this a real photo?? It looks like a work of art!

So glad they left a part where we can see the face of the original stones.
