Swakopmund is known by its old German buildings, some of them very beautiful and almost hundred years old. The modern buildings got some inspiration in the shapes and colors of the colonial buildings. Here we have a sample with the usual cloudy sky, typical of the mornings in this town.
Swakopmund é famosa por seus edifícios coloniais germânicos, com cerca de 100 anos de idade. Os edifícios mais modernos acompanham esse estilo em termos de formas e cores como vemos aqui. Podemos ver ainda o típico céu nublado das manhãs locais.

What can I say? Excellent geometry in Namibia.
But I know only one city Windhoek there. Thanks for so informative note, I remember about the German heritage there. Simple but very attractive cityscape.

I am struck by your imaginative composition from Swakopmund. You have captured the colours and mood of the coastal mist very well here. I like your creative interpretation of the town's architecture.
Thanks for showing me a new way of looking at a town I am very familiar with.

Good result with all these geometricla forms, well framed with the tower in a focal point, often fog and clouds in this town.

thanks to your recent photos I am becoming very much inclined to visit this amazing country. The landscapes and variety of views is amazing. I like also this picture with the town build so lovely. The colors and the the way they contrast with each other is very pretty. Nice composition focusing on geometry of their lines.
Thanks for sharing

This is a smart and very elegant composition. You made an excellent observation and i like how you have framed the view and cropped the composition tightly. There is very good balance of colours and shapes.
