This are typical windows from Sidi Bou Said.This small town is today one of the best examples of the traditional architecture of Tunisia.This was possible thanks to the English Baron of Erlanger, who came to this place in the beginning of the 20th century and took charge of the revalorization of the buildings, of the traditional architecture and, of course, of the usage of the blue and white colours.
Unfortunately, when I go there, I never have much time to visit the city. Hope to go there one of these days and spend a whole day discovering all the little streets, so full of details.

very well captured and composed shot with two dominant and nicely contrasting colours. Perfect focus/sharpness and well visible details of the windows. Very well managed harsh light. Well done!
Tfs and best wishes.

This is an interesting POV of some very unusual windows. The colours are superb. The photo is lovely and sharp which helps with viewing the glorious detail on the windows. It is really nice that the sky is a slightly deeper blue. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Ana, lovely image, the colors are very bold, and striking on this building! Excellent composition, with great sharpness, details, and color. I love that blue sky! I now have another 'Ana' to know from Portugal :-)

I like also door and windows photography but never imagined this beautiful blue one before. Your perfect position created a wonderful scene in two beautiful blue and white colors. White facade adds great value to your frame with your informative note. Congratulations.

this blue-white composition reminds me the architecture of the houses in the islands of greece. Really nice work and POV

A great contrasting white & blue on this picture. You have a very nice gallery. Congratulation, Tibo

Wow what incredible windows. The blue and white is a good bright and pleasing combination perhaps chosen as it is a cool combination in a place where temps might be high well it is an extremely aesthetic combination for sure.
You have captured the intricacies well here and the angle with the deep blue sky in the background adds to the beauty of the picture.
