This is an architecture detail from Popeye Village.
It is a group of rustic and ramshackle wooden buildings located at Anchor Bay in the north-west corner of the Mediterranean island of Malta, two miles from the village of Mellieħa.
It was built as a film set for the production of the 1980 live-action musical feature film Popeye, produced by Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney Productions and starring Robin Williams. Today it is open to the public as an open-air museum and family entertainment complex.
I didn't see the movie, but I'm a big fan of the cartoons and of the spinach :D

This little ensemble of objects makes for a humorous and interesting graphical composition. Well observed and perfectly presented.

such a charming detail from the place! i can even see a face over there, the twin windows being the eyes, the barrel being the nose and the blue shelf being the mouth :)

This must be a very strange place to visit, to actually walk in a film set from a movie like that, and a movie based on a cartoon too. When I saw your title, I thought that yes indeed it did look like a popeye style place, but little to know that it literally is from the movie! I've not seen the film either, but this is a great reminder of the cartoon itself.
All the best

This is very eye-catching. The strong red, blue and white will not pass by unnoticed among the many thumbnails. I am sure the slight tilt is not your fault, but that tt was built like this. After all, Popeye's house could not be perfect.

Salut daniel, imi place cum ai tras aici, ai incadrat doar elementele care contau. Culori tari, rosul atrage privirile intotdeauna. Foarte fain, imi place.

The colors are really strong and eye catching.
I don´t have the imagination of Rigoletto, but I do like spin age.

Jolie composition, très colorée. La fenêtre est un peu bancale....les constructeurs avaient dû vider le tonneau avant de réaliser la construction -)

One of the most charming and original windows in your gallery Daniel!
Your perfect close-up and POV,vivid colors and contrast between them make the shot truly magnificent and it has really something from a "fairytale" feeling to it.
Have a nice day

a big Popeye fan as you know, and this is just wonderful. Simple elements and colours but eye-catching and perfectly composed. Artistic and compelling shot executed and presented beautifully. Love it!

Almost a fairy tale picture with the ton and the window in red blue colour.
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

in questo genere di fotografie sei bravissimo.
Sai isolare a perfezione il particolare per farne composizioni di grande effetto. Meglio ancora se, come in questo caso, anche i colori sono assai vivaci e colpiscono l'osservatore per il loro accostamento. E' solo un piccolo partocare ed eppure ne hai fatto una grande foto.
Ciao e buona serata

Génial comme découverte, aussi bon dans le contraste des couleurs et le cadrage serré, très belle présentation et note
ChrisJ (115451) 2013-11-06 11:17
Good sharpness, and I love the warm cold color contrast between the red and blue. Excellent tight framing and aptly titled withe slightly drunken lean of the window! The diffused light works well here. The ropes add a nautical theme. Tfs!

Stunning capture Daniel!
Love the graphism and the vibrant colours. I love how the windows form into a face. Great find! Highly captivating!

This place seems to be very photogenic with its strong colours and its anachronic presence. I like the close POV that just underlines a few details of this complex.
