At this moment, Agueda has more than colourful umbrellas. Street art is all around, including lots of painted benches like this one that represents a kiss. The bikes probably belonged to some clients of the little restaurant that is in front.
Once again the little town of Águeda was decorated with colourful umbrellas. Many hundreds of them have been hung with wires, bringing so much colour and also visitors to the city. The ground gets some really nice shadows, too. But his year the urban art has really invaded the city - wall paintings and colourful benches are just exemples of what we can find there.
They will be there till September.

your picture is wonderful and artistic too, a great simple composition and interesting, suggested story. There's fine interaction between the bench and the bikes. The colours are pleasingly bold and the textures provide an intriguing, atmospheric backdrop. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Excellent photo with a very good composition, the presence of the bicycles are a positive add to your great shot, the way they painted the bence is a really an artwork. Excellent warm colors and you framed your shot very well.
Have a nice evening,

At first I did not spot the art on the bench, I thoug your title referred to the bikes :)
This is a nice subtle work of art, and I guess would appeal to fans of comics too, as it has that kind of artwork to it. It's a great burst of color in this earthy colored scene.

Ola Ana ,
What a beautiful composition , in its simplicity . I like especially the texture and tonalities of the old wall .

This is a photo I like very much. The bench is amusing and colourful, but I like the faded wall and the two bikes just as much. Everything here has combined into a work of street art. You observed and handled this perfectly.

Ola Ana, So not only umbrellas are in this town. This is very pleasant artistic composition with faded wall, bikes and interesting bench. Great idea to paint it like this.

The rough wall provides a suitable background for this collection of ordinary items, typical for any city in the world. They are nicely arranged here, along a line in this pleasant composition. A very simple but yet attractive picture, a fine street scene from daily life.

Linda foto, com composição minimalista excelente e atraente!
Nitidez, exposição e cores muito boas também!
Gostei muito da ideia e do seu trabalho!
Até mais e uma ótima semana prá você!

Hi Ana, I like this pleasing, simple composition because of the contrast in textures and colours. The wall itself is lovely enough to be the focus of your image, but the pop-art bench then adds another interesting dimension to the photo.

Muito bem caçada! Da miniatura não se percebe a razão do título, o que aguça a curiosidade. E a composição, com aquele "casal" de bicicletas, faz imaginar histórias...
1 abraço, José.

nice, very nice "small" photo!

This sounds like a most enjoyable festival, with colourful art all around! I just love the idea of painting the benches! I thought, from the thumbnail, that maybe the bikes were kissing!
This is a very well composed shot which has a nicely angled perspective, with excellent textural details.
Have a lovely day,

Well presented capture in an artistic way, two bikes and a bench contrasting with the warm textures of walls and street
And the kiss is on the bench
Well done, regards

This is a cracking example of street observation. Simple, well-framed, and the grafitti kiss almost seems to be echoed in the proximity of the two bicycles. Very enjoyable!

Las bicicletas y la banca forman un grupo interesante en este escenario soleado.
abmdsudi (40240) 2014-08-12 7:53
Your attention to detail shines through and this is well worth the shot of a real wall beauty and its supporting props in a nice juxtaposition. Great colour, contrast and lovely specks of vivid colour to boost the visual effect. Fine shot, Congrats.

You have made such an artistic composition of this street. The crumbling wall makes a wonderful, textured BG and contrasts well with the quirky bench. Great observation - very well done and TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

Una composicion fantastica, ideal ese banco decorado, las bicis son un complemento estupendo, sobre esas paredes que proporcionan tan buenas texturas a la imagen.
Muy bien la luminosidad y la nitidez.
Bien visto y captado
Que tengas una buena tarde-noche.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Very cute shot. Love the painting on the bench of the couple kissing. You could have turned the bycicle to face each other as if they were kissing too.
Excellent POV and good quality.
