Boa tarde Adelina,
I hope you do not mind me adding this shot to my "Azulejos" theme, as I find this unique art of Portugal most intriguing and fascinating.
I do not remember seeing this in Coimbra, more info about could be addedd to the note. But anyhow, it is nicely taken, especially with the addition of yellow hand-palms.

Kia ora Adelina,
An interesting photo which has taken me a little time to figure out, but then I'm not sure if I have completely. There is a 3-D effect here, although I assume the yellow hands do protrude from the tilework.A well spotted & composed photo. Cheers, Neil
