Óbidos, Porta da Vila, the southern town gate is decorated with this Azulejos from the 18th century .
As we experience heavy rain there I had a difficult time to photo this tiles, and the angel I shut was due to the umbrella position above me I had to take into consideration: so is a bit askew.
The painted tile built in the 1700s and dedicated to "Our Lady of Piety".

Parfaitement captée cette scčne sous la pluie. Belle arcitecture et de toute beauté les anges peint sur les tuiles. On ne voit plus de tels travaux de nos jours. La porte et le balcon sont magnifiques.
Félicitations!... et bon simanche,

My dear friend a great POV.
There's some lack of sharpness here or perhaps blurring...(in my humble opinion) but it's a good work anyway,,

A good capture of this beautiful tile work so typical of Portugal and Southern Spain. The decorative detail is nicely rendered with good colours and reasonable sharpness.

Hi Ike !!
this photos is big in the " wow " factor.......the richness of the tiles is most impressive. I thinks that you achieve a very good result under the difficult circumstances.
it is a photo to look again & again.........

Ce que j'aime dans cette photo ce sont les couleurs, notamment ce bleu qui est trčs typique des azulejos portugais! J'aurais cadré plus haut pour avoir l'arc de la partie bleue dans sa totalité, d'autant plus que le bas de la photo ne présente aucun intéręt particulier.
Une bonne semaine pour toi Ike!
