Here's a detail of an old building decorated with paintings representing scenes and sentences taken from the film "José e Pilar", that describes the life of José Saramago - Portuguese writer awarded with the Nobel Prize for Literature - and his wife, Pilar del Rio.
Among many other sentences, we can read "We always get to the place where we are expected".
Supported by several entities, this artwork has been made by several artists around two years ago, but it's still in good conditions and worth to be seen.

this is a fantastic composition ful of interest and very well executed. the colours are wonderful and you have managed the light perfectly. the flaking paint on the wall has created a very appealing effect and some lovely textures.

a really fascinating mural rendered even more fascinating by the excellent sharpness and the exquisite light and colour management of your picture. You've given good depth to the graphical image and placed the window superbly in the frame. The textured walls revealed by the peeled off paint enrich the composition in a marvellous way. Congratulations and thank you!
Happy new year and all the best!

Hi dear Ana
Wow seeming like a love story, very suitable with the beginning of new year. I like this pastel color touch very much. Errosions on the wall add good atmosphere.
Thank you for you sharing and have a good day!

Hello Ana. Art painting on the wall. Great quality. The photo has a morbid charm. Well seen and realized.

Excellent colorful photo. Well composed with the window next to the wall painting. Great details.

Olá, amiga Ana,
cuando he leído el título de tu foto, he pensado, somos nosotros.
Pero no, son Saramago y su esposa, y nosotros no merecemos ser recordados en una pintura mural.
Me gusta la nitidez y el colorido de la imagen, sus bonitos detalles y la calidad de la luz.
El encuadre es eficaz y elegante, y la composición es impecable.
Pili e Josep
Un excelente año 2013 para tu familia también.

Superb capture of this strong wall art work in great details along with the burst of vivid colors adding that all important impact. Compo works fine and I simply love the vibrancy and contrast they create to the environment. Excellent clarity and sharpness. Great shot, Congrast. TFS

This is definitely a better than average graffiti, at least intellectually. The real value of the photo is the combination of the painting and quotes with the areas of cracked plaster, the window and the pavement. In this way you have created something much more interesting than just a photo of a painting.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Ah, si ce mur pouvait parler ,il en aurait des histoires à rencontrer. L'image est d'une superbe netteté.

A wonderful wall painting, with known author portrait with his wife. So well painted, and no less pic. collected, fine clarity and good light on.
Exquisite art detail, I'd add a map with direction to futur tourists to see, but that's only my attitude about.
adramad (27550) 2013-01-04 8:10
Una pintura realmente bonita y que transmite un gran homenaje para ese gran personaje, a nivel de la gente de la calle.
La composicion es esplendida, con la ventana y la vieja pared, llena de desconchones en su fachada, un precioso trabajo de esta escena de la calle. Me encanta.
Te deseo un Nuevo Año pleno de salud y prosperidad, que falta nos hace...
Buen fin de semana.

That is a truly beautiful artwork, and such a wonderful way to liven up buildings. Your POV is again perfect to show this off in its context as being a class piece of art, but also part of a building, as the window shows. Really nicely done, I would love to see this kind of street art.
All the best

Splendid shot with excellent sharpness and clarity.It is a very creative photo, which tells us a special story of real life.Very well done.
chrislo (2173) 2013-01-04 14:09
Even if some parts seem to be damaged, this wall remains a beautiful canvas which you have framed extemely well to give a very strong image visually. The colours and lighting are also very attractive. Very nice work.

Ana - a lovely and faithful recording of this bit of street art. I like the different styles that have been used in the composition of the work; the almost fractal gray section at lower left matches well with the more lifelike styles of their faces. Good framing to include the window and surrounding walls for context and texture.

Hello Ana - This is a marvellous shot. I love the colour palette, the subject matter and all the wonderful textural and decorative detail. Excellent quality too. Warmest wishes for 2013. Rosemary

Oi Anna, esta é uma grande imagem e excelente memória dessa grande pessoa que era o José inesquecível, homenagem linda. Muito bom enquadramento, composição e qualidade. Trabalho Chaming perfeitamente feito. Parabéns Senhora. Obrigado por compartilhar o seu bom trabalho.
Boa noite e semana feliz.
Saudações do sul da Espanha.
mkamionka (24505) 2013-01-06 12:06
lovely graffiti, I like how you have positioned it asymmetrically in the frame -sharing the space with the window which adds a nice reality touch here.
Great sharpness and color.
Very well done,
vasilpro (40192) 2013-01-07 12:11
Wonderful photo with a beautiful graffiti, TFS!
After many days today is my first day in 2013 writing critiques to my TE friends, so Happy New Year, Vasilis.

This mural painting on an old building is a piece of art. It still looks wonderful but who knows for how long because a lot of damage to the wall.
The photo has good composition and fantastic light management and colors.
jcpix (3261) 2013-01-27 4:42
Another great street scene, so colorful and well composed. The textures are amazing and really help define the age and character of this wall as they are literally peeling away. Even without anyone in the scene it feels lively due to the mural. It's a very interesting and isolated section of this street. Thanks for sharing.
lpi (4424) 2013-01-29 1:33
superbe composition de rue, j'aime beaucoup ce genre de cliché!
J'aime ton cadrage et les nombreux détails de cette belle façade.
jmdias (45780) 2013-02-06 0:53
gostei do grafite, a composição está muito bem iluminada e enquadrada. a fachada em ruínas ajuda na beleza da composição. belo trabalho.
