Salut Jean Philippe,
une belle ambiance dans cette ruelle qui débouche sur une lumière très agréable. Les ocres des murs et les couleurs du motif au bout de l'escalier créent une belle harmonie.

Bonsoir Jean Philippe
Jolie photo en contre-plongée de cet escalier qui débouche sur la peinture murale bien éclairée. J'aime bien la rampe centrale qui dirige le regard vers cette murale. Note intéressante. Bien fait.

Voilà qui me rappelle mon week-end à Lisbonne ! Cette ruelle en pente est vraiment typique de la capitale portugaise (surtout du quartier de l'Alfama) avec les draps suspendus, le bougainvillier et le pavage des escaliers.
L'exposition est parfaite.

Salut Jean Philippe
I love these little alleys that are so characteristic of Portugal, Spain, Italy and France. Wandering through them is like stepping back in time and always is a great opportunity to soak up the history and culture if the town, as you have done here. Excellent colours and texture, the light is well balanced and you chose the vertical frame well.
