" If you want to really understand a human being, look at what he does in a moment of absolutely free choice-making, and then you shall be utterly surprised; you may see a saint fornicating, and a prostitute praying; you may see a doctor drinking poison; you will be surprised by your friend stabbing you, and an enemy saving your life; you may see a servant who is a lord in his deeds, and a lord who is viler in his deeds than the most despised servant for his chores; you may see kings taking bribes, and wretches giving out charity" - Mustafa Mahmud

Well-spotted detail for a photo. The bright turquoise wall creates an eye-catching pattern.
Thanks for sharing the wise words in the note!

Kia ora Ahmad (greetings from New Zealand),
I like your composition here. The terracotta jar with a splash of turquoise paint contrasts well with the turquoise bricks. Well done. Cheers, Neil

The composition and color are first rate in this simple image of a terra cotta water jug set against a background of colorful bricks. The uneven brickwork adds texture and interest to the photo. The lines from Mustfa Mahmud are thought provoking. For this, I thank you. Here is one to reciprocate, "You need only to observe... and ponder, and the commonplace become wondrous, and the wondrous commonplace." They are Leonardo da Vinci's words from my book, Math and the Mona Lisa.

Hello Ahmad, Amazing wall of blue bricks, I have never see such colour of bricks. And how strange and lucky that this jar with a fitting patch stood close to it. Very attractive composition.
Have a nice weekend MAlgo

Simple but extremely effective... Color of the wall is unusual and I love the matching color on the jug - did you paint it or have you found it like that?!?!

You have a very beautiful gallery. This picture is very elegant and you have captured the varying textures of the scene exceptionally well. Thoughtful composition and nice horizontal lines running the picture.
