All but green

By Paddy_fox
As I was taking photos of a sunrise! This building was behind me and rather interesting. The tiles really were very green and I don't want the photo to look over edited with to much contrast but the tiles really were bright and very very green! I like this photo for being sort of old and modern at the same time. I would love to have seen the house in the older days! Taken in Albufeira, Portugal on my holiday.

I just spotted this one. I know the building well as we visited Albufeira regularly for several years. Up on the hillside promenade with great views over the beach. The tiles are indeed very vivid and like you I've always thought that it must have been stunning originally. I seem to remember the last time I saw it there was a lot of low level grafitti and a lot of tiles missing from the first time we saw it. Would be quite a project to renovate and has unfortunately got worse year on year. Did you notice the house on the adjacent corner which has been renovated to a very high standard? I must have some shots of this place and seeing this one has promted me to have a look through my hard drives.
Your picture does the place justice and its good to see it again.
