I like the gritty detail here and also that diagonal line through the upper left as an interesting element to your image composition.
Thanks for including the informative commentary along with the image.

I am realizing that I see a lot of diagonals, which is good news, since I always thought of myself as being a rectangle person, due to my professional bias.

There are 3 layers of construction in this picture. The first one appears to be a mud wall or an adobe wall. The second one, which is the one that caught my eye, is made of a mix of mud and crushed roof tiles. This layer is supposed to make the house less hot by providing insulation. The third layer is the finishing, the white thin layer with the final coat of paint.

Yes, we are certainly aligned. Wonderful layers, very well captured and exposed. People seem to come up with similar solutions to similar problems no matter where they are. Human mind works the same everywhere.
