This is one beautiful image. I love the textures of the wall and how the blue window stands out.

Very strong image! Like all the different colors of the brick too:-)
( for me could do without this sign though...;-))

@Marleen: LOL! I thought and thought about that sign. It does fight for attention. I tried several crops, and this won, this time. Another day, another crop?!? Photoshopping it out was a possible solution, but it was so there, and then became part of the reason for the image--those pretty things someone put in their window, while the window frame and exterior around the building looked a tad grungy. Thanks very much for your thoughts on this. Photoshopping the sign out would be a relatively easy alternative. :))

An interesting window with its complement of bottles and vases. Good one to spot and shoot. Well done.

@Don: Thanks, Don. This small, very old apartment building was in a lackluster location. It struck me how the person who lives here has decorated to improve the view.

The composition is really fantastic Karla... a very well balanced image ! I love the repetition of the blue tiles and the blue bottles. What an artistic eye ! Have a lovely day :)

What a clever idea - a blue window in a red brick wall. The blue glass objects give a sense of the rather neat, artistic person who lives there, as does the sign warning drivers not to park. Well seen!

@Ann Baldwin: Thanks, Ann! That parking sign did give me second thoughts, though.
