Tuesdays Transformations

This is the last of Tuesday Transformations and I think I saved some superior ones for last.


Just brilliant, Brives Charensak, France by Patrick Commecy.



While this would not do at all for the houses of Mykonos or Santorini where white and blue are the only colours allowed, citizens of Palmitas, Mexico, have a different view. By German Crew.



Clearly the angle is different, but this one is pretty good. Note the scaffolding at the side. Maybe another wall is receiving treatment. The building is called Full Moon Hostel, a youth hostel I guess. It makes me think of the Full Moon parties in Thailand. Quite appropriate then. Bristol, England, by Paul Green.

    1. Gosia, it is funny how one appeals to some people and not others.

  3. Love the first transformation. Trompe-l'œil at its very best.
    And like the colourful houses too.

    1. EC, what a fine spelling and typing effort. You must have pushed the carriage back a little bit before hitting e.

    1. Lee, it is a bit spooky, but I guess you don't see it inside. But who knows what happens inside!

  6. I LOVE that first one and want to paint the side of my flats like that. I'm going to save that picture so I can look at it again later, maybe make a bookmark from it. Like I did with that owl building.

  8. Normally brightly and randomly painted houses used to look a bit unplanned. But I am changing my mind. Perhaps the good citizens of Palmitas know something.

    1. Hels, it may not look quite so good at ground level and the colours are not those I would associate so much with Mexico.

  9. I think I prefer the white/blue Greek vista to the multi coloured German vista.

    1. Victor, you really have to see the white with blue trim in Greece, in person to appreciate how good it is.

    1. Sami, I wonder if it is meant to represent anything.
