Balcon

No words needed... or are they?

I like all the details of this photo!

Definitely recommend enlarging this. I'm not certain how I'd feel about that trio (particularly the one in the middle) watching over me while I sipped some wine at the end of the day.

J'aime surtout le fer forge du balcon car je ne sais qui sont les personnages representes.
Bon weekend !!

LOL, I misread the title and left out the 'l'. I was thinking Why would Ceil post photos of Bacon?

I like the angle and the faces are really cool! Looks like a great balcony to take in the views.

Bob Crowe said...

Wouldn't it be eerie to stand out there with those faces looking over you?

T. Becque said...

I like the faces especially with the scroll of the balcony. The bit of red is terrific.

By the way Tucson is very much a blend of modern (hmmm, maybe modern) and western. What I'm trying to say is that it's not uncommon to see "western" reminders all over actually.

Interesting shot. I like the wrought-iron railing but I don't want some grouchy old man looking at me, as brattcat mentioned, while sipping some wine. MB

May I say 'typical', in any well meaning sense...

Malyss said...

Moi ce que j'aime, c'est la petite fleur rouge qui attire le regard, comme une coquette discrète!

Ann said...

The balcony seems quite narrow. Is the building full of this?

Sharon Van Lieu said...

The intricate details make your architecture so fascinating. Well done, Ciel.

this photo is shouting details, fantastic find.

Beautiful photo. I love the perspective. The picture speaks for itself.

Such ornate window toppings! Beautiful. With this trio you'd never feel alone on that balcony. Great perspective.

What a great angle to capture this!
God bless you!

Balconies are essential, I think, to any apartment type building. One needs to get fresh air without traipsing down stairs or riding an elevator...

I don't see these faces as anything but benign...The females are quite lovely and the male is stoned - literally.

All in all, a beautiful balcon!

Gunn said...

beautiful details..... :-)

EG Wow said...

You shot this from such a neat angle...but I fear I might roll back through a window if I try to stand up. :)

2 constatations seulement : les géraniums ne risquent pas de tomber sur la tête d'un quidam et le gros pot (?) n'a pas été garni [idem chez moi pour la grosse poterie d'Anduze -gélive- que je viens de ramener de vacances. J'ai pas le courage avant l'automne :(]

«Louis» wishes le balcon Chez la Vache were this elegant! That's the word!
