I have written earlier about my attraction to this city and these types of scenes. I am still wrestling with the simple words that explain why.
Building widths, from left to right: 2.89m, 2.37m 2.41m, 3.04m (9’6″, 7’9″, 7’10”, 10′)
I think it’s interesting how colours are all from the same palette. They’re similar, but different.
Worth noting that texture and materials play a role, I think. Paint (not sure what sort it is) on plaster gives this sensational finish.
All good, but perhaps unrealstic to replicate in my city? Mainteance costs (plaster!) can be a killer.
