# 80 - Everything so tidy!

Although it is in the same area of previous posts, these facades are stowed. But that is the reason that perhaps why, at least in my way of seeing, they lose much of its typical neighborhood character.

I love these old buildings. But, of the two of us, only you would know what has character or not in your beautiful city. Anyway, the photo is great.

Great shot.

Do you think you can elaborate more on the part where you mentioned they have lost much of its typical neighbourhood character? Sounds interesting :)

I love your street photographs. This is a beautiful shop - love all those iron balconies.

The building of the background have a beautiful architecture. Almost every window have its balcony. Great catch.

Well, they ARE missing the laundry, but it's still very charming any way you look at it.

Oh, to me those buildings have plenty of charm and character...

I guess it all depends on where you are coming from ;-)

I mentioned the character not in architectural terms but in visual terms, at least to me as a local. As mentioned in previous comments about the fact that the clothes being hung out and not to the back, I am trying to explain how I feel when I am in one place or another (unfortunately for me it is hard to make it in English). Is part of the typical neighborhoods to have the clothing hanging on the street ... isabella understands me.

Se fosse um quebra cabeças seria difícil de conseguir reunir todas as peças, mas como é uma fotografia tua é mesmo muito linda.

Eu cá por mim mandava as fotos para aqui à mesma. E vou meter uma cunha ao S. Pedro a ver se é desta que se cumpre a vã promessa da roupa vermelha se traduzir num biquini ou num fato de banho ... :))

E uma Santa Páscoa para ti do "Tintino" ... já me chamaram muita coisa, mas esta ainda ninguém a havia descoberto!

Thanks Alexander :)

Tarantino vou pensar nos teus desejos enquanto lá estiver...quem sabe! Talvez me torne numa coelha da pascoa!
Uma boa Páscoa e beijão.
