For Friday's theme, taken in Ixtapa Mexico in January.
Situated on a fault line, there was NO DAMAGE this week after the recent 7.6 earthquake that hit on Tuesday in the state of Guerrero. ALL IS WELL ...

Enjoy your day and weekend !

Hi Julie

Love the red trim in this white condo as it contrasts so well against the blue sky. Good sharpness & composition; & a nice entry in the architecture theme for Friday. The guy in the orange t-shirt with the lawnmower adds a refreshing change, to the usual tourist brochures. Nice that there was no damage after this week's quake. Tfs!

Boa tarde Julie,

Excellent shot with great POV, beautiful colors, perfect light, contrast and sharpness.
Great contribution to the friday's theme.

Hi Julie,
Beautiful white edifice with nice red borders of the balconies. Nice contrast with the blue sky and the green grounds. The man is giving scale to the perspective.
A very neat contribution to the theme.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Julie.

A very good addition to theme friday, the building has much attraction with the orange lines running through. You chosen a pleasing angle with the palm in one corner and the sky the other. The guy working the lawn mower brings life, very well seen and presented Linda, TFS. Have a happy weekend.

Stv :0))

Looks like the building is sturdy enough to withstand a strong earthquake. Nice capture of this beautiful building. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

I like the architecture of this wonderful building with amazing artwork on it, Julie!

Great focus and perfect isolation from the blue sky (in the BG).
The sharpness and POV is excellent, and the presence of the person gives nice sense of scale here.
Well done!

Bonsoir Julie,

This is a very different mexican architecture than mine. I bet 8 centuries make all the difference. Very nice work and contribution for the theme. Sharp details, slightly dark exposure render beautifull color saturation. Very good work and TFS


Ciao Julie, great perspective on relaxing architecture, lovely composition with man at work, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
