Not garish, just bright, filled with colour, and they are common in many Mediterranean towns.Remarkable collection!
how common are such garish walls?
But I like them all!
That's what garish is, LOL, (“obtrusively bright and showy”), when it’s the entire bloody wall!Not garish, just bright, filled with colour, and they are common in many Mediterranean towns.
I thought ‘garish’ was a bit brash a term. These colours suit the climate, culture and purpose, ie, to separate and distinguish one domicile from another. So, although they might be out of place in, say, upper LA, they certainly don’t go astray in, say, Riomaggiore or Burano.That's what garish is, LOL, (“obtrusively bright and showy”), when it’s the entire bloody wall!
I asked how common it was as I was trying to figure out where in Australia you might be finding these masses of bright strong unavoidable color!
Now it makes sense, Bro g that you refer to the Mediterranean!
I fear you would disapprove of my taste in clothing.It’s essentially intrusively unavoidable and unsubtle.
Mostly applied to clothes where someone doesn’t want to “fit in”!
in the Maghreb, bright Mediterranean blue is not abnormal.
i like it on your pictures as working with the shapes.
Excellent,I fear you would disapprove of my taste in clothing.
Shoes in red, blue, green, purple.
Shorts in florals.
Shirts in every colour possible, and black.
Some days people mistake me for a row of cottages in the Amalfi Coast.
Water, best coffee in town (Italian espresso), tea. Otherwise BYO.Excellent,
I know how to find you at the pub to get a beer! One for me and one for you which I’ll drink too!
Turning up at your house might be a disappointment as you might not stock any drinks
.....or unbolt the door!
That's for sure!Not garish, just bright, filled with colour, and they are common in many Mediterranean towns.

As you can see, Nic, the effect is less pleasing, for me at least. Perhaps I have the memory of the place in mind. I had a feed of chilled mussels and fettuccini with some very pleasant Grigio from Venice district quite nearby most of the shots. Along with the company of Christine and her aunt. Good company, good food, good chatter good location.
…For sure this beautiful series wouldn't work in B&W!
