    Hi Rajan,

    Yet another wonderful set of photos. My personal favorite is Janelas e Azulejos because of the symmetry and lack of power lines and wires, but Pensive is powerful and provocative, different from the rest. Well done.

    I have seen the first design carved into white marble forming a lattice divider for a room. The Taj Mahal has similar marble carvings. I can look at such designs for hours as when you change depth/focus – the picture changes entirely.ReplyCancel

      We have quite a few Azulejos in Goa, including the panels in the hallway of Institute Menezes Braganza in Panjim.ReplyCancel
