  1. Love the first photo - that would be a good beginning to a horror film. I would rather have flamenco dancers in our town square, so wonderfully colourful.The ceramic is a good shot and the movie theatre. you certainy live in an interesting place.

  2. Hi Belita!! Fabulous shots for this week's theme!! Great capture of the fisherman holding the twisty octopus!! Wonderful shot of the flamenco dancer. I really like how you've left her 'coloured' while the rest of the shot is B&W. Fascinating ceramic in the third shot, almost looks lie the shell of a fantastical sea-creature. Love the ornate features of the movie-theatre!!.

  3. Hi, Belita, what lovely pictures. I like the octopus picture, we Italians eat them as I am sure you know. The flamenco dancer is wonderful; she is so graceful and the technique of having her in color adds to the excitement of the picture. Beautiful ceramic, great colors and textures. The theatre is fascinating and once again so many colors and textures. Retratos maravilhosos!!

    1. Hi Benni! I agree with you... the top one is the best of the four pictures...
      Muito obrigado!
      Ps. I realy appreciate your words in Portuguese language, however, please, allow me to add something: 'retratos' means portraits and always applies to people, while in other cases, we would say 'fotos, fotografias, imagens'.

    1. Hi Heidi! I don't like octopus then it would never make me feel hungry. However, many Portuguese do love it.
