Casa de la Luna y el Sol


I saw this interesting house on Balboa Island in California. I'm posting these pictures today because they tie in with my subtle reflection photo for Weekend Reflections.

this building makes it seem sunny out regardless of the weather.
I love the sun and moon.

Thom said...

I dunno if I would like my house that color to tell you the truth. You know the old saying it sticks out like a sore thumb. The photo is great. Hmmm and it ties into your WR. In wonder if it could be the far window up by the sun? Great photo :)

Sunny said...

Wow! Nothing dull about those colors! I like the sun and moon.
Sunny :)

Olivier said...

belle maison, la lune a enfin rendez vous avec le soleil...

Bibi said...

In contrast to Thom, I like those colors...best on the outside, though, not for a living room/dining room. And the sun and moon are cool.

Jientje said...

Turquoise and blue, two of my favorites. Not the everyday colors to paint your house overhere though, it looks exotic!

Malyss said...

I like those blues! And I find funny the contrast with the grey buildings behind!

VP said...

Love the colors and the corner windows. A very strange house indeed. Now I'm curious about your next post...

Cezar and Léia said...

People there should be very happy, these colours are so beautiful, every detail in harmony!

I love it! The color is so happy, and the sun and moon are great. I had a similar set in FL, which I left behind because, well, no where to hang them here.

I see a pair of crosses as well. I felt like I should be finding more hidden objects in the picture!

hee hee -
As soon as he saw the image and before «Louis» scrolled down, he thought "This must be California."

This is a good find James, been to Balboa a lot of times but never noticed this beautiful casa.

Well spotted and captured.

A house to cheer anyone up on a bleak day. Can't wait to see your WR!

Lois said...

I like those colors on someone else's house, but not mine!

Diane AZ said...

That's one thing I miss about living in California, the creative house colors. I think the gray house next door would like nice in sunny yellow.

Oh, I love those blues! Very Caribbean in feel. Anxiously awaiting your reflections post .Kathy

Pam said...

James, this is a very colorful house that laughs on the outside.
Hmm, I wonder whats coming tomorrow? I can't wait to see it...

Leora said...

Love the composition you created with the sun, moon, bit of flower and all that rich blue. Lovely, painterly photo.

Jan said...

Love Balboa Island. Lots of artsy stuff going on.

Tash said...

Nice to see a bit of the island. Haven't been there in...20+ years. The colors are really striking.

RuneE said...

It reminds me of a garage-door, so one might wonder what kind of car the drive - solar-powered?

Rajesh said...

Indeed interesting. Both Sun and moon together.

Crafty Green Poet said...

I like the vibrant colours, though wouldn't work in all locations!

Both photos are excellent...

Regina said...

Nice design of sun and moon. Such a cool painting!

Mama Zen said...

I love that first shot!

Hilda said...

What a colorful, cheerful house! I've always loved sun and moon ornaments. But so many crosses.

A small house looks big like universe.

The space may really do such colors.
The master of here is profound?

maryt/theteach said...

I love colorful houses like this one James. Now I see the connection to your WR post! Well done! :)

Cheryl said...

Love the colors of the home!! And of course the decorations adorning it.

magiceye said...

amazing find and capture!

chrome3d said...

This is excellent. People could have more decorations on the walls of their houses. They would have more of a identity.

Ann said...

Once, I made a set of bed sheets with the sun and moon for my daughter, and she loved it. Then I found a giant cushion of the same pattern.

What is this art called?

Sun and moon depicts the 'continuity' in Sri Lanka! - i.e. nothing will happen to this place till the sun and moon is up there :)
