Tiles, Lagos (Portugal) – December 2010

One of the most distinctive architectural features in Portugal is the ceramic tiled facades that many of the buildings have.  These gorgeous Art Noveau style tiles were on a building in a pretty little square in the Algarve town of Lagos which we visited in December.  By the time you read this, Nick and I will be in Portugal for the third time in the space of seven months.  I think it’s fair to say we are smitten.

Happy Easter, everybody!  See you in in a few days.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister – previously featured  photographs can be viewed on the Saturday Snapshots archive pages.  Photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store, or even as gorgeous A3-size 2011 CookSister calendars for foodies, for London-lovers, Italophiles or beach lovers

If you want a custom calendar with your own selection of photos, starting in a month other than January, please e-mail me and we can discuss your requirements.  They make great gifts, for friends or for yourself :)

Don’t forget that this month I am hosting the Monthly Mingle, my darling sister Meeta’s monthly event.  The theme is Topless Tarts and you have until 30 April to get your entries to me!  Full details are available on my announcement post.
