Great color, texture and composition as always, Katta. And to think that most any place else, painting your house or apartment one of these colors would make the neighbors absolutely cringe LOL

Beautiful composition, colors, lines and textures. Love the way the blue window was left ajar and the next-door neighbors closed theirs; they might have gone on vacation because they also took the plant pot inside. Beautiful story-telling photograph, Katta.
Congratulations on the very well-deserved POTD!!!
