:: Mango Tree :3:


The two houses were preserved, as well the mango tree in their yard, but a tall building lies behind. The house to the right belongs to the building and has some private use. On the other hand, the left one housed a restaurant, but now seems to be empty.

As duas casas foram preservadas, assim como a mangueira em seu quintal, mas um edifício alto está por trás. A casa à direita pertence ao prédio e tem algum uso particular. A da esquerda abrigava um restaurante, mas agora parece estar vazia.

  1. The houses you’ve photographed are so interesting to a person who’s lived only in California > Europe > New York! Especially the one you grew up in. Somehow so severely classical, yet – look at these colors! And mango trees, for heaven’s sake! (By the way, thanks also for the info on the sapucaia tree – I looked it up – spectacular flowers and fruit, too.) And, really, thanks for capturing your world day by day for us all.

    1. Residential architecture in the beginning of XXth century was still quite influenced by that in colonial era towns. Houses were built with no front gardens but long backyards for orchards. In this case, it may be that the owner of one of the houses had kept the lot with the tree for a future house for one of his children. (A quite common situation) As to the colors, in some periods they are more or less colorful. Nowadays, it is a way to magnify the perception on them.
