Around a corner, the surprise of a stunning, blue-tiled home in southern Portugal

An exquisitely blue tiled home found along a quiet, nondescript backstreet of the coastal town of Lagos, Portugal, during the off-season (October 2014). Whether this lovely old woman was the owner or not, I do not know. But she granted me permission, via a simple nod, to take a photo and kept smiling the whole time.
