Painted Dishes

Satellite dishes, that is.

I saw these funky painted dishes on an apartment building in an "ethnic" part of Amsterdam. What a marvelously creative way to color your world.

I have often wondered why no-one ever thought to decorate these ugly grey dishes with pretty 'skins' or painting.

They're certainly prettier. I have no idea how they work — I always assumed they were grey because it was the best color for capturing satellite images, but I guess maybe not.

Lol, I bet they make you smile especially on a dreary day!

The logs cabins are hidden in groves in the palace grounds, I imagine they tried to make them as unobtrusive as possible...
