This house is located right in the center of the Tallinn Old Town. I guess it used to have some kind of plaster on the wooden body to look like a stone-house.

Looks like they haven't gotten around to restoring this old house yet. I like the construction detail you captured in the building. Your use of black and white contributes nicely to the forlorn mood of the photo. I've added this to my "Demolition By Neglect" theme.

Very nice...I love old houses and the history that they have. Asymmetric texture on the surface of the house is very nice. Great job..

The picture has its specific mood, I love it. Makes me think there's a long story behind it, lots of tragic lives and happy days. Gonna go and look for this house in the Old Town, I wonder how come I didn't notice it before...
