I know it will not be everybodys taste, cause there is no action, no human being, no landscape or animal. Just an odd old house with the signs of the time ... and we don't know about the story of this place. For some reasons I like these rotten places and I like to take pics of them.

Hi Nino,

Nice architechtural details, I like the sharp edges but your POV I feel while gives an interesting view of the place, focuses on a non-descript peeling wall..with an equally dreary window with no atmosphere..it takes all the attention away from the main subject...maybe if u had walked a couple of steps to ur left it might have helped..
Thanks for noticing the beauty among the dreariness..

Hi Nino,
As you told in your note, this place has not much to offer to the beholder, but somehow this makes the point.
At first i am attracted by the red tones, then the greenery flourishing out of old stone. Even the blue coming from the rope is something :)
The desolate atmosphere adds to the mood and i am really impressed by the architectural details that you represent. Interesting crop from a daily view. I would like to read some words about the B&W textile that is wrapped on the top of the well (?) you presented below.

Hi Nino,
The red and black tones here really work well and I like your tasteful croping. There is something tactile about the scene, as one yearns to touch the facade. The rather ornate exterior speaks to better times of perhaps glory and prosperity, now a distant memory. The lighting is superb. Well captured.

I can understand you like that. Just a common view during a common moment from the trip. But that's the point ! That's the pleasure of being away, in another world, seeing other of building the daily life and enjoying it...
But not everybody's taste, you foresee right.

Hi Nino
The ornate sculptures on the right & bottom structures not only frames the old wall well, but also serves as a good strong contrast. Light is good and your good crop makes this picture.
