The villa looks like it has all kinds of possibities for rehab. The doves are a decent display of graffiti, which I usually dismiss out-of-hand, but this one is attractive.

That graffiti shows some talent and the villa looks like it could shine once again with some loving care.

What a shame that beautiful villa has been abandoned. I hate graffiti, but have to admit this is pretty good work!

Nice photo, JM!

Nancy said...

I'd love to to get my hands on this place. We are having more and more graffiti around here.

All sorts of decay at the same spot then.

I never figured out why houses in a city can stay abandoned. Whoever owns the ground would want to make good use of it, methinks.

Virginia said...

at least it appears to be part of the structure.

When I saw your image minutely, I found that you did a good job by putting the word peace.

l'envol de l'oiseau est magnifique. Je savais pas que Bèvinda n'était pas connu au Portugal (la salle du concert était remplie), en France elle est connu pour les reprises des chansons de Gainsbourg dans son style si particulier. J'aime beaucoup ce qu'elle fait.
the takeoff of the bird is splendid.
I knew not that Bèvinda was not known in Portugal (the concert was filled), in France it is known for the resumptions of the songs of Gainsbourg in its so particular style. I like very much what she makes.

I love the way your eye caught the quiet pride of this building, how it keeps its chin up no matter what happens to it.

"Peace is to seek serenity in the people to live with joy the good times, have power and good ideas to face problems and
resolve difficulties.
Above all, peace is create an atmosphere of harmony
and welfare of family and community.
Always remember that where there is love, there is
peace!"
Beautiful graffiti!

Léia :-)

Llike really nice graffiti.... but on the wrong place!

Joan Elizabeth said...

I lovely juxtaposition of old and new. Here's hoping other graffiti artists leave it alone and it doesn't get scribbled on.

I wonder what could possibly be so wrong with such a beautiful building that it is left to deteriorate. If only I had a few million dollars...
