j'aime bien cette vieille fenetre, on peut imaginer toutes les histoires qu'elles pourraient nous raconter

Tinsie said...

Old and decayed structures usually make beautiful photos :-)

Great great great,

love the tones, I'm always fascinated by decayed facades and their unique stratification signs.

Sharon said...

Decay like this can be great fodder for the artist.

This wall and window frame is screaming, "paint me, please."

Thank you for your birthday wishes yesterday.

Jarart said...

I love all the pastel color in this one. It looks like a painting.

Halcyon said...

Such beautiful colors. Decay can produce something nice, I guess!

Kaori said...

This is a great wall, has so much character! I wonder if the window actually opens...really great photo :D

Kate said...

Isn't it interesting how "decay" can make such interesting photos?

Lois said...

Very artistic shot JM!

Jacob said...

A rather striking photo, with several layers of decay, I'd guess, and lots of color in those layers!

Re your post on the shark teeth: Chilean desert? That's quite amazing. A few years ago, Lois and I spent time on the beach in Venice, Florida, and we found enough shark teeth (many ancient) to fill a big jar! Wish I knew what happened to that jar!

VP said...

Some kind of picturesque decay. I like the stones framing both the windows.

NYC In Photographs said...

This is a lovely shot! I love the textures.

It's a really sad view, but at the same time it has a cerain charm.

Faded glory.

Per Stromsjo said...

So, the question remains. When is decay chic ?

Acho que já tudo foi dito pelos teus amigos.
Amo as casas antigas, aqui há uma junto à linha, quem vai para a Parede, ardeu recentemente, mas que tem ainda uma beleza triste e podemos imaginar como ela foi em tempos, cheia de movimento e risos de crianças.
Temo que em vez de a recuperarem façam ali um conjunto de apartamentos...é triste, mas é a vida

Laurent said...

Very artistic photo JM. I love it

Small City Scenes said...

Decay is so sad.
I think it starts in the teeth. LOL MB

Francisca said...

It's a beautiful shot, JM. Yet I can't help think that the people who live behind that charming window would just as soon have a nice clean modern home!

Dean Grey said...

JM!

You call it decay, I call it character!
