Someone better get busy with this repair. What a beauty!

It's still quite beautiful. Too bad someone didn't take better care.

I have a thing for windows, you have a thing for decay - I wonder what that says about us! :) A beauty of a photo.

Sharon said...

It almost looks as if the decay is headed downward. Such a beautiful place to be in such disrepair.

Lois said...

Yes it is still quite lovely! I like the way you framed it with the tree.

What a beautiful place. I can't believe someone would just let it go. I love the way you photographed it with the tree. Almost like life and death.

I really appreciate your decay images, JM. This is another beauty.

I suppose nobody lives there.

There is an oriental upswing at the eves of this building. Fascinating.

AB said...

They way the roof ends curl up makes the building look rather Chinese

A great photo but it's so disappointing! She was a beauty, a gem in her early days! I wish a millionaire would fix her up!

VP said...

This is always sad, but even more in this case!

I hope someone "with money" spend money on this beautiful old villa.
I like the way you have composed this image!
