Another arresting and lovely photo where one does not expect to find an interesting image!

It is just so sad to see this kind of thing. And Sintra must be like Florida...if you leave any kind of structure unattended for long the jungle takes over!

I can imagine what a beauty this was "before"!

Oh my this is quite eerie and yet one can see the beauty. MB

I love the blue wall in front! She must have been a real beauty in her prime!

Sharon said...

Such a grand building to be sitting there in ruin!

Steffe said...

Beautiful decay.

It's marvellous - even abounded remains beautiful!

Looks like the wood already knows that it won.

I love the frame of trees front and back and the green moss on the building. All makes for a lovely mood in this photo.

OH MY! It's difficult to understand why anyone would allow this to decay.

Nice framing, I like the darkened foreground.
I thought of you and your decay series on my last photo, so funny you should mention that! :)

Beautiful!

A sad view of what once was a wonderful place.

I like the colour palette here. Seems to match the theme of decay.

James said...

Very nice and I like the lighting!

Randy said...

I'll take it. It's probably better preserved that the wood building I posted yesterday for Astoria.
