or slip through that slightly ajar door...which, of course, would be much easier.

Is there a mystery behind that door?

What a beautiful photo!

Wonderful capture as always, JM, and it is interesting that even buildings like this, in decay and yet still with a beauty of its own! Of course, gorgeous skies and trees do help! Have a great week!

Por aqui lugares assim geram ocupação por pessoas menos favorecidas socialmente.

This makes a lovely photo! I'd love to take a peek around that slightly ajar door.

I want to see inside. Bet behind that door there are lots of great stories to be told. It is always sad for me seeing the old pieces of architecture decaying. There is so much of that here in our part of the world. People just can no longer afford to take care of the structures. This capture is wonderful and captivating.

Oeiras should be declared a UNESCO world heritage site, if you ask me. These places should be preserved forever for everyone to see. Nostalgic shot!

I like this! The textures in the walls are interesting.

I especially like the angles of the roof line and the shadow on the door. The small peek allowed by the door shows that the inside, although abandoned by the last human residents, has been colonized by local plant life.

Once there was a garden and a vegetable patch behind that stark wall...

... and the flowers still grow. Nice contrasts of textures here.

Faded but lovely!

Decay can have its own beauty!

There is probably some wild green behind that door...

I love the way flowers know to grow wild and undisturbed in abandoned sites.

Jose' - I thought you might find it interesting that I just sent a book gift to Amir the Tehran Daily photo blogger with an Iranian client of mine who is going to Tehran next week!
