Seriously, how do you make decay look so good? ;)
Nice colors in this one. I like the arch too.

I agree with all above, it's very 'charming' decay JM, the mellow yellow saves it from looking too dreary.

This is a Beautiful Depiction of the Word Decay! The Stone Streets, the Golden Walls, Perfect!

These walls and the path look like they have been there for a very, very long time.

Terrific shot as always, JM. I love the colors and the worn cobblestones. Wish the walls could talk and I could listen to the stories I'm sure they could tell. Enjoy your evening!

Not too bad for a decay, a bit of painting and it will look like new...

I like to find places like this -- makes me want to know the whole story....who used to live here, what happened etc......

Randy said...

The combo of the decay and the color mixes so well.

Your decay is always so beautiful. That must say something about a place where even the dead spots are appealing :)

Ooops I nearly missed this. I love yellow decay for some reason.

. . . and yet, there is often greater charm in the old and imperfect than the new that has no hope of enduring the test of time. What is a little peeling stucco or paint, like the lines on an honest old faces, it adds grace and charm.

Even though this is neglected and decayed, it is beautiful!
