That must have been an amazing doorway when it was maintained, it has such beautiful details.

I like old interesting doors.
And this has nice and pretty details.

The Blues and the Pinks are just striking even if the colors are decaying, the complimenting colors just give it a beautiful effect! Great Framing JM!

This is one of those places where the decay has added to the character of the place. I love that door.

Would imagine that home would have been fabulous in it's prime JM, the pink walls and blue door would have been stunning, it's actually still quite attractive in it's decaying state. Beautiful shot.

Esta casa já é bonita assim, imagina resturada.

joo said...

Even now it's so beautiful!

Gine said...

Pourtant, pousser la porte bleue a dû être agréable pendant des années ...

It is kind of a shame, JM, but it does make for a gorgeous photograph.

It may be ruined, but that door is wonderful!

Ahh, I painted it, inspired by your photo. What a pleasure to meet old friend! http://irinapictures.blogspot.com/2011/01/closed-door.html

Another fantastic capture in your Decay series! It's sad, but fascinating and I think it's terrific that you have photographed them. Thanks for sharing the, JM!

A wonderful image... neglected buildings have a beauty all of their own.

Halcyon said...

Beautiful decay!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

It is still beautful! Looks as if it would be worth saving maybe? (At my age I have a soft spot for anything aging ;>)

Julie said...

Drop dead gorgeous, Jose!

You truly have elevated 'decay' to an art form. This is gorgeous.

Dina said...

A great picture of a building that makes me want to grab my schpachtel knife and start scraping.

Arija said...

Decay yes but nothing that a little tender loving cace could not fix. Even so, it is still beautiful like an old person . . .

Dimple said...

It makes me sad that a house with such a beautiful door has become a ruin... :(

Joan Elizabeth said...

Now isn'r this a wonderful example of ruin.I love the pealing plaster, the blue/green doors and the fancy bits of ironwork. There is so much to love in this photo.

Francisca said...

Colourful decay!

Jacob said...

What a shame. Looks like it was, at one time, quite elegant.

Our travel group at Stone Creek has planned a trip to Portugal later this year. Unfortunately, we can't afford the price. But it would be fun. We'd even buy you a beer! :-)

Ruined... but with great colors!
