It looks like there was once a larger (full-sized?) door in this spot? Interesting thing to stumble upon!

Olivier said...

petite porte dérobée, j'adore et j'aimerais bien voir derrière

Kate said...

Looks a little decadent with the graffiti and fallen bricks and stones.

there's something of E.A.Poe in this.

Cathy Hudspeth said...

As much as I love the graffiti, the cobblestones in the foreground pull my eye. How do these guys do this art with spray cans???

Francisca said...

Looks like an inside job to me, José! LOL!

Lowell said...

Oh ugh! I hope that was an attempted robbery, because if this is called "art," I'm going to have redefine the word! :-)

Great find, whatever.

Susan said...

Wonderful colours. That piece on the left is a great identifier for the artist.

Sharon said...

Hmmm...it does look like someone was trying to get inside.

VP said...

Funny image and even funnier title!

Kay said...

Quite an interesting scene!

Halcyon said...

Interesting scene. Guess we'll never know the truth!

Gunn said...

I had to take a look at the face!:)

Muito bem observado JM, um abraço

Interesting that some of the writing is in semi-English and some is in Arabic. Did people literally smash through that outer wall?

Randy said...

Wow the color of the door really pops.

Wonderful shot. That door is gorgeous.

Eu acho que tudo isso é reflexo dessa crise ecoomica!

Nice shot. Looks like there is a hidden story there...

it took me awhile, but was that a real or reel door in the middle?

JM said...

@Arabesque: It's a real door with locks and all. Weird, isn't it?
