A really fine tonal and textural study.
I wonder if you have considered b&w?

Needs a bit of TLC outside, Ann, but if it's anything like the run down houses here in Crete, the inside is like a palace Smile Well spotted and captured. Carol

it to make it look good.
I can see exactly why you liked this Ann.

What a find....surely you could not have overlooked this excellent image, Ann: what a wonderful study of the colours, textures and detail in this dilapidated frontage.
If this were at home we'd regard it as a slum, but when on holiday abroad in far off places it takes on a different meaning, all part of the local charm, no matter what the locals might think.
Hope you have more delights to find up your digital sleeve.

Dilapidation and disrepair in bucket loads Ann, even I could do something to help this facade, I wonder if the inside was OK di you manage to see inside at all?

Maybe it's a defence against those who have less and not keeping up with the Jones?

I like the simple colours and all that wonderful detail. How lucky we are and still we moan about not having this or that.

No, we didn't get to go inside Dougie, so I'm not at all sure whether anybody lived here. We are lucky - the gap between the West and these under-developed countries is just widening.
