The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

ABC Wednesday - H

ABC Wedenesday - H for House

A somewhat dilapidated house in Sofia - in need of paint, plaster and removal of graffiti.

But who knows - inside it could be like a palace ....

Ah, never judge a house by it's outside -- kind of like books and people, huh? Great H for the day! Hope you're enjoying a wonderful week!

I like pictures of houses with character. They make a story all their own. "Look at me I've been lived in, and what a wonderful life I had."

Great post for H day.

No non nope ... remove the graffiti and then leave it just like that. It is downright gorgeous and I love it. Nothing wrong with a bit of decay and delapidation, I reckon.

A place that surely breathes history. Please have a good Wednesday.

Doesn't it make you wonder what the history of the house is?
I love the textures you captured.

Wouldn't it be fun to find out!

I found in some of my travels that the exteriors of European homes are completely opposite of the interiors! I also found their architecture to be fascinating. So different from Canadian homes. :D

The huge cola sign suggests it is/was a cafe hence a larger than usual wheelie bin outside - noticed the sign with the tow-truck ready to tow away illegally parked cars.

I think with all it's aging, it still has a veneer of beauty. Love the photo

Linda said...

It looks like a house with a history and plenty of stories.

It's interesting in the shape it's in but it could use some work. :)
