I love this. It would make a great print for your wall.
Ginnie Hart: You're kind, Michael. Thank you.

Crying out for insertion of some art pieces, like you showed a week or so past, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Then this is like the "before" to that "after," Ray! smile Thanks.

Both Ray and Michael are right, I wonder what they do with it, maybe nothings comes up.
Love the treatment.
Ginnie Hart: I always wonder if they had to get to the pipes or electrical wires and then plugged up the hole with stones. Not enough money left to do the stucco patch? smile Thanks, MLMA.
They are the wall that held the stucco on Ginniegrin... but they make a great picture....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you're right, Peter. smile Thanks.

I prefer the wall behind, Ginnie - but the whole thing makes a good and unusual picture, though
Ginnie Hart: I prefer the wall, too, Lisl! smile Thanks.
A really interesting image, Ginnie - I wonder if an inspector was looking for structure damage or something? Who knows - but I'm kind of glad they left it for you!
Ginnie Hart: Picking at the scabs, I think, Elizabeth, and never allowing them to heal! smile Thanks.

Absolutely fascinating Ginnie. Maybe they were commemorative plaques of some sort?
Ginnie Hart: I think someone went digging for the electrical wires or the plumbing pipes, plugged up the holes with stones and then ran out of money for the finishing stucco work. smile

Perhaps the one on the right was the start of a cat flap? Then the one on the left could be a window for the cat to look through? smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Now THAT'S an idea, Alan! grin
Don't know , but it makes for a good image.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mick.

The colour makes the shot
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Shooter. Thanks.

I imagine people make little notes and roll them up tight and hide them between the stones and bricks. And - I love the abstract nature...the textures here. Great eye!
Ginnie Hart: Makes sense to me, Marcie. Now I want to go back and inspect them more closely. smile Thank you.
Great shot, fantastic ideasmile Greetings
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Zielona.
Peephole show for Peeping Tom?
It's hard to start our Monday when you showed us picture like this... :p
Naughty G! x
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! As they say, a dirty mind is a joy forever! grin
Now that you mention it, I do wonder.
Ginnie Hart: See what I mean?! smile

I think the stones ARE the art. smile
Ginnie Hart: I think you're right, sister!

Large wall paper would be great
Ginnie Hart: A wall to remind me of Bratislava would be wonderful, Aussie. smile

Great contrasts, colors
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Helys.
Probably just as you imagine, Ginnie. We tend to make up more mysterious reasons when we see something like this but, usually, it is due to some practical problem. I, too, could see this image as a print.
Ginnie Hart: I'm quite sure you're right, Beverly. Something very practical! smile Thanks.
Oh you know how I love these types of captures!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Robin. I often think of you when I see and take them. smile
Haha. Someone get the polyfiller. Looks quite arty though doesn't it.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Janet. The things we could come up with, if allowed! smile

Fantastic, well spotted
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Anne.
Well seen, art indeed.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, John!
They make a nice abstract,Ginnie. See if you can find,Crooks,and nannies next. smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'll do my best, Frank. Thanks. smile

Curious and interesting.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Cherry. smile
Makes for a great image, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Martin. smile
Perhaps a couple of Banksy pictures have been cut out to sell on Ebay Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm sure you're right, Bill. smile
Intriguing indeed Ginnie! Fine capture.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard. Merci.
There must be a secret love-note tucked in there somewhere...but if you could find one, could you read it? Translating Blatslavanian is probably not in your repertoire of talents, many as they are!
Ginnie Hart: i love the thought of love notes tucked away in there, Patrushka. And wouldn't it be fun if we COULD read them! smile Thanks.

Nice bit of crumble ... not sure about the graffiti
Ginnie Hart: You what they say about graffiti, Richard...it just doesn't go away!
Superb Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sally.

dunno -- -- did anyone come up with the right answer?
Ginnie Hart: I don't think any of us here really know, Jennie! Too bad!

Joli coup d'œil ! Bonne journée

Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, JP. Merci.
Hidden history Ginnie. The truth is always behind a covering.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you're right, Pauline. I like that thought. Thanks.

Intrigue. Mystery. Texture. Color. All the elements of an interesting image. Nicely spotted, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Sue!

I suspect that this was an inspection to see the state of the wall behind the plaster Ginnie, but I could be wrong.
Ginnie Hart: One just never knows about these things, Chad, but I'm sure you're right! smile
