Très jolie couleur ocre.
Ginnie Hart: It really caught my eye, Martine, the color and the age!

Fabulous Wabi-Sabi. It is amazing what heat, salt and wind can do over time to limestone...
Ginnie Hart: Except for the photo op it was, MLMA, it did make me wonder how long some of these structures will last like that??!!

Crikey! Incredible effect that the weathering has had over the centuries. That stone over the no. 81 looks very precarious; another 200 years or so and it may collapse wink
Ginnie Hart: The photo ops were incredible everywhere we went, Alan, but we did wonder how long these structures can stand without some tender, loving care??!

It looks as if that door has never had a coat of paint, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It amazed us everywhere we went, Lisl, at how much care was needed. It would be a full-time job for people needing jobs?!?!

A very characterful wall, Ginnie...well found, and played with.
Ginnie Hart: Not much playing with this one, Ray, because what you see is basically what you get. It amazed me!

Belles teintes
JP
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, JP.
The colours are very pleasing Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: WYSIWYG, Chad. It was quite amazing.

It is in a condition those wishing to sell it might call "distressed."
Ginnie Hart: And sadly, Chris, we saw a LOT of it in Malta. sad
The building has matured gracefully, that is one way of looking at it!
Ginnie Hart: "Gracefully" is a good word...hopefully for a lot of us these days, Martin? smile
Amazing to see the effect of wind erosion (and salt and heat)so clearly.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Mary. We saw it everywhere in Malta!
That door!!! Thanks for sharing the wabi-sabiness of Malta!
Ginnie Hart: I always think of YOU, Robin, whenever I see wabi-sabi things, everywhere we go! smile
I like to photograph doors also.... cool, love it!!
Ginnie Hart: They often have so much character, Rob. Thanks.
this building kind of scares me Ginnie!! but then again, i spook easily lol lovely shot
Ginnie Hart: HA! Not one I would want to enter at the drop of a hat, Elaine! smile
gorgeous textures, Ginnie. i am tempted to run my hands over the wall. i see there is an entry for the four legged friends?
Ginnie Hart: LOL at the doggie door, Ayush. Good eye. smile
Still bearing the scars of WW2 perhaps
Ginnie Hart: It does look like it, Bill, doesn't it! I never even thought of that, thinking it had more to do with how the weather there wreaks havoc on everything.
It's rather refreshing to me. wink
Maybe it's because we rarely use # sign in Britain & Malaysia. It's always "No". Like No 81.
Ginnie Hart: It's intriguing, LC, isn't it, especially since Malta had 150 years of British rule and influence!

This is great. One aspect that I like is the electric conduits that was added in later, in the life of the building.
Ginnie Hart: An architectural student could have a heyday in Malta, Louis! smile Thanks.

Lovely old stonework and woodwork. Let's just leave it as it is smile
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Cherry. Just leave it exactly like it is!
#81 is a very beautiful place Ginnie...
drop in today if you can... it is Penny's birthday....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for the heads-up about Penny's birthday, Peter. Sorry I missed it yesterday!
I was trying to think of a good knock knock joke but failed.
Very nice shot.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Good one, Michael. The thought alone brings a smile. smile
Lovely shot! Imagine the history and rich stories the building holds!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly what I thought, Charles! Thanks.
