A house that was built many decades ago when the whole coastal town of Lakki was designed and constructed from scratch by the Italian architects who had undertaken the task to create a model town for their officers and services. The Italian regime in the Dodecanese started in 1912 and a few years later, the immense swamp that was Lakki then was solidified and built according to the architectural principles of Italian Rationalism.
This is one of the houses built for the officers' families. The first floor looks abandoned and the ground floor inhabited. The house next door is renovated and looks cozy and new. They stand on the right side of the road leading from Lakki to the east, to Ayia Marina.
Thank you for visiting

Nice palmtrees but old house, well framed, interesting view behind the seafront ..., good light and sharpness.

I like the pyramidal symmetry of your shot with the divergent streets leading off in either direction. Lovely sharp image. Thanks for the informative note

όμορφη παρουσίαση του παλιού αυτού γωνιακού αρχοντόσπιτου για τα δεδομένα του νησιού με την εγκατάληψη να είανι εμφανής σε όλο του του το μεγαλείο.Οι φοίνικες δημιουργούν μιά ενδιαφέρουσα αισθητική με το λαμπρό φως του ημέρας να τονίζει τις λεπτομέριες και την αισθητική του όλου χώρου.

Hello my friend Ourania
those palm trees covering this old
construction are almost perfect
they try to touch the blue sky
there is a great symmetry in
the placement of the palm trees

The lovely trees are a nice attraction point on these picture, also in Belgium his the wires sometimes disturbing, but the not the mistake of the photographer.
Also a wonderful panorama view about these area.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

De très beaux palmiers qui prennent toute la vedette dans cette image. Ils projettent aussi une très belle ombre pour les riverains. Par contre, le trottoir a besoin d'un petit peu d'amour.

Hello Ourania ,
That is obvious that this house would deserve to be renovated . The palm trees are superb . Excellent angle of view and framing .

I like the triangular shape of the composition with the apex top centre. Good sharpness and density levels with punchy light contrasts. The repetition of the palm trees adds perspective and dynamism die to the diagonal axis. Have a fantastic weekend!

This looks quite different from most views from Leros. Along with the palm trees this kind of building looks like something I expect could be found in Libya or Eritrea, other places that have been run by Italians. This house doesn't seem to be in the best shape. I could say it has seen better days, but I suppose nobody on Leros would think of to foreign occupation as "better days". Your photo is an immaculate composition with very good colours, and the palm create a fine diagonal.

Excellent framing for this composition with the palm trees, the foreground and the houses forming a fine pyramid. the exposure is perfectly managed which has resulted in excellent details and clarity. the colour contrast with the blue sky is very attractive.
thanks for sharing and have a great day.

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
κρίμα που το όμορφο αυτό σπίτι είναι τόσο παραμελημένο,θα φαινόταν πολύ πιο εντυπωσιακό εαν ήταν κάπως πιο φροντισμένο,
πάντως αυτού του στυλ η αρχιτεκτονική είναι πολύ ωραία,
πολύ ωραία είναι επίσης και η παρουσίαση του μέσω της φωτογραφίας σου,

il Mediterraneo è un immenso "lago" su cui si affacciano molti popoli che, nell'arco dei secoli, si sono scambiati arti e mestieri, influenzandosi a vicenda, mescolando culture e tradizioni, tutto questo è servito per arrivare allo stato attuale.
Sicuramente il processo non è terminato, anzi, si è ampliato, grazie alla tecnologia, oggi, ci influenziamo in ogni angolo della terra.
In effetti questa cosa sembra ben suddivisa tra la parte abbandonata e quella ancora in uso, vegetazione compresa.
Ottima condivisione, molto interessante, soprttutto da...italiano :)

Dobar tekst o mestu i kuci sa opisom ...
Lep pogled na drvece io staru kucu ...
Dobar snimak, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazano mesto sa kucom, lepe boje.

Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.
A good article about the place and the house with a description ...

Good shot, sharpness and contras, nice place shown with the house, beautiful colors.

Intéressante vue sur cette ancienne villa partiellement cachée par les palmiers
Bonne luminosité ambiante
Très bonne journée

Those three(or maybe 4) palm trees make the scene worth taking by camera, Ourania.
Rise diagonally from right to the center on the image, with a fine upwards view from the intersection.
Nicely spotted, well done on technical's.

Intéressante note sur cette habitation bordée d'un côté par d'immense palmiers, bon POV et couleurs naturel
abmdsudi (57168) 2014-04-11 6:54
A good record shot of the day well composed with the main interest opens up many interpretations. The simplicity & the minimal colour palette make a well spotted and effective snap. Well done, Congrats

Hi Ourania Dear Friend
Very nice view of the street with tall palms being exhibited. Very well. I love it. Thanks for sharing.

I like photos of abandoned houses. Interestingly enough, this building is only half abandoned. I hope someone buys the upper flat and renovates it soon.
