Fof years and years those two doors are standing side by side till the old building will be standing in place...Parallel "lifes" of lifeless objects...but with so strong character!
Spoted and photographed in Monastiraki are of old Athens. They belong to a building hosting a frames and mirors shop since more than 8 decades...

Nicely observed architectural detail. Maybe a tighter crop, losing the mess on the left, would have been an improvement here.

Framing, colors and sharpness again. I never thought
doors and walls could make such interesting shots.
Everytime you post one of those shots I'm amazed.

I like this shot George. Srong lines, colors and subject. Good idea to leave a bit of the sky in there, it almost matches the color of the doors.

Again, wonderful details and textures of this old building, especially the blue colour is fantastic. This time, however, I would have cropped the left side a bit, to avoid the cars and traffic-sign. But, as said, wonderful shot, George !

Nice shot George and a nice composition. Again a picture full of details, which by now is a trademark for many of your pictures. The colours are very nice and the blue-white combination reminds me of the greek national colours. Well captured!

When I see this type of blue I know that it's from Greece, and when I see interesting doors, I know that it's you. Wonderful shot, with so many details, George.

Ενδιαφέρον του αρχαίου ελληνικού χειρογράφου με τη σύγχρονα επικόλληση & το graffiti. Ζωηρόχρωμος, με την καλές τονικές σειρά & την οξύτητα. Καλή εργασία!

Resisting to time..)) Very well captured picture George. The doors and the folding panels are beautiful with the sign on top of them. The blue color, light and the shadows are look amazing. Very sharp and well contrasted picture. Thanks for sharing...

Excellent composition, George. I like that blue and the details of this old building. It is a paradox, but this old and ugly building turns beautiful for us...

Εξαιρετική φωτογραφία Γιώργο.Θέμα με αυθεντικότητα,
ζωηρά χρώματα,εικόνες που χάνονται σιγά σιγά...
Καλός σχεδιασμός του πλάνου.Τεχνικά και συνθετικά
άψογη.Μου άρεσε και ο τίτλος της...
