Go ahead with abandoned houses. This is the second one and from the hills of Eyup, a nice and historical corner in İstanbul at the end of the famous Golden Horn.
Terkedilmiş ev'lere devam. Bu da Eyüp Sultan tepesinde ünlü Pierre Loti'den.
Kimbilir kimler yaşamış bu evde, kimler girip çıkmış bu kapıdan ya da kimler seyretmiş Haliç'in güzelliğini bu pencereden ?

At least this house provides many attractive colours! But I don´t think the owner will see this positive effect of this lack of maintenance. Still, a very good photo.

Strong colours. Sharp images. Bold theme is made bloder still ... The details of destruction and decay over the passage of time has been lodly expressed in these photographs. The peelig paint - the cracking plaster - breaking wood - rusting metal ... all so clear and lucid. Appreciate the composition.
Thanks for sharing.

Very sad and a little beautiful at the same time. Time and neglect creates some fine colours and patterns, but it's hard to tell if this was ever a really nice house.
I read the fine poem you sent me. Maybe we can talk about it in late September if we manage to meet.

wenn Eyup "a nice and historical corner" ist, besteht dann noch Hoffnung für dieses Haus? Das Foto ist sehr attraktiv (wenn man Verfall attraktiv finden kann), aber die Nachbarschaft empfindet es sicher als Grund, sich darüber zu ärgern.

A lovely image of this dilapidated house . I like the colors from the peeled paint . We will never know the reasons for this state. The details are well captured with sharpness and colors.

Hello Mesut! No home born old! But all born there many hopes and dreams of people! An image that gives something of the past and perhaps history!

this portrait of an almost ruined abandoned house is very well composed and cropped, leaving within the frame only the essential, which is more than enough to tell us or let us imagine its story. The textured surfaces make a fascinating composition of worn out colours and the light is most effective in enhancing the mood the image evokes. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Great to see you back again.
This is a very charming photo. You captured the decay of this abandoned house marvelously. There is a real sense of despair to it.
Thanks for sharing and have a great time

le sfumature date dalle mura scrostate, sono naturali ed interessanti, una piacevole composizione.
Un bel lavoro ed un ottimo risultato.

Merhaba Mesut Bey.
İstanbul'un güzelliklerinden harika bir kare.
Renkler çok canlı.

Les vieux murs sont toujours attirants et j'aime beaucoup cette prise de vue bien composée. Le vieux mur de pierres et la vieille peinture sont des plus intéressants. Excellente composition, bel éclairage et merveilleuses couleurs. J'aime beaucoup.
Cordiales salutations du Canada,

For some strange reasons, these decayed houses offer an irresistible attraction for photographers, like if they were screaming at us to be remembered. It would be interesting to see in what state is this house, 4 years and a half after you have photographed it.
The textures, the exposed stones, the rust, they are all the opened wounds of a dying building, the visible sign of life passing by and probably the visual testament that we are so captivated by.
The winter light and wet pavement adds a layer of nostalgia.

Ces maisons abandonnées sont un bon sujet photographique. Tu as réussi là une bonne photo, bien cadrée, exploitant bien ces matières ayant subi les assauts du temps.

Merhaba dear Mesut
What a mysterious and characteristic old house. The colours are saturated beautifully and bring out the textures of the old rotting wood and peeling paintwork so well. I like the tight framing and you have managed the light superbly.

You also can find an old run-down and abandoned houses. Good frame, nice colors and good sharpness.
Have a nice weekend

Boa noite Mesut
I really like photos of abandoned houses. maybe I remember a house of mine that I lived when I was a child.
I love the colors.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-09-01 6:27
Many generations had to live in this house, now almost in ruins. The colors add to the charm and interest of the old façade. Excellent quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day
macjake (57344) 2012-09-01 11:26
again, I love these old buildings old fallen down buildings, they have so much character and each have their own story to tell :)
so many textures, all the peeling paint or stucco.
francio64 (38318) 2012-09-01 12:07
bello il contrasto cromatico tra i vari colori dell'intonaco del vecchio muro.
Ottima cattura con luce ben gestita e ottimo sharp.
annjackman (20091) 2012-09-03 0:31
The deterioation has given a wonderful opportunity for you as a photographer to take an impressive image. There is a sense of history leaving me to wonder what the house looked like when it was first built. You have caught the colours of the peeling paint and crumbling stonework very well.
Kind Regards, Ann

A theme I really like! I like the facade and the details of the old facade - good textures and colours! Here, the door would probably be broken very soon!
