Decorated door

Be it ever so humble, it is still worth a personal touch. This abandoned shell has a padlock on the door, so I can't be sure, but looking through the gaps at the top of the door, I think you can see sky. So there might not be a roof back there. The prior resident hung the decorative broom on the beat-up door.

Sightly ghostlike atmosphere, but very suitable to this theme.

Always beautiful textures and colors too, they change depending on where the house was taken and here it looks like there is a little humidity

I love the decoration on this door, which gives access to nothing.

Beautiful green tones! Horizontals, verticals, diagonals ... it's all there. The decoration spices up this wonderful facade!

Makes one wonder about the family that lived there. It also makes me feel sad. I like the muted colors.
