Lightening crack

This old brick building has obviously had some work. I am glad it is being preserved, but this cement or mortar or grout gives the impression of a lightening bolt down the side of the wall.

@Olivier P: I have visited your site and appreciated the walker ignoring the vendor. I would have left a comment if I could have figured out how.

Superb image and very special ! It looks like a magic rope to escape or to enter a spark of happiness through the window any case it is superb!

It certainly does look like a lightening streak. Wonder why they didn't try to use a colour of caulking that blended in more.

Une compo bien équilibrée et j'aime beaucoup cette fissure qui tel un fil d'Ariane est le lien qui nous fait garder les pieds sur terre !
Bonne journée Harry

Makes you wonder what it was. I also like the star up by the window.
