Photographer's Note

Nobody ever intended this as a work of art, but when I happened to see this small building in a backyard, and the faded plaster of the large wall behind it, I got an impression of carefully planned design with perfectly matching colours. It looked like a three-dimensional mural.

This is from somewhere in the centre of Riga, capital of Latvia. Riga is a quite big city, with a big city atmosphere, but here and there I saw small buildings, not much bigger than cottages, built long before the Sovjet period and now more than ready to be pulled down after decades of neglect.

Here is a larger version.

In a workshop you can see another peculiarly faded façade in central Riga.

This is the third and last part of this theme. With my next upload I will go back to more beautiful views. ;-)
