Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

In response to WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered.

I’m fascinated with the American fascination with historical architecture. Where I live, everything is by default ancient, or at least old and weathered. Even the perfectly insignificant and uninteresting small town where I’m currently residing dates back to the twelfth century.

It has all the obligatory medieval props: remains of the city wall, cobblestones everywhere and the plague column. The poor clueless people built it to ward off the plague, rather than building a proper sewer system. Duh.

  1. That’s a great photo Mara, I’d love to visit your town! May I suggest more photos of the town and it’s people? Interesting! ❤️

  2. For those of us who live in young countries seeing history going back for centuries is fascinating. And I do believe America has not got a good track record for keeping the old intact. I have witnessed their fascination for ‘old’ buildings here – and ours cannot compare or compete with Europe and other places.
