Good photo good title
John Prior: Thanks Vintage smile
Great detail. I want to follow that staircase, John.
John Prior: So did I, thanks Graeme
Stunning even if decaying, lovely detail smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, Italy abounds in texture and splender. Italians do like not to draw attention to themselves by having the smartest house in the street, so all exteriors tend to be neglected, keeps the taxman, gossip and jealousy at bay.
