Euro Cash – the way it seems to be going.

Cool shot, really like this old structure. Nice job on the composition and excellent details and textures. Agree about the Euro Cash John and the image would even be better without it.
John Prior: Thanks John, I thought I'd make a political comment, any other bag would have been moved smile

What a fantastic structure. Love the sprig of green and the hole in the wall. (I would have had to have removed the bagsmile
John Prior: Thanks Sherri
I do love doors! the wood, and the stone in this add such great texture and color. I like the little mouse hole over to the left?
John Prior: A big mouse Elizabeth smile

A bag of Euros is left mysteriously outside the door of the man who has a big black car and lots of swarthy friends
John Prior: Nice angle Chris, no doubt owns the hotel and is mayor also, but loves tourists, I was told that anything stolen from a tourist would be returned in under 24 hours smile

Look at how palpable this is, John! So much texture; so much to see and touch....
John Prior: Thanks Ginnie, these places abound in textures.
Gorgeous! And a nice twist with the shoppingbag disturbing the ancient feel
John Prior: Thanks Marion, I thought it made a political point smile
I love the natural colors of the door and wall best
John Prior: Thanks Chantal

ha ha is that all there is left in the bag.
John Prior: Could be the next donation from the IMF smile
Wonderful wall and doors, but I too would have been tempted to move the bag, which of course would completely change the meaning of the picture.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, I would have done so if it had not said 'Euro Cash' which seemed to sum up a lot of decaying economies.

I love this photo. I can feel the age of the place, and the little sprig of green is great, and the little mouse hole (I love mice).
No idea what EuroCash though.
John Prior: Thanks Debb for all the comments. I thought the Euro Cash bag in crumbling surroundings made a nice statement about the economic situation in several Euro currency countries including Italysmile
