Six Word Saturday : A bit the worse for wear

Seen from a cablecar in Porto …Some dilapidation in the riverside streets



  1. I hope that nobody is still living in the house with nor roof!
    Well-spotted, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Many worse than that where I’ve just come from, Sue. 🙂 🙂 And, yes- I’ll get to sharing some day… Happy Saturday!

  3. In Lisbon we passed similar ‘ruins’ …sadly some folk still lived in the shells, home till the bulldozers arrive.

      Goodness, sounds like Cuba… Apologies for the late reply, I have an eye problem, and have been and still will be fairly absent from blogging for a while

  4. Not a place I would live in…or enter for that matter…But really your cup of tea! And mine…;-D

  5. Looks like fire damage. A lot of work needed to bring that back to a habitable state. The house on the right looks good. I wouldn’t want to live next door to the dilapidated one though.

  6. Nice catch, Sue! Happy Saturday.


  7. that’s really beautiful Sue, regards Mitza

  8. The one without a roof looks almost as if there’s been a fire.

  9. I like the composition, colors and textures in your image, Sue. Well done.

      For,or is the word, Madhu! Apologies for the late reply, I have an eye problem, and have been and still will be fairly absent from blogging for a while

  10. Looks like there has been a fire there. Graphically it has its own beauty, but of course also entails sadness and loss.

  11. Terrific catch Sue—really want to visit Portugal soon. Hope the eye situation is improving. Thinking of you
