There is one street, and in that street one house, which would be just an ordinary house in a long line of houses, so typical for this part of the world, if it was not so distinctively different and
occupied the attention of all the people that passed by. It's fasade was so usual, so colorful, with ivy growing all around it and beautiful iron door made in a shape of little branches and leaves. This house was truly a surreal creation. Inside this house, behind beautiful iron bars lives one bird, beautiful and colorful as the house itself. And today is a beautiful sunny day. Sun is shining and the sky is blue and all that cliches. Bird in a a beautiful colorful cage, behind iron door looks at the sun and the blue skies and dreams of flying high. Than one hand opens the door. Birds little heart was bumping like crazy. The dream will become reality now, all wishes
will be for filled. Slowly, bird spread her wings and flew! Happiness, delight, freedom!
Her wings, not used to flying starts shivering. Panicking, at the end of her strength, bird came back to her cage. She realized that she is not born to live somewhere else. She will continue to dream looking at the skies, clouds and sun. But, she knows where she belongs now.
But, I wonder, what would happen if that hand that opened the door,
closed them for the bird?

Is this house in Greece ?
Absolutely beautiful now, cant imagine how gorgeous it was when people lived there. I like the stones and decorations on the walls very specially, as well as the grate on the door.

The colors are so vivid and cheerful. It looks like someone happy built it, someone with good energy.
You know something about the place ??

Smiles,
M.

This house is in Athens, 5 minutes away from my home.
It's a house with unique architecture and it's a shame that it is abandoned.
I know nothing about it, but I will try to find out :)

Oh, please do. It is very interesting and it has an
incredible charisma and good energy. It is stunning that
it was not recovered by someone...

Remember to let me know if you find out something!

It is such a pretty house, and strange that it should be abandoned for so long.

How and why did you go in there?
It looks like a beautiful place to live, why is it abandoned?
Reply

StamatisGR Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2008   Photographer
It's a five minutes drive from my house.
It's been abandoned since I remember myself.
I don't know why...
You can just open the door and walk inside.
Its architecture is so unique that I just had to go inside and take pictures.
It's right on a street with many blocks of flats around and quite a lot of traffic.

Have you ever tried to find out something about who lived there? Whom the house belongs to?
