Dilapidated door and wall in the City of Tomar in Portugal

For those who have seen the paintings of Antonio Tapies, a contemporary Spanish artist from Barcelona, and read about him, know that some of his paintings were inspired on mundane and rugged things on walls, doors, alleys and pathways. Though this is somewhat different, I also find crumbling, defaced and decrepit walls and doors, very artistic. I know that the delapidated doors and walls on these photos in Tomar, weren’t produced on purpose. In fact they were the result of neglect but they are artistic nevertheless, and that’s why I took the time to take a few shots of this places. In this case this is a door and a wall located at Travessa da Cascalheira in the City of Tomar in Portugal.
