wrapped

One of the abandoned houses in the center of Sofia. Good for the advertising, but very bad for the city! The corner "Dondukov" blvd and "Benkovski" street.

Seems that the advertisers took the chance to place their advertisement banner in the whole houses, maybe just to cover the old abandoned houses or maybe they just assuring that everyone in the city will see their advertisement.. lol.

anyway i been following you for a while and i hope you have time to see my work too..
thank you in advance

That is kind of sad from what I can see of the house it must have been pretty nice once upon a time.

LouDuk said...

That actually seems like a really good idea.

What a shame, looks like a Victorian structure needing love and refurbishment. Thank you for sharing.

a shame really, it's such a beautiful house - well, it would be.

Hi,

Indeed it seems that sometimes there's more interest on having outdoors than recovering the buildings, many of them historical ones or references of a city's architecture.

Best regards,

José

Wow. That house, at least the little bit you can see of it, looks really bad. You'd think they'd just tear it down instead of masking it. But, I guess it is a good way to advertise. *shrug* Great picture, though!

Gabri said...

Oh, God! What a gorgeous house! It has such potential. It makes me sad that I can't fix it up. I hope someone will.
It must have looked amazing when it was in it's prime.

I like billboards to bits and compulsivly shot them. This is a Great image for sure, I feel you managed to convey the sadness behind the huge glossy ad. Cheerstony, Great work!

I hate seeing things like this. I wish they would just ante up some funds and take care of the buildings. They're so beautiful! Don't let them go to waste!

I love drawing houses. This would have been a great one to pen and ink. Sad that such a wonderful place is abandoned. TerpCreek.com

i think its better than worst. but instead of using this material, may be they should consider building a billboard? :)

So sad to see what I'm sure was a very grand house go to ruin...much like many of the grand houses in the inner cities of the US...It looks like it would have been quite magnificent if it had been kept up...
