feet meandering
  come upon crumbling stucco
 kissed by ivy lips

I like how you've framed this image, Kitty.

Beautiful composition... I like this collection of old world textures and tones.

Collart Thierry said...

Thera are somme great shoots on your blog. Congratulations.

Jack said...

A fine image of a very appealing place, brattcat. Sure looks more like Europe than Brattleboro.

Sharon Creech said...

Lovingly captured. . .

Kate said...

Lovely haiku! Isn't it fun to fit information into that form? You are right about the European feel to the photo.

This is so much more charming than a modern suburban house that has a big, closed garage facing the street.

I love that some folk wherever they choose to live in the world, add that special touch to their homes. Wonderful find Brattcat.

Malyss said...

So true! you could have pictured that here! :o)

Rob Mandy said...

Oh that's nice!

Lowell said...

I would have thought you took that somewhere in France. Lovely place and beautifully done!

Clueless in Boston said...

It does look European.

Library Jewel said...

I love this haiku and the beautiful image!

James Wei said...

The number 24 does stand out for some reasons. Love the shot

Sharon said...

I love finding scenes like this that remind me of places visited or places still on the visit list.

Bob Crowe said...

European style? The sign looks Frank Lloyd Wright-ish. Well, yes, maybe Scotland, Charles Rennie Macintosh-ish. I haven't counted the syllables but your text is very close to a haiku. The mix works.

Bibi said...

Definitely Europe...love your haiku.

JM said...

Beautiful indeed! Lovely cropping.

Paula said...

It's always great to see a home with substance.

Tom Singleton said...

Wonderful mood, wonderfully rendered.

Lowell said...

Thank you, dear BC. Hope you're still having a grand ol' time "over there"!

Euro Vermont? I did a collection I called Euro Birmingham once. I like your little slice of Europe BC!

Far far too long since I visited. this is so charming.

Beautiful image, I like a lot the detail of the door!

Julie said...

I agree with Jilly: charming. And the detailed composition avoids us having to know that there is a garage door just out of frame right.

There is such contention over haiku: whether strict syllable counting is necessary; or, whether it is more necessary to have the third line with a 'message'.
