The pillar is truly amazing.

The pillar is my favourite too! It's nice but I'm sorry one of my countryman lived his letters on the walls in your town. He would better write her a mail or an SMS, as they do these days.

@ Traveling Hawk - He's following a local tradition: we got thousands of these and that wall hasn't much to loose anyway...

VP said...

@ joo - The sign was made by the owner's father, a refinery worker for many years. The guy suggested the name and his daughter liked it.

I think it's interesting how many photo opportunities can be found on a walk. These are the kinds of photos that tell what a city REALLY looks like.

The lion head and fish are great. I love to look at the architectural details and things like these embellishments.
