I noticed several of these old houses built next to the walls have fallen apart. The walls themselves are crumbling in places.

Wind, rain, sun and time are the forces which tend to undermine the man-made.

The crumbling seems to be quite...clean! Almost controlled! There's a beer can left open on the wall...probably for the spirits?

again, great textures thanks to these old stones ...
amazing that they would let any house fall down given the lack of space !!!

Excellent shot. Crumbling walls-some bricks can collapse at any moment. Guessingly, a lot of houses are built wall to wall around there. Well seen. Have a nice day. :)
