Old world charm

You’ll have to agree or maybe not – but there is an undeniable mystic aura that surrounds ancient relics, monuments and ruins. A rustic and romantic whiff of air that subtly envelopes and adorns. Remnants from beyond. Vintage Art.

It whispers of a time that was… of a time that never will be… it is all that is left behind for us to remember…

The crumbled down walls that once stood tall from an era of bygone glory – they sing an old song, they have stories to tell, they have secrets to keep.

Nobody knows their stories, songs or secrets – it could be of battles lost, or triumphant victories, or maybe rumors of forbidden love, heart-rending betrayals or of hidden treasures lost and found, or perhaps the wisdom of the ages.. nobody knows, no one ever will…

It whispers of a time that was… of a time that never will be… it is all that is left behind for us to remember…

Their saga unknown, unsung and untold, these historical vestiges stand their ground against the horizon as a bold reflection of a majestic past, a sublime history, a rich heritage that is not meant to be forgotten but is almost…

Old world charm. An epitome of glory. A hint of poetry. I am hopelessly transported into a rustic world that words can’t describe… but I tried.

Anyone else feels the same way when you visit ancient landmarks or see picturesque images of ruins?

    Yes, they do have a certain charm, even a hint of spook maybe. Your words really conjured up the right images and I imagined the fairy tale castles or our own historic forts.

      Yep.. i like that… a hint of spook. Most ancient palaces and forts does come with some kind of spooky tales associated with it. Thank you for your kind words! 🙂

    Absolutely. Fascinating to walk thru ancient places wondering about how people might have lived many hundred years ago. And how and why they built what they did.
