The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.

Yesterday I made these photos, fascinated by the picturesque structure and the faded colors...
Today Our Beautiful World gives me the subject "bricks".


  1. Awesome post Mascha, thanks for sharing those wonderful shots with us at Our Beautiful World!

  2. Very beautiful photos of worn and old bricks..... if only they could speak! Thanks for sharing with Our Beautiful World

  3. Nice pictures! I especially love the composition of the first one: the contrast between the red and brown of the bricks and the green of the plants and trees is beautiful :-)

  4. Mascha,
    The 2nd and the 3rd are almost like animal skins - very pretty patches.
    Lovely find and snaps!
    Have a Great Week!
    Peace :)

  5. Jeder Stein anders, jeder ein Unikat und zusammen malen sie ein Gemälde mit vielen Facetten. Danke, dass Du den Blick darauf lenkst.
    Ich hab mich sehr über Deinen Kommentar gefreut, liebe Mascha.
    Lieben Gruß

  10. Hello Mascha
    These look like old limestone bricks and I love the whitening that happens over time as they weather!
    I'm visiting from Wendy's Simply Neutrals party.
    Have a happy weekend dear friend!
