Something that is about to disappear soon


Some Colonial old houses (casonas coloniales) from San Martin Street are about to disappear soon, people need money to rebuild but sometimes they prefer to sell them for a great prize, then, they are new houses but with a new and a diferent style.

Así es amiga, nuestro patrimonio cultural e histórico nunca ha estado en la lista de prioridades de las autoridades apristas en los últimos 50 años. En cambio la mediocridad gobierna sus mentalidades.

If they could only be restored to their original beauty. I would love to explore them.

Lo bonito aún mal conservado sigue transmitiendo su encanto. A ver si tus fotos sirven de denuncia y alguien se digna a hacer algo por conservarlas, al menos si no éstas las que queden por preservar. Desde el punto de vista fotográfico me han gustado mucho, sobre todo el medio balcón.
