When I happen to visit an old settlement like Štanjel, I like to check what is the atmosphere there among the old houses at first glance:
I peek behind the corners and am admiring the works of stone craftsmen:
I look up for interesting chimneys with a personal touch:
I seek for old, cranky walls:
and vegetation, which brings the stony streets back to life:
In the end I choose my favorite look, which will be my inspiration in the days when I am not in the best mood, and when I forget to appreciate all the shiny moments around me.
How about you? Do you like old towns? Do they inspire you?
