The wall was built in the fourteenth century and has been rebuilt several times.
At the top, the wall is wide at around 50 feet.
On plan, the wall is rectangular and enclosing a very large protected area of houses.
To add to the beauty, the wall is surrounded by a moat.
There are so many things around us that remind us time is passing by, sometimes, too quickly.
This wall at Lithuania reminds me that once it was newly constructed and painted.
The paint came off, exposing the under-layers of plaster and down to the bare wall.
The windows became distorted as well.
The flowers give it a contrast, adding a bit of beauty to the aged wall.
There were many interesting sights; the most beautiful of which were the ancestral halls.
Here is an example of the beautiful walls to one of the ancestral halls.
I like the colorful tiles on the walls, the ridges of the tiled roofs and the eaves too.
Please enjoy 🙂

This week’s WPC challenge is Wall.
But natural walls – part of a cliff like wall in Zhangjiajie in China.
You can also see trees that cling to the face of the cliff too.
This week’s photo challenge is Threshold.
I don’t pretend to know what actually is a threshold; although I have used this term many times on a technical aspect.
This must be one of the more difficult themes that the Challenger has set; because of that, there are not as many submissions as on other themes.
The picture takes you through a gap then outward to the blue Adriatic Sea.
Please enjoy 🙂
