assos, kefalonia, greece

this is one of the many old houses that was damaged in the famous earthquake of 1953. this was typical of more affluent houses, but many villages were completely wiped out and were re-sited in later years.

many much older historic buildings and sites were also damaged and bear the scars, but this picture reminds me of how, even after this great trauma... they still remain characterful and artistic.
