Melancholy Blues

These rundown doors have a serious case of the melancholy blues. Tagged with graffiti and covered with flyers, I doubt anyone lives or works there anymore. But, despite the grim appearance, life still goes on around this forgotten place which has now become the stage for a street musician in Athens.

    Which part of Athens is this, Donna? Hope these musicians have another place to live?

    1. Hi Jesh, This is in the Plaka/Monastiraki area of Athens where there are plenty of tourists walking about. While I don’t know this man’s circumstances, he likely has another place to live and plays his guitar for extra income.

    I can’t even muster enough gumption to play my banjo on my back porch, much less on a street. lol Love the blue doors!

    1. Thanks! Greece is filled with blue doors but each one has its own special character. I also wouldn’t be able to muster the gumption to play music on the street. Thankfully, there are talented folks that feel comfortable sharing their music with us.
