The Balcony – Part 5

"I can recall those happy days forgot"

"And see, with head bowed on your knees, my past"

"Your languid beauties now would move me not"

"Did not your gentle heart and body cast"

"The old spell of those happy days forgot"

Note from the Shutter Bug:

Back to the balconies, this post is the second to the last part of a series of 6 sets of photos which I arranged to correspond to the 6 stanzas of the poem, “The Balcony” by Charles Baudelaire, using a line from the poem as the caption of each photo for added effect.

A balcony is one prominent feature of Georgian architecture. Homes, hotels or a government buildings often have a balcony somewhere in the structure.  The photos featured here were taken mainly in Tbilisi, the capital city and in Sighnaghi, a tourist town in the province of Kakheti. It is noticeable that the design of balconies has evolved with the times. Older buildings, mainly those found in the Old Tbilisi section of the capital, are often made of wood garnished with intricate carvings.  On the other hand, newer buildings such as those found in newly-refurbished Sighnaghi, made use of more modern designs and materials.

Thanks for joining me in visiting these balconies!
