Wherefore art thou?

Wherefore art thou?, originally uploaded by fotofacade.

The way is barred for such a romantic soul , to the house of Juliet :_(

I found the crowds around the balcony at the fictional house of Juliet intimidating! So - I went the next day early on and the doors were barred. But, not disheartened by the absence of access I decided to make the most of it and photographed the gates instead.

This place has become a shrine, a symbol - more than the original intent. Thousands have scribed their names upon the walls and posts around the house.

Shakespeare would have been pleased, but as for Romeo?
