33. hallway

Black and white paint on wall. Ground floor of my block of flats. Romanian wording ('flacari' = 'flames'). The staircase was renovated at some point in the past. The walls were painted white and left in that state for two weeks. Then the administrator of the building decided to smudge the walls with thick daubs of orange-brown paint, thinking it would look cleaner than the white layer, for a longer period of time. More here.
