So sad :o(

So sad :o(
Well I can see a face here :o) AND it is sad..

Found these old deserted houses tonight, driving with a friend of mine (Gurry) - taken with my fisheye which explanes the bended lines... We have a lot of those old houses here, in fact all around Iceland... Some of them still stand, very lonely and old, some are just ruins and some are rebuilt....

Xata, stargazing..., Daniela Casalla, hermannfj, Ulf Buschmann and 14 other people have particularly liked this photo

I like this picture. The colours and the contrast. I like also how the house just sits right on the lanscape without doing nothing else. So much monology, so modest and honest?
From an architectural point of view; that´s a common sight in Iceland, after the days of the turfhouses. In the turfhouses "we" combined architecture and landscaping. The landscape and the turfhouse became one, was even more of a landscape work :) This one goes to my favourites, because of its story.

Thanks Hilmar, for your kind words and the thought behind them... I would like to add old houses to the light house trip???

very atmospherical, like a little forgotten house filled with lots of stories, thougths and dreams
