Abandoned : Weekly Photo Challenge


Image

Barrack Street, Cork

The old house above in the older part of Cork City, has fallen into disrepair and has lots of slates missing, so I would imagine that the owners have long since abandoned the house, especially in winter, when the wind is howling down through the roof.

Abandoned house, Curragh Woods, Midleton

The second picture is of the ruins of an old cottage in the middle of Curragh Woods,   This old cottage has a well nearby where the occupants would have had running water, but the only way in to the cottage would have been to climb up through the woods from the main road.    The people who lived there used to work on the neighbouring farms, but in the days before electricity it would have been a cold dreary place in winter, though there was no shortgage of firewood to keep them warm.

    Your photos are really evocative–so moody and mysterious. I wonder if there are ghosts . . .
