Lost, forgotten..

Lost, forgotten….
Thought it was high time I attended to my blog. Life has rather got in the way, and I’ve lost all inspiration lately. But here goes….

Been sorting some things out in the house, an early spring clean I suppose. And in the course of this, discovered a few forgotten items…which in turn led to the discovery that some things had actually been lost along the way. One such was a print of an image (forgotten up to this point) which brought back memories and sidetracked me into trying to find the transparency that it came from (lost, nowhere in my archive). And most of my images were taken on a tiny digital compact camera which left a lot to be desired in the quality stakes. But at least I have preserved some future nostalgias this way.

Most  of the time I am managing to keep to the task in hand, but as described above, sometimes I just can’t resist being sent off on another track…..so I’ve decided to springclean the computer photographic files (this is a hiding to nothing, it will take me forever. But I can dream….

So on the theme of lost, or forgotten, I’ll post a few images from a trip to Cuba, some years ago. I love places with a sense of history, especially those that have seen better days, and there is a tangible sense of loss, of what once was. They invariably have a hint of the mysterious. I would have loved to explore some of the abandoned old colonial buildings, but lacked the courage.

This is the image for which I am unable to find the original to re-scan at better resolution (but it’s OK at this size)

This one fits ‘forgotten’ in the abandoned sense, I think…and even looking at it now, I still wonder what lies behind those doors.

And here’s a courtyard, with more guessing games to be played….
