  1. What an incredible place it would be to explore!

  2. Looks fascinating, Sue, and a nice shot too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Oh Wow!! An incredible image, Sue. It really made me catch my breath when I saw it. Whereabouts in Italy is it?

    Oh that was worth the trouble to reach it Sue .. great shot ! The birds seemingly flying through one empty window and out another adds to its general air of folorn emptiness . Can well see its appeal to you and a few movie makers 😉

  5. The rock has claimed the town!! Fabulous image Sue!

  6. You’ve made old look old and the ruinous evocative.

    (I was outraged the other day to see the pleasure of ruins called ruin porn.)

      Love your description, Meg! As for that comment re Dame Rose’s book, how ridiculous…it is a wonderful book, fantastic prose,,..clearly, they are ill-educated

  7. And now I’ve listened to the broadcast and thought you might be interested in these links. Once I’ve posted them I’ll go and have a hunt for and session with Dame Rose.

      What was the broadcast, Meg? And I can’t believe I missed that Tate exhibition! Well, I can, because there were a lot of things going on at the time…….

  8. It looks like its scrambled its way out of the ground and will slide its way gradually back into it.

  9. my goodness, this is wonderful! love how you shot this! craco vecchia in Italy, will be on My List as well, love it 🙂

  10. Magnificent, Sue! And your recommended one is truly breathtaking! I have missed out on your first post…how could I? You master of Decay!

  11. I love those Italian cliff towns. And you captured it dramatically in this photo. The black and white treatment is perfect for the photo.

  12. Hello Sue! What a fascinating place. I think your choice of B&W just perfect!

    • Sue

      Hi Adrian! How are you doing? I’ve not been blogging much for a while, too much to do… But I do love a Silent Sunday, and thought this fit the bill!

  13. Love this! Exploring abandoned places is so thrilling.

  14. I agree with Otto. A dramatic capture, very beautiful. I only need directions to get there 🙂

  15. ooh, would love to explore there!

  16. Fabulous shot Sue, all those “eyes” peering down!
