Solitude Standing (just)

Here is my offering for the WordPress photo challenge this week.

Craco Vecchia has been minus its human inhabitants for several decades now, and the sightless windows and circling birds high above say ‘solitude’ to me…..

This quote might be apt for some:

“The overhangingness and the staringness are unnerving”
Elizabeth Bowen, A Time in Rome

  1. Suitably spooky, Sue. Like the cover of a Gothic horror novel!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. great photo, Sue, looks nearly like Count Dracula’s castle

  3. Now there’s a place to add to my “to do list”!
    I had to look it up to find out where it is and what an interesting story it has. It seems to have become a tourist hit and now has a few safe walks into the ghosty area. Were you there recently Sue?

  4. From the way it looks and from what I read about it and its abandonment online, it might not always be standing (just), which would be a shame. I’d love to go poking around there. Looks much different in the sunshine. Your shot looks quite spooky!

  5. Eerie and mysterious and thought-provoking…

  6. made me think of Suzanne Vega

  7. Wonderful how you have anthropomorphised the building! There really is something about the Pleasure of Ruins. As usual – beautiful, evocative photograph.

  8. Very Hitchcock/Du Maurier Sue!

  9. I like the apt quote but I haven’t read the book 😦 Happy Sunday, Sue!
