Windows of Lucania….

Been having a trawl through my recent past, and a visit to Craco Veccia, in the Basilicata region of Italy, once Lucania.

Here are some windows that have seen better days:

Propped up, Craco

Sightless windows, Craco

  1. Sort of windows of last resort. V. scenic though.

  2. Another delightful display of decay, Sue. I won’t be stepping onto that balcony any time soon either.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Like many of us…we may have seen better days but make up for it in character 🙂

  4. A collection of masterpieces. The middle one is particularly masterful (should be mistressful): you’ve created – or captured – a sense of antiquity. The way the light falls in the last one? Rembrandt!

      The middle one worked particularly well, and made up for the fact I hadn’t got to this place 30 years earlier….I felt it exuded atmosphere. Initially, the last was my favourite because of the light, but they are joint best now!

  5. Enjoyed the aesthetics and mystery of your last image.

  6. Imagine all the eyes that have gazed through those windows!

  8. Mmm, that’s a province that I would like to visit some time. Yours are windows with the past, maybe glorious, maybe not but what’s left of them let us dream and imagine things. Beautifully rendered and processed too. Thank you, Sue.

  9. Wonderful old ruins Sue. You’ve had some great subjects to work with lately! 🙂

  10. I love the last one. There is a sense that someone is standing just outside the frame looking out the windows with tears streaming down her face. Melancholy.
