Thursday’s Special – Traces of the Past 30/08/2018

A couple of closer views of an old abandoned town in Basilicata. A place that has to be one of my favourite deserted places….full of enigmatic, mournful silence…

I know I have posted these before, but…..

Propped up, Craco

Linked to Traces of the Past at Paula’s here


  1. Abandoned town? I wonder what could be the reason. Lack of work? Superb images, Sue!

  2. Love them both, Sue. Worth posting again (although I don’t remember seeing them the first time.) Have a great weekend.


  3. …but…we still just love them, Sue!

  4. Nothing wrong with re-posting abandonment and decay, Sue. I enjoyed them. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. (EN) Very original photos. It’s in the south (of Italy) and you must know how to reach the place.My compliments Sue.
    (IT) Foto molto originali. È nel sud (d’ Italia) e devi sapere come raggiungere il posto. I miei complimenti Sue.

  6. I’m sure we could bring it back to life again, Sue. I’m game 😃

  7. Amy

    Love the 2nd one especially. The arch framed it beautifully! 🙂

  8. How sad they look as though they were a beautiful place to live before the landslide. I wonder where all the people went. What a terrible upheaval to face. How long ago was it abandoned?

  9. Suzanne

    The first photo is particularly effective.

  10. I don’t remember seeing them so I’m glad you posted them.

  11. Impressive composition in the second shot, Sue. So happy with your entry xx
