Great images - that first would look great in mono also.

Snufs....hvordan kan noen la noe så vakkert forfalle til deeeee grader????
Men stripene dine er det ingenting å si på, bare at du har øynene med deg hvor enn du går!
Fikk lyst til å pirke bort gammel maling..hahaha;)
Men det finner jeg nok et eller annet sted her også...
Tenk å ha morgenkaffen på den glassverandaen da Lene.....JA....
Om den hadde vært trygg å sitte i da....flirer:))

Det var såååå koselig å være hos dere sist! Avslappende og bare kos!
Tusen takk!
Ha en superfin helg!
Her er det jobbehelg.

Goooood klem fra meg(",)

Great photos. I love old buildings, even ones that are going to ruin.

Lille meg said...

Dette har nok vært et staselig, kanskje til og med herskapelig hus en gang... Men tidens tann har tæret på det, så det nå er falleferdig. Sørgelig! Hadde min tante sett dette, ville hun ikke blitt glad. Hun var opptatt av å ta vare på det gamle, enten det var hus eller andre ting...Men min tante er ikke mer, og det er snart ikke dette huset heller, om det ikke blir gjort noe med det.
Ha ei god påske, Lene.
P.s. Jeg har laget meg en ny blogg, fordi det var så mange som ikke kom inn på bloggen "lille meg". Den nye finner du her:

Gardinerna var "sådär". Huset har stripes. Fotona är jättehärliga. Bara att börja skriva på spökhistorian!
P.S. Väntade på Dengelsk Detter eller Dalmatiner i veckans ABC:)
Ha en bra helg!

such a nice building, the hands of time has not been kind to it

Grace and Bradley said...

Very nice images, so well photographed. Amazing, seems there are still people live in there

Jolie photos pour le challenge

jams o donnell said...

Superb photos. I love how you have captured the textures. I agree with Aileni, the first shot would look marvellous in monochrome. Have a great weekend

Vita Stunder said...

Fullständigt FANTASTISKA bilder Lene!! Jag håller med Aileni och Jams om att den första bilden skulle bli en knock out i mono!

Vilket hus!! Varför hittar inte jag sådana för? ;)

Ha en fin helg Lene!

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

Wow, what an interesting take on the theme. Great job.

Brita said...

Fantastiska bilder Lene! Den första är härlig i sen sorlighet. Tycker så synd om gamla hus som förfaller.

milet said...

beautiful. thanks for visiting my ph entry.

Liz said...

But what a fantastic house that could be!

Lovely old and memory-riddled stripes.

laagan said...

very very nice. I love the first photo. The house reminded me of my grandparents house. It holds a lot of memories while growing up..

thanks for visiting my site. hope to see you again next time...

have a nice weekend

Anemone said...

Snakk om shabby chic du!!
Her tror jeg jammen ta jeg hade mistet motet jeg også ja :-))
Men se på den verandan da gitt, for noen vakre detaljer der er.
Bildene får man allikevel til å tenke en del tiår tilbake i tid, og se den skjønnheten dette huset engang har vært.

Her er det rolige dager, været er så som så, litt sol og litt regn. det positive er at snøen smelter som bare rekkern i lavlandet.
På hytta på fjellet sitter mine foreldre og er fortvilet over at vi ikke kommer i år. Sønnen vet du, i den alderen at hyttetur 3 generasjoner sammen blir litt i det tørreste og kjedeligste laget.
Ikke er han til å regjre her hjemme alene heller ennå, så i år blir det nok bare dagsturer på ski for far og meg :-))
...men koser oss, det gjør vi ja!!

Håper du nyter dagene og er ferdig med den værste lesninga du også, i alle fall, noen dager med fri har du da fortjent.

Varm klem herfra, og nå må du se innom den nye fotobloggen min.

YTSL said...

Is that your home? If so, what an amazingly interesting building you look to live in!

Arija said...

How sad to see the decline of a grand old house with remnants of past dreams still festooning some windows... what stories of love and aspirations it could tell...
You have captured it so poignantly.

Ivar said...

Great stripes, love the textures in these shots... abandoned and flaking yet they stand proud... at least for the time being :)

Charlotte said...

Innmari stilig. Det har sikkert vært veldig flott en gang. Kjempe kult med den veggen du har fått frem. Flotte fargetoner du har fått frem :)
Ha en superduper fin helg!

Mudooks said...

Wonderful! Textures galore in that wonderful building!

marta said...

I like posting the three photos showing the different aspect and details of the strips. You have an excellent eye for finding the subject and beauty. And this building is so intriguing.

Gattina said...

Those are fabulous stripes!
Painting that is a bigger job than I'd be willing to take on.
Beautiful.

Måtte innom for og ønske deg ei flott Påske med masse sol og deilig vær... kvikklunsj og ellers alt som hører med;)
Kos deg/dere!

There is something so interesting about weathered wood. I love your photos - what a unique series of stripes.

Thank you for visiting my photo hunt this week.

srp said...

I love your stripes and ALL the other photos as well. I must say the picture of the stone building with the windows and shutters is stunning. Thank you so much for visiting. I still haven't figured out how to get blogger to take my larger pictures.

june said...

What an interesting building! Good choice for the theme too...

Marylin said...

Oh wow, they're gorgeous! :) I love the first one.

I like you stripes very much, thanks for your kind words on my site :)First time visit I am guessing by the cool exterior of your house you live near the water?

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Excellent presentation. Very creative!

Amazing Gracie said...

I have something in common with your stripes: I, too, am weather-beaten!
Thanks for your comment. I got a good laugh about stripes being my background! I never thought about that...
~~~Blessings~~~

Alice Audrey said...

Fantastic take on the theme. Not just the peeling paint, but the architecture and the curtains inside. Great shots too.

kay said...

Fantastic! Eerie even.

I'm up.

the dilapidation - beautiful; the dramatic streaks in the sky - awesome!

mama meji said...

You perfectly captured the age - and state- of the building. Great shots.

Dragonstar said...

That's very old-looking wood! Is the building safe? Places like this are wonderful for photographers!

I'm glad spring has arrived for you. It's sunny and warm here - at the moment!

isaiah said...

i got to go with what Stan wrote -> the weathered look - beautiful; the dramatic streaks in the sky - awesome!
