Week One of Fifty Two
So, I've decided to do a 52 in 2011. That's just one photo a week, which I think is just about manageable. I am doing this with the help of Talk Photography who very helpfully suggest a theme every week.
This weeks theme was accommodation and I knew immediately what I wanted to shoot. There are so many ruined houses around here that, I knew it would feature one of them. This house is about 200 meters from my house and was actually lived in up until probably only 40 years ago.
Inside there are the remains of an enormous fire place and behind this is a room where they used to crush olives for oil. There are two enormous round stones and three huge great big terracotta "tinajas" which were used for storing the oil. I might just have thought about the possible appropriation of said items, as they would look lovely adorning my garden. However the room that they are in appears to be have built around them, and the only way of removing them would be with a bulldozer. Which I think somebody might just notice.
So that's my contribution for this week and I am now eagerly awaiting next weeks subject
