A spooky old house near a temple in Kurashiki, Okayama.
I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
Nice use of the B&W…

@Calusarus: Thanks Calusarus!
Your foreground is superb and leads the eyes towards the backdrop, making us want to enter the place !

This could have been shot anywhere in the world. B&W works quite well here!

@Cheryl: I honestly couldn't say Cheryl; the place looked completely unkempt (as you can see), but still, the objects in the garden, the unbroken windows, the lock on the gate, all made it seem like someone was still in there. Spooky hey...?
There is something quite intriguing about an old house like this. The thought of who lived there and the history of the people leaves so much to contemplate.

@Laurie: Very intriguing indeed Laurie...
What a mess, what an interesting old house . I call these house ( and have a nice collection of them ) witches' houses :)) Great shot with always charming BW !

All looks old . . but I see the march of modernism on the horizon . . a story told everywhere, I suppose.

@Ronnie 2¢: It's almost timeless I thought Ronnie - could be old, could have been built a few years ago...
I found one in a similar spooky state. Yours wins the prize though.

@Steve Rice: Thanks Steve! Strange to find these kinds of places isn't it?
Wow, this looks like a movie set.

@Twelvebit: Quite the sight, hey Twelvebit?
A beautiful composition and a perfect viewing angle, high efficiency in black and white !

@One: Cheers One!
For once....I think this one would have been good in colour! I would have liked to see the details in the garden!

@Japanalia: It was a tough call to make Gabriela, between colour and black-and-white.
That one I found was in Kurasiki too; I had to check my archives to be sure. After checking carefully, I've discovered our two photos are of the same building. We were simply there at different times of the year and in mine the vegetation is more overgrown. If you look carefully, you'll see that white bust in my image. I have another shot of it closer up. Pretty cool!

@Steve Rice: That's definitely pretty cool! What a coincidence hey... of all the places in all the world...
