Nature Taking Over [Through My Lens Nr. 40]

I love discovering spots where abandoned buildings are taken over my nature. Not only do these places provide great texture for photos, but they are also very spooky and serene. For this edition of "Through My Lens" I chose some of my favorite rustic views from the countryside. If you would like to see more click here for the full photo series called "Remains from the Past". I am looking forward to your submissions and thank you as always for participating.


Now I want to see what you have been up to. Link down below and share with the rest of us!

  11. Fantastic atmospheric photos Mersad. I often look at old buildings and wonder about the stories and details held within their walls. That first building looks intriguing. Love the spring blossom too. Thanks for sharing and hosting.

  13. Love these subjects; always perks the imagination and questions of who, what, when, why . . .

  14. Beautiful photos. I also love places where nature is taking back over. You never know what you will see and the meshing and clashing of the two is interesting yet sometimes sad. Very pretty blossoms.

  15. You captured the essence of these old buildings beautifully.

  16. Tolles Thema! Verlassene alte Gebäude haben einfach soviel Ausstrahlung und bergen so sehr das Geheimnissvolle in sich. Ein super Fotomotiv. Ich hab selber noch nie welche fotografiert.....ist aber sowas von auf meiner Bucketliste. GlG Anne

  17. I too find old to be beautiful, perhaps because today's buildings are built so poorly with no character. I also admit to enjoying wondering through old grave yards and imagining the lives of the people in them. These are wonderful pictures and I especially like the second picture ... the composition is wonderful and the beauty of the surroundings is serene. Thanks, Mersad ...

  22. I always feel sad to see an abandoned building in decay, but I always stop and take photos of them when I do. The one you found is very picturesque.

  23. i love the second photo...really a beautiful one

    ReplyDelete
  24. "Spooky" and "Serene" aren't words that one usually hears describing the same subject. But, in this case, they work. I absolutely love that second photo!

  25. I too love photographing old, tumble-down buildings. Love the photos you've shared!

  33. The second shot may be regarded by some purists as a little 'posterish' but I think it is really splendid picture.
