Abandoned Buildings and Lone Landscapes around Mostar


I love coming across abandoned buildings in lone landscapes. While on a recent drive in the outskirts of Mostar I came across some nice places for landscape photography. The landscapes are mostly bare now and on this particular day it was windy as well. But that didn't stop me from going out and getting the shots. These images were taken on a drive to Blagaj. You can find some interesting, old and run down buildings here, that are nicely juxtaposed with the surrounding bare fields.





It was a chilling afternoon as we drove up the first stop for the day. I saw this old stone house, just on the side of the road. Something about it drew my attention immediately. Some bare trees were on both sides of it, showing slowly how nature takes over places like these.





Far in the distance is Mostar, and as I finished (carefully) taking this next photo, I hopped back into  my car and moved on to the next spot. It was another abandoned building with lush dark winter green trees surrounding it. I could actually see it being restored, since it has a very nice layout.





As the day ended, darkness started rushing over the lands. The landscapes here are waiting for better days, but I hope I presented their moody side nicely as well.

    1. Yes, there is a real feeling of isolation here. Especially this far out of the city. Thanks for visiting.

  7. You took excellent shots on this trip Mersad.. When I see these old abandoned buildings I can't help wondering about their history.. who lived there, what happened to them etc.

  11. The first two buildings, as well as the landscapes, look like they might be located in Arizona! I love all the various textures picked up by the camera in the first building.

    1. I also think that the sky helped a lot. There was a lot of texture in the clouds.

  14. So lovely and lonely. I like old abandoned buildings too.
    The second house ,that is only a shell, is a photographer's dream. I like how the scenery can be seen through the windows and doors of the house.

    1. I like that as well about those shots!

  15. These are excellent shots--- It appears that the second building was on the receiving end of some shelling or small arms fire. I love this kind of land--. I'd say it looks quite a bit like our high desert areas.

    1. Yes, Bill I think so too about the second building. The scenery here is known to be very desert-like since we get high heats in the summer.

  16. Mersad, I really like these. There is something about an abandoned house, or building, that evokes emotion.

  17. What a beautiful places! Love those houses and totally understand why you stopped for photographes.

  18. Always love your photos here. The tree standing next to the first building made me think of a skeleton!

  19. Abandoned buildings always make me wonder about the people who built them in the first place, and why they are now left alone, isolated and lonely. The second building looks like it's been on the receiving end of some gunfire. Your photos are eloquent testimony to the past.

    1. It probably was. I don't think that house has been touched since the war here in the early 90s.

  20. So much historical drama depicted in your photos of the abandoned buildings. And I love the landscape images as well.

  21. Very nice and moody! Great buildings, their textures captured so well.

  22. Gosh! They both have an ancient, crumbling beauty. Old places like that make me wonder about the tales they could tell. :)

  27. Mersad, you certainly captured the beauty of this abandoned landscape, it has a haunting appeal. Here in the US we seem to discard places and things and continue moving on, the same appears to happen in your beautiful country. Thanks for joining this week, please visit when you can.

  28. Very haunting photos. There must be some stories about why they were abandoned. Wonder where the owners live now if they are indeed still alive.

  29. I find a beauty in abandoned buildings but such sadness too. Love the long look down the road with fence on one side.

  31. It helps to visualize your desired wedding. Women have long planned their ideal wedding day, but with the strong influence of celebrity marriages the modern fashion for weddings has spread far and wide, and is no longer limited to the vastly rich. The choices you now have are amazing, and many old traditions are being ditched or refined for more modern day ones. So where do you start? Well, there have been plenty of movies to watch for inspiration or ideas; The Knot, Love actually, My Best Friends Wedding, even TV hits like "Friends" had its share of weddings. These are great, but these weddings are about particular wedding photo booth rental and personalities. They are fine to poach ideas that you can build on and refine, but ultimately...

  32. The world is full of businesses but do you know how important they are? You know there are very big ones like Apple, BP and Amazon and very small ones like your local shop or window-cleaner. Grandad explains how all these businesses contribute to our daily life as importantly as the air we breathe and the food we eat. Without businesses he believes we would still be living in caves or mud huts, we would spend all our time searching for food and water. There would be no schools, no doctors, no police, no government,no cars, no television, nearly nothing, This is one of a series of articles aimed by Grandad at grandchildren everywhere.

When you're a keen photographer and you have the desire to spend your working life doing something you enjoy such as photography, it would be a shame if you didn't pursue it further wouldn't it? You really don't have to join an institution or pay thousands of dollars to get started either. You simply need the passion to learn and persist.
