HWW – Old Ireland

County Mayo in Ireland has its fair share of dilapidated dwellings. I suspect because there is a lot of land to people ratio, once a place gets old or someone leaves it, it is simply left to rot. Quite unlike most places around England itself where a building like this would soon be re-built to make a new nice property again. This taken near our holiday dwelling in the hamlet of Tippe near Belmullet. The sky was grey and quite miserable and so the old fashioned mono effect here suits the mood and time I think. The wall belongs to the old slipway running into ‘Blind Harbour’. See PiP

Have a good day.
