Destruction

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue November. 02, 2017 1062 views

Our last destination today was Buje. It was already late in the afternoon and the sun stand low. We followed the signs to the historic and architectural highlights of the town. One of them is St. Martin’s church. Around the little church are lots of old and broken tombstones. We followed the way through the abandoned cemetery to a modern ruin. Just an edge of the building still stands. I don’t know if it is really a destroyed house of the Yugoslav Wars, but I think it is perfect example for the destruction every war causes.

I shot a series from different angles, lot of them in b/w. Actually I like them all for different reasons and I couldn’t decide ...

Danke!
Die Aussicht war absolut großartig - ich habe sie Roland überlassen ... Mir hat die "hässliche" Situation - ja, ich weiß, das klingt irgenwie absurd - besser gefallen.

I was actually shocked about this contrary situation: beautiful view vs destroyed house!

The tragic is often beautiful

You are right! I see this combination very often in your photos too and I'm somehow ashamed to like the tragic in this photos so much, because someone has actually to live with it.

I liked and disliked the situation in the same moment I saw it.

Love this moody series.....mono versions are even more powerful, IMHO....

I couldn't decide, because the colorful photos are somehow "colorless" too.

The have some "gothic" in it but you should have seen the situation: real and unreal at the same time.
