F is for Farmhouse

This florid fallen-in farmhouse near Sibiel was my favorite homestead in Transylvania. I found it on our foray through the fabulous old villages I posted a few months ago.


Sibiel, Romania, 2011

Check out the other fantastic F posts linked to ABC Wednesday.

Oh my, I think I would have worn my camera out photographing this house. It looks like a Hansel and Gretel fairytale.

How interesting! It looks like the house and barn are attached. I wonder when it was abandoned as a home. Hmmm.

Berowne said...

A legitimate work of art, the second one.

Leslie: said...

Ditto Roger...thought the second was a painting and was going to ask if you'd done it. This house looks like it has such character and makes one wonder about its past history and who lived there and what life was like. Fantastic post, Francisca, and have a fabulous week,

Very colorful farmhouse!

First Grade's Fees is what I have for ABC this week.

Kathy said...

Just the kind of place I like to photograph. Although in a state of decay its character still shines through.

Andrea said...

Hi Francisca, those windows remind me of the colors in Solo, Indonesia, where portals be it windows or doors are all colored vividly and attractive.

T. Becque said...

What a great place and that window photo is to die for!!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Your close up has a wonderful level of abstraction. It really could be on a canvas. Sharp observation.

Kala said...

That second photo looks like a pair of eyes!

Gorgeous colors.

Shooting Parrots said...

Those windows are a work of art. I had to enlarge the photo to check that they hadn't just been painted on the building!

How painterly. I love it.

jennyfreckles said...

It is lovely - I wonder who thought to paint it in such amazing colours, only to have to abandon it.

James said...

What a wonderful place! I love these photos and I'd love to take a few myself!

Kaori said...

This building is like something from a movie! I love how you captured it in your first photo, Francisca. I could ramble around the farm all day :D
