Photo Of The Week: BENNI
Three interesting buildings which definitely have the Scandinavian touch, neat and fresh.
Thanks, Pat. We are trying our best to keep the exploiters from tearing them and building glass and concrete monsters. The village north of us has fought tooth and nails from being subjected to a highrise in the middle of the place.
Hi Anders. Three great photos for Heidi's theme!! As you know, I lived in Sweden for a while, so am familiar with traditional Swedish buildings. I love all three of these!! Do you know anything of the history of these particular ones?
Thanks Mitch. I too love these old houses. Unfortunately not.
great buildings andersthanks
Thanks Heidi and your welcome.
What a nice peek at a windmill in the second picture. Is that a little round window in the last one? Very nice shots.
Thanks Benni. Indeed it is.
Its amazing how different the architecture is in each country/area. Love the middle shot ... something special about a thatched roof!! Great photo's all of them.
very nice neighborhood so different from mine. I still remember those kind of buildings when I was in Swedes many years ago. hej hej
Thanks and hej, hej back, Nico.
Lovely captures Anders you live in a very nice area
Thanks Baz. indeed I think so too.
Hi Anders, I like all the geometric shapes of your neighborhood. :)
*sigh* exactly like the small old village I grew up in , the church there had a sign on saying anno 918 .....here in south africa the oldest you will find is around 1800 and they are rare. those old houses should be preserved as National Heritage pieces, for sure. Lovely shots, Anders.
Thanks Sophie and Marianne.
Great shots, Anders! I love the thatched roofs in the first and second one.
Three different plain structures Anders, I do like the thatch roofs very much.
Thanks Debby and Shayna. So do I - in the olden days they could build to last.
Neat shots of three different buildings, yet all with a feel very different from what you can see in the south of Europe...
