Everywhere, sheds like this, fashioned from stone quarried in the mountains and wood hewn in the local forest, are being replaced by modern utilitarian structures. Only a few remain in our 600-year-old village.
very lovely photo, and good close up detail.

There is something about old doors that fascinate me. You did a great job capturing this one - the colors are awesome and there is a lot of detail. The more you look, the more you see!
Well done Michael!

What a beauty!!! It has everything..details, colours,patterns...Old wood and old stone are always full of effect!And some grass added for the picturesque! (must be the fodder in the shed!)Well seen, Michael!
8 Jan 2008 6:51am
@Japanalia: Thanks, Gabriela. Yes the shed is stuffed with fodder. I loved how it bulged out. Somehow it was very appropriate for Christmas.

@Illuci: Thank you, Illuci. You're right. Everything is there already. We just have to click the shutter.
Oh, what a pity they´re disappearing. They look really great.

This is a beautiful shed and I am so happy you have shared this with us. It is a wonderful photo. I know that progress cannot be stopped, but at least we can preserve the old in photos.

@martie: You are so right, Martie. We can preserve the past in pictures. Thank you for your kind comment.

ça sent bon la campagne , ça donne envie d'allez faire un tour des foins comme quand j'etais gamin
8 Jan 2008 12:00pm
@PANAMEPHOTOS: Merci pour la remarque, Paname. Je suis d'accord. ça sent bon la campagne.
Stupid, STupid, Stupid PEOPLE to get rid of such beauty. I love wood, I love old wooden doors, I love old windows, and old entrances...Thank you for capturing it before it goes away.
8 Jan 2008 12:05pm
@Lorraine: I agree totally, Lorraine. Your passion for such beauty is well-justified. Thanks so much.

@Steven: Thanks, Steven. Appreciate the comment.
Nice detail, seems to be filled to the brim with hay... These old structures should be put under protectionso nobody can tear them down.
8 Jan 2008 1:35pm
@Wolfgang Prigge: Thanks, Wolfgang. You're right about the protection. Yeh, they stuff as much hay as possible in to last for the winter.
What more can I add? This is beautiful. :)
8 Jan 2008 1:55pm

A village that old must hold incredible beauty.
I love the textures and colours.
8 Jan 2008 4:24pm
@Michael Rawluk: Thanks, Michael. Yes, the village certainly has its share of beauty especially in the mountainous surroundings.
Excellent job, cataloguing the remaining treasures of your town. 70 years old is pretty ancient around where I live....
8 Jan 2008 5:48pm
@Walt: Thanks, Walt. I plan to do the best I can but things get pulled down and rebuilt pretty quick.
nice colors and textures

@yiannis krikis: Many thanks, Yiannis, for your kind comment.
Nice insulation! Cool looking doorway. Neat shot! :)
8 Jan 2008 6:31pm
@HorseRotorVator: Thanks. You're right about the insulation. Hay was even piled in the attics of houses to keep them warm.
Too bad they are disapearing! I love old structures and things because of the history behind, it makes me wonder...
8 Jan 2008 6:58pm
@Sandrine: Thanks, Sandrine. I guess they call it progress.
Maybe we all must fight with our cameras to protect little jewel like this, well done
8 Jan 2008 6:59pm
@Pedro: I agree that it is a fight worth taking up. Many thanks, Pedro. I guess many people don't see the beauty that we see.
J'ai toujours été fan des vieilles portes. Celle ci est magnifique, Bravo

It is rustic old structures such as this that make wonderful images. Great find, wonderful capture and framing. Eventually it may become a memory but you have documented it in some way. Thank you for giving us this view and story.
