Abandoned crofters cottage

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Decayed or Rusty.

When I read the prompt I thought of a favourite photo that would work well for the prompt. An abandoned crofters cottage on the Isle of Skye I photographed 40 years ago.

The problem was I only had a low quality digital version, a copy of a slide that was a copy of a print from the negative. I had gone through my negative files twice without finding the original negative. So I went through the files a third time, determined to find the negative which I eventually did.

Abandoned House

My contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Any Kind of House.

An abandoned crofters cottage at Elgol on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. I was one of four photography students who spent a week on the Isle of Skye at Easter rather than revising for exams.

This shot was taken on the only morning we had rain. Shortly before taking this shot I had been standing in a stream with the art schools newest large format camera on a tripod in the stream with me.

Abandoned Crofters Cottage

Monochrome Monday is going back to 1980 when four photography students traveled to the Isle of Skye on the west coast of Scotland.

I added grain to the digital version to give it a more gritty feel. It shows an abandoned crofters cottage at Elgol with the mist and cloud shrouded Cuillin in the background across Loch Scavaig.
