Default Forgotten Fogo Island "saltbox" house

Here's a couple shots of a very old and long-abandoned, traditional "saltbox" house beside our home here on Fogo Island, that I took yesterday during one of my rare outside excursions. I am a bit surprised that this old relic is still standing, after all the havoc caused by Hurricane Igor recently. They must have built things tougher in the old days!

I shot these handheld with my Sony Alpha and 18-55mm SAM lens.

My apologies for my long absences from the forum, but I've been flat on my back almost always for the past few months. I am now trying a new medication to handle the pain, and am hoping for good results.

Just so you all know, I still lurk daily on here, though it is almost impossible to type while on my back; thus the lack of comments to all of your wonderful photos. Keep all the lovely pictures coming!

What a great black and white study; the cloud patterns really add to the composition.

And best wishes for success with the new medication.

Glenn,
Good to hear you can get out, it has to be tedious not being able to do the things you want. It is never fun to be ill, no matter what the nurse looks like

I just want to say that I am not too sold on the first pic, something I just cant put my finger on about the darkness of the sky. It is a good pic of the building but something is wrong, maybe some one with enough experience can help you out here. The second one is much better in my opinion. The sky is lighter and the set up is good. Thanks for sharing, hope you are on your feet soon!
Frank
