Oct 2012: Walking in the forest

So we decided to go for a walk. While waiting for the flock to get together, I took some photo’s of the green. Deep autumn and the leaves have piled up

pretty bad state

the windows are all damaged

 photo 14-IMG_0049_zps003a215b.jpg

the ground is overgrown

nothing seems to be left inside other than some scrap

the brickwork is fine

 photo 17-IMG_0062_zps135003f6.jpg

but the roof has caved in..ouch. one day this was a happy house, filled with the sounds of playing children, women humming and men slouched on the couch..and now its silent with rodents and other forest animals in the depths of this broken down ruin.

Walking up the paths

Baba and Diya…

 photo 50-IMG_0217_zps0a159346.jpg

Come on, you slow pokes

 photo 51-IMG_0221_zps6699c3fa.jpg

And then both of them decided to leave us behind while they hared off into the distance

 photo 53-IMG_0227_zpse8d829c1.jpg

the weather was really beautiful

are those shadows or just the colouration of the beech tree?

 photo 59-IMG_0259_zps6ba9bf4e.jpg 

Baba has now reached the little bridge

 photo 60-IMG_0263_zps0289f62c.jpg 

and crossed it

 photo 61-IMG_0266_zps808df0b1.jpg

and is waiting for me

a pile of mossy logs
