Brick wall

Just a small window in a load of bricks and it makes a little house in Spain

looks rather prison-like, imo. wonder how it looks from the inside.
Chantal Huijbregts: well, not at all...
I have found many of these houses in Spain interesting Chantal.
Chantal Huijbregts: they look so rural, I love the use of the rocks, so much natural to bricks
Might be very dark inside? I like your photo - the composition is great off center like that!
Chantal Huijbregts: yes, that it might indeed... a light is needed

A load of stones/rocks is more like it, Chantal...kinda like what we saw in France. Use what's in your own from yard!

I like the minimalism of this.
Chantal Huijbregts: and they all had to be carried up here, over 1.000 meter high
Looks like something i might have built grin
Chantal Huijbregts: are you the Lego builder type?
Very nice picture!

Response: Yes, I have show the picture before but it is the text under the picture that is important because I´m looking for models. You can translate from Swedish to English in Google Translate. smile
Chantal Huijbregts: okay, that is why I recognized it, any luck so far...

Superb stone wall and a splendid framing. Magnificent image. Chantal nice day.
Chantal Huijbregts: thanks a lot Tede, same to you
well Chantal, you are over writing it. I agree with Ginnie, this is actually where Minimal art was born smile, same for Arte Povera (you do what you can with whatever available) smile
Chantal Huijbregts: and so we should still work Juan
I wonder if the bars are to keep people out or to keep them in? smile
Chantal Huijbregts: I think keep them out
Small windows and the thick stone walls keep the summer heat out and the room cool. They also keep the winter wind out and the heat from the fire in.
Chantal Huijbregts: they do, but the light too

I see some neighbours may have started picking stones out of this wall for own use.
Chantal Huijbregts: haha, used them for their house maybe
I like the composition Chantal, but feel something is lacking,something to draw the eye,perhaps some colour on the windowsill, or a light in the window,having said that, you can only work with what you have got,and it does have a certain minimalist feel to it.
Chantal Huijbregts: there was not more to work with but this Frank
looks like jail smile
Chantal Huijbregts: It was not
Beautiful composition!
That type of window is actually against the fire safety regulations in the UK. wink
Chantal Huijbregts: thanks a lot

Very minimalistic, lovely texture of the stonework with the hint of green form the window smile
Chantal Huijbregts: indeed Linda
An amazing wall! Looks like it should fall down. Nice composition.
Chantal Huijbregts: so rural isn't it
Works very well, good in b&w I would imagine.
Chantal Huijbregts: I thinks so to, maybe I give it a try sometime
I love these rocks. The window bars made thing of a small town jail. smile
Chantal Huijbregts: they make the photo don't they.
A bit like yesterdays door, but what amazing stonework, straight from the quarry almost.
Chantal Huijbregts: the same building, very well noticed Brian
it does look a bit like a prison wall Chantal... nice texture in the stones....petersmile
Chantal Huijbregts: thanks, but no prison Peter
Love it!!...wonderful find.
