Crumbling dignity

This old building was originally built to house livestock but later became a storehouse. It had two gables and was built in the same shape as an old-fashioned turf house. The roof was made of wood and turf, while the walls and gables were concrete. The roof is gone and the top of one gable has fallen down, but one room is still used to store stuff, mostly oil drums and fence wire, while the other acts as an occasional temporary corral for horses.

It belongs to a farm that is no longer inhabited year round, but the main house is used as a summer house.

The photo was taken in colour, but as it was pretty much monochromatic anyway I went all the way and turned it into a black-and-white image. Taken in the winter of 2011-2012.
