This is my ego-boosting photo blog, featuring abandoned places, nature, street photo and quaint places. I typically do not want to have people in my pictures, unless the photo is specifically taken for that purpose.

An abandoned Island.
An abandoned village
A fossilized elephant and a fossilized fish 

It is the end of summer and I am in a magic kingdom
Salvora, Galicia, Spain

One of two roads on the island. This one goes to the village of Salvora
The old village fountain, still functioning. a few hundred meters from the vilage

El Lavadero. Here the women washed the clothes. Also  some distance from the villasge
We are reaching the village of Salvora

Only a few houses. All still stand but it is like a tomb. Dead, abandoned quiet.


One of the houses still standing.
They left the house quite neat...

Another of the houses. No roof left, but the fireplace seems to be in good shape.


Probably the only tractor on the island. I imagine the villagers sharing it and taking good care of the most valuable investment they ever did.

One of the biggest houses in the Salvora Village. Most of the others were more of ground floor apartment type, this one is bigger and for one family only.

Looking through a window...

An offspring of some villagers pride and joy...

How can you just leave after all this woirk

Once upon a time someone pile stone upon stone to build this. Now it is falling apart and nature is taking over.

Shadows on the official pathway

I am guarding this place


The other road of the island

Isla de ons, the twin island.
Galicia is marvelous

Should I fall? Should I stay...

Fossilized elephant in the action of moving a rock

Fossilized fish. Now on dry land



I am a cut-up whale... Stop killing the whales!


In Swedish this would be called "en liten jttegryta". I do not think you have the same poetic language in English...


Going back home...
