Locks, latches and layers

In and around our small village of Armadale there is so much history - so many small reminders of lives lived. Fiona and I visited a very old croft cottage a few days ago and I was just so taken by the history that was evident in the locks and latches of the derelict cottage.

All the photos below are from that one cottage.

All of us leave our small traces behind. At times others come by and ponder who lived life here and why is green the dominant colour.  And one can but hope that it was a life that had peace and joy as well as the obvious hardships.


  1. you have such a good eye for colour and texture!

  2. This is a warm and wondrous collection of photos. Love these kinds of things.
