stubborn old house

text & photo: Anette Åhlander

This lovely old house, abandoned since many years now, is as stubborn as the locals - the famous "rospiggarna". New houses are built around the corner, but it's still standing there, seeing life change and people passing on the wriggling gravel road. Only a year ago, a wolf killed six sheep nearby. And this less than 30 kilometres north east of Stockholm.

It looks like another world, beautiful, but I am not sure I would like it as my 'everyday'...

A rospigg was literally a person living in Roden - this particular coastal district with an impressively long history.

I'm impressed by your photo. You managed to capture the essence of November. Grey, somewhat misty, sometimes gloomy but also a month without sharp edges and maybe, just maybe, a dreamy quality.

Thanks for sharing.

Boy, does that look dark and gloomy. Kinda like a Minnesota winter (cf Eagan)...
