Anyone home?

It all depends...


This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at The Monochrome Weekly

Either the kitten is active or... perhaps not. Creepy.

Petunia said...

Spør meg hver gang om hvorfor slike litt forfalne ting kan være så vakkert??
Og spesielt når man gjør det om til sort/hvitt. Det treffer liksom noe.
Jeg håper ikke dagen din bare blir helt sort eller hvit, men at du kommer deg ut og nyter den fine høstdagen... Jeg sitter her og vurderer en tur til Televåg. Har aldri vært ute der og det er jammen på tide.
Jeg satt og så på "Norske attraksjoner" i går med Linda Eide på nrk og fikk en virkelig aha opplevelse. De viste oss "Bergensbakken" - en hoppbakke på baksiden av Rundemannen. Noe jeg aldri har hørt om. Dit må jeg også ta en tur en dag.
Man tror man kjenner byen sin du...

Kitty said...

I'd say probably - but they may not be able to answer the door if you knock ;)

John said...

Turin shroud?

Dina said...

I see his face, but through a glass, darkly.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Ja, der ser det ut til å være noen hjemme ser jeg :o) Pent s/h bilde Rune og ikke minst stilig utført! Ha en fin søndag.

Morten Pedersen said...

Spooky!

Kenobiitti said...

Looks like there hasn't been anyone home for a while.

Great shot!

√ Abraham Lincoln said...

This is a nice shot, RuneE. I like the idea that it has remained unpainted for so long that the board on the left has split. I would hate to run my hand onto that splinter.

I spent one day restoring Patty's computer. She clicked on an email she had sent that could not be delivered and was returned. She was curious as to why it wasn't delivered and clicked on the notice. Well, it was a "worm" that locked her computer and wouldn't let her do anything. When I got up the next day, she came out in her PJs and said, "My computer won't come on."

I had to reformat the hard drive and return it to the factory, new, condition. She lost everything on the computer. I feel sorry for her as it takes a lot of time to put her things back on the computer that she had saved on an external hard drive. Beware folks. If you send an email and it comes back, you should not open it.

I have not been able to get around much of late.

Prospero said...

You have goblins in Norway!

Carver said...

I wonder if anyone is home. I like the weathered look. It lends itself to photography. You shot this so well.

imac said...

I like this, but = *would love to turn the clock back* on this too.

AnneKa said...

Må si som Petunia, utrolig hvor vakkert forfalne ting kan være. De bærer liksom historien med seg, og i sort/hvitt forsterker man den følelsen. Og jeg hadde ikke hatt lyst å møte han med sjegget som står i vinduet der, en mørk kveld.
:))
Har som et lite mål for meg selv å prøve å kommentere hos de som er så snill å legger igjen en kommentarer hos meg. Men som du sier, det er ikke alltid man får det til. Fikk så mange kjekke kommentarer sist gang og kjente litt på det at jeg ikke fikk svarte. Men nå er det ny runde og nye muligheter:) Ha en fin uke!!

Frank said...

Great shot. Love all the tones of black, white and gray.

Nice post!

lynnwiles said...

You did it again - another fabulous window shot.

Janie said...

the spooky, ghostly visage in the window goes with the old building, perfect for black and white!

Dimple said...

Eerie. The ghostly image in the curtain reminds me of a owl, maybe. This gives me the creeps!

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Creepy, great shot it takes a very creative person to notice the potential in a motif as that.

You are a genius Rune.

James said...

This looks great in black and white. I love all of the aging details. A wonderful picture to be sure.

GAWO said...

Nifst med det ansiktet bak glassruten. Stod det noen innom vinduet der eller ..... Jeg hadde ikke våget meg til å ta et bilde en gang. Hadde sett spøkelser over alt etter å ha tittet inn der.

Della said...

Yes, of course somebody is there. I can see him/her/it. Spooky!

Nina Xi said...

Enkelt men mycket talande!

Robin said...

How eery looking. Great image, if a bit spooky.

Barbara Martin said...

A spooky photo indeed, as there's face lurking in the window pane.

RennyBA's Terella said...

Scaring to see the ghost in the window :-)

Arya said...

Nydelig bilde av et nydelig gammelt vindu. Det appelerer noe i meg hver gang jeg ser maling som burde vært fjernet - på leit etter arbeid, kanskje?

Uansett - flott bilde!

Ida said...

Hei,
og takk for kommentaren fra deg hos meg nå i kveld.
Hyggelig! :)
Det har vært godt med en pause fra bloggingen... ;)
Ser nå frem til å blogge litt igjen.
Har kikket innom her med jevne mellomrom.

Bildet ditt er utrolig - på mange måter! Og ja, jeg tror at det finnes mye mellom himmel og jord.
Veldig mye som ikke vi kan forklare, til og med...
Jeg godtar ikke at alt det man ikke kan bevise vitenskapelig ikke finnes, eller at det ikke kan forklares, føles osv. ;)
Det finnes nok mange forklaringer på hva du har fanget med linsa di her. Spennende!
Jeg ser helt tydelig en mann (ansikt) til høyre i bildet.
Ser flere ansikt her, men det førstnevnte er veldig tydelig.

Det finnes kanskje flere motiv (i bilder) enn det vi ser ved første øyekast... ;)

Dina ... UK said...

If there is I don't want to meet them....lol
inspiring image, did you go inside?

p.s. I nearly posted Skipton castle...lol

Starnitesky said...

I like the weathered look - monochrome brings out the texture.

Rocky Mountain Retreat said...

Indeed that is quite unusual by highlighting areas you would not see in the colored version for sure. How interesting this photo turned out! Very neat!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Kind of spooky but I LIKE this kind of photo. It certainly sparks the imagination and that's a very good thing!

I did not even notice the eye in the window until I was redin comments. I was concentrating on the 4 holdes in the shape of a square and wondered what kind of a sign used to be posted thee. . .

Could tht be a reflection of your eye?

PERBS said...

I meant "reading"

Leslie: said...

Kind of a kreepy kapture! lol

Bengbeng said...

this is an interesting pic. i wouldnt like to stand just outside that particular door late at night. it looks spooky

Sistertex said...

What an awesome shot! "Who ya gonna' call?" (GHOST BUSTERS!)
;)

Quite the fantastic catch - you are so talented!

Clueless in Boston said...

Beautiful! Great texture and composition.

magiceye said...

magnificently creepy!

Maria Berg said...

All the insects living in the wood are home but people I do not know.

Interesting story with the benches, MB

Charlotte - FO² said...

wow spooky!! Der ser ut til at det er noen hjemme ja...

Malyss said...

Perfect shot to describe my present state of mind: i'm home, but at the same time, I'm still somewhere else, much more to west..

Daryl said...

ooooooooooooh ... beware the spirit of the cat .. actually it looks like a cat drawing I have seen that was done by an artist called Laurel Burch

Vita Stunder said...

Grymt snyggt Rune!!
Jag ser ett ansikte därinne - fullständigt underbar stämning.

This Eclectic Life said...

What an interesting picture on so many levels! From the contrast of the lace curtains to the rough wood, all the way to that odd "face." I'm seeing so many pictures today that conjure ghost tales.

I like this one!

Viola said...

Ups.. håper ikke det....? Flott og stemningsfullt bilde!

Marie said...

Neppe...


Vakkert på ein litt rufsete måte :)

Regina said...

Really good one!

Dragonstar said...

A strange, disturbing image. But I love the old windows you find, and the bench reflection in the post below is perfect!

Cheffie-Mom said...

Great photo - spooky!!

AKO said...

Vilken läskig figur det är i fönstret! Det ser ut som en blandning mellan ett lejon, en uggla och en gubbe med skägg. Bra fångat!!

AVCr8teur said...

Nicely done...looks like someone is home and waiting by the window. It is spooky!

The Things We Carried said...

Eerie!
