This old FRAMO built until 1957 in Hainichen and Frankenberg, Germany and was one of the sights on a phototour I took with some other photographers from my photoclub. Taken in Steinfurt, Germany.

    I like the sense of elegant decay (decaying elegance?) in this. The bright blue paint slowly disappearing under moss, and nature’s greenery almost overwhelming the old stone building and cobblestones.

    Thanks Matt, I like your wordplay :) Yes, this whole place (house, street, car, etc) was all seeming to be years behind the surrounding houses… As if the owner purposely let it stay this way.

    Thanks Mel! HDR made this photo a lot more interesting than the original, also one of my personal favourites.

    Thanks David!

    Hi Christiaan, I love this image. I agree with Matt, it feels like it is an abandoned ruin from a lost civilization and nature has just started to reclaim it.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Me too Infinityrain!
    Rick, youre welcome :)
    Damian, maybe the owner of the car and house comes from a lost civilization? ;)
