This property belongs to a peasant lady who’s home does not have a single sign of the 21st century – no water, no electricity, no sewage facilities, no rubbish collections, no made-up roads, no kitchen, no bathroom, no drainage, no toilet, were situated in the west, a bulldozer would be used to erase all existing signs of habitation (and memories) and new modern structures erected.
Her life does include good friends, beautiful views, thousands of different wildflowers, hundreds of different butterflies and birds, total freedom from the modern world and the thrill of living a life of self reliance not seen in the ‘West’ for hundreds of years.

The picture was built using Faststone, Gimp and the loose brush in fotosketcher.

    Lovely little shack Dennis. Great to see some art from Romania too. Cheers Wiggy

  • Thanks Wiggy :)
    Romania doesn’t seem very active in that line. The Romania group on Red Bubble contains the most I have ever seen but, when I ask Google search for pictures of Mehedinti, Romania (my county) most of the pictures seem to be mine.
