Artist's Description

I happened to find this old farmhouse which was just being fully renovated, hidden away on a side road on the island of Ruegen. Many old houses on the island which were run down during or just after the Communist era have now been re-aquired by their former owners or bought up as holiday homes.

The thatched roof was being completely renewed. At the back of the house some sections were still visible that hadn’t been done yet, green, moss-covered and rotten. It was fascinating to see how the bales of reeds were packed together (bottom righ), placed on the roof and then cut back to shape with the precision of an experienced barber!

I took this in October 2007 and would be interested to know what it looks like now!

Nikon D200, 26mm, 1/60s, f/11, ISO 100.
