MONUMENTS

Gamlar byggingar, farartæki og aðrir manngerðir hlutir í landslaginu á norðurhluta landsins. Minnisvarðar um lífið á landsbyggðinni á árum áður. Sumt af þessu verður endurgert, annað fjarlægt en flest er smám saman að hverfa og verða hluti af náttúrunni. – Ageing structures, vehicles and other man made things in the landscape in northern Iceland. Monuments of rural life in the past. Few waiting to be restored, other to be removed but most are slowly disappearing and becoming a part of the nature.

Ég er að skrifa stuttan texta við sumar myndanna og hann er hægt að sjá á eftirfarandi slóð – I am writing a short text with some of these photos and it can be seen on the following link https://www.flickr.com/photos/bjornvald/albums/72157713605173251

“When you see an aging building or a rusted bridge, you are seeing nature and man working together. If you paint over a building, there is no more magic to that building. But if it is allowed to age, than man has built it and nature has added to it –  it´s so organic.”
David Lynch

“Some things are never gonna come back again
and not that it’s making me sad
It’s quite a normal process
but it’s giving a bit of a feeling”
PJ Harvey
