Last October I announced in a post called ‘Fisherman Style‘ that I would be taking it easier than a photo a day, but also to go venture into old photos which I like but didn’t get any attention then because I was still the only one reading my blog at that time. Some of the photos from those times I will revisit, remaster and repost once in a while like I promised.
Even before I started posting photos daily from august 2011 I already had some photos up here; The one above was actually the second photo on this blog and I can imagine nobody went 433 published photos back in time to 14 April 2011, so here it is again! At that time I wasn’t tagging, linking or titling my posts yet, but it’s taken in the semi desert called Bardenas Reales about 100km west of Zaragoza.
The photo below is the first photo that I ever published and also one of the reasons I thought I sometimes visited and photographed places with a result that was uniquely mine: I called it eYe.
This one was taken on the fenced ground of The Sanatorium of Agramonte; first this was a luxurious hotel but after all personnel were assasinated in the Spanish Civil War, dictator Franco decided to turn this place high upon Mountain Moncayo into an anti-tuberculosis institute.
I revisited this place many times in the two years I lived in Zaragoza. For the Spanish this is a haunted place, but although the forest is taken over and there are sounds of nature and echoes everywhere inside this building, I was only intrigued by its history and crumbling state…
