Just another decaying village house situated somewhere in Poland. Not much was left inside apart from one messy but still fully furnished room. Despite being taken over by decay it was still quietly whispering about the times when the place was not bitten by time. However, quite a huge should be overcome in order to hear this story.
A perfect example of the influence a time of the year may have on a place. The Bagry Lake is one of the liveliest and most crowded sites in Krakow (Poland) during warm summer days, however, it is completely different before the hot season starts. Going there during a gloomy spring day, when the lakeside is still grey and empty, makes an impression of a journey to a different dimension. Entering it lets see another, spooky face of the site which reminds nothing of the joyful one seen during summertime.
After seeing village houses usually abandoned since dozens of years and furnished in an old fashioned way, a real surprise was to enter one with a few relatively modern details inside and taken over by decay quite recently. The almighty time had not managed to bit the interior of the building too much yet, so it was still possible to have a short glimpse on the life in this place when it was in use. That is, in a few words, a story of a decaying house found in a village in Southern Poland.
You can never know what you will find on the way to well known places. Sometimes these finds may stick in mind for even longer time than the final destination of the trip.
It was a dusky December afternoon. The sun was getting closer to the horizon painting everything with dark shades and that day’s trip to South-eastern Poland was going to the end. However, a small abandoned house on the hill near the road made us stop and have a look inside. Quite cosy at first sight and bright from the outside, mainly because of its white walls, it had a completely different, gloomy atmosphere behind its decaying doors.
Time of the day is an element rarely taken into consideration when going to visit some place and is never treated as a part of it. However, it is also the one which has so strong impact on the site, that can turn it into a fairytale scenery. Photos below show the Anna and Erazm Jerzmanowski Park in Krakow (Poland) seen in an early October morning.
What can make you stop by some place while following a backroad? Sometimes it is just a peaceful nature corner, a rail track crossing it, and an old house with a couple of cats sitting in its decaying window.
A few sights from the Prokocim District in Krakow (Poland) taken in different times of a year, exploring its farthest corners.
The continuation of the old pet cemetery ‘Psi Los’ in Konik Nowy (Poland)—its new part (more about the old cemetery here). It is much smaller than the previously mentioned old one but the site is expanding—more an more of the land there is becoming covered with at the same time gloomy and cheerful little graves. Despite its small size the cemetery already consists of plenty of weird tombs surprising any visitor of the place.
Whichever place I visit, I always show its most interesting details. However, I will not even try to fool you that I attempted to do it this time, as in case of a site I wanted to present now it was simply impossible. The mentioned place is the pet cemetery ‘Psi Los’, situated in Konik Nowy, a village near Warsaw (Poland), consisting of two a bit remote from each other parts (the old and new cemetery), and full of the details turning it into a really weird place.
