"As usual, there was no sign of life outside"

as usual, that is troublesome

Love it ... I always like images of lonely or old abandoned cottages ... they evoke stories.

oh would you please lock me into this home for a long time.

This wonderfully lonely picture reminds me of a book I read about an equally lonely, isolated house in the Eastern Provinces of Canada and what occurred there. The title and author had no trouble eluding the weak grasp of my memory. I'll look for it and get back to you.

Ha! It came back to me. The book is The Shipping News by Annie Proulx.

dear Zé, yes, calm before the storm! Beijos!

Joan Elizabeth, I thought about your comment the whole day. Interestingly today a friend visited after a 9 months' stay in Australia and we talked about the difference between many parts of Australia and the crowded part of Europe where we live. I even mentioned you and your blog, ;-). Point is, there are not that many parts of Europe where you really find that kind of cottages - space is valuable. The Alps are different. Just don't look at the chairlift poles on the left, ;-).

ρομπερτ, that is what I often think, too (as long as skiing season doesn't begin this might be the right place)

James, as I have said to Joan Elizabeth already, there are not that many isolated places around here (I took some photos of mountain peaks with the tele lens and when looking at them in original size I saw one mountaineer following the other - unbelievable). So - that's the reason why I took this photo with the chairlift poles and cables in the frame. Yes, I am that cynical - sometimes ;-).
Regarding memory: I really don't know if I've read the novel - I think I read it many years ago, but I am not sure. I am sure I don't own the book, at least. I am sure I never watched the movie, at least. Hm.

@ all of you: Thank you very much for your comments!
