Stonework in Ireland

I shot this in 1972, somewhere on the west coast of Ireland. It didn’t look like a master mason did the work, but more like a farmer with an intuitive sense of building. I love the soulful rock work, the colors and placement of stones — obviously gathered nearby. Look at the five different funky window/door lintels. Looks like a fairly new slate roof. Abandoned, but looks sound.

    love the detail….Well, love most things made of “rocks” and “stones”, grin.

    mmm you say you don’t think it was a master mason, but if this structure is as old as it seems….It must have been one heck of a skillful stonemason to have them hold together for so long. In fact, hold together long enough to make it worth while to put up that newish slate roof. ???
