No Longer Occupied

Photo Information
Willow Cottage, Fisherhead, Robin Hoods Bay, near Whitby North Yorkshire.

Unfortunately, this cottage has fallen into disrepair, but it just adds to the atmosphere f this wonderful place, which just oozes history and charm. It's very close to my heart too, as it is where my family originates. Going back many centuries, the Storm family were the heads of the community in Robin Hoods Bay, being Master Mariners and Shipowners, who became rich from fishing and whaling.

Like the detail and POV. Your accompanying text lends poignancy to this closeup.

It's a bit worrying that there are dead (?) butterflies in there too.

I've always had the impression that the residents of RHB, and Whitby too, have less respect for their charming environments than the people visiting! Despite that, I love both to bits! Most poignant shot David!
