Time to Go
Some 30 photographs of abandoned crofthouses appear at the Deafening Echoes Exhibition at the FotoSpace Gallery at The Rothes Halls in Glenrothes, Fife. They are the work of Ian Paterson and somehow bring to life the deserted and derelict. These two examples are from Harris, with the image above reminding us that the opening hours at the Gallery are 10.00 - 17.00 on Mondays - Saturdays, until Wednesday 8 May. 'Free admission' comes to mind in connection with the room below where, despite the obvious passage of time, the former owner's choice of colour for the stove still makes an impact.
