The croft pt. II

Last weekend I was back at Lierfoss. This time to visit a friend and just relax at the countryside. My sister and her family came too, which was nice. We spent most of sunday together, eating good food, playing and being outside making a snowman.

I had some time to get out my camera too this weekend. I went back to the croft. My parents are spending a lot of time there, cutting down unwanted trees and bushes. It takes a lot of time. Dad went there with my uncles tractor and I drove my mum there. Mum wanted me to help out, but I said I couldn’t. I had more important things to do, I needed to photograph.

The weather wasn’t as good as last time I was there photographing, it was a bit more foggy, but I still managed to capture some of the beauty of that place.

Enjoy!

The croft

Last saturday I went home to where I grew up, to visit a friend. The weather was really nice, so I took the opportunity to photograph some too. Dad took me to this place, a piece of land that my uncle ownes. My parents have been working there; tiding up, cut donw trees and bushes.  Long time ago, like 50 years, this was a croft. Many people has live there. My grandfather had a farm and needed help to run it. The people he hired lived on that croft. Apart from working on my uncles farm for at least 8 hours a day, they had to work when they came home too — just to take care of the croft. It was hard life.

Dad told me all this when we were there. He is a great storyteller and know so much about all sorts of stuff. He always has a story to tell when we visit places. I like to listen to those.

These photos might now be so special to you, but to me they carry something extra since there’s a story behind them I can relate to.

Enjoy!
