Cottages I

I found this row of identical cottages just a couple of kilometers from the village of Wissenkerke in southwestern part of the Netherlands. I stayed in the village with my friend and we spent our days exploring the areas around. We were there in early spring, during the offseason, and most places were very quiet and almost deserted - no tourists, no bustle and hustle of the warm summer says. The absence of people make these cottages into sentinels of the small sand dunes and the sea on the other side. I think these cottages represented more of what was then what will be.

This image is one of the series photographs all exploring the depth and longing power of perspective. The viewer's attention is inevitably drawn to the point of convergence which we all interpret differently thus creating our own stories about this place.
