It's old House3! - Monochrome Monday



I don't know. Is there this in all over the world?


There was this in a Kawashima kankyou rakuen in Aichi Japan.

A waterwheel! We have them in Ireland, I didn't know Japan had them too! Great photos.

I think you'd find them mostly in museums i Norway anyway. Interesting shots!

Carver said...

These are beautiful shots. I love the old waterwheel.

Fantastic! I love the second shot from the waterwheel.
Yes, in Germany we have/had it too. Here in the Black Forest you can visit some.

A great waterwheel - as Gudrund said: mostly in museums these days.

Liz said...

I think so.

You've captured the falling water wonderfully.

I love your old house shots. And I don't think waterwheels are very common anymore. Fantastic shots.

Interesting to see that water has been used for power in Japan too. ;-)

Beautiful choice for mono photos, they have a great "mood" to them!

There are a few water wheels around; mostly historical sites and museums. These images work nicely in black and white.

Good pictures Kazu.

Great subject for monochrome. We don't have many here in Israel, but that's because we don't have much water. There are a few here and there though.

Waterwheel do have a lovely beauty for monochrome. We have the largest working water wheel in the world on my island.

Great shot in B&W of the water wheel.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Oh, yes. Water wheels are everywhere they have either endured or been preserved.

This is a wonderful subject for monochrome. Good work!

Mojo said...

We have them, just not very many anymore. One of the better known historic sites in my city is Yates Mill which I've featured several times. Love your contrast in this shot!

Daryl said...
