Holmur - Beauty in Decay
From the road, it looked just like another farm on a hill. We could see the detour with the little sign saying ‘Holmur’, an unpaved road going through a fence, and a big house in the distance, but nothing more. We entered the gate, walked through the path, past a small lake. On the other side we could still see the clearing rainclouds, and a small abandoned house. As we got near the main building we began to see a cemetery of vehicles. Old trucks, a red tractor, and all sorts of vintage models, all left there in the grass, unwanted by their previous owners, forgotten, so that time could take care of them. Almost every emblematic model was there: the VW beetle, the VW camper van, the Jeep, the Land Rover Defender, the Lada Niva, and several others. This looked like the place where the old cars, the forgotten ones, had come to die.%0A%0AEven though the place had an eerie feeling and atmosphere, it was astonishingly beautiful in a way. It only goes to show that we can be surprised by beauty everywhere, sometimes it’s just a question of looking at it from a different perspective or with a different light.
