It seems I have some kinda' obssesion on ruined houses, dontcha think?
Villa Encarnación was built in the early twentieth century for Manuel Llano and his wife, Mrs. Encarnación. Originally, the house was beautifully furnished; during the civil war was fitted out as field hospital and, after this, as accommodation for prisoners of war, sentenced to hard labor in the many civil works that a postwar country needs, and their guardians. After that, the house started to fall slowly into oblivion. A sad decadence story for a beautiful house, like so many other.
I met it for the first time nine to ten years ago, during some fieldwork near Arriondas (Asturias). I took a couple of fast photos with a disposable camera, and wrote a mental note to come back someday.
It had to pass ten years for me to come back. I greeted some unfriendly horses that roam the property, and took about a dozen photos. After a hard selection process, this was the one.
I'll be honest: There are better potos of this house; you can find them in the web. So, I decided to differentiate mine from them by enhancing it a little bit.
Yours is the last word on whether I succeeded or not.
