Steve Davey lives in Orkney with his dog, Alfie. Their aim is to visit all of Orkney’s islands – inhabited and uninhabited.
If we’re lucky we’ll see some more photos by Steve. Meanwhile here are some from a recent visit.
It’s one of those houses – on an island – where the people left – leaving something of their lives behind them.
The kitchen/living room still looks ‘lived in’ with an old armed-chair by the fireplace.
One tap – the only source of water – still better than going out to the well in all weathers….
Why a drum kit in the bedroom? Orkney is known for musical talent – maybe there wasn’t much room to spare for such a big object?
Lives lived – memories – now standing empty.
