There is an extraordinarily photogenic group of old fishing huts clustered together above a rocky beach at Langhammars, on Fårö, a small island off of Gotland. You take a tiny little ten-minute ferry from Gotland to get there, traveling back in time to an earlier era, when an entire village subsisted on fishing. Nowadays, only fifteen huts remain. Fårö is famous as the one-time home of Ingmar Bergman, who lived there until his death in 2007.
Deer antlers were traditionally affixed to the side of each hut, and were used to suspend fishing nets from, allowing them to dry in the sun. Today, however, this antler horn holds only a cobweb. The full-size version of this photograph is available from Fine Art America.
