Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned



left without needed protection or care

left by the owner

no longer held or thought of : given up


Not to be confused with lost.

WordPress’ Cheri Lucas Rowlands posted the challenge with a great example of the interior of an abandoned building.  It’s apparent that I stick with exteriors.

  3. We are such a ‘throw away’ society, a real shame. The photo series tells a story.

  4. As a child it was a real treat to spend an afternoon at Conneaut Amusement Park. Unfortunate it is no longer available for families.

  6. amazing though to see a fairly new metal roof on it worth several thousand???? But it’s a nice shot.

  7. It’s rather unsettling to think of that school’s last day; building’s last sale; vehicle’s last ride; etc. Although, I can fully understand someone abandoning a malfunctioning umbrella. Sometimes, enough is enough!

  12. “Abandoned – Not to be confused with lost.” A very good distinction – yet sometimes difficult to make?

    I loved your first pic; there is something simultaneously beautiful and sad about it.

    • Yes, difficult to make. That’s why I didn’t post the single mittens on the street. Thanks for your good comments always, Stef

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
