Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned
The road to positivity is strewn with the abandoned vehicles of the faint-hearted. Peter McWilliams
Even though, I take pictures of all sorts of things, I often don’t take pictures of abandoned buildings because there is usually a sadness about them.

Here are a few things I found that in their own way show the abandonment of spaces and things.

This post was inspired by a prompt from Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned For this week’s photo challenge, show us abandoned. You can go literal, as I have, and share a photo of ruins, a desolate place, or your idea of a wasteland. Or you can interpret it in other ways, from images of overlooked things to forgotten people. In a post created specifically for this challenge, share a photo that shows us abandoned.
