Friendly Friday Photography Challenge Prompt – Abandoned

Friendly Friday

This challenge is alternately hosted, each Friday, by the following bloggers:
Amanda from Something to Ponder About , Snow from The Snow Melts Somewhere, and Manja from Manja Mexi Moving who is currently filling in for Snow, because she is somewhat “snowed under,” with work at the moment. Thanks so much, Manja.

Scroll down to find full Instructions on joining in with this challenge.

This week’s prompt, for you to interpret with your photographic genius, is:


What does ‘Abandoned,’ mean for you?

An abandoned shed or farm building, an old church or closed down mine shaft?

What windows!

It might mean a disused industrial facility or closed hotel

You might perhaps, interpret this theme in a more abstract way.

It is up to you.

Pretty as a painting

One can still find beauty in things that are ‘Abandoned”

      1. Yes, in fact some scientists think even the universe may be a cycle repeating over and over again although hopefully we dont repeat our lives( and mistakes) over again!

  1. Great variety for the theme! Sometimes abandoned can be beautiful like old ruins filled with history and sometimes I find it more scary for example an abandoned house with windows looking like black, sinister eyes. 🙂

    1. Maria, I think there is a tipping point between historic and interesting and downright creepy. I also feel that there is some unsettled business there evoking those eerie feelings. Places like Auschwitz, Chernobyl, an old supposedly haunted house in Iceland makes my hair stand on end yet a historic cemetery near my place doesn’t worry me at all. I guess it is all in our imagination; however, who knows, maybe there is something more?


    1. Thanks for posting the link to a quirky collection of artifacts. I love how you have interpreted the challenge. Who wouldn’t want to explore there? Although I do hope that torpedo is fully decommissioned! Lol


  2. This topic was brilliant and so thought provoking…history, beauty, melancholy all wrapped in one. Your photos are lovely too and I visited quite a few other posts as well in this thread and it was a treat. I have said this before but I must say it again…inspiration all around- thank you:) I did not have anything along these lines so I could not participate but I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the other posts here !
