Welcome to this week’s round up, of the 41st installment of the Tuesday Photo Challenge. Once again, you blew me away with the volume and quality of your entries, as the response to the theme of Abandoned was just fantastic!!
There were a variety of interpretations to this theme, ranging from urban decay to lost objects and boats that were blown all over the place. Great images all around and wonderful posts! It’s great to see this much creativity being generated!
This is an image that I have shared before, as this couch was just left by the side of the road…
The part of this image that struck me funny is what I left out…if I had panned wide you would see the sign for the entrance to the town dump. This couch almost made it over there!
