Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 41

Lost and found!

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 Red Couch

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!

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Abandoned

Proceed with abandon!

Welcome to Week 41 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge. Last week’s challenge was extremely popular, as the world is filled with animal lovers of all kinds who love sharing images of those animals.  You were simply magnificent in your contributions!

This week’s challenge is a little different, but I figure that you may have come to expect that.  It gives a chance to do some story telling through your images, as your photo should relate the concept of Abandoned.  There are many directions, in which you can take this challenge, ranging from abandoned buildings to objects, or any other sense of abandonment that crosses your creative minds.

As usual feel free to stretch this week’s theme in any direction that you might want, as there are no boundaries and no goals other than to have fun!

Here’s a bit of a quirky take on the theme…

The-Lonely-Onion
The Lonely Onion

This shot came about, as I walked across a frosty parking lot after having lunch at a pizzeria; I figured that this onion may have found out that it was on the menu and decided to make a roll for it.

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

Looking forward to seeing the animals in your lives and what they do for their entertainment (and ours).  Be creative, have fun, and always be kind to animals!
