Photo Fun Contest - Week 21 – “Old & Abandoned” Photography

in #photography3 years ago (edited)

This week we will have a look at something different altogether. Stuff we notice but don’t necessarily find pleasing to the eyes so we walk past and ignore it. However, these items sometimes present themselves as a very good subject for a great photo.

I am talking about “Old and Abandoned” items. It could be a building, a car, a ship in the harbour or any other arbitrary item lying around,….. you decide! The possibilities are endless.

I will leave it to your imagination,
and as always let's have good quality and creative photos.

Here are some examples of “Old and Abandoned” related Photos:

thank you for the entry

Me encanta, magnifica foto, te felicito mi Reina!

Una Poclain!
Hermosa excavadora de guayas, en su época espectacular maquina para excavar y realizar desazolves.
Vi tus dos fotos, me encantaron, como hombre del campo disfruto de ello, también las ruinas en un campo transmiten un mensaje de lo que algún día fue.

Thank you for your comments!

No sé si cumplo los requisitos para participar, pero por si acaso, aquí mando mi contribución

Amigo, para mi es una estupenda foto.
Bloques de barro crudo (bahareque), dintel de madera (creo)
esa vetusta puerta semi sostenida
y la ruina interior!
¡Qué mas se puede pedir!
Un abrazo.

Es un ejemplo de la arquitectura clásica de los pueblos castellanos, en realidad, heredada de las tradiciones arquitectónicas árabes, ya que durante muchos siglos estuvieron bajo su dominio. Me alegro mucho que te guste. Un fuerte abrazo

This is an awesome category @claudiaz! I could have done a few more entries, but I'll limit it to two. Here's my other one:

thanks for the entries @rwedegis

You're welcome!

I saw LOTS of OLD stuff traveling through Germany. I picked this one as I love its architecture, and...we both have the same name! :) Here is St.-Nikolai-Kirche, built in 1195!
