Thematic Photographic: Abandoned





I'm a bit of a sucker for old, rusty bits of metal, or weathered paint on walls - it's the texture that appeals to me. Cobwebs are another thing that appeals to me. So when Carmi announced that his theme for Thematic Photographic this week would be abandoned, I knew exactly where in my files I wanted to look.

This abandoned car is beside a narrow walking track in the Port Hills of Christchurch, between a small stream and a cliff. It amazes me the lengths people will go to, to get an old car into an inaccessible spot, just so it can be left there to rust.

I know what you mean about cars drug to unlikely places and abandoned. You did a great job of capturing the beauty of nature trying to reclaim the ores wrenched from her soil.

Abandoned.

Lovely photos...I especially like the way the light works in both of them.
