1. And I'm in!

I invented this photo, since I didn't have anything suitable otherwise. I thought I would post it early, either to inspire others who might be in the same place I was, or to evoke laughter from the rest!

2. I'll be honest. This is a hard one.

Which is all the more reason for the regulars and often lurkers to reach for it.

Hell, there were times in my life I could post a selfie except for the 'no people, no animals' cavoite.

3. I'm gonna try this one.

There are a few abandoned things near me that could be interesting to take pictures of.

5. I had to close my eyes and choose one.

Two other contenders--one I took just yesterday out for an early morning drive with my son in his convertible--and the other was one I originally took for the Spring contest!

6. How about that! I had to invent mine.

Yours is very good--shells aren't animal, but their former houses. That works for me!

I was throwing out my very old, ragged oven mitts and thought that somehow I could make them look abandoned. I think I succeeded, I think!

Ya done good!

7. I thought I'd put up something different.

The other two I have are buildings, which I suspect will be the subject of a lot of entries.

I've been known to "create" entries, too!

Do you like your new mitts?

8. And you did! It's also beautiful.

I'm still getting used to the new mitts, but at $10 EACH, I'd better!

10. There is one image that blew me away.

I won't say which one it is, but it blew me away the moment I saw it.

Sometimes our images transcend art, and take on a larger significance.

15. Thank you dear Sophie.

Of course, it wasn't my own photo that I was referring to.

17. Thank you! ❤❤❤

Your pic blows me away too. It's hard to compete with an English manor. ❤

18. Thanks!

And it was literally abandoned - a couple of 10o years ago - the family built a new mansion in Norfolk and literally up sticks and left the old manor house to rot in Oxfordshire. If I had been around then I would have moved in and claimed adverse possession!

19. I'm in!

My entry was taken about 1977 or so, Kodachrome. I chose to leave it as scanned so the "frame" around it is actually the overscan of the slide. I have a few others, cars ostensibly left on the island by the Carnegie family at Dungeness mansion.
