Abandoned: Weekly Photography Challenge

the doctor will see you nowEarlier today we posted a series of photos on the themes of Abandonment and Urban Decay (uplifting stuff wasn’t it). I thought it might make a good theme for this weeks photography challenge too.

While not everyone will have an atmospheric abandoned factory to race out and photograph – hopefully it’s a theme that with a little imagination everyone can participate in.

  • Perhaps there’s an old abandoned building in your area?
  • Perhaps you’ve got something around the house that has been lacking attention (some old gym equipment in our garage springs to mind)
  • Or perhaps there’s something more symbolic that springs to mind that you could photograph?

It’s totally up to you – and we’re not going to judge you for what you photograph. The main thing is to get out and use that camera and show us what you end up doing!

Once you’ve selected the ‘Abandoned’ image that you’d like to share – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSABANDONED to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks challenge – Street Photography challenge where there were some interesting shots submitted.

    My first UrbEx, Highgate High Level station, which has been closed since 1954. The platform ends and wilderness begins.

    This abandoned branch of the tube network is now London's longest nature reserve (though the Highgate station part is not accessible, unless the gate happens to be left unlocked)

    Rural areas in Wisconsin or Michigan are just fantastic to find these hidden gems. Just be careful if you decide to enter one - animals and rotting floors await!
