Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


For this week’s photo challenge, Cheri Lucas Rowlands asked that we show the word “abandoned” for our challenge. We can go literal, as she has, and share a photo of ruins, a desolate place, or our idea of a wasteland. Or we can interpret it in other ways, from images of overlooked things to forgotten people.

  1. These are great responses to the challenge Francine. The abandoned garage is almost poetic in its loneliness. 🙂

  2. Imagine the things that have been produced in the steel mill and what a shame those houses can’t be brought back to life , surely someone could use them.

  3. Love you take on the theme Francine.

  4. My favourites are the steel mill, Francine. Great shots.

  6. Splendid interpretation!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  7. You have included beautiful shots in your collection Francine. There is an aura of sadness around them.

  8. Beautiful pictures Francine, but so sad to see these places so run down. If only it was illegal to buy steel from abroad, how soon the mill could be filled with life again and maybe the houses have caring owners.

    Nice concept!

  10. Love these – there’s something particularly haunting about those white garage doors…

  11. Some really great pics here! Love them, even though they are so pitifully sad.

  12. How many dreams were abandoned when these places and cars were deserted? Nice compilation, Francine.
